Think I want my money back.......
Thanks Andy, I have not opened it up that far. And I haven't run rotor below 650, and usually running fan at 570 so hopefully try that out later. We are standstill again. ThanksQuite the expert...
Canola going over sieves usually tells me over threshing (and overloading) and no matter what you try on sieve settings it won't fix it. Is it worst in the heat of the day and better in the morning and evening?
Concave extensions outer position, as wide on the concave as possible, rotors in low range, slow as they go. I'd try upper at 8-10, lower at 6-8, wind about 750-850. presieve closed or 1 notch. The NH and CIH flagship machines need a little wider on the sieves that sometimes makes sense so you can get the air up and through them to keep the lighter chaff from overloading everything.
Thanks I tried this when it was tough one morning, it worked very well until it got bone dry. I started overloading the sieves so I went with the settings Andy suggested except my fan was much lower. I opened it up 1 7/16" and all my problems went away. I was very happy with the performance in the 4 hours we went yesterday and the hour today! Bloody rain!!!Niel Burg …. This will sound a little far fetched, but it works. Set your sieves the same as your best hard red wheat setting, fan at about 640rpm, concave at around 15/16" and rotors at 1150 rpm. You may need to up or down the fan a bit but it should be close. There should be almost no returns . The high rotor speed is centrifugally separating the canola from the trash . You should see a nice clean sample with virtually no mechanical damage to the seeds, almost impossible to throw over the sieves and the capacity of the combine should increase .
I know this is no where near the book will tell you to set up for but give it a try for all the time its takes. Been do it like this for years and it works on this farm.
oh really i might try it too, dealer said i needed to keep half, so i went with it. i never realized it should be removed in Peas/Beans till i was done them, never had an issue thoI took the humped grain pan out for peas one year and never put it back in. Never had an issue.
