Regardless of the machine model, the question is, what is your tailings over loading with? Clean viables? Light non viables? Doubles? In other words, if you know what is in the tailings, it will tell you where to start making adjustments.

If clean viable seed, the shoe might be the place to start. If light non viables and light chaff, the fan might need to be faster. Doubles and no groted seeds, the threshing might need to be a bit more aggressive.

Sometimes though, if the crop is not fit to harvest, or is compromised, you just have to go with it and do what you can.

If you want a older machine to do grass seed or alfalfa seed clover whator ever the 750 ,760 850 and 860 Massey Ferguson combines do a great job. There are still some running in the Willamette valley in Oregon.
