Pattinson has some demo stats. The one I saw was about 1500 bph in durum average on a nice day and dry durum. The other one was barley with 1800bph avg. not exactly impressive. Actually been doing that with my 760tt this year

With the dry harvest conditions all rotors machines will have big capacity this year. Last year would have been a much better year to see a difference in the different type of rotor designs.

I would definitely hope it's better than that. We were doing around 1200 bushels an hour with a cr9090 and a cr9080. We were only running about 70% engine power because the graincart couldn't keep up. Probably could have gained another mile and hour if we had the ability to get it away from the combines this year.

There are videos and comparisons all over Twitter. Has been on a few farms with multiple claas combines, one class owner told me during the day the throughput was even to a bit better than the claas, in the evening, the claas had a very slight advantage.
Sounds like they have been working quit well, going to take a couple years to get them out by the sounds of it, but we will see many of them I’m sure.

I think it’ll be a very good machine but it makes me wonder what everyone should do with the STS series because I’d say the twin rotor will be superior to them for sure. The sieve area and lack of shoe augers is worth getting rid of the last 25 years of deere machines alone!

I talked to a fella who ran a hdr header last year and he preferred the Macdon over it. He is green all the way except the heads fwiw

Yes the HDR or whatever they call the new deere hinging drapers. We didn’t get into details. This guy switched to Macdon in 2017 after having fd deeres. Grows lot of edible beans and thought Macdon did way better job.

Thanks, the ribs on the drapers looks interesting for seed saving.
Not going to take long for the header market to heat up again.
