The mounts for threshing sweeps are field installed on 16 model 9 series. They will be factory on 17, sounds like it is a big leap in capacity. Also you might look into a corn ring, basically just a straight helical bolted directly in front of discharge opening.

Is there such a thing a too many sweeps? It seems to me that the more efficiently you can move the crop and the thinner you can keep the mat, the better your rotor should perform.

They were losing rice out the rotor but the 97's were ordered in Australia with the fine wire concave???? I took out every second one before starting up but it was not enough so they took all of them out and are happy with it now. They also took of the sweeps over the thresher. I'm sure if you fiddled with the sweeps you would get it spot on but it is hard to stop when your head is down and bum up. They took a drone video so we'll post it later. They had a few electronic issues initially but got it sorted in the end. Crop is doing 13t/ha . I'm only relaying what I'm told and haven't got to see it working yet
adsinaus and goodoo like this.

He said 35-40 but he is not pushing it as they have to be able to keep it away. He said he has been up 55t/h.

My brothers run 45 ft. heads in rice so a 35 ft. should be no problem.

Our 97 came with only 3 on the thresher side, it does have the mounts on the sep. end so why don't they put them on at the factory!! I took one off and a machine shop made some exactly like them for only $30.00 apiece. Saved almost a thousand dollars. Now I did have to weld them together but that was nothing.

We have been setting up with the 9 seperator sweeps similar to sunnybrook site for a few years now with no problems. A couple operators have a couple reverse bars on seperator side because it makes them happy. We have been adding the three threaser sweeps since we discovered Gleaner is installing stock. All this working good for our crops. Now with some folks looking for closer to zero loss we went forward. We first straightened out three more helicals on the removable seperator cage door to match the so called corn ring that is factory installed. This certainly did not hurt anything so we went a step further. We extended them three helicals onto seperator grate with another set of short helicals. I guess we would have two or three seasons on a few machines with never a complaint on loss or capacity. I think the straight helicals work nice together with the straight helicals for more than a couple reasons. I guess we will be staying with this setup untill we want more capacity with no more power consumption. I am sure this is posible but I will have to get some custom helicals built. I hope this post goes threw for it has been a couple year since I could post. Finally got the right guy to renew my password. Thanks a million buddy.
