What do you mean by rattle chain? Do you have a quick tatch head? I thought the JD corn heads for that had augers where the throat is.

Dalet: The raddle chain does the same thing as the shoe augers on your JD 4400. The raddle carries the grain/trash up from under the cylinder. The straw walkers have a pan made in the bottom of them to shake the grain forward. If you go down a steep hill the raddle chain will plug and if you shell up a steep hill the straw walker pans can get full and walk all the grain out the back.

The augers where a big improvement over the raddle chain. I think this one thing really jumped JD ahead in the combine market around here.

The 'raddle'(its "raddle",not rattle) chain is under the concave and conveys the threshed grian back to the seives.Steve

Your right Delta I spelled it wrong. I checked the slip clutch tension and gave the the chain a little more slack. I will try again tomorrow. This is the best corn I have ever had yield and test weight are high. The 45 was not made for this kind of corn but it is all I have. I will have to take my time. My wife took some video maybe I can try and post some later. Thanks for the reply"s
