Started wheat yesterday. After a few changes my 7120 is during a good job. Smallwire concaves in front with four flaps attached. Replaced the Skipwires with Largewires in the rear. Set the last two vanes in fast position. Rotor 1000,Concaves 0-2, Fan 900, precleaner closed, top chaffer 14, bottom sieve 6. Had to change cleaning sieve from +2% back to 0. Tunnels are rotor 30% sieve25% tailings100% . Very little loss showing in rotor and sieve . 0 to very little showing in tailings. Running 3.2 to 3.4 mph , 90-95% power, 35ft draper. Wheat yielding 80-85 bpa. 13.5-15% moisture, Test weight 61-62 pounds, straw still green . Grain buyer said the sampler was the best he had received this year.Last year had a lot of 1 inch - 2 inch straw pieces . I guess it was from the skipwires.Put the adjustable deflector on spreader. Does a lot better job of spreading straw than with the rods that were used last year.Last year had a lack of power. Switched to Fleetgaurd fuel filters . Have not had a power problem since. I run 10% soy-diesel, Was told the case filters are having trouble with this type of fuel.

The Flaps bolt to the concaves. They hang down about 12 inches. The 7120 has the same rotor as a 8120 but narrower sieves. The flaps or curtains keep the grain from building up on the outsides of the grain pan over loading the cleaning shoe.

i run a 7120 as well in wheat, are you sure the preseive 0, i will have to check my settings but i thought we were around4, if we closed it then we would fill the fan housing, and fill the hopper with chaff, my sample was clean with a liitle unthrashed in tought conditions, with a 40 foot head in 50 plus crop running 6mph, i had a real hp problem as well and changed a few fuel filters till we chiped it, then it felt like the 8120s

I like the 7120 after running it a year. I have always had Deeres.7700,9600,CTS,9650,and 9660. I switched to Case for the design. Less belts,pulleys and chains. The concaves are easy to change and over all serviceability is easier. I like the self leveling cleaning system. It's a plus on even small slopes. I'm 52 and when I buy something I look for it to be simple and easy.
