Coll r-control systems available for combines EDMONTON (CI'i Life 01 (lie prairie grail) fields is Its: arduous these days because of modern harvesting machines which provide comfortable, iso- lated cabs for the fanner. But in gaining more comfort the fanner has lost the advan- tage of being able to cvaluate- with liis machine's performance, says Frank Vas, an agricultural engineer with Uie University of Alberta. In early cotnbines, the farmer sat on a hard steel seat and was in contact with every shock, lurch, vibralion and soiuid made by Uie machine. Today, however, "lie sils in an air-conditioned cab on a foam rubber says Mr. Vas. "He has finger-lip steering control, is isolated from ma- chine noises, and lie keeps driv- ing until the machine refuses to operate." Mr. Vas says the farmer now needs a higher order of commu- nication with his combine, and (his is possible wilh monitor- control systems which are avail- able today. SYSTEMS MONITORED In April, 1969. a major com- bine manufacturer introduced a new line with monitor-control systems. The cab of the new machines had up lo 33 gauges and controls to give the opera- tor continuous information on the combine's performance dur- ing harvest. Mr. Vas says these devices monitor ground speed, cylinder speed, air cleaner operation a.< well as providing the usua reading for fuel level and en- gine Icmporature. A horn sig- nals low oil pressure, over loaded rack and elevator ever- loud while lights warn of high temperature or a parking brake that has not been released. By watching a meter, the farmer can keep grain loss to a minimum by adjusting forward speed to c o m p e n s a t e for changes in crop condition, dens- ity and terrain. Ic'ului'c monitor-control sys- tems, says Mr. Vas, will warn Uie operator of component fail- ures and even impending fail- ures. He foresees the use of computers which will automate the systems. HIGH COST INVOLVED "But the high cost involved a big factor and I'm not sure Uie farmer is1 willing to pay for Jiese advances." However, as rural populations decline and farm units become larger, the developments arc certain lo evolve, ho says. "They would allow combine operators to slay on the ma- chine as long as necessary to harvest the crop by providing maximum efficiency of opera- tion both for the machine and the crop. "As long as the operator has 5reen lights on, his instrument panel and buzzers are silent, he will know all is well with the combine." fT vflpsons-Sem Last Minute Gifts Florentine style octagonal box o.-Qpen this delightful looking jewel box and hear enchanting music.
