That’s Telematics but you have to pay for that privilege. Last time I looked it was £1000/year. There’s a combine league table so people can have a ‘Cock off’ about outputs but it’s there for diagnosing issues like most of the manufacturers are doing now.I heard a story a few years ago about a farmer wanting to buy a either a new Claas or NH Combine. He bought the Claas because it was cheaper. But the reason it was cheaper was that Claas persuaded him that he didn’t need as big a Combine as NH did.
After harvest, the farmer complained to Claas that he struggled to get his harvest finished and was the last farmer still Combining in his area.
To which Claas replied that on various dates the driver had stopped for Lunch and Tea. And that on various dates, the Combine didn’t unload on the move!
Apparently, Claas know what each Combine is doing at any time and can even switch it off if the payments for it aren’t made.
