    Maybe if you can get the wind to blow in the opposite direction, it will right itself. (Sorry, but good luck with it).

    I have no perspective on what that is; looks like maybe corn or grain sorghum? The corn has been gone here for months, so you will have to relieve me of my ignorance. I spent one Summer with a custom cutter, running a combine cutting wheat. It was an open cab 14 foot Gleaner; that should tell you how long ago it was. The boss took on a job cutting some Rye that looked to be 6 or 7 foot tall (when it was standing) and it was all on the ground. They put something called pick-ups on the header, and we harvested that stuff. The most miserable experience I have ever had. We had to run the whole shebang through the combine; it was dry, moldy and the chaff ate us alive. It was slow, but we did get-er-done. I suspect there is a way to harvest your crop also.
    Have wings, will travel.

    It's white corn. The corn head has "snouts" that are designed to pick corn up. This just happens to be an extreme example.

    No wonder you're having a tough time, the tractor's the wrong color, geesh.

    Lol, yeah. My parents were green back in the day. I was a little guy and they had a 4520. Then they bought a 4640. When it came time to replace it things changed... They went to buy a new tractor maybe 10 years ago and JD wouldn't budge on the price. Case made them a deal on an MX230 and they haven't really looked back. Now with all the different computers it would be nearly impossible to switch without swapped everything. Think Mac vs PC. There are some cross overs, but even Mac vs PC is somewhat compatible.

    I've seen instances where they only combine in one direction because the loss going with the wind blow was so substantial. It definitely sucks.

    Head looks like an older Case with the good knife rolls. We run one of those a long time on our JD 8820's, then 9600's and finally 9650,before getting a Deere Whirly Bird

    We had a storm come through here over Labor Day weekend last year. The corn took a beating and the majority ended up like yours. Some of the farmers had rotating fingers attached to the corn head that would help pick up some of the laid over corn. It was slow, as you say, but it was the best solution at the time.
