a38 tooth is recommended for high yielding, high volume poor feeding straw crops. Requires high feeding package option or conversion bundle.
bFor improved straw quality in dry crops and grain quality, use low speed.
cIn shoe overloading conditions in dry crops, with small wire concaves, initially install two rows on right side and three rows on left side. Large wire concaves, initially install three rows on right side and two rows on left side. Adjust number and pattern as required by condition.
dFor improved grain quality, use slow down kit to 320 rpm.
eBackswept wings can be install for improved damage resistance.
fDo not operate below minimum speed recommendation.
