  • Patent number: 8019517
    Abstract: An agricultural harvesting machine includes different working units, an input and display unit, a memory and evaluation unit, and a control device for influencing adjustable operating parameters of the working units, at least one set criterium being stored in the memory and evaluation unit, and, based on at least one crop material parameter and/or operating parameter that was determined in the harvesting process, and based on the at least one set criterium, a prognosis regarding the attainability of an actual harvesting goal is formulated, the prognosis being taken into account in the adjustment of the operating parameters.

  • Patent number: 7503160
    Abstract: In method and a device for determining the compression properties of crop material in an agricultural working machine, a compressing device is capable of being filled with a material sample during the working process, the compression of the material sample is determined based on at least one defined precompression of the material sample carried out by the compressing device, and at least one compressing element assigned to the compressing device applies a load on the material sample and moves relative to it, to provide an improved compression effect in crop material.

  • Publication number: 20080047248
    Abstract: An agricultural carrier vehicle has a feeder housing and a front harvesting attachment capable of being swiveled from a working position into a hauling position, for picking up and conveying crop material. The feeder housing and the front harvesting attachment are interconnected via at least one adapting device, which is designed such that, when the front harvesting attachment is swiveled from a working position into a hauling position, the connection between the front harvesting attachment and the feeder housing is maintained, and, during the hauling operation, the carrier vehicle draws the front harvesting attachment using the adapting device in a direction of travel for hauling.
