If it rains on this it takes forever to dry! But if you’re selling straw it probably is a selling feature. Did it for years, cows liked it because it had grain in it (conventional JD) Like Don says, if it falls thru you have a problem!

Only trouble is in our area and crops when its good for harvesting its bad for baling and vice versa. So the Glenvar isnt such a good option.

The chaff can and does fall through in the middle, as there is less straw there to hold it up. I would like to maybe deflect straw around and back underneath the tube a bit more. I would also like to deflect the chaff out of the sides of the tube some instead of blowing straight back. There is also some blowby up top on the chaff spreaders. Some of the chaff and air from the fans blow up and out on each outer side of the chaff spreader. Those pictures show a little longer and thicker straw than normal for here. I am cutting about 12 inches above the ground on good flat going.

Even if you could make a 45 that would put the lions share of the chaff on one side, I promise the cows would find it and wouldn’t complain about symmetrical distribution. Very cool setup.

This is a picture of it in action. The mud flap was revision 3.0 and worked well for diverting the chaff to the left and right side of the windrow, so it would be less likely to fall through and to the ground.
