Who makes a stainless steel or mild steel liner for under the tank augers? My search function comes up emply and google only finds poly ones. Anyone have any experience with either one. I need to replace my 1460's
CNH now offers stainless liners as a kit, with two troughs and rivits. I've put in several and they fit real nice. Since usually only the rear trough wears through and both are the same, one kit will do two machines.
What's wrong with the poly liners? We put a set in the 1480 last spring, and as far as I'm concerned they're the greatest thing since sliced bread. Everything runs nice, and the tank is much easier to clean out.
Have there been problems with the poly one's? Just curious, 'cause I hadn't heard anything bad about them before we put them in.
found what I think is the correct thread to start out at before creating a new one. 1440, was hoping to find some poly inserts for horizontal grain tank inserts. top auger is starting to wear though and will need for next fall. Links will be greatly appreciated.
I have no idea why people insist on quick fixes for this problem. If you rivet them in, or screw or bolt or whatever, you end up with a place for moisture and fine dirt to accumulate, rusting out whats left of the original trough. Welding them in is in my opinion the only way to go. Of course then you'd be limited to using mild steel ones, like the ones that hoxie implement sells.
I have installed by welding stainless steel in two of my past combines. A 1680 and a 2388. Yes you can weld the stainless in with a wire welder and the proper wire. Its gonna splatter and you're gonna get burned a little. You're gonna say things under your welding helmet, but its gonna be fun.
Be aware of dust and chaft on the bottom side of the hopper. You will be burning the paint so there can be a fire.
I have been told that the only difference between using the poly or stainless ones is that the poly since it is less stiff will accumulate dirt under itself say in the instance of a corn head auger bottom liner and push up into the auger and wear through prematurely.
