“Our neighbors can't believe that we can run 40 foot (12.2 m) headers in our hills.”

We used to run four swathers – two 25 foot (7.6 m) and two 30 foot (9.1 m) – and now we are doing the same amount of acres with these two 40 foot (12.2 m) headers and doing it faster. We’ve never had anything like them… lots of power. We were really impressed with how quiet and comfortable they were to run. Our neighbours can’t believe that we can run 40 feet (12.2 m) in our hills, and do the job that we are. In a heavy 50 bushel wheat crop, and challenging downed canola crop, we ran them the whole season, cutting 8,000 acres (3,237 hectares) without stopping for anything. For new tractor units and headers to run all of them acres and with nothing going wrong, well that’s pretty good. Some guys around here had all kinds of problems with their swathers last fall; they couldn’t get it cut or get the canvasses to drive properly. The competetive ones were giving lots of problems. There was even one guy who had to get it custom cut because he couldn’t get it done. Well, now he’s got two MacDon D60’s himself.”
