Big X V12
I can say this is the largest self propelled forage harvester I have ever seen. The exhaust is huge, and they didn't even bother putting a hitch on it.

Re: Big X V12
Heh, i have three theories about the hitch...

As you can see here:
http://www.farmphoto.com/FPv2/message.aspx?mid=368649
this big x has a hitch, and this one is photographed at a dealer... (Picture 3)

Option 1: Hitch is extra equipment, and needs to be payed for extra...

Option 2: There was a hitch, but someone needed a hitch just like that, and took it off...

Option 3: The dealer took the hitch off, and is charging extra to earn some money on the side...

Re: Big X V12
Why need a hitch if your chopper can harvest 12 rows at the time?? You can drive next to the chopper with starting the field. European farmers seldom use a hitch to attach a trailer on.

An other theory can be this: The EasyCollect 12 row (or 14) was to heavy so the dealer planned to add some extra weight on the end of the chopper and took the hitch of to attach it after he added the backweight.

Re: Big X V12
In our area, typical practice for SP harvesters is to pull a tractor with a wagon or have a truck next to the harvester, so there is no need for a hitch. Some of the smaller ones will pull wagons though.

Re: Big X V12
Nice harvester.
This will probally sound retarded but this is my theory:
The harvester is so big and productive that the person who bought it ethier has a big farm or is doing a lot of custom harvesting so having to stop and hoock-up and unhoock the wagon takes time and to a custom harvester or farmer time is money so just having the trailers drive beside as soon as they get into the field saves time. It means the harvester should be going strait all day. (-breakdowns,refueling,etc)
Thats my theory on why there isnt a hitch on the harvester.:-[
