Dfriwcwtw Faming, Saturday, Novambar 13,1993 Self-Contained Hydraulics RACINE, Wis. J I Case has introduced a new Category 111 for age harvester, the Case Interna tional 8750. - “People in the industry know that forage harvesters haven’t changed much in the last decade,” said Dave Hess, Case product manager-hay and forage. “But the 8750 features several innovations that increase productivity and con venience. The most important is the self-contained hydraulic system.” The hydraulic system supplies power to drive the feedrolls and attachments. The tongue of the machine serves as the hydraulic reservoir for the self-contained system, and the system pump is belt-driven from the tractor PTO. “Because of this setup, theoreti cal cut length can be infinitely adjusted between 3/16 and 5/8 of an inch,” said Hess. “All a farmer needs to do is move an indicator to the desired position. This varies the pump output flow and changes the speed of the feedroll drive motor faster for long cuts, slower for shorter cuts. There are no sprockets to change. No machine with mechanical drive is as easy to adjust.” Conference To Explore Use Of Conservation Reserve Acres ANKENY, lowa What use farmers will make of the 36.5 mil lion acres of cropland enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Prog ram (CRP) once their contracts expire and what options federal policymakers may exercise to keep at least some CRP acres out of crop production over the longer term will be discussed at a nation al conference on February 10-11, 1994, in Arlington, Va. The conference, “When Con servation Reserve Program Con tracts Expire... The Policy Options,” is being sponsored by the Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS) in cooperation with several government agencies and many of the nation’s leading conservation and agricultural organizations. Participants will include federal and state policy makers, government program managers, and representatives of environmental and agricultural organizations. The conference program will examine how well the CRP has achieved its multiple purposes; how farmers say they plan to use their CRP acres once their con tracts expire; and given federal budget limitations, what options might be available to policymak ers for perpetuating the environ mental and other benefits achieved with the CRP over the past eight years. The CRP was created in 1985. Under the program, farmers are paid an annual rental fee for retir ing highly erodible and other environmentally fragile land from crop production for a period of 10 Harvester Has According to Hess, the ability to accurately control cut-length uniformity results in better silo loading, packing and unloading. “It also helps provide consistent, optimum feed quality to promote milk production and improve livestock health.” Another advantage of the self contained hydraulic system is that it provides built-in overload pro tection, with no need to adjust slip clutches or stop and change shear bolts. The feedrolls stop when the hydraulic system exceeds relief pressure. Hess npted that the cut terhead, auger, and blower are mechanically driven for maxi mum utilization of available pow er from today’s high-horsepower tractors. The 8750 has three-row capaci ty and is available with a 150 or 200 PTO horsepower driveline. For many operations, the surface area of the tongue on the 8750 provides adequate heat dissipation so supplemental hydraulic cooling is not required. But in high capacity, long-duration opera tions, an oil cooler, which is stan dard equipment on machines with the 200-horsepower driveline, keeps operating temperatures years. In return, they must estab lish and maintain a permanent soil-conserving cover of grass or trees on the retired acres for the life of the contract No decisions have been made yet on whether farmers now parti cipating in the CRP will be offered contract extensions or other incen tives to keep their land out of crop production beyond the 10 years covered by the existing contracts. Contracts on about 24 million CRP acres are due to expire between 1995 and 1997. Many environmental groups are concerned about the loss of natur al resource benefits in the form of soil erosion control, wildlife habi tat enhancement, and water qual ity protection if the CRP acres revert to crop production follow ing contract expiration. Farm groups, on the other hand, worry about what impact bringing mil lions of CRP acres back into crop production may have on agricul tural commodity supplies and prices. The conference which will be held at the Arlington Renaissance Hotel, will provide a forum to dis cuss what policies are needed to achieve, on a longer term basis, many of the CRP’s original envir onmental protection and commod ity supply control objectives. A preliminary conference prog ram will be circulated in November, For more information about the conference, write or call SWCS, 7515 Northeast Ankeny Road, Ankeny, lowa 50021-9764, (515) 289-2331 or (800) The Soil. down. A field-installed cooler option is available for units with the 150-horsepower driveline. The cutterhead is 18 inches in diameter and 22 inches wide, with 10 spiral knives that make 10,000 cuts per minute. The shear bar has a 1.25 x 2-inch cross-section larger than competitive models, according to Hess. “This means less deflection under heavy loads, a cleans' cut, longer knife wear and reduced power requirements. The shear bar is reversible and easy to adjust, and that means the farmer will get longer use out of it,” he said. The optional metal detector available for the 8750 detects ferr ous metals and stops the feedrolls before foreign objects can enter the cutteihead. This reduces the possibility of downtime and costly repairs, and helps protect livestock. If the feedrolls stop, either because of metal detection or overload, the operator simply flips a toggle switch to hydraulically reverse the direction of the feed rolls and attachment head and back the crop out ‘The hydraulic feedroll drive design eliminates the need for electric clutches or gear boxes which are mechanical ly shifted,” said Hess. “We designed this forage harvester with an ear to our cus tomers,” he said. “More than any thing, they want productivity, dependability and ease of use. The 8750 reflects that input” Among other features, it has a central lubrication bank for 16 FARM EQUIPMENT 10,000 Gallon Steel Tank, Good Condition. $3OO (717)626-1397.
