2. Crop Flow

Intake elevator

Starting at the header, check that crop is evenly filling the full width of the elevator by opening either the intake elevator access door or stone-trap.

If the crop is not filling the entire width, output will be limited. To even out the swath of material, short bolt-on sections of auger flights can be added or removed. Retractable fingers can also be repositioned to ensure crop is fed evenly into the elevator.

Failure to get this right will mean your entire threshing and separation system is working at a reduced capacity.
