Harvest is one of the busiest times of year for farmers.  One thing no farmer should have to deal with during this time is an under powered combine.  Lugging up hills, slowing down the system, and in general costing the operation money can be enough to drive you nuts!  

Each year, just after harvest, we take an influx of calls inquiring about adding horsepower to combines.  Farmers tend to be detail orientated, and have a lot of questions before tuning any equipment.  Which is totally understandable, combines are not exactly cheap and they are one of the most crucial components of a successful harvest. 

 

If you think tuning a combine is crazy, take a look at the 3 most common reasons we find farmers love combine tuning.

Harvest is one of the busiest times of year for farmers. Trying to get the crop in before the weather turns, managing employees and rushing to get a myriad of tasks done can be daunting. One thing no farmer should have to deal with during this busy time is an under performing combine. Lugging up hills, slowing down the system, and in general costing the operation money.  This does not have to be the situation for you this fall!

Each year, just after harvest, we take an influx of calls inquiring about adding horsepower to combines. Farmers tend to be detail orientated, and have a lot of questions before tuning any equipment. Which is totally understandable, combines are not exactly cheap and they are one of the most crucial components of a successful harvest. 

A few questions come up in every conversation about tuning a combine. Below, I hope to provide answers to the most common questions about combine tuning.

Custom Tuning for Tractors!

Custom tuning is now available for tractors, combines and other agricultural equipment. For years, people have added electronic modules, chips, and programmers to diesel pickups in an effort to gain fuel mileage and increase horsepower. In the old days, resistors on inline modules were installed to interput the signal from the ECU to the control components, like the fuel pump and timing control. While this method does add power, there are some concerns. One of which is that when you fool the computer in a tractor you loose the ability to accurately measure how much fuel you are using, how much heat you are creating, and this method does not offer the ability to raise your speed limiter. 

With today's high tech, computer controlled, agricultural equipment there are better options. Tuning or re-Programming the ECM (Engine Control Module) is the safest way to add power and effiency to your equipment. Manufacturers use the same engine and transmission and drive line components in several models. The only difference between them being the computer programming which controls the power output and the initial cost of the tractor.

This allows for the potential of significant gains in power and efficiency through the proper tuning.Calibrated Power Solutions offers the Power Manager, which is a remote hand held tuner with custom tuning capability. You are able to get the most out of your equipment in the safest way possible. The programmer works in conjunction with the factory programming to Up-Rate your equipment in a safe and effective manner. Check out this video which explains more about it: Tractor Up-Rate.

  • Have you considered a Bigger planter or tillage tool on your Farm. Are you worried if your tractor will have enough horsepower to get the job done?

 

 

 

If your existing machine has enough tire, but bogs under heavy load- consider tuning your tractor. You can use factory style calibration software to safely up-rate machines lower in their series to power levels of those tractors higher in the series. This means that if our brand has a similar size machine with more power than yours, you can get you the power difference.

Up-rate a 6105R to a 6130R

Up-rate a 9410R to a 9510R

Up-rate a Steiger 540 to a Steiger 620

Up-rate a 8245R to an 8295R etc.
