In wheat, what cylinder speed works best for your 9600?
I've always been able to fine tune things exactly to my liking, but this year is different. Granted, the wheat is very poor, and the seed size is all over the place. I am having to basically put the header on the ground, as there are heads from the ground up...

Plz tell what cyl speed works best for hard red winter wheat.

This year, I ran mine anywhere from 670-1050. Different variety's needed different speeds.
800 - 950 tx. have harvested a lot of poor wheat, and have normally found the concave had to be completely shut in those conditions as well, when wheat has had a tough finish its always tight in the head too.
