THE biggest header/front combination in SA was delivered to the Eyre Peninsula last week.
Ben McNamara, Tumby Bay, bought a New Holland CR10.90 header with a MidWest Durus Premium 18.3 metre front after the Eyre Peninsula Field Days.
The CR10.90 header is the largest that New Holland makes and it in the Guinness Book of Records for harvesting the most grain of any combine brand in an eight hour day, with 797.656 tonnes of wheat reapt in eight hours.
New Holland business manager Peter Brooks said Mr McNamara’s CR10.90 was the first to be sold on the EP and it was the first unit to be fitted with a 18.3m front in SA.
Mr McNamara started harvesting in the first week of November and plans to finish this week.
As he is also busy running a feedlot, he said timeliness with harvest was key.
