Doe not know in bu but so far the highest day average we get was 40t/hour.
In Wheat 6t/ha and 18% moisture we got up to 72t/h but it was not all day long so it does not count.
It was with 8010 and 9010 with 30' headers.

I filled up 36 semi's one day with a 9750 and 12 row corn head in 260 bushel irrigated corn in Texas. I can't tell you how many bushels in total, the trucks rolled in, got filled and left. It was a big day though, I started at 7 am and finished about 10.30 pm. Didn't stop at all and had two carts beside the combine all day.

P.s not trying to promote deere. Any big combine with a 12 row would have done it in those conditions.

15 and one half hours without fueling? Man it must be cheap to thresh corn compared to most other crops.
I remember reading about a 9750 running 16 hours with out fueling.
If I ran a 9750 16 hours with out fueling the only noise for the last 5 hours would be the radio.

That's only about 2,000 bushels per hour.

During 7 hours of harvesting corn yesterday I averaged 4,200 bushels per hour (63,000 bushels had I gone 15 hours) using a 585R and a 1230 corn head in 220 + bushel corn at 20% moisture. I used a little over a half tank (or 130 gal. at 1 gal per acre). Going to do it all over again today too.

That was actually the reason i had to stop, no fuel. I am sure their would be classical humming from that radio of yours don.

Actually 60's and 70's pop rock. (all the 20 somethings
)
I do stand by my statement, you corn guys sure don't use much fuel compared to red spring threshing.

Ah a man of great taste. You are correct, I cut a lot of wheat as well and about 11-12 hours of full time cutting is about what we get out of a tank then.

cutting 110bpa milo with our 2188 30ft head at 5.5-6.3mph until everything was to wet, the milo was still kinda green. Its our first year with this machine so i don't have any solid number yet what it will do. I know that i the cart couldn't go dump and make it back fast enough. Doing the math i guess thats 2200bpa, but like i say no solid all day number yet.
