Combining and Grain Transport
We have three 25ft cut combines all fitted with GPS auto steering which means the combine is always taking a full headers width and breaks made in a field alway leave a full headers width. Yield maps can be created to allow you to analyses areas of the filed that may not be performing to their full potential. Harvest Smart Feed rate controls are fitted so the combine automatically adjusts the forward speed according to the loss monitors and variations in crop yield so you can be assured the combine is alway running to its optimum and not loosing valuable grains out the back of the combine
Several grain trailers are available to transport grain from field to store which we can supply to customers to tow with their own tractor or fully operated by our fleet.
We also have a 16ton chaser bin towed by a tractor on flotation tyres that can lead off from the combines to a wagon parked nearby, then the wagon can transport the grain to the store. We find this method to be most cost effective per ton of grain transported as the wagon can nearly transport 3 times as much grain in one trip as a tractor and trailer, and when greater distances need to be covered wagons are faster on the road.
We have spare combine capacity if anyone is interested in this service as we believe in getting the crop harvested in the right conditions, and spare capacity helps in years when weather conditions are challenging!!
Fixed prices per acre can be agreed for combining and transporting grain to store, this enables the customer to have a fixed price to work to an no surprise big bills!
We are one of few contractors to offer swathing as a service, we have a Shelbourne Reynolds Mentor with 16ft cut. This is mainly used to swath oil seed rape and borrage but we have been know to swath wheat ready for a forager to pick it up for whole crop.
AWSM Farming tends to swath some of our Oil Seed Rape as it brings the crop ready for the combine sooner spreading the workload of the combines out, and also it spreads the risk of not all our OSR crop being exposed to the risk of high winds or rain storms nocking the seeds out when they are at the brittle stage following desiccation.
