Is there any modifications I can preform to my JD 55 and 3300 combines to keep from slugging the cylinder on windrowed seed. I have the concave opened as far as possible, and keep cylinder speed around 700 rpm for good threshing and to keep too many seeds from being shattered. Your comments are surely appreciated.

is there a product or farmer idea on how to get more grain out of the grain sump on a 7720 t-2

We have used JD 9000 series walker combines for 7 years, currently run a 1999 9610. we also need 3500round straw bales for our 22 straw based hog finishing barns.We typically cut 50 to 80 bu_acre wheat at 2 to 2.5mph taking in 4 ft of straw with 1-2 bushel loss. I have tried to push the combine to 4 mph in these condition but measured up to 10 bu. loss. We have combined 30 bu wheat at 4 mph with2 ft of straw with minimal loss and a 15 bu crop with 1 ft of straw at 8 mph. Our straw is often damp even when grain is dry. I know swathing and or Roundup can help matere the straw, but particularily in winter wheat swathing often means excessive sprouting. Are there any proven and hopefully economical methods to substantially reduce the walker losses and increase the combine rateIJ Has anyone modified one of two combines and measured the differences in the same field IJ Is anyone in a similiar situation where you need the round bale straw, tried all the modification, still could not get an acceptable job and traded to a more suitable combine, if so what combine has high capacity and still leaves the straw in baleable condition even in dry yearsIJ In this late wet year at 2 mph I won't have enough days to get the crop off. So far 20 acres of 85 bushel winter wheat with 1980 acres to go

Brand new 9560STS this year, traded 9400. Deere shop foreman told me today Deere memo says NO grain tank extensions, have evidently seen failures, will void warrantyIJ I was already dissapointed with power and now this. Anyone heard if they are going to offer MOD, or am I going to have to live with the fact that I traded downIJ

I am in search of some information on Mud Hog 4WD system on a 7720 (84). We have had heating problems in the hydro unit since we purchased the used machine. The hydro unit has been replaced with a new one from Eaton and we have had the oil cooler checked and cleaned. The cooling problem only occurs when the 4WD system is NOT in use (road transportation) The Temp sensor has been changed and the control seleniod has been rebuilt. We regularly clean the radiator and I have gone so far as to replace all the foam to keep the dirt to a minimum around the radiator. I am out of ideas and this is not a common system on a combine in this area. The dealers have been at a loss for sugestions so any help would be apperciated.
