What’s everybody’s thoughts on the perforated cascade pan in small grains? I am embarrassed to say this, but we run one combine that has it. And one that does not. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen any difference between the two in the way of sample or loss? Anybody else have experience?

I thought my sample was a bit dirty than non cascade but it all worked extremely well. Still a sample I get complemented on all the time though. Running them together as you have says it all.

Also have one of each and I think it really shines on the steep slopes getting grain off the top of the shoe. I don't see a down side in our conditions as they both have clean samples.

Both have the same offset dividers that don't run all the way to the back for the slopes.

Glenn,do you run your chaffer that wide in your wheat? Scary looking.
Yes big wheat. It is a low angle and you can see the tips pointed back more than it really looks.
The chaff deflector was down so just trying to get a picture.

I tell you one thing. We started out a new machine in a field test with Lexion. Gleaner road show a few years ago. We had no chance to test , adjust, shine up machine or anything. The Gleaner guy had set the shoe per cab display and never looked at sieve and chaffer. We had nice sample but had a little shoe loss. This being weird I went and looked at shoe to find chaffer basically shut and sieve wide open. Unbelievable we didn't have the ground red with wheat. I think the perforated pan was the saving grace and does help for the hills and or huge corn yields.
