Anyone ever used the poly auger fingers from Shoup? I punched 5 holes in the nice strait auger in my new to me 215 after picking up a rock today. These steel fingers never break like they are supposed to, just always bend for me.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Composite fingers # H205318 $8.67

Guides (larger hole for the composite finger) #H179000 $4.04

Guide screws (I think they are longer than the steel guide ones) #H86918 $.79

These numbers are off of a 900 series intermediate serial number head. The early and late heads had a different setup. They requires different holders and some other parts. These composite ones work well and are cheaper to switch to.

We put fiberglass fingers on Case IH heads on 2388's when they first came out, maybe six or seven years ago. We had steel fingers going through the combine and being sent through the top of the choppers. One went through the fuel tank. The fiberglass ones we had available to us at that time wore down to a splintered stump in about a week. But there was no more damage to the cross augers or the combine. We eventually went back to steel fingers because of the large volume of fiberglass ones we were replacing on 8 heads. For one combine run by the owner I'd say go with fiberglass. You'll have time to replace them on the tough dewey mornings we have in the midwest. Jim

I'm sure they are Deere fingers because it had a ton of new parts when I got it and even the belts are Deere. Thanks for the advice.

The poly ones are not very good. I run the fiberglass ones that JD/A&I has. They are stiffer and will feed in just like the steel ones. The poly ones tend to bend and not feed in correctly.

Also I found that if you are still using the steel fingers use the JD ones. They are harder and will break rather than bend. I also have took my cut off saw and cut the new fingers thinner at the break point.
