Looks like we are giving up waiting on the canola, wheat and oats to dry down and heading over to try the beans tomorrow.

Was looking for a start point with my settings, if anyone is willing to help me out?

Thank you so much for all your help and advice :)

On 8120.

Rotor 700
Fan 1100
Top Sieve 15
Bottom sieve 16
Presieve 4
Concave 5 if greener, 10-15 if drier. Keep tightening up until you see the odd cracked one. Cracked ones aren't dockage anyway for our market. Make sure you shell the beans out, might have to get more aggressive if not quite fit. Unshelled pods in hopper is no good, either wait to combine or clean them out.

Small wire row 1, large wire 2 and 3, slotted in row 4.
