Happen to end up helping a friend do canola yesterday, I’d seen the field before and was pretty sure my setup method would be tested.
Wow, what an understatement, it’s like a header testing proving grounds obstacle course!
Far, far and away the rollist land I have ever harvested, in a 50 m span you can get 0 to 100 (full range) feeder faceplate plus full range wing flex on both sides, what a wild ride!
It worked fantastic!
My research paid off big time!
Well, not counting the 1/2 of a pickup box of short pieces of straw bridged over the hopper auger while testing in the already harvested wheat field, before I shut the sieves and ran the fan up to max to keep straw out, it was aiding by only idling the combine when testing, hmm., why is the quality cam showing anything? Oooooh.
My friend crawled in the hopper with a fork and spread it out allowing it to feed out, standing safely in the hopper as I ran it. I’m sure this procedure is outlined in the op manual.
Miles is still my friend.
