Still having losses issues on grain. tried many combination, but it is not helping. going with very low speed - 4mile per hour.
If anyone can give advice i would appreciate.

Thank you

Can you tell me if your loss is from the rotor or the shoe (sieves)? Are you cutting low (high MOG condition)? What type of header / crop yield and variety are you working with? What configuration of concave modules are installed? Rape is not common in the US. I have harvested it but not with an 8010.

Partly correct.
When Canada changed to the more "friendly" terminology the seed quality was also improved by the reduction of erusick(SP!) acid making it a better oil quality seed.
