What ideas are there for combining in the snow
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.
we combined the other day at plus 3 snow on the ground . worked nice but the peas were standing
mine are flat after snow in sept
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.
