Speed mainly and less risk of rock in combine. Also I have a 42 ft rigid header swather 36. Once the sun starts to go down the beans are tougher to cut with the combine head so if they are in a swath maybe your days are a bit longerWhat advantage are you hoping to get over just using the rigid head?
I agree shatter would be a concernMy initial first thought was that it would be the equivalent of sickle shatter x1000.
How many days ahead of the combine did u swath?Did it last year. Worked great. Downside was it seemed to get the beans dirtier and we got downgraded to a 3.
Plan on getting a flex header before beans this year though.
Zero. Combined right behind the swather.How many days ahead of the combine did u swath?
