    the new claas harvesters round here all has Kemper headers its the only header to have
    and that said by both customer and contractors
    there feed well in the shorter crop
    and leaves the field verŷ cleanly chopped and tidy

    That will be the Kemper owned by?? Hmmm not a very subtle advert Mr JD employee.

    Not a patch on feeding the rollers in comparison to RU/RI or Krone headers on the ones i have driven. Not used an Orbis. As for leaving a good result and feed in short crops Kemper = jack of all trades, master of none.

    dont get me wrong they are financially good businesses, guaranteed government payment per unit for xxx years...........but really.......GREEN ENERGY I DONT THINK SO

    best thing the government can chuck our hard earned taxes at is nuclear power
    EROI figures are all about boundaries and where they are set. All Energy inputs properly taken into account and the Energy Return On Investment is very likely to be lower than 1:1.

    Basically nail on the head Vinnie.

    Our politically motivated 'Green' friends have strangled what was undoubtedly the greenest power source available to date. Nuclear power.

    I, for one, am sick of propping up government sponsored 'feed in tariffs' for anything but green 'renewable' bollocks.

    Big vern as you say for them to come, cut and remove the crop and have the field read for re-planting (wheat rape?) and by now prob seeded the price is good, i would be happy with that very!
