Do you have what you would consider hard threshing wheat? Never used these but always been sceptical on what they would do in tough wheat. Would be awesome to never change. Also are you running them in all 3 or just the first one?Look at Howard Concaves too. They are full size concaves but don't need to be changed. We harvest canola, durum, lentils and soybeans and never change concaves.

Think that's Sunnybrook.KX7 is another lot, but i think they might just be from PF parts anyway.
We are running all 3. The openings in the front concave are different than the back 2. We used to grow Strongfield durum which was a harder threshing durum but don't know how it would compare to say Glenn wheat, which i've heard is very hard threshing. The full set of concaves is under $3K and they come with filler plates for the 2 front concaves.Do you have what you would consider hard threshing wheat?

There are a couple options.

Sorry don`t have the links but you can google them.
I run the Sunnybrook style and they work well for us.
I use them in place of the first two factory concaves(4 sections sunnybrook) then a wide space JD in the 3rd position.I am now considering the Sunnybrook half size concaves,
I like the looks and the lighter weight. I use a round
bar for soybeans and corn.
2014 was my first year with a 9770 and I could not get
the small wire concaves to thresh out the white caps.
That is after installing 3 covers. Really frustrating
with 70 bus. wheat, and having 3% dockage.
I could always grind it out with my 9610.
For those that use the Sunnybrook, how do you set
them up? The first 4, and then a regular small wire?
Looking for advice before I order.
