Re: Some NEMO corn harvest pics.

Nice Pics
Whats That yielding?- We've been dry here in N.C. and been lucky to make 100 in the bottoms.

Interesting Choice of equipment- Challenger Tractor, Deere Combine, and Case Corn Head.

I think its time for the combine to be the same color as your tractor

Re: Some NEMO corn harvest pics.

case heads to a nice job of eatin the stalks compared to older JD heads....which is why i bet he's got the case head. Our 693 with auto height makes em look that good as well.

How much did the bish kit cost?

Re: Some NEMO corn harvest pics.

Ebertfarms is right we really didn't like the job the JD heads did on the stalks.(plus it was only a year old when we traded our 2388) Our red head still does alot better job than my neighbors new JD head.

I think the adapter cost around 1500 by the time we had shafts made and the wiring.

Corn is making 116-140 so far. We only have about 130ac done. Feederhouse clutch went out lastnight and drier problems have really slowed us down plus a little rain.

Quote:Was in the reverser cause a hose broke off the bottom? If it was I would talk to JD bout warrenty cause there has been a lot of those burn up because of a week elbow on the bottom hose..

No this was the electric clutch that ingauges the feeder house. Which it could of caused a fire from the sparks flying off of it. Not to bad I guess for there only being 15hrs on the machine.

Re: Some NEMO corn harvest pics.

The reel takes about 30 min to put on using a loader. We only had about 30 acre of down corn so far, so we'll probably take the reel back off today.

Our trucks are CH613 Macks.

It is an MT755 and yes that is our leg in the background.

That truck is nowhere close to legal, but were only hualing a half mile. Even if were hualing to the local elevator which is 12 miles away we really don't have to worry about the DOT, they like to sit around roads that go into Iowa and Illinois.

Nice Pics. In Nebraska we can run 15% overloaded and still be legal DURING HARVEST AND ONLY WHEN HAULING FROM THE FIELD. That is nice because you don't ever have to worryas much about getting a ticket for being over weight

Great pictures, like the big tires on the back, keep the John Deere. About the corn head, we have some that have CIH and run a John Deere corn head and the same the other way, it is what ever you think is best for you.
