Good plan. Pay for it, bale it, collect it today, or it gets chopped. Sorts out the ditherers, bottom feeders, can't pay/ won't payers, time wasters. (y)
More should do the same.
 
Power stations don’t like it, burns too hot.

its a pig on moving biomass parts. It burns lovely in our boilers though, I’d have been Interested if you were closer but haulage kills it.

Is anyone using a CR9090 for linseed. Any advice ?
It’s not the combine it’s the header. If you can get it past the header table then in any machine it’s not an issue as long as you check it regularly in case it’s wrapping around a shaft or something.

Getting it in the header wasn't the problem.
In the CR we struggled to get through the machine, separate the seed from the straw and straw out of the back. So we reverted to an old machine with a drum and walkers.
The old machine is now older so we are going to have another go with the CR, the manual says it should do linseed so was looking for any tips. We have a new knife.
