We have a 9120 and are harvesting sideoats. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the stuff to unload without having to dig it out every time?

We used to cut ryegrass for seed years ago and it would bridge in the grain tank. We took the cover off the top of the sideways auger (New Holland Combine ) and never filled the tank more than half full so there was less chance of the crop settling.
There was also a plate you could fit at the outlet of the unloading auger which was to stop the stuff being pushed into the end of the auger and jamming before it could fall out of the chute. The plate was about 8 inches square and clamped around the central auger axle like a paddle. We never actually needed it because our seed would not go into the auger fast enough.
Forgot to add, always keep the auger at full speed too and if it does bridge, use a stick not a metal bar !!! :)

We did this with perennial ryegrass as well with a JD9860.
