Re: DISCHARGE BEATER

Did you get the dealer to re-configure the computer? They come from the plant with a warning that only signals when the beater is below a certain % speed for greater than 30 seconds or something ridiculous like that...by that time you are usually plugged. They can change the warning to signal when the beater drops below a certain % speed for only 3 seconds which gives you enough time to slow up and let the combine clean itself out. After we got the dealer to make this change with the computer we didn't have a problem plugging. A speed up kit is a good idea also, the beater should be going 50% faster than the rotor...then there would be no bottleneck...the beater would always be able to keep up with the rotor material.

Re: DISCHARGE BEATER

for anyone that cares, you just need to see your local John Deere dealer with this solution # and they can help you. Solution Number: 81972, – Installing the following parts will increase the discharge beater speed from 850rpm to 1000rpm: sheave AXE13665, belt HXE16940, and spring gauge HXE16931.

Re: DISCHARGE BEATER

There is a PIP out on the Beater on all 9870s. I think they cut out some of the vanes in housing between the rotor and beater.

Also everybody should try adding a set of flights to the back of the rotor (Deere should do this from the factory but they where trying to save $50 bucks on a 300k machine)

Re: DISCHARGE BEATER

I also put those paddles on, not because of plugging but to keep pea straw from wrapping
on the rear of the rotor which eventually lead to fire.
It was about 95% effective.
Must be a reason it's not standard, at least on small grain, but it's lost on me.
