R40 Rotor Update

Looking for info on what I could do to my r40 I recently purchased to help out in green stem beans or weedy conditions. I've been running a gleaner k for the past 12 years so I no this is already a big upgrade. I had custom cut cylinder bars in the k that didn't make it a big machine but could take green stuff fairly well . Wondering if there was a certain type bar or rotor configuration that would help .

I'm guessing you've not run it much yet? That's ok since they perform pretty good stock, in green stem beans. But, if you really want to make it easy, and the bars you've got could use replacing, then replacing all the forward bars over the threashing side of the concave with wide spaced bars, like from Trimpe is a start. They really pull material through. Then look at the staggered bars between the second and third rows, along with the f2 bars to really break up and toss the material around before it hits the discharge.

Take a look at the hyper mods to get a good look .

Condition of the helicals is very important, if worn the crop material tends to wad up rather than flow smoothly to the discharge.

Imagine every other bar across the separator side of the rotor being removed. It's easier to show than tell. Go to the hyper mods link to see it. That'll give a clear picture.

You could put a precision rotor in it. Precision Farm Parts in North Dakota makes a really good rotor.
