I’m operating a Class Lexion R585 harvest combine with a 20′ Honey Bee Header. We are harvesting medium grain rice in the northern Sacramento Valley (Richvale, California).
Down in the comment section are time-stamps. If you like, skip around the episode.
Out in California we call “grain carts” bank outs. Same concept just self-porpelled. We do have a grain cat hooked up to a Case 260 but that was shadowing our other combines at a different rice field. We also have a John Deere 9660 CTS and CTS II harvest combines.
Notice we don’t own any single rotor combines. This is to avoid issues they have faced with rotor loss.
