I'm sure there's been some discussion on this subject before, but has anyone had any experience using Gorden cover plates with large wire concaves in wheat and milo versus small wire concaves? Any gain or loss in sample quality or capacity? Also, what set ups do you all run for various crops? Thanks in advance!

I bought the cover plates from him. They work just like they claim. You don't have to put small wire in for wheat. Just use large wire with cover plates. I usually use all 3 cover plates, all large wire, then usually one or two keystock and the last one slotted grate. I also use them in soybeans when required. We are in the seed business and white caps aren't an issue with them. Remember though, when you cover the front of the rotor with cover plates, I believe it is important to make up for the lost area in the back with something like keystock grates, depending on conditions. Along with this setup, I have the gordon rotor bars which work great. Just bought airjet chaffer for beans and pleased with it. Going to get screens for corn, wheat and fescue. I am sure I will like them. Good luck
