I have a 974 macdon and it scoops rocks terribly. Was looking to get either the rock guard or seed saver kit. Is one better than the other? I know if I didn't do beans I would just do the rock guard but I'm afraid the right angle rock guard will lose a few more beans. Thanks.
You’re talking about two unrelated things here so lm puzzled by your question.
I don’t care for the MacDon rock guard, I agree it would likely cause a bit of seed loss and in a light crop feds poorly over it.
The pipe idea sounds interesting.
Seed saver is to stop loss under side drapers over feed draper, that I would install.
The roller and picking idea also gets my vote.
