Default Gleaner L3 threasher beater

I've got green stem soybeans that plug the threasher beater. It seems the beater can't get the material over the concave and cob shield fingers. Any thoughts?

Try taking the concave extention off (that finger/rake like thing attached to the back of the concave) also and most importantly make sure you've got the larger threasher beater drive sprocket on to help keep the material flowing back to the seperator raddle. This compensates for slower cylinder speed by increasing the speed of the threasher beater.

Like was said, make sure you have a 25 tooth driving sprocket on the left side of the cylinder to drive the 18 tooth beater sprocket. Remove the concave grate/shield extension. Lower/tighten the cylinder clearance to chew up the straw a bit more and increase cylinder speed to the point of splits. Make sure the steel curtain that hangs over the seperator raddle is pinned up or simply remove it and throw it away !!! Wait for a killing frost to get rid of the green stems.

Thanks guys! I have the sprocket combination of 25 and 18. I hope the stalks dry down a bit soon. Sure makes a groaning noise as they pass through the cylinder

When we ran the L"s and M's, we tried using rasp bars one time and wen't right back to the spike tooth cylinders, night and day difference. Back then we had 12 of them and done custom harvesting from Texas to Nebraska. The bitch of it was having to change back to spike tooth before beans and having to do so many, got really good at it though. That got me tired just thinking about it!!
