Cool man. Great video. I did notice the Wilson grain trailer which I find interesting as I have been in the trailer repair business since 1976. I have been with Wilson Trailer Sales of MN since 1982. Thanks for sharing. I will be sharing with my sales staff.

Amazing aerial footage.

I wish I had the resources to get a camera equipped drone. It would make for some interesting footage around the rigs and campsite.

They were "Getting-R-Done"!

If you don't go big, you don't go at all now-a-days!

Can someone explain to me the advantage of the grain carts?

Back in the old days, we used to unload the combine directly into the truck either by parking the truck and stopping, or by carefully driving beside the combine.

I've heard and understand about soil compaction issues from trucks in the field. One theory is that tractors and carts have lower ground pressure which ultimately gives lower compaction. To get this advantage, the trucks should stay off the fields. In this video, they use a cart, but the trucks are still driving over the fields seemingly at random. I don't get it.

With carts the combine never stops while unloading. Allowing it to cover more acreage. Great video.

When unloading on the fly with a truck, the combine doesn't stop either. At least it didn't when we did it at home 35 years ago.

Most likely it is one of those videos where you have to be there to fully understand. The logistics of trucking could be part of it.
