I was wondering if the high speed setting on the clean grain elevator would hurt grain quality a lot? I was also wondering if it helps capacity very much on the clean grain elevator. My last question is if it makes the clean grain elevator chains wear out way faster. Thanks in advance for any replies.

on my 2577 running it on high in corn and in double crop beans and saw no damage to grain and yes it will stress the elevator more so im switching mine back to low for soybeans and wheat

We run ours in high all the time. Grain damage isn't an issue. I can't say for sure if it wears the chain out faster or not. We replaced it last year after two paddles fell off, but there's no telling how long that chain had been there before we got the combine.

As I understand if you're cutting high-yielding corn it's necessary to run the fast sprockets, otherwise you'll plug the elevator.
