Sickle Section Shopper Blades For Case-IH Combines
Newer soybean varieties often ripen on green stems, resulting in extra tough residue. Clever Tech of Jesup, Iowa, has just introduced new replacement chopper blades for Case-IH combines that are much more aggressive.
  "We use conventional sickle sections that are riveted into place so you can easily replace them if they break off and also reverse them as they wear," says Robert Rottinghaus of Clever Tech, noting that a Canadian company also uses sickle sections to beef up Case-IH choppers but welds the sections in place. Rottinghause feels they must be riveted in place to be practical.
  You simply rivet the sickle sections to the original U-shaped cutter blades. The new add-on sections come assembled ready to bolt to the chopper bar.
  Sells for $119 plus S&H. Fits all Axial Flow combines built since 1977.
