Crop-Lifting Attachments Save Lodged Crops
Mounted 1 ft. apart on the header, the bolt-on "Grain Lifter Guards" consist of 18-in. long, 4 1/2-in. high half-moon-shaped pieces of 1/4-in. thick mild steel with half-moon undercut. They're designed to run 1/2 to 1-in. below the cutterbar.
"The size gives grain enough time to be lifted up and cut and the undercut clears dirt and trash with a gradual flow," Groening says. "The rigid design doesn't plug up like flexible lifters. They mount easily, in a few minutes, and are ideal for lodged cereal crops, peas and lentils."
They sell for $9 apiece (U.S.).
