Our main combine has an agshield pea auger on it but I tried this strap idea last year with our 2nd combine in the peas.If ur in a bind for a cross auger u can get by with a "poor man's cross auger."
I've used this before and plan on using it again this fall to straight cut standing canola.
Go buy a single continoius strap, probably around 4"- 6". Put a good twist in it and hook it to either side of header where a cross auger would go. On my JD 930D there just happendend to be holes cut out on the reel lift linkage to attach the strap so i did not need to make anchor points. Do not join 2 straps as crop material will grab the joiners.
We paid a fair bit less than that for a pea auger this fall on that 630d header, but who cares?!!!!the twist acts just like a piece of auger flighting would. Unfortunately the twist will be be the correct way for one side of the draper header and the opposite way for the other side. So it will be fighting the crop a little on the wrong side of the draper header. The twist is essential. Don't know how many many twists are the perfect number but it must be twisted. If the strap is snugged/sinched up flat w/o any twist it will actually cause you more feeding problems. Finally phoned for a quote on a croos auger and they (AG Shield) wants ~$5300 plus freight. What a joke!!! What was your price quote??
