Deere WTS Problem in Grass

Having problems with the back beater wrapping when combining grass seed with the WTS combines. No anti-wrap kit available from Deere that I am aware of for the back beater- there is one for the front. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions? Could that back beater be removed for grass seed or do you think that it performs a viable function?

Thanks in advance.

We have had problems under very wet conditions harvesting swathered grass seed. The rotating drum at the end of the walkers was wrapping up and finaly everything was blocked.

So what did you do to fix the problem? Have you considered removing the back beater? Do you think the timing of the fingers makes any difference?

A little bit of sun and wind will do a perfect job. I have heard stories of farmers who made a sharp point at the fingertips, but take care your combine won't go up in flames !! Sharpening the fingertips should have be a small improvement. Slow down your speed might work.

Harvested a field once together witch a NH CR and that machine couldnt get it through. Claas was plugged as well. NH CX was the best under those wet conditions. JD WTS lost capacity but was able to harvest.

Best thing to do is to remove the fingers from the drum!!

We started clipping the meadow brome with the straight cut headder and then you can cut the straw with the haybine there are shattering losses but the sticky leaves won't plug the beater. We had this problem mainly with meadow brome.
