Hey fellas we have just purchased a CR 970 and really know nothing about it, we have ran walker combines for ever. Anyways I am just wondering what all I have to do to set them for peas? I have pulled every other wire on the bottom of the concave. Do I have to remove every other wire on the section of concave that you remove?Is there anything else? Any advice I can get on this machine would be great! It has the automatic stone door? this worries me a bit, guess I have some reading to do. I am looking forward to putting up against our CX. Thanks

You can tilt the extensions (the little concave) out to the other hole position to make it less aggressive. I always pulled wires on them as well, but not sure if that mattered or not. One thing I did do because we grow Strongfield durum was build cover plates for the extensions. I just welded two bolts with the threads pointing out on them and built a plate of sheet metal to be held on by those bolts. I think it helped get a more complete thresh when I had covers on the main concaves. It made sure that butts and heads couldn't escape until they got another crack at threshing.

Thanks Andy, hopefully our wheat thrashes like last year but not likely. I was just reading some of your old posts about the CR combines, thanks!

You don't need to pull the wires we used to do that then we traded combines half way through peas one year and there was absolutely no difference in splits between the 2 combines. Make sure you put the smooth doors on the re-thrashers. The stone door is annoying but for us everytime it opens there is a rock on the ground under it. When you get to cereals you can lower the sensitivity of it to stop some of false openings.
