BrentinND 120007 84 Pinto Bean Harvest either
Pinto Bean Harvest
2001 MX 220 with a Artsway One-Step bean rod in central ND.
The One-Step rods and then windrows the beans. It takes 6
30" rows in a pass, the next pass you lay 6 more rows with
it giving you 12 rows or 30' to harvest with combine. The
rod hates rocks since it is running in the ground and you
are basicly pulling or cutting the beans off at there roots.
Pintos this year has some frost damage, harvested a below
average crop but received almost double the price as in
2003.

Re: Pinto Bean Harvest
The dividers on the front would normally seperate any beans
and vines that are in front of tires, but being a less than
average crop there was very few spots that they were needed.

Re: Pinto Bean Harvest
rear shot opening pass, you can see a rack i added on the
right to carry extra 1" square rods, you bend or break the
rods from hitting a rock, also added 2 tool boxes, one for
tools the other carries bearings, bolts, etc

Re: Pinto Bean Harvest
Mark,

All of our soybeans are just flexed off(mowed), with edible
beans; pinto's, navy's, black turtle's, kidney's, etc the
pods lay much closer to the ground, most years i would say
close to 25-30% of the pods are on the ground. I have tried
to use a land roller after planting and then tried using a
flexhead in the fall, cutterbar losses were close to 40%
This is why we "pickett or knife" them. I do almost all of
my "digging" at night when the humidity is high, it seems to
cause a lot less shelling and shattering of the pods. It is
a slow - boring process and any amount of rocks makes it
worse. Unfortunatly most of my land has a fair amount of
rocks on it but Pinto Beans has been a profitable crop for
me in season and makes for exellant wheat or corn ground the
following. I hope this answers your question, if not let me
know and I will gladdly talk more about it with you.

Brent
