Adjustable air foil chaffer
"It's the first adjustable air foil chaffer ow the market," says Loewen Mfg., Winnipeg, Man., marketer of the new product which is also known as the Peterson air foil chaffer. It can be "fine tuned" to ensure a clean sample with all types of grain, including small seeded crops such as alfalfa, flax, canola (rape) and bluegrasss, notes Wayne Loeppky, sales manager.
An adjustable lever (two on larger models) allows you to set the chaffer for optimum opening and air flow to match spedific crop harvesing conditions.
The new-style chaffer replaces the top chaffer of your present combine and is easy to install. "Special louvers underneath direct air almost straight up, creating an air cushion which carries trash out the back and allows seed to drop through the sieve underneath to provide almost 100% recovery," explains Loeppky. "It's much more effective than ordinary standard chaffers."
Available for most makes and models of rotary or conventional combines. Sells for $390 to $790, depending on size.
