Hispanic barley: Harvesting day

Barley harvesting has started!! After working barley during the whole year, the harvesting day arrived, which has been a complex year because it didn't rain until last days in March. Then, if we can harvest with good results they will be an excellent achievement.

This year we have sowed hispanic barley and we think it has a smaller performance than volley barley we are used to sow. Their grain is similar, but volley barley weight is bigger. In the end, the average is 4,000kg/ha this campaign, it is a really good result because our fields don't have water systems.

As usual, Juan José de la Fuente's combine harvested our barley. The Claas Lexion 540 is a fantastic combine! With the C660 head and a working speed of 5.8km/h they can daily harvest a large amount of fields without almost problems.

The next day, we again visited our cousin Kike (he was harvesting volley barley), so we could make a new video of John Deere W650. We don't know this combine in detail, but the first impressions were that it has strength and agility...we think they are like strong characteristics of John Deere tractors.

You can see two videos from here: Claas Lexion 540 and John Deere W650


  1. ¿Que opinión tienes de ambas maquinas? ¿mejor la john deere o la claas?
    un saludo

  2. las dos máquinas son extraordinarias, pero no se pueden comprar ya que son modelos muy diferentes. Tal vez la Lexión se puede comprar con la serie T de JD, pero no con la serie W, ya que estas son más pequeñas.

    Las dos trabajan muy bien y los miquileros que las tienen las esprimen al máximo y no tienen problemas con ellas...les dan un rendimiento óptimo.

    Si tengo que elegir alguna de las dos, me quedo con las Claas porque la conozco más.

  3. Muy buen reportaje compañero.
    Un saludo
