Re: 6290+Armer Salmon
What do you think of these harvesters? I think some of them
had two sets of bogies so you could open up the field with
them. :-)
Re: 6290+Armer Salmon
Hi James F,

yes, these harvester's are good, a bit slower getting a
field done with only 2 rows compared to the 6-9 and even 12
row harvester's wot are out today but i think these are a
good exaple of a pull type harvester, i dont reckon much to
the trash which is left behind on the field, it chops the
green stalk off the beet but leave's it hole and chucks it
out onto the field, compared with the self propeled models
which chop it and leave's a good finish which is easy enough
to plough in but with this it need's disking or some kind of
cultivation just to brake it up or even try to bury it.
We fit the narrow tyres to the tractor to start off with to
open up the fields of beet (headands and a few passes in the
middle) but the narrow tyres were proveing that they dont
give much grip when working in wet conditions or even hilly
fields so when all fields are opened up the tyres are
changed back to the normal tyres.
But overal i think this a good machine and does a good job
harvesting the beet.

Re: 6290+Armer Salmon
Its true what you say about the tops, but its better that
way if you want to graze them- they make great feed for cows
etc. We have a single row Armer with the chain-type conveyer
at the back, instead of the carousel. We pull it with our
1978 Ford 7600 fitted with pretty wide tyres, so they
destroy a couple of drills when opening up! We recently made
a new slide for the back and wired it up to make it 'road
legal'. I might post a few pics of it soon
:-) ;-)
