I built a screened catcher for about $30 of material for the pickup header, it helped. With the Airflex straight header it was mostly leaves floating around and landing on the feeder house as well as the ever-present dust cloud. Rotaries don't have this issue and I'm not sure how to resolve this on a cylinder machine but that little dust fan in the feeder is basically good for nothing from what I can tell.

There is a solution for this.

I havent had issue with the 12 volt plug being loose. I think if you have something plugged in and tilt the armrest up, and then get off of the air seat, the arm rest can come up and possibly unplug or break whatever is plugged in.

This was my first year for an air bar. It created more trash on the feeder house than normal. I once fully raised the header at the headland to clear something in the field. As doing so I heard a loud snap. The trash cracked the lower cab shield.I was able to reposition the shield to make the crack nearly invisible. While talking to All State Ag Parts, I brought this up and they said they seldom get one in that isn't cracked, or it is sold quickly if it is good. So, FYI, don't fully raise feeder with a lot of material on it.

I would think the MAV chopper would/could be made to suck more air from the feederhouse, and then use that air to project the straw better.

That should be included with every purchase. Looks like it could double as an interior light.

It should be, and it does.

Seedcleaner you likely are well aware that to do a header calibration you must lift the feeder all the way and hold for a few seconds...twice! I'll bet that does in a pile of those cab shields. Oh, and that reminds me, find a way to eliminate the rubbing of that front plastic panel on the window...

Yes, the header cal sure needs two raised occurrences. This year, due to a very good initial cal, I never touched it again after going to the field. Blocking the bottom of the feeder off the ground when the height potentiometers were bottomed out did the trick. Very good response and very good lowering characteristics.
My shield doesn't rub or make noise.
