The X9 Harvests Corn!

The new John Deere X9 combine finally hits the field with Onyx running the grain cart. We had some more work to do around the grain bins, and we started up the dryer for the first time this year. Corn harvest 2020 IS HERE!
The goal of the Grain Bin Safety campaign is to reduce the occurrence of grain bin accidents by raising awareness of the hazards and by raising funds to equip first responders with the tools and training needed to respond quickly when necessary in the event of a grain bin accident. The funds raised will be used to purchase Grain Bin Rescue kits and training for our first responders.
Donate Today:
Nominate Your Local First Responders: Best point of contact at your department? What equipment does your department/responders need? Is there a specific brand of equipment your community uses as a combined effort with other local departments? Any other information you think we might find useful? Please send request to
Zach and Becky Johnson will assemble a panel of volunteers to review request a distribute donations accordingly.
Funds raised will be distributed to rural first responders to purchase grain bin rescue systems and training.

    IMHO that’s a machine that is pretty much meant for custom harvesters only. That’s the level it starts to make sense financially, because they are factoring in transporting equipment and paying operators. They can send two X-9’s instead of three 790’s. I hope they hold value with high hrs, I’m leasing a couple to a custom harvester as an investment. That’s the prob, it’s tough to shake a million bucks out of a lender, no matter who you are!

      @Millennial Farmer Ya and probably never well just because of your climate. There are a few folks down here planting fall corn these days that are having to dry their corn. It is just now hitting roasting ear stage. I think back in the day we picked some corn in the 18% range and used a grain dryer. It was nothing like yours, it was an old style. The main reason it was dried back then was fear of getting rain from hurricanes or getting blown down, but that doesn't seem to happen anymore!! lol Varieties with shorter growing seasons have seemed to solve that issue for the most part. Good luck with the rest of the harvest I really miss those days.

Beside the winch cable down to the person is a control switch during a cave in the person uses switch to pull them up out of harm ? this might be something your money could develop ..
