We have dropped straw in the same field as an axial flow before and to say the least wow! they really grind up the straw. I'm not saying anything against axial flows but if straw was a major factor in which combine to purchase I would shy away from an axial flow.

Setup is a big thing on a caseih, turn the veins to fast, straw chopper to slow, and this year im going to take the blades off the chopper drum. Keep the combine full!!!! Also the greener the better on the straw. I ran a 2188, then 2388, and now a 7010. We use our straw for ginseng so the longer the better. Dont forget that you can back out a slug on a case and not a deere

I'm not telling you what to do but be very careful when running the combine without the blades on the chopper drum, many times in this area they have packed full of straw between the rotor and chopper drum and then you have a real mess on your hands for a while! Guys around have tried it but it only takes one time of plugging that area of the combine and you'll probably never run without them again...just my 2 cents.

I think you would have to do it in pairs to keep the unit balanced.

I took every other blade out in '07 and it beat the flange up pretty bad it was way out of balance. Just thinking that maybe i would take all blades out this year. think it would work?

perhaps you could fabricate some sort of 3 paddle system that would use the existing bolt holes that are on the rotor and since it's a paddle system it will still balance itself but won't hurt the straw as it helps it out of the combine.
