I am getting a Friend to make me some shark teeth wear plates with his water jet. These wear plates (bars) are for my 8010 for the rock beater. Has any one done this on a 8010. The 8010 has a Razor style beater from factory but with smooth plates. Our wheat is all down and I need aggressive feeding this year. Will I get wrapping? Talked with Tom Claassen, at Razor Rock Beater and he said try making some, and see how she goes.
For 80 and 60 series combines check this site, for 8010 keep reading!!

That sounds very interesting. Please keep us posted on the results. We found the feeding to be the limiting factor on our 8010, especially in twisted barley and oat straw.

That looks very good. We are wet here too, raining everyday. Please let me know what you think when you get a chance. If they work well, I'd be very interested in buying a set.

My Friend has the blue print on his computer for the 8010 and can cut it out in any kind of steel, stainless or plastic with his water jet. And it is cheaper than serrated ones from caseih.

We did 20 acres today with the teeth and I had no back feeding, but the feeder house still plugged up once here or there. But it was easy to clean out one time back out and away she went again. The straw was damp and moisture was 17. 4.5 miles/hour tops and 25 feet. This barley averaged 110 bpa and 3.5 bales/acre, and was laying down so bad we could not pick it up with the 30 foot 2020. Too hard on the auger chain when bunching. We cut it with a m150 with a d60 deck
