Has Anyone Used one of the shoup Gateway chaffers before? We got one last week for one of the combine. It seems to be built good. The teeth are a white plastic. It didnt come with a wiring harness. But we just used the one from the old chaffer. It seems to be about 288 sq In bigger because it doesnt have the black fingers on the back. It was almost $550 cheaper then a deere one. I guess we will see how good it is in the long run.
Shoup seems to have a lot of good quality parts at good prices too.

the reason it's cheaper is because it doesnt come in a box with the leaping deere on it. i have bought over $20,000 of parts from the and im very satisfied. if i am gonna buy chinese made s h i t i want the chinese made price!

a few years ago when i first started using Shoup's products i bought a roll of american made chain from them. at the same time i was replacing chain i replaced several sprockets on a 9610. not being that familiar with Shoup or thier products i opted to buy the sprockets from the dealer, becuase i wanted 'the good stuff' well when they came in they had a sticker placed on each and every one of them "MADE IN CHINA" so youre gonna have to tell that bull$**** somewhere else that oem is better than Shoup's. sounds like a commision drawing parts man talking to me! I'm sure lots of Shoup's parts are made i China, I know lots of Deere's are. One again if im getting Chinese parts i want a Chinese price. Who in thier right mind wouldnt??

just cause it's made in china doesn't mean it's built worse. they can put the same things into the mfg in china as they do in america. it all depends on the quality they put into it. like said before, you get what you pay for

Well I know we bought alot of bearings from Deere for our 750 drill, but they kept failing. So we went to the local auto parts store and got a bounch of chinese made bearings...guess what they lated alot longer. Turns out the deere bearings only have a dab of grease in them and the "cheap" ones where packed full. The Deere techs new about it too.
