Re: Is this a new combine in the works?

[ Edited ]

That should be a valid concern.  My thinking would have been to figure out a better way to move grain away from the combine and not make it such a behemoth.  The majority of silage cutters don't have twenty ton containers hitched to their machines, and they harvest 80 acres in short order.

 

Then again, perhaps this size isn't seen as a behemoth in some mega farmer's eyes.

 

I would think a strategic move would have been to make high capacity machines more agile and less cumbersome.  One could automate grain cart operations with smart computers, having more than one to keep the grain flowing from the combine.  Agility and flexibility is a better fit for many operations, rather than investing so much captial in one machine.
