honeybee header 4000 series

Test
Sep 22, 2020 | 21:40 1 wrapping right hand side of auger on a case combine
can't see any difference from left side
older SP honeybee on other combine no problems , anyone have any ideas?
took far right finger out , seemed a little better
seems to jam straw in between flighting and right side of throat and stop auger
straw isn't real great , heavy crop Reply With Quote

What could be worse than wore out strippers?
Angry wives?
If she's operating the combine....

    This 4000 series doesnt let you adjust it
    Button doesnt do anything
    Somehow the chip in that header bypasses it
    But when we have the SP honeybee on it works or the 3020 flex also or pickup as well Reply With Quote

    Wives?

    Definitely a case where more of something isn’t better............... Reply With Quote

    Bearing on right side of drum was right gone and cut the shaft off
    Guess it pays to clean ALL the straw out
    Lucky we kept the old auger header Reply With Quote

    Sounds like one of the wives wasn't doing her pre-op checks properly. Reply With Quote
