That is where Gleaner has them from the plant and where they suggest to put them. This would allways be OK other than if you ever leave crop and tailings dump on feed chain where it will settle down in area behind front chain and under rear chain tention drum. It can be very tough to pull straw over the grain that has settled there. This is why we come up with the shocks. With the shocks we can have the drum start out as low as possible and than the shocks stabilize the height of drum directly related to amount of material coming in? Thus we have allways turned blocks to get chain as close as possible to floor without limiting the upward movement. I have a hunch it is only nessesary to have these drums down like I do in a crop like wheat. Other crops would likely be fine in corn position
