I just demoed the Honeybee Airflex in Soybeans. It was 36' model comparing it to my 30' FD75. . It was easier to see the draper belt, I ran it in good standing beans, some that were down pretty bad, bottom ground and Terraces. In terraces it did as good of job as the FD75. The air bags seemed to react fairly quickly, however I had it on a JD 9670 so I was going a little slower than the 30' fd75 although surprisingly not much slower. Couple of things to note. I seemed to have to adjust the reel up and down more depending on the height of the beans and in tangled down beans it seemed to want to wrap or bunch up on the ends where the fd75 did not. In standing crop not an issue. I would sure demo one if your interested. The head trailer would take a little getting use to they use. I am seriously thinking about trading for one and if I do I would try and modify the trailer I have. Those are my first observations. If you have a specific question I would try and answer it.
