Are there issues with flax and Deere STS machines. We have 60 and 70 series machines and have not harvested flax with them. Is the rear beater an issue or typical of most things is it just a problem under adverse conditions. Any experience would be appreciated.

If you are straight cutting, make sure you spray it.

And don't use a John deere draper, go get a macdon.

Check the back beater for build up every few days.

we used a JD draper this year on our 9770 in unsprayed flax and it worked really well. We didn't seem to have any problems with the back beater wrapping or anything.

This year the flax was really tough, wet and cold out so we didn't even think about spraying it and it flowed really nice into the feeder house with a draper header. It worked a lot better then our 635F head
