The rice machines are usually worn much more than average, from the abrasive conditions, so if you are buying one, you need to carefully inspect from top to bottom.

I'm not sure of the differences, so I hope someone on here can help.

Couple things.

Time accelerator has paddles with lugs

Rotor has nine additional elements that can be removed, it's called dense pack

Discharge beater is more aggressive, leave it alone.

Personally, take out the dense pack and move on.

I run a rice machine, never been in rice, they are more durable machines. Stainless, thick skin rotor, etc.

Just curious, I run a 9670 with the rice package. I do not run any rice. Why would u want to take the extra elements out and what about the extra seperator tines.
You would most likely run into an overthrashing issue in some crops, particularly in dry conditions. I know that in our area it would not work in canola. It would create too much chaff on the shoe and likely run into shoe loss. It also takes more power to push the extra elements and tines so the machine can feel doggy.
