Watched a video of a 9560 with 8 rows doing corn.  Good Lord,,,,, looked like he was going at least 10 MPH! :o
The old Gleaner E didn't quite have that in it!  We've come a long ways. :thumbup:

We run a 8780 on the corn head, rotor is set up for strictly corn, can run anywhere from 3.5-4 mph depending on the corn, the rotor and motor can handle it, just don't have enough sieve area and you'll spit corn out the back then.

Have a 9690 for beans, would love to find a corn head for that and see what it'll do. Father just spent too much on the old cornhead though that won't fit the newer machine, all poly, new snapping roll knives and stripper plates. The 9690 will handle a 30' head at 4+ mph cutting 14-15% beans with green stems yet. Ran some good dry beans at 5mph on 5/8 mile long rows that would fill the 300 bushel hopper on the machine in one round, almost took the grain cart to that field.

Primed it yesterday, also got the new air/fuel supply tube built.






Old one didn't use em, but since the new tube is over three feet long I drilled holes 120 degrees apart then tapped them for 1/4" bolts, jammed the bolts on the inside with nuts, cut what was left on the outside off then welded in place to keep the oil tube centered.

Slipped on the ice but didn't fall but still took me out of commission for almost a week. Have a cat scan scheduled for Wednesday, orthopedist thinks not only do I have the bulging disc and the torn one, but that I also cracked at least one vertebrae. Getting rear ended, the gift that just keeps giving.

I've been topping a lot of trees out with the wife's help, but after I got some logs out of the woods finally, bending over with a chainsaw to cut em up ain't gonna happen.

Lines are ran in the shop, new double wall insulated vent ready to be put up, heat exchanger is all plumbed. Just need a warmer day to fire up the boom lift and install the new stack on the shop. Also hoping for a warmer day to move the old stove out and place the new boiler. High of 10 tomorrow, not a good day for the boom lift.

Do have the wood boiler circuit to the shop up and running, less than one degree heat loss in 123" foot of Logstor. Used the standard 1/2" pipe insulation on the copper pipes in the shop, just barely warm to the touch, cut a opening in the back of an old fridge and placed the 50 plate HX in that to keep the welding rods and spare rolls of wire dry. Just toasty enough in the fridge to thaw my V8 Fruit Medley out in, had to have something to mix the Grey Goose with.

Another observation, since getting the second pump up and running my stove when it burns, it runs much longer than it used to, but the idle times are also much longer, tells me I wasn't getting very good mixing of the water before and didn't actually have 270 gallons of 190 degree water.

Sucks to hear you're hurting. But I'm glad you're getting it all hooked up and running.

 If you need wood cut or anything else, just let me know.

Thanks for the offer, these new meds they have me on I probably could cut all the wood I wanted, could probably cause even more damage in the process and wouldn't know it till the meds wore off.

My uncle has my old firewood processor, he doesn't have enough tractor to run it though, my Oliver 88 diesel runs it ok, next one up runs it great but he ain't getting that one (was my Grandfathers). The chainsaw on the processor will make the 88 blow some black smoke and it's 45 hp at the PTO. Uncles tractor is a tired, wore out 8N that were lucky when new to have half the horsepower as the 88.

Time to trade some tractor time for some processor time.

Heating with waste oil today, been a long time coming.

All those silly questions on the forms for the doctors and specialists office "Are you depressed because of your injury?" NO, I"M PISSED OFF BECAUSE I AIN"T GETTING JACK SH*T DONE!!! Fix it cause this is bullish*t, I have things to do.

Anyways, up and running, warmer day around 38 or so, waste oil boiler seems to be able to keep up with both the shop and house atm. Not real happy with the draft, going to get the stainless double wall vent up outside and see if that helps, just using a chunk of 14 gauge 8" auger tube thats been there for awhile. If a new vent doesn't help may have to go with a power vent. Exhaust temps are only running about 30 degrees warmer than the water temp, so around 220 when the water is at 190. Just don't think there is enough heat to get the big stack warm enough to draw properly. Old exhaust temp would burn yah if you were silly enough to put your hand on the stack.

Is 32 here today, house is at 73, the shop is at 55 and I have it running a little under half capacity which is about 2 1/2 quarts an hour. Wood boiler hasn't fired since 7am when I started the oil boiler.
