Hey Paul !

The idea here is OK ... but I think, at this time, it's a bit of a stretch.

Like "smaller field size." uhh, unless corn hybrids are developed to produce more stover (waste), then that would be counterproductive. And I certainly don't want to be moving MORE trash through my current combine.

A 2000# bale might be nice, but we don't put that much weight in a 3X4X8 foot bale ... that'll mean a much improved machine.

And the combine that will pull and power such a machine as that, while doing its own job, will be one heck of combine !

But, you know what is said about "necessity being the mother of invention."

Time will tell,
Rich (haywool)
