Schemper Harvesting operates with NEW John Deere S-Series combines and R-Series tractors, Brent Avalanche grain carts and a Kinze grain cart, as well as Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks and Wilson trailers. We have the equipment and management to quickly and safely relocate to our harvest locations on time and provide the best harvesting experience to our customers.
Several semis and a few tandem trucks (and pups) are used to transport grain from the field to the unloading destination. All of our trucks are inspected and maintained on a daily basis to ensure 100% safety and reliability. Our grain trailers are also equipped with automatic tarps.
We operate with front wheel assist tractors and grain carts equipped with electronic scales. Having a grain cart lets us operate in more remote areas and allows us to handle harvesting quicker with minimum combine downtime.
The S-Series combines are equipped for maximum capacity, quality, and performance. All of our combines include four wheel drive, duals, big tires, grain tank hopper extensions, fine chop knife blades, PowerCast tailboards (spinners) which spread residue up to 50 feet, FieldVision lighting, among other features. We also use GreenStar displays for yield and moisture, GPS mapping documentation and guidance (AutoTrac). This system also allows for the marking of field boundaries.
FD75 MacDon 40' Flexdrapers are used for wheat, soybeans, canola and milo harvest. For wheat in Western Kansas and Nebraska, Shelbourne Reynolds headers are used in no-till farming systems. For windrowed grain in North Dakota, 914P Belt Pickup Platforms are used. Corn headers used include 8 row 36 inch and 12 row 30 inch. A few of the 12 row 30 inch corn headers include the StalkMaster Corn Head Chopping System which allows for chopping corn stalks while harvesting. We have the ability and potential to harvest all varieties of crops including, but not limited to, wheat, barley, durum, canola, oats, soybeans, corn and milo.
