RedeKop Chopper on CIH 8010

Howdy, I've been looking into one of these RedeKop choppers for my 8010. Anyone on here put one on? My biggest issue with the factory setup is it doesn't chop fine enough, at night in wheat it looks like I used a walker combine with just straw spreaders. My other problem is, I run a 45ft header, those chinsy spreaders ether don't spread wide enough, or you have all the residue on the ends and hardly anything in the middle. My other concern is, I do a fare amount of baling behind the combine, how do you windrow with one of these choppers? Can you still spread the chaff? I would like to put a chaff saver/ walker on someday, but one mod at a time... I'm not really concerned about the extra hp requirements or more fuel usage. So I burn more fuel and have to slow down, but I should be able to save a tillage pass to try to fix what didn't get ground up by the combine.

Thanks for the time

One a side note, I have always wondered, why do so many of you guys North of the boarder run cylinder/walker combines?

Takes abit 1 minute to windrow straw. No tools. Just move a handle and push a big door in so it covers the chopper opening then drop the sieves tail board down. Chaff will still go on the straw row.

Unfortunately the chopper still screams away empty at 3000rpm unless you take the belt off.

I have a couple of MAVS on 8010’s.
They chop good. Not so impressed with the spread. It is even, just not wide enough.

Maybe if yours is brand new it might spread better. Might be something different about it.


Square box........
Round pizza.......
Triangle pieces....

Iam confused......

I know they have wider wind blades that can be put on the edge of the chopper. I think .5 inch wider. This was from a redekop guy at a farm show when I asked him about increasing the spread.

Seems like the wind is blowing enough most of the time so one side hardly spreads anyway.

Redekop MAV runs rings around the factory set up, right through to 40 series.
Sold a lot downunder, and can get 40' plus in good conditions with Wide Spread Kit, nice wide and even spreads.
Retract the blades on the interanl chopper, becomes and aggressive beater and let the MAV do the work.
HP demand increase is minimal , but must turn the blades when they get blunt on first side. Thats when then they drag HP and use fuel. Blades are a consumable for optimum performance.
