In my area that would be HIGH! The highest here is $400/cutter head hour. I charge $200 an hour but the cost per ton between the two of us works out to be about the same or cheaper in my favor. I have a JD 6710 that has 340hp. The other is a new Claas 9??

In haylage I average about 85 ton per cutter head hour. That depends on how heavy the windrows are raked because I won't pound my machine across a rough field or expect the trucks to. In corn there again it is dependent upon the quality of the corn and field conditions. That being said in 65% moisture good corn I'm at about 95-100 ton. I run the processor very tight to make sure the grain is crushed. We had a lot of very poor yielding corn this year so the average may have been more like 60 ton per hour.
