Inexpensive Way To Get Chaff Spread Out On 1981 Massey 751 Pull-Type Combine
Year after year, my 1981 Massey 751 pull-type combine left straw piled up in big wind-rows in the field. I finally came up with an in-expensive way to get chaff spread out uniformly up to 20 ft.
I installed a Massey straw chopper kit on the rear of combine and mounted the chaff spreaders upside down underneath the sieves. Spreaders mount on a frame I made out of 2 by 4-in. tubing. They drive off the re-turn grain cross auger with an 8-in. dia. pulley and V-belt I got at my Massey dealer. I got the correct length belt through trial and error. I use a spring loaded idler sprocket in-stalled in an existing hole in the back of the combine to maintain tension. Cost me about $20 and works like a charm.
