Bought a CaseIH 1640 last year. Had the same experience with wheat straw last year and at the beginning of harvest this year - almost as if I had a chopper (which the machine does not) - but a few days ago I decided to open the concave from a "1" (for hard to thresh crops) to a 2.5 (regular grain). Huge difference. Straw is not chewed up, full length with heads attached. Fully threshed. Going 3 mph in 70 bpa wheat w/16.5' header. Uses less power & fuel and increases capacity. Hit 3.8 mph yesterday trying to finish a field ahead of a storm. Bottom line, it's all about adjusting the machine correctly to match crop conditions. You can make nice straw behind a rotary. My neighbor put up several thousand bales behind me last week and the bales (late model JD baler) were as perfect as one could hope for.

The Deere baler works better behind a rotary combine as the auger feeds it in better.Years ago a neighbor had barley straw cut with a rotary(it was a wet summer and the straw was rotten and brittle)his New Holland baler would not bale it as the feeder fingers just stired it rather than feed it into the bale case.He used our JohnDeere 327 and got along good.
