I want to try and direct harvest Navy beans this fall. We have been pulling and windrowing. I am growing them in 30" rows and many times the plants lean right over on the ground. I have an SCH cutting system one our 25 ft. 1020 and I am looking for some advice on crop lifters. I have seen the SCH style but I think they are more for cereal crops. I can only find one kind on the Internet http://www.flexxifinger.com/ . Their pulse crop lifter looks like a good idea. Anyone have some advice???

Gaterman makes them also. I have a set I bought a few years ago and never used. I'm in Ontario less than 4 hours from you and the $ difference will help you if your interested. My daughter might be going to Freeland end of month or early Sept. Perhaps she could take them to you.

Their is also a company called J.E. LOVE manufacturing in Eastern Washington State. We have been using these lifters since the 70's and always have had good luck. Our neighbor is running them on a 2020 flex and said that they worked great for harvesting dry peas, don't know about Navy beans. http://www.jeloveco.com/ is the site you will have to look at the Love floating cutter bar. The lifters will be sold as a part but do bolt directly on a 2020 don't know about a 1020. Good luck.
