We run three 23 series combines on harvest and have always had the specialty rotors with the standard elephant ears. I have heard of other options and kits that are supposed to be better for feeding the rotor and what not.
Just wonderin if anybody is having luck with anything else.

Thanks,

We installed a Kile on a 1640 this past fall and had good luck with it in soybeans. We were able to gain 1/2 to 1 mph and we could start picking a little earlier in the morning as well as pick a little later at night. You will likely see the same results with a Stewart, or the AFX you can get from the Case dealer. From what we have seen the auger front is a lot easier on the combine, it feeds evenly, and it reduces rumbling in green stem beans. I am interested to see how it will work in wheat this year.

Thanks everybody, very helpful info. I'm interested in running one of these kits. What is the website to the kile acc. kit?
Do they seem to last as long or longer than the old elephant ears? Are they hardend or reinforced?

Thanks again,
