Few pictures and a video of us harvesting HRWW near Radville, SK. This field was yielding 70-95 bu/ac and protein of 12.0-12.5%. Best crop we have ever harvested. The field average is probably in the high 70s but it's hard to tell exactly as it went into the same bin as other fields.

Next harvest, I need to do more experiments to try to increase capacity as you can tell by the pictures, we were only able to travel 2.5-3 mph.

Congratulations on your crop. It's safe to say you out yielded 90% of the winter wheat in mb this year. But if your going to grow high yielding winter wheat be prepared to go slow. There is lots of years we struggle to make over 3 mph with 40" heads. This year wasn't one of them at least in the winter wheat.

Gotta love a good crop not hit by a snow horizontalling event.:)

Luckily these pictures are about a month old. I did have 250 acres that were rained on for a month. They were cut much lower. I can't believe the straw on this stuff.

I did find that one of the silicone couplers between the turbo and the intercooler piping was torn and leaking a lot of boost. But for the most part I was seive loss limited. I couldn't get any more than 80% engine power before it started throwing over.

Great looking crop....How is the fusarium level? Neighbours here is worth 85c/bush because of high fusarium.

Do you find your d75 follows the terrain very well, I have the d60 45 and like it but wonder how much better the flex would be in cutting peas and lentils in the hills..

I find now I have slight misses running threw revenes and have to be real carful not to push corners in.... On the flatter fields it's fine

Are they worth the thirty grand extra over the d60, I'm guessing in canola and wheat your back at rigid?

should come help some guys here, still winterwheat standing,
but ya 2.5 mph for a 9080 is kinda slow especially since your cutting so high.
oh wait didn't see it was a 45ft head, thats not too bad if you hit 90bpa.

Elevators bought it as 0.6% fusarium or lower. Graded a number 1.

To be honest, I haven't got to use the flex mode yet. I planned on growing soybeans or peas but haven't got to yet. I need to pick rocks better on some land before I can. We bought the FD because we got an extremely good deal on it. Substantially less than what you pay now.

So far I'm very happy with the head. It's amazing coming from a 1999 39' HoneyBee. The knife has about 5500 to 6000 acres on it now and will finish this year and possibly do next year too. I had to replace one knife section and one guard the other day for the first time.
