How fast do you combine

Never have done the "power stop" myself.  The only guys i know who did it was when they bought a brand new 1680, also their 1st and last red combine, anyhow a company guy was in field on day 1 when the power stop sheared the bolts on the rotor drive hub.

I've read about that power stop technique but it always sounded like supreme abuse to the whole power train so I'd never do it.

I’ve heard of guys doing that and then having plugged combine.  We never do it either.  Guys get worked up too much about loss.  It takes an incredible amount of kernels to equal just half a bushel in wheat.  I check once a year and it’s when we drop straw to bale.  Even with everything being dropped right behind the combine the most I come up with is 10-20 good kernels per foot.
