Kit # B5848. this kit brings the trough behind feeding auger in beyond side of feeder slats approx 2" and has a stripper on it to help hold the material until it gets to opening
Second kit is # B4829. this is flighing extentions that bring the straw to a center area of fingers and dramatically reduces the chance of overfeeing one side or the other.
I have a guy that had these kits installed and system working great compared to the way delivered to him but still could plug the feeder. Now he has the floor tilted per earlier topics on site and is tring his best to plug but not luck.
This same thing holds true for the Honeybees. If you are having feeding issues be darn sure to get ahold of the best Honeybee/Gleaner guy and be sure you have all that is needed to feed the Gleaner

MacDon may have fixed them by now but when the faring strip kit #B5848 first came out last summer we found that as your feed chain stretches and gets worn it will start catching the edge of those faring strips causing feeding problems. A couple different solutions are to one simply cut a moon shape out of the edge of those so that the chain will clear it or two cut the top half of them completely off right above the stripper and it does not affect feeding. These do help greatly, I think it is essential on a Gleaner to have the outside of your chains covered.

Bump. Due to more reports on headers not set up proper to feed combine feeder properly jumping chains. You have chains giving you trouble it is the header causing it 99 % of the time. Remember if feed is bad enough to jump chains the rest of combine will not work like it can. Even if feed isn't bad enough to jump chain it is still not feeding combine proper all day long if header is not set up proper.
