Re: Is this a new combine in the works?

I see your point, but take this combine for example.  It appears to have 4 large 'floatation' tires on it, but how much does it weigh?

If it carries 1,000 bu, that alone is 60,000# of soybeans or wheat, PLUS the weight of the combine, grain tank, etc, etc.   We're probably talking 100,000#, carried on 4 points of contact.   That is 25,000# on each tire, assuming a balanced load.   That is more than my whole combine weighs, maybe even with a full grain tank.   In our soils, if it is 'too wet' we can see the combine tracks for the next 2 years.
