Hardest part in Aus is stopping the header burning to the ground or setting fire to the countryside. Some years are a lot worse than others last here was a shocker. Cleaning down every box full and a man on stand bye with the firecart. Dry dust is the problem.
Some scientist discounts static buildup as a fire cause but how else do you start smouldering on top of the front elevator or rotor cone.
The dust also seems to attract to hot exhaust manifold and build up there quite quickly. Wind direction plays a big part tail wind is worst.
Settings are easy similar to peas just a fraction bigger.
Have fun but be careful.
