Rod, for years I cut Alfalfa with my 1000 with no special attachment's just adjust the sieves and concave clearance and cylinder speed and of course fan/air flow and other than 10%-15% hulls left unthreashed and in the bin it worked fine, I just took the hulls threw them in my broadcaster and spread them on new seeding area's so not a huge loss, but then I was doing 300-1000 lbs total, then I took a old threshing machine fixed sieve that my grand father used in his Red River Special for Alfalfa and by adding two pieces of angle iron on one end it bolted right into the 1000 in place of the cleaning sieve and that brought down the hulls to 1%-3% things were cake now, then I started using my 960 and found the smaller machine was even better at the job and soon found a factory specialty Alfalfa/grass sieve and that brought the hulls down even more and if I used a pickup attachment and windrowed the seed allowing it to dry well I found most times that was the way to go, a heavy frost/freeze and you do not have to windrow at all just cut it direct, this same sieve allows me to harvest Creasted Wheat grass seed very well also as well as Camelina seed (used for Bio-fuel among other things 35% oil content), the bigger machines will do all of the seeds I mentioned but with out a slow speed fan drive attachment they will test you on getting them no to blow out some the smaller 40" machines are very easy to adjust air down to suit these needs and are easier to keep the seed, sorry did not mean to type so much just seemed like it needed explained better LOL here are a couple of shots of the 960 with small seeds in the bin, first shots are Camelina then Crested Wheat Grass last is Alfalfa seed cnt tom

Nutty, Thanks for the extra info and pics. I find it interesting to see how things are done in places other than corn country. Rod.
