Finally got the harvest underway, there was some serious delays due to very wet weather and hence even weather fields, but we finally moved into the first friday morning, originally a M.F. 6140 was to go topping however the going was a bit tough for her due to some soft ground conditions so we brought one of the M.F. 6180s which managed beter, on the harvester there is a 6290 and there are two of agrium models converted 6290s carting to the grader with maraston trailers, i had to carry a M.F. 3680 into the field too as she was on stand by with chains later in the day as the exit passage from the field got pretty sticky and the 6140 was put onto a yard brush to give the road a bit of a sweep to keep the cops happy all in all my the start of my first potato harvest is going ok with no major problems besides a bit of muck  ::)
