New Holland TM 140 taking silage in.
Re: silage
cant understand why you fill trailers from the left with
forager when its much easyer from otherside ,forager driver
has all his controls on his right.
Re: silage
We drive on the left too. Let the dumptrailer driver fill
the trailer themselves first and then the harvester operator
fills up the last bit. They don't need to look at the
controls anyway...
Re: silage
if the driver is familiar with the equipment, looking at the
controls shouldnt be necessary.
Re: silage
suppose its each to their own, our boss prefers to fill
trailers himself, we only fill our own trailers if we notice
he's on his phone, just to make it a bit easyer.
Re: silage
In the Netherlands in the area where I live, 20 years ago
everybody was driving with their trailers on the left side.
Forage harvesters were even not able to turn the spout 90
degrees on the right side.
However, when trucks were introduced in mainly corn harvest,
drivers of those trucks were not able to see what was going
on as they are sitting on the left side of the truck (in
NL). Therefore most forage harvesters were adapted to
right-side loading, so that truckdriver and harvesterdriver
could communicate better.
Re: silage
yes I know what you mean, in the uk you do see a few but not
that many trucks being used to cart corn silage, but on the
continent,NL, Germany etc it will be quite normal as you
say. Most of our contacting work is out over Halifax &
Huddersfield area of West Yorkshire & is mainly grass
silage, most of the nearest maize crops to us are over near
York & Ripon areas, North East England.
Re: silage
I guess it is the same with grain; here in Tasmania we cart our grain with trucks & there is not alot of on farm storage, where in the UK & other European countries, grain is carted with trailers & on farm staorage is the norm.

Here in Tasmania we do the majority of our silage carting with trucks too. Loader wagons are also used quite alot too.
