Today I had some quaitly seat time in my 95 Corn Special shelling with the 8 row AC corn head. I gave her a new used set of shoes (23.1x26) because the 18.4 rice tires were pretty rough and I thought the 23.1s would have a better foot print on soft ground. All in all it was a good day till dad got back form the 3rd trip to the mill, There full till Tuesday so everything went to wagons and to the barn. 7 wagon loads and then we had to stop for the day till I can get a simi in to load it out. Had 4 acres that was sod last year made close to 180 bu an acre the rest will adverage about 130 bu an acre and with this year that aint bad! I was running 1st gear as slow as I could go in the real good corn and the rest was 1st gear full belt. The head speed I figuared was about right but could have been alittle faster. There is nothing better that having a full tank of gas 7 empty wagons and a bright sunny day and a good corn field to to put you in your happy place! Bandit

Well we got the first truck loaded out this morning and got the second loaded out late this afternoon and all went well for the day. Finished the last 9 acre field today and the 7 wagons are full agin and in the barn and will be loaded out tomorrow unless it rains (50/50chance). Feals good to be done with the crops for the year. Now I can relax and take it easy like the doc wants me to do, Best meds I ever took were sitting in that cab and fealing the old girl wanting more and just easing along and enjoying the ride! Bandit

Glad you are feeling better Bandit. Great pictures! Glad everything worked out well. The corn looks good and it looks like the 95 did alright with that head. Thanks again for the pics and take care of yourself!

Hey Bandit,I have been waiting and watching for this post and I am SOOOOO glad the head and the narrow row corn worked out for you!Did the Doc clear you to run the combine or was it one of those "Im gonna do it no matter what" kind of moment? How did the narrow compare yield wise to your wide rows from years past? You mentioned spacing yours out next year and thought i would pass on some info i learned this year.We have planted 24" corn since 2005 and this year i done three population test plots.One was on 8.5,one was on 12,and one was on 16".My thinking was that the spaced out corn would make a bigger ear or possibly two or more ears but that wasnt the case.The 12 and 16" both started forming the 2nd ear but never really made a good ear with the limited water supply i had for irrigation.Next year i am giong to plant on 6.5" with the hopes of making one good ear per stalk and if a 2nd ear forms it will be icing on the cake.Glad to hear things turned out good for you and I know that riding the combine with the head that you worked so hard on and combining good corn is better feel good medicine than any doctor could ever give you.

Haley the doc cleared me but told me to take it easy, ha-ha right. I guess truth be know most guys adverage 150 to 180bu an acre on a good year so a 132bu an acre aint to bad for this year. The only thing I can say about this year is my corn did alittle better than alot of guys around me. I am not complaing about my yields at all in fact I am happy with them, Trying something new like this with all the record heat and little rain and doing as good as it did I cant complain. Next year I guess I will try it agin on some diffrent ground at the same population and see what happens. Thats the great thing about farming, There is allways next year. Bandit

Nice pics, I am glad to hear about others still using 95 and 55 combines as we have two 95's and a 55.The only problem in your post is the last sentence,a full tank of gas.How do you get a 95 to stay that way?LOL My 303 gas is wore out and we hope to have a 329 diesel installed till next fall and maybe a quick tach feeder house as well. Thanks for posing the pics.

Congrats on your job well done. What population and plant spacing are you using on that 20" corn?

According to my planter book population is at 35800 or 8.75 inchs apart in 20 inch rows. Next year I think I am going to cut it down and spread it out and try it that way. This is all a guessing game for me, No one for 50 miles is trying this but me around here. Bandit

Good to hear, and thanks for sharing the pictures. The few acres of my own corn that I've shelled havne't been all that good, even considering the year... light test and not the yield I'd hoped for. I'm in the same boat as you right now... waiting to unload wagons. But it was grey and drizzly here today, so my wife and I went to the new Bond movie.

Bandit u surprised me. I would of never thought the 95 would do 8 rows. 6 rows is pushin a 95. I guess that goes to show u never understimate a John Deere combine.

Your pics make me want to come and run the 95 for awhile. I replaced the 18.4's with 23.1's on the 105 and it changed the way the machine felt considerably. When the 18.4's were on it the machine felt like it was wallowing and wandering. 23.1's stabilized it a lot. Then I added the long axle extensions which did a lot of good too. She was carrying around a 635W cornhead that weighed something like 4800 pounds. Jim
