Here's one I found 'online' so I can't just cruise around the county and get the answer...

another harvester with a fancy header on it...

I've never seen one in a Monroe County field but if I did I'd probably stop and take a few pictures ;) ;) ;)

Anyone know for sure what it is :o :o :o




Here's a link for you BRD.

Here's another one I wonder about...  obviously in Germany (you can see a flag in the background)...

what does that fancy steel tubing 'extension' on the wheel do ??? ??? ???

Sorry the picture is so big...  you have to slide over to see what I'm looking at!!!




The only thing I could think that that steel tubing is for is for additional flotation, if they get into some soft muck.  Never seen anything like it around here... perhaps that is the European version of duals?

That thought did cross my mind but I just don't see it doing much in our kind of mud... 

I was stationed right out in farm country and I don't remember seeing anything like it when I was there.

That's not even a big one. I f you go to youtube, you can find harvesters like that chopping 20 rows at a time. It's absolutely amazing.

I see a few of them around here...  not as many as JD or CaseIH but the number does seem to be growing!

I think the nearest dealer is Rosebush......

Kuhn on the other hand is s a shrewd player.  Thy have partenered with JD so many JD products are Kuhn collaborated.

I'll stick with NH and Kubby.

I didn't know anyone else in Monroe County knew where Rosebush is... 

I've seen some of their equipment over at a dealer in Liberty Center in the state that's round on both ends and tall in the middle ;D ;D ;D

I've been keeping my eyes open and I found this picture on Wiki...

appears that it is a wheel used in the mud...

not sure what they're farming like that though...

rice maybe...  cranberries grow in a flooded field too.

I know there is a small area up around Saginaw where I think it's mint they grow in the bottomlands!

Check this one out. That's a monster! It's called an Octopus




The video isn't showing up on my monitor so I'm linking direct to the YouTube:

Maybe this is why the MCRC is auctioning off some of their old equipment...

they're going to replace four tractors with one of these!!!

In reality this would work great in more open areas...   

they'd be all day getting around mailboxes and driveway culverts around here ;) ;) ;)
