The overloading the shoe problem is sunflowers can be very frustrating. SWs suggestions are good ones however if you have a walker combine you will have little trouble. More even shoe load and less hard on the MOG.
We have often combined sunnies dry without fire trouble. Totally dependant on humidity levels when combining. Low humidity fires are garanteed but at higher levels no issues.
One of the other major differences with an 853A is the chain tighteners. Much improved. The knife head is also spring loaded on the A. Although I'm not sure that matters much in sunflowers.

Problem is solved....I now have a 853A sitting in the yard......we have a 9770 and a 760 Claas so will figure out which one to put it on. Was planning to put on 9770 but the long term plan here is to have 2 760's so might be better just to use that from the start.
