We were hit with a 60 mph wind that scattered the canola swaths something terrible. The crop is still not quite ready to pick up. I am contemplating ways of putting 2 pick ups on one 30 foot straight cut header. Any suggestions?

Sund Manufacturing in Newburg, ND makes a pickup to fit a 30 header. They are used allot for edible beans, peas, lentils, etc. Would think it would work great for your application. Don't know about price.

Had a call from a neighbor yesterday, wanted to let me know we'd had hail the other day, he said after three days of pissing around (his words)
with pickups they gave up, put lifters on they're straight cut headers and are going out to basically cut the whole field again.

Swaths blew for everyone 4x4ord. You are not alone.
Don,their swaths are that evenly spread?
Ours are scattered but can't see straight cut going through the better swaths. How about the pickup sized piles? I think FEL with forks might work to pull apart.
Most of the dry scatter shelled out any way here.
One f'ing mess and a shame at these prices. Screw 2012.:mad:
