Peterson sieve Question?

I just bought another 2388 to add to our fleet and it came with a non adjustable Peterson air-foil sieve. We have always run the standard small grain and corn sieves, I was just looking for some advice to see if I wanted to keep it or sale it for some standard ones. We harvest wheat, milo, corn, and sometimes sunflowers. The combine has a standard rotor as well.

Thank you.

I have a solid airfoil screen in a 1688, I always liked it but don't remember what brand it was. We had a 1660 with a different brand airfoil, did not like it the holes were too big. I wish I new what the brands were. We bought the first one because it was lighter, were having bushing and broken sieve trouble with the 1688. It was trouble free after that. We just use the 1688 as a spare but it still has that sieve in it, need to sell it.

I have the adjustable Peterson sieve in one of our 7088's. Have only used it in Corn and Soybeans so far and will be in Wheat in July ( If it decides to rain or snow one of these days lol), I've never been around the non-adjustable ones but I can say the adjustable sieve is the best thing we have ever put in any machine we have had.

I have a non adjustable air foil that I run every now and then. In fact it is still in the machine as the standard cloz slat chaffer broke this past season. It is made by Harvest Services, and is light weight and fairly rigid.

It does work pretty well in heavy grains or seeds. I dont know that I would wait until the last minute to buy a standard chaffer, as you may not like it. It does take some experimenting because it is a different concept than the adjustables. But used they are not worth a lot as freight would cost too much. If you can get an off season discount or something on the chaffer style you are used to, I would buy it and have it on standby.

Basically you use the fan speed and shoe setting to control the chaffer.

I forgot to add, if you are a member of, the member there Jon Hagen is pretty much an expert with this air foil chaffer as I believe he runs it exclusively. He also runs flax and some sort of peas.
