BIG TIME Colorado Wheat Harvest 12 Claas Lexion Combines
Video I recorded in July at a farm in the Byers Colorado Area as they harvest their 2020 winter wheat crop. In this video the farm harvests wheat with their 12 new Claas Lexion 7400 combines with 35 foot wide Honeybee draper heads. Also cutting wheat in a John Deere S790 combine with a 740FD head that the local Deere dealer was demonstrating to the farm. The farm is hauling the grain from the combines with two of their Case IH 500 tractors pulling a Demco 1400 grain carts and a Claas Xerion 5000 tractor also pulling a Demco grain cart.
I was at this farm for 3 days of the wheat harvest with different shots from several different fields on the Colorado plains.
This video took quite a bit of time to edit so if you enjoyed it please give it a LIKE and feel free to comment and share.

leaving the corners is the fastest most productive way to harvest not wasting time going in circle to get a clean cut. back and forth cutting as most do now is not the most productive way to combine a field.

Thats one big field, the biggest field Ive seen was a 800 acre hay field that my brother round baled with a Kubota M108 and a Vermeer 605M super.round baler I dont know how many days it took him all I know is it was a prettu wet year I know it took quite a few days to get it done. But Id gather this is more than 800 acre these guys are doing

cut lot of wheat in my time cant figure out why they turn so short and leave all that wheat we always turn back left so we could keep it square
Scott B
Scott B Pred 2 mesiacmi
Just curious here. If I had to guess. to have basically 4 million dollars in equipment in those fields. How many acers do they have. It's gotta be at least 20-30 thousand if not more. To have that amount of equipment. You would have to have at least that much to justify paying for that amount of combines alone
Shain Andrews
Shain Andrews Pred 28 dňami
I'd say your 4M is short. 4M wouldn't even cover the combines, much less the tractors & their carts. Semis & trailers. Fuel truck & fuel. Estimated acreage is well sort too. In the end it doesn't really mater. It is their operation it either works or it doesn't.

Hi Mike. How many kilos of wheat did you get from a hectare?

Corn is 56 pounds per Bushel or 25.25 kilos per bushel and wheat is 64 pounds or 29 kilos. Hope that helps.

@RAY pitts thank you for comment Ray. I don't know the unit of measure in bushels, i am farmer too from turkey. If the rain is good on my land, we harvest 600-700 kilos of wheat.( some farmers testing different seeds and reach 800-900 kilos) Can you tell me one bushel of wheat equals how many kilograms? sorry for my bad english.

Would it not save time and fuel in larger non-pivot irrigated fields like that if the harvesters cut to the center and started a counterclockwise spiral to keep the headder in the grain more by eliminating turnaround and cornering time?

Would it not be more cost efficiënt to get the job done with less, but bigger combines? Thinking of 7700/8700 models... I can only imagine that the terrain does not allow for +35 feet headers.

About 30yrs ago, I went with my late Grandfather who was a Versatile, Steiger, and then a Case IH dealer out of Western Kansas to Gene Linnebur's farm. It was the largest farm operation that I had seen. At the time he had just purchased all new Case IH combines. Over that summer, I went along with my Grandfather 3x's to Gene's farm, always delivering a implement or a mover one time, and lots of misc parts. My Grandfather and Gene were good friends, and had done lots of business of the years. Being only 15 at the time, I was just impressed at all the buffalo that they raised, even got so sample some of the meat on one visit. Gene was always a very easy going guy, and we would always get into his pickup and he would drive myself and grandfather around and look at equipment and discuss changes he wanted to make. I was invited back by Gene to help with Harvest but never did make it.

often used so as not to over load the drum its takes 30 mins with knife to clear a wrap round. best to keep going than have to stop work out the loss of cutting time a driver will load the drum to run nicely. if you did the job you would know anyway now you do now.

I spent College summers days in the wheat fields in Coloradpo northwest of Denver. I was amazed by the thick dark clouds forming with a little white puff of cloud over the Rockies in the mornings that then grew into such huge dark clouds in the afternoon. It was always hit or miss for us. But in the evenings it was always a spectacular lighting storm off to the east.

Hi from Australia, QLD Mike, Great video as always....👍 Pretty impressive set-up they got there... After running our new CLAAS 8900's last year, got to say they are the best harvester on the market today on operating cost $ to the hectare.. By the way our New Versitile DT 610's are running absolutely brilliant, thanks to your channel we made the change to Versitile..😉 Stay safe

I can only assume if they have 12 combines this is not a “average farm”. They have thousands of acres of different crops. I can only tell that this is a very well organized operation! Do you happen to have the acreage of the farm? (I got the popcorn 🍿) 😁
