Working on that, had a friend phone me on this today as well.
Very captive market.

Called Kondex encouraging them on the Claas blade challenge (sounds like a razor ad!), maybe wouldn’t hurt for others to call.

Are there any makers of aftermarket blades other than Redekop for Claas? I called Redekop in February and got their voicemail and left one explaining what I wanted and for someone to call me back in case I forgot (had already gotten a quote, was just confirming that I wanted to order and have them brought to the Lethbridge ag show)....and then the next day my life kinda got turned upside down and I of course forgot to call again to confirm and nobody from their company called me... so just the other day I get down my list of things to do and call them about ordering the blades they quoted me on and they tell me they won't give me the discount any more...so **** Redekop.

Any chance these are available for a pro-chop now?

Need a new set and either order Redekop or just go stock ones again, both wore similar last year from what I saw.

We’ve been getting excellent wear out of the Redekop spray weld coated hammers in the MAV’s. Easily a season and a half on a side. Where as we couldn’t make the season on a regular set.

I’m leaning on them! Sunnybrook handling them.
Made sense to start with the high volume knives first of course, all 500 series and turbochop now available.

Good to hear Don, sounds like progress.

Seem to get a year out of either the Redekop coated blades or the Claas coated blades which are what came in my last combine, flip halfway through the season. Probably could get a bit longer but I am not starting a season with worn blades. There is a $2 per blade price difference between the Redekop and the Claas blade, or about 5%.

joesixpack I doubt we grow more straw than you do but the pulses are hard on the chopper I think and I did a LOT of green canola last year. I suspect the pro-chop is more aggressive than the MAV chopper as well, I know the stationary knives are.

Those new blades look good but the price is extremely high.

The other option is just to let hungry little bugs break it down for free.



Soybean as tough as flax? I'm obviously growing the wrong kind of flax.

Chopped about 100 m long, single width strip (trapped on the wrong side of a standing flax strip with an almost full hopper) stationary knives fully in, rotating knives in good shape, friction plate engaged, made use of all adjustments from cab.
No seeding tool could have seeded into any scale of that sort of straw. NONE!
