All-Crop Users of the Future

Read this article today; about young people getting into smaller scale farming. Couldn’t help but think an All-Crop would be great for their rotation. I actually have many customers doing this kind of farming. I wish I could figure out a way to get more machines into their hands at a price that works for both ends of the transaction. It’s a tough nut to crack. I wonder if a “new” All-Crop 40 would be best. Portability is the best feature on that machine. Easily trailered, it could be shared by more than one farmer. Its limitation would be its capacity. But from the article: “Today‚Äôs young farmers also tend to operate small farms of less than 50 acres”….If a farm had 20% of that land in grain as part of a rotation, that’s 10 acres – Doable for a 40.

    Maybe something we need to work on Tom.

    Would be a “fun” project Chris….Anybody have, say, $100K burning in their pockets? That might cover that clamshell stamping tooling!

    Need I remind you that I am “Married with Children”?

    In all seriousness, I think the shortest way to get there is to shorten the 60/66 to 48″ cut… and make the tank taller/bigger to make up the cutting width shortfall. Would then be completely trailerable, no overwidth issues.

    Maybe a prototype is in order…..
