Power Deflector Directs Combine Grain Flow
Designed and built by Cullom, Ill., farmer Steve Haag, the power deflector consists of a 13 1/2-in. wide deflector shield and 18 by 28 in. side sheets built of 14 ga. steel that attach to the end of the auger. It's powered by a 12-volt actuator you control from an electric toggle switch inside the cab.
You simply remove the existing discharge spout and bolt the new unit into place in existing holes. The grain saver is not removed and the attachment will not restrict grain flow, Haag notes.
The deflector moves grain flow the en-tire width of a 400 or 500 bu. grain wagon or cart for "no hassles" unloading, he says.
Weighs about 47 lbs. and installs in an hour to an hour and a half. Fits all Deere 9000 series and all late model Case-IH combines. It sells for about $475.
