Lots of straw here this year so tuning up the straw chopper seems in order. Would appreciate hearing your opinions and experiences with a Rodono straw chopper. Looking at putting one in a P1 R70, harvesting wheat, barley oats, peas, canola. Also what stationary knife do you use, and how far in do you set it? Thanks.

put rodonos on both of my n6s. they are better but still not perfect. if the knives are put all the way up they will bend then get broke off. someone makes heavy knife kit but not sure who. in northern us i think.

Sales person at rodono said some people run without a stationary knife which seems pointless unless you're trying to save straw for baling. Ever considered using serrated knife sections for the chopper concave? Would take a bit of modifying I guess.

Usually nothing but dust and a pitiful amount of short straw comes out the chute except when straw is tough, and at the rate harvest is (not) progressing this year, tough straw could be common.
