Time-Lapse Harvest Videos

Nov 09, 2011

For some it seems harvest goes by in a flash. For this Wisconsin farmer, even if harvest did drag on you couldn’t tell it from these series of time-lapse videos.

They used a GoPro 960 camera (which we at Farm Journal have used mounting on guns for Outdoors on the Farm or nitrogen toolbars for Corn College TV.) These compact heavy-duty cameras can essentially be mounted anywhere to capture interesting perspectives.

The machinery featured includes a Claas 750 combine with 12-row head, a Case IH 275 and Kinze Harvest Commander grain cart.

Harvest with an eagle-eye view:

Russian Combines Coming to North America

Nov 01, 2011
For two years, Rostselmash, the Russian parent company of Versatile tractor and Farm King shortline, has been testing its Torum combines in North America. Starting in Western Canada and extending field work through the Mississippi Delta and Corn Belt, the company has worked to verify its plan of bringing the machines into these markets.
See the machine in the field:

The marketing plan will follow its testing footprint. Torum combines will be made available in coming months in Western Canada, and the plan for introduction in the U.S. will follow.

The Torum is a rotary combine, and the unit tested boasts 485 hp. The crops used in their North American testing have included rice, corn, soybeans, flax and canola.
