Hey Don. What are the rest of your settings?
Whatever CA likes, lol.
Running smooth large oval pressed metal APS concave, I've run it open and closed Jim, there has to be a difference but I've never been able to really tell.
Running CA on cleaning only, separating runs the rotors too fast and keeps closing the doors, I'm on wheat now but when I go back to canola I'll use 6 manually covered sections, open hydraulic sections and 600 rpm for a start.
10 mm for canola??? Your crazy.
Show a pic of the sample. Your chopper won't be over worked. There won't be a piece of stalk longer than an inch coming off the rotors.
The votes of confidence start rolling in!
Funny you should say that, the odd spot this year has green weeds in the crop, volunteer RR canola in wheat a good example, I'm running stationary hammers completely out and in slow speed to prevent bridging over chopper hammers.
Running with 2 CR9090's and an CX8080, as clean or cleaner than all of them. Especially in tough wheat.
where is the advantage of running the combine aggressively ? we try to keep the straw as long as possible, for two reasons its easier to sort grain in the cleaning areas and the less damage to the grain your selling its more money in your pocket,
I hate unplugging the impeller and enjoy changing impeller belts even less.
I'm too lazy and it's too unproductive.
When you have the right amount of covers on the rotors shoe depth will be very minimal and loss near zero off of it regardless of how cylinder is run.
mb farmer drilled that into me and I thank him for it.
Boles Crazy? Likely so
At about 700 lbs /minute feedrate, the 800 lb enclosed cylinder becomes weight neutral. (Force up on cylinder equals force down on concave). The criticism of a heavier cylinder being hard on bearings is complete nonsense. Go sit under an apple tree like Newton did.
Morning to you too, ha ha!
I actually like being called crazy, hey, at least somebody's thinking of ya.
Your gonna love my calculations SB, after your balancing story there.
MOST of the wheat crops in the area this year are very, very low MOG/G ratio, using 0.5 MOG/G I can pretty consistently run 24 kg/sec through but say your rolling along on this thin wheat, pull into one those draws where there is way, way more straw and grain, you know the kind where you get
MAIN DRIVE BELT SLIP and
SPEED, CRITICAL OF UNITS
messages on CEBIS, anyway for a three to five second period well over 50kg per second would be getting put through and 5 seconds later you rolling along normal again no plugs or dramas as the ozzies call it.
I thank, in order, MacDon, Sunnybrook and Claas when all that happens!
