Last year we finished after it snowed. The best I found is when I thawed during the day and got crusty at night I went in the night. The head floated nice. If we are talking about beans!

If your having an icing on the inside of the combine problem. After -10 C the snow will stay snow and go through the combine. Any warmer then that the friction inside the combine will turn it to ice.

ditto on the run in the cold or wait for the melt. harvesting at near the freezing point of 0C or 32F will result in plugged seives and crop on the ground very quickly

They say plastic sieves don't let the snow stick as much

We tipped the feeder house back enough to keep snow out of the header. Then it could still flex.

Cut back in rented land and get done earlier. In all seriousness some farmers are pushing the acreage requirements on their equipment to the max and was going to be shut down because of weather. It has been a ticking time bomb.
