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.
