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.

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.
