Deere is the only company making the round modules. The Deere pickers are by far a more user friendly design and in the grand scheme of things cheaper to operate due to their efficiency. With the Deere pickers you never have to stop picking. You roll the built module on the back and carry it to a turn row or let off where ever. It can be moved with a tractor to a staging area near the road. This is especially important on muddy years, where there are creek crossings, or just terrible field roads in general. You don't have to worry about getting a truck way back off the road and back out again once loaded. With Module Express you have to unload the module where the truck can pick it up. A lot of time is wasted driving the picker back and forth instead of picking. With the rectangle modules you still have to tarp so it equals out close to the plastic material the Deere pickers use. The tarps are reusable but you have to put them on manually. 5 mins instead of the 30 secs it takes to spray paint a number and move on to the next one. Time is money especially at harvest time. The rectangle modules aren't moved much. Usually 3 times at most. Picked up in the field, unloaded in a staging area at the gin, then loaded into the gin it self. There usually isn't much left behind as you would think. Its not like a pile of hay with no strings.Beastbubba wrote: ↑Sat Sep 22, 2018 7:36 amReally hope a round cotton baler is in the base game, maybe even the jd one #fingers crossed.
I diden't realise that case made 1/2 sized box moduels untill this video came out... and apperantly there is an auger wagon that makes them too now... from what i gathered, the round bales cost alot more to make due to the wrapping, and the old school and these new 1/2 sized moduels don't get any wrapping nor twine, so it saves on cost. But cotton falls off them everytime they move...
@BigC92 I got tired of typing. This should answer your questions.
