9760 and Shelbourne head
2005 JD 9760 with a "new to me" Shelbourne Reynolds RSD 24 stripper head for rice. The head is a 2006 model and was delivered yesterday. It's 24' wide and has the step drive for the stripper rather than the variable speed. Step drive is supposed to transmit 10% more power to the stripper.

The guys in the cab are installing the monitor for the stripper and table auger speed. Since the hood and dome are solid these can't be seen and a monitor is almost a necessity.

I'll use this machine and an older CIH 2188 to harvest about 2200 acres of rice in Arkansas this fall. I've also got corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton but rice is the only crop I'll use the Shelbourne to harvest.

Congratulations Russell, very nice equipment! I hope this equipment work a long time without problems and you make a good bussines.

Some questions about 9760STS, what are the diferences between 9760STS and 9660STS?

When you start the rice harvest we hope a lot pictures here!

Regards

Tas,

We're just now planting rice. Its been wet here since the first of April. I did manage to get about 850 acres planted in March but a late frost has burned it back. We're thinking it will recover but its still early.

M@Nel,

I believe the differences between the two are mainly grain tank size and horsepower.

Re: 9760 and Shelbourne head
You see a lot of stripper headers for rice harvest. I guess the idea is not to take the straw?
Some also take it to their wheat fields. I can understand you need lots of power for the rice. But for wheat?
They want to double crop beans after. So a stripper is the weapon of choice. They can harvest earlier and gain some growing time for the beans.
But in a wheat field you can cut with 36' drapers. And they take a 24' stripper header? Which takes LESS material into the combine. I think I'm missing sonething here. Maybe you can help me out? TIA

Thanks for your reply Russell ;-)

Martin, Russell might be able to give us some more info on your question; I dont know anything about rice, so I cant comment,

Re: 9760 and Shelbourne head
MartinM,

We run the stripper in rice for the exact reason you mentioned....less straw. The benefit to taking less straw is you can then increase speed. I can consistantly run 50% faster with the stripper than a machine with a draper or conventional head and have smaller grain losses.

I don't run mine in wheat as I don't feel its necessary and the maintenance on the stripper is higher than a regular head.
