And it begins

I've put 100 acres on the new to me 1688. Love the machine, beans on the heavy ground are doing great considering the year. Just finish 30 acres on the sand, they did better than I expected too!

Added bonus pic of the 806 wheatland on the auger, transferring beans, blending..... Dads 806 under the auger, its still midway through its paint job so no hood and the 856 custom pulling the green wagon.

Made it with no problem! That thought did cross my mind when I took the pic

It usually happens on this farm!! That’s why we don’t celebrate the light at the end of the tunnel, until the combine is being backed in the shed the night we finish, then it’s actually like a light in the tunnel, and then we celebrate! Worst that can happen then, shed door won’t shut, or falls off!! 🤣

God's honest truth right there....... and the shed door may actually fall off some years it seems !!!!!

I took out about 3000 bushels of corn Saturday. The latest was 105 day Pioneer PO589 and was about 18.5 % moisture. The other loads were 98 to 102 day Wyffel's, at about 16.4%. Going in the bin, will just air dry at that rate. The propane in my tank is going on 3 years now. Have to check the burner to be sure it works. 

Soybeans here were a little bit disappointing. Just over 50 bushels an acre but more rain sure would have helped. And I have about 2 acres of sandy  sidehills that yielded 0.

Some more pictures of our bean harvest. Spent 3 hrs in this line. Have 50 acres left but rained last night and going to rain more today so it will be a few days before we can go back at it.

Very nice Nate! 1460?

Got my corn done that I wanted to, got the grain head on the machine, will try the beans tomorrow. We did get frost last night, that has to be a good thing.

Yes 1460,   We have a 1480 we run corn with

Finished today....one farm corn went 236, the other 242.  Beans 74.....very happy with yields.

1460 needed a starter, separator drive v-belt idler, and turbo (after freak precleaner/aircleaner fire took it out)....but for a 45 year old machine it did well.

What did you replace the turbo with? TO-4 or something more modern?

I guess fall is officially upon us here in my part of MN.  Worked all day getting the combine ready, and at 6:00 this evening, the dust began to roll! E6321DE4-2813-468F-B907-33AD282479BE.thumb.jpeg.1b9af78b7155bda8d125336f08388374.jpeg

Probably could have got a truck load out today, but we updated the combines air filter setup, to a pre cleaner style.  That took a little longer than I thought it would have.  But we’ll be ready to go after it tomorrow!! 

Good luck! Looks kind of like my area! Hills n trees.

Used off of a 1680 with IH 466, not sure what it was, but it gave her just a little bit more power (scientifically gauged by "butt dyno").  1680 it was taken off of my end up being our next machine if a deal can be struck.....

My 1460 is running like a wild man after the pump and injector job this year. I may be crazy but it seems like its using less fuel too. One thing on the fuel consumption, last year I just couldn't get the beans, (and volinteer corn), through it. Was not an issue this year.

Ours seems to be using less oil now......maybe the turbo bearing was starting to go bad and it was drinking a sip or two through the intake....hard telling.  At least the incident didn't seem to hurt the engine internals.

That doesn’t surprise me, better pressure feeding the nozzles, better atomization in the cylinders, I bet it runs like a new machine!!!

Makes me wonder how the tractors would respond to a rebuild?

Does it say 115? It’s blurry, but it looks like 115

Yes it does. Was as high as 154 when I saw it at times
