So yesterday afternoon, we started in on corn with the 105. And after 1 load combined, the chaffer started to go.
I had purchased one last year used, and less than perfect. And today it went in... so much for having everything ready.
I'd still like to find a new one... and called a few aftermarket places. No one makes one, and nobody seemed very interested in coming up with a close fit.
My chaffer is 48 in wide, and could be either 48 or 60 in long, as there is a 1 foot bolt on section on the back.
Anybody know of anything that would fit???? I'm told a Gleaner F is the same width but shorter.
Anybody have experience with an airfoil?
All I do is corn... could I just replace the chaffer with a screen that would keep the cobs and husks out???
I will admit, this is kind of a game to keep the old girl going. But she sure runs good and is simple to fix- although the chaffer thing is getting frustrating. A 9500 or something would be a nice replacement.
But here's the rub... my neighbor does our beans for us, and does a good job. He traded his 9500 for a 9550 this spring, and it's a nice machine. But newer stuff certainly isn't trouble free. We finished the beans today, and discovered, when done, something was shooting sparks somewhere, as there were burning embers in various places!!! Newer doesn't mean NO headaches, and sometimes more. I appreciated the simplicity of the 105 today!!!
