Feederhouse dust

We are in our first season and first crop with our new, to us, 750. Picking up proso millet swaths the dust is so bad at times that I canít even see the windrows. Are the feederhouse fans a bit weak on these machines or do I have a problem I need to address?

Just normal. A hair dryer blowing the dust probably would do more then the dust suction fan.

Normally, the only time I have a problem on my 740, its because its stopped up at the top of the feeder house. A somewhat cure is to put a small spacer under the cover so the fan draws outside air also.

It is a poor design. The fan is rather effective until the intake becomes plugged under the shield. A spacer under the shield bolt might help, depending on your conditions.

But the one on the new model seems to work a lot better.

Yeah wow the new one looks awesome. If someone (Seedcleaner) came up with retrofit kits you couldn’t build them fast enough.

Oh how I wish we had that dust problem. We have harvested 250 acres total so far this year with our two 760s. Right now everything is under snow.

If I answer your question based on looking out the kitchen window we are about 40 miles south of the north pole..... but based on what I used to understand as true, we are 30 miles north of Calgary.
