I don't know if this problem is specific to the Titan series or also the newer ones but this 7721 pull type I have recently acquired has a really bad chaff trap that seems almost impossible to clean out without disassembling the combine.
When I remove the plastic covers over the rear straw walker crankshaft on the outside of the body, there is a buildup of chaff and grain in the cavity that extends right down to the bottom of the sheet metal. Water has got in since the machine sat outside on the dealers lot, although it could also be from some over zealous pressure washing. Consequently there is some wet , rotting material trapped between the double walls of the body that I can't get out. I"m considering cutting some cleanout holes on the inside of the body panels so I can get an air compressor gun in there to blow the dust out in the future so it never builds up that bad again.
I figure if I don't it will eventually rust through the body anyway since the material can't get out of the machine and will lay there and rot and rust.
