Our sugarcane harvesting company works 6 days a week 12 hours a day with 1 x jd harvester and 2 x jd 6830 towing 10 tonne cane bins. Whilst we expected some fuel savings with the tuning which we got 20 liters per day saving great , the main advantage we seen is the increase in productivity .
Basicly we got a extra hours work done in 12 hours due to the fact the tractor can get to the siding and unload quicker and get back to the harvester to reload sooner, if fact the difference was that much we need to get the other tractor tuned quickly as one would be slower the quicker would catch it and have to wait which showed to me a instant improvement in productivity.
Now we have both tractors tuned and saving upto 40 litres per day total and a extra 2 hours productivity we are very happy with the results and are looking at tuning our harvester also.
I see it as a long term investment with a quick return.
