My comment is more a "practical" guess than anything. Shut off 1 of the 2 cross augers, and you are still getting all the grain thats gravity fed into the vertical auger as well as a possibly increased feed from the single running auger. (Assuming that 2 augers kinda "force feeds" the vertical auger, and a half full vertical auger will accept more grain from just 1). At least that's always what I see on my combines...the back auger goes down way faster after the front one empties.
No gravity feed on Claas, I thought there would be as well but within 1 second of shutting cross augers off (nothing special to do, just turn auger off as normal) vertical tank auger empties regardless of tank level.
While hopper appears to empty that way I’m sure the provide equal flow to vertical auger.
I scoffed at tank shutoff augers initially but the large diameter long augers now showing up it’s an excellent feature.
And the large hoppers make auger emptying more likely as well.
I am looking for my first disk, I found a nice clean 26’ 3900. The blades are 20.5” the old owner said he’s never had a bearing go out. I got home and found a lot of negative stuff on forums while a few guys have had good luck with them. most guys say case ih upgraded the disks problem areas...
Looking to get a tillage tractor for a 26’ case ih 3900 disk. I want an original 71-89 series magnum. I wouldn’t mind having a 2wd for the simplicity and row crop work and better turning radius. Will say a 7230 2wd pull that size disk? I farm mostly flat creek and river bottom fields.
Within two season we had two chopper shaft broke just on left side big pulley where two speed chopper drive is. Pulley came of drop down top battery box where positive cable battery box it started a fire burn most wire loom above it hydro hose .Has anyone had issue in this area its only done...
Hey, we are looking to upgrade from our 2366 to an 8230. It doesn’t come with a grain head unfortunately. Want a Draper head for sure. Don’t know what size would work best. And we are debating
Between a Macdon or an AirFLEX from honeybee. Any info would be much appreciated
