Just wondering when people decide to replace their sieves. I have an 8010 with about 1800 threshing hours on it the sieves seem okay they have a tiny bit of play but not a lot. Was thinking of replacing them because it seems to be alot of hours for them but given the condition I am hesitant to waste money. What how do you determine when to replace your sieves.

If your really board you can remove them and take silicone, cut the top off so the hole is about a 1/4" big than slide over the top of the wires than pump some in.

I haven't done this but have seen it done, some guys say they do it to the new ones claiming once it's done they will last until the frame breaks

Dunno about you guys over there but we have a company over here in OZ that makes sieves and ALL wires or rods are in a plastic bush

Way way better than CIH CNH genuine ones


Edit: It’s actually usually the grain recieval depot and or the Trucky that lets you know it’s time. They bring back a souvenir or two:red-neck-laughing-s:red-neck-laughing-s:red-neck-laughing-s

I've had over 4000 hours on sieves and they still were doing their job but a little loose . The big killer of sieves is the shaker drive goes out of time by just a bit and it will shake them to pieces as they are getting twisted just a bit every time they cycle .

Top sieve gets removed and replaced with airfoil sieves from now on here. No moving parts. Much lighter which is easier on the shaker frame on every combine. Saves canola losses. Not sure why combines don't just come with one.
I have an airfoil for wide body CNH for sale because it can't let oats through fast enough to prevent losses when you put a stripper header on the combine. Works good otherwise.

I could see that happening in oats if the sieve area was small like some deere's. Not sure on Case's size. Oats can be terrible to put through a combine and slow. But ripe swathed oats can fly through with a pile of grain to separate. Different scenarios create different troubles as always.
