I am about to do some work on a MF 9560 and was thinking about changing from the standard concave setup to possibly something better.
Is there something better, using different concaves, rotor segments, ect?

Standard set up is OK, but one should always look to improve things.
We do Wheat, Barley and Canola with some big volumes of straw at times.
Interested on what people have encountered and think about the possibilities.

I have a challenger 540 and in our dry area with relatively lower yields, it struggles some to get a real clean sample in wheat. Does pretty well in lentil and chicpea with proper factory concaves as they seem to thresh easier. I have cleaned it up a bit through covering first couple small grain concaves and adding interrupter plates. I am thinking of going with some sunnybrook concaves for first three positions, as I have seen a couple combines being serviced at local dealer with this set-up, so might be the trend.

I run a 9540, George Kuchar builds concaves for these things. Kuchar Combines. I bought the combine this way. I like it, the previous owner said it works better with these concaves as well.
