This article relates that Tony Reynolds has found harvest at Thurbly Grange Farm, near Bourne, Lincolnshire, England one of mixed emotions. On the plus side his Shelbourne Reynolds stripper header has performed without a hitch. It has performed so well that it is being used on all wheat due to go into oilseed rape. The main downsides have been intermittent progress and concern for grain quality caused by wet weather.
