Great thinking, no more requests for the Big X Cargo needed as mod aswell :)

Although I would still prefer my methode by using helpers to drive with a wagon next to the chopper while I unload the other combination. :)

I do like the idea for helpers driving beside harvested... That's pretty sharp on your part... But on smaller fields that don't work as well.

Depends on your setup. On Chellington when I first did this, there was no 12 row Krone yet. I used the 6 row and a Lely Tigo trailer.
Could let the tractor turn by itself upto 4 times before it got too far away from the chopper to be filled.

But you have to start on the correct side, so the tractor will turn onto the correct way (dunno anymore how it works exactly) and making some headland with the chopper first, so the chopper stops earlier than the tractor to give the tractor also space to turn.

Again. Something I've never thought of or even imagined. Does that really work? That is just great. A completely new way of chaffing for me :mrgreen:
Thanks Erwin :hi:

Anyone noticed the Colossus dumping sugarcane onto the sugarcane planter?

I don't believe it is tippling into a planter, as planters plant billets of sugarcane which are ~1ft (~0.3m) long, while what's in the trailer looks much more like chaff which would be useless.

The planter's working width is just 1m :shock:

I hope the workers can make a decent job planting sugarcane cause I'll not be doing that :mrgreen:

Btw, I wonder what the yield of the sugarcane is? :hmm:

It's regrowing. So you plant it once and you are fine.
