We grow about 100 acre wheat and barley and probably cut an additional 60.

Currently running a mf 29 but its forever back in the yard with breakdowns.

Budget perhaps around 20k.

Open for ideas and/or offers

Must admit at them acres id just get a contractor but its not for everyone
ive used a contractor for last 11year fixed cost paid end of sept
no more huge unexpected bills it works for me.
Finding a combine in that price bracket is possible but not without its hassles at the same time.

there is nothing worse than waiting for a contractor, I have only experienced yellow ones, the biggest expense apart from stone damage has been belts but they should not be a reliability issue if they are checked for cracks I would recommend a TX or a TC as they are uncomplicated, I think the best place to buy a combine is at a farm sale as very often they are traded in for a reason

thats the problem with buying another.its bound to need some parts that the previous owner didn’t want to spend on so traded it in. Best keep a bit back to pay for a good service. Or maybe have you’re own given a good check over and run i a bit longer

Claas dominator, nh tc/tx or 80 or as said above budget will get in theory more jd 11 series or case axial. Just talk to a few of the s/h boys as some models for example it not possible to get some bits like the engine in some tx 32’s or the electrics in tf78’s possible worth a call to manners

Written by Lisa Applin

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
