The cheapest option is to pull out the pre-cleaner and bend the welded louvers to 15-20mm clearance. I was going to cut and re weld, but a couple of small crescent wrenches did the job.

I would weld them all the way closed if I was going to go the fabrication route... Maybe there are some crops/yields that require them open a little, but I have them shut all the time.

You're choking at spending 1700 bucks ..... or thereabouts, for something that you've probably spent over $500,000 on, to make it more productive & more efficient in cereals & small seeds ......... Really!

If there is something out there that is the same quality and cheaper that Deere started offering only after seeing customers putting in aftermarket,whats wrong giving my money to those people since I gave Deere $500 000 for each machine already. Were not exactly looking at a bumper crop on our dryland here, saving a couple hundred dollars everywhere starts to add up after a while.

You can get them for$1155 from Niels in Australia. Should only be 7-800 bucks to buy them over there you would think. Unfortunately doesn't list what the aftermarket brand is

Exactly. Why over pay for parts and aftermarket items to a dealer when you have already overpaid for the machine in the first place. That's why they charge so much, in hopes that people will just get it from them instead of shopping around and getting it from someone who charges a decent price. I don't blame you one bit.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!
