Worn knives and other vital parts on your combine engine can lead to a litany of field problems. However, AgWeb’s Dan Anderson reveals three ways to optimize the horsepower of your combine’s engine.
- Ensure sharp and well-adjusted grain platform cutterbars. Sharp cutterbars ensure no unnecessary effort is spent on the same tasks.
- Change out worn concaves and rasp bars to avoid making the combine work harder than needed to thresh grain. This tip has also been reported to improve grain quality.
- Avoid dull chopper flail knives. These can take up to 25% of a combine’s engine to run the copper. Poor shredding residue can also lead to tillage problems in the spring.
