Gentle Concaves Improve Bottom Line
If you have a Case IH combine, a set of custom concaves from Kringstad Ironworks can help your bottom line by keeping dockage to a minimum, according to Les Woinarowicz.
"Our design does a better job removing chaff and cleaning the final product with less damage and cracking," says Woinarowicz. "Faster threshing lets the combine run easier, too, with less vibration and rumbling."
Faster flow-through reduces the load on the rotor as well. Woinarowicz notes that this all adds up to less power needed for operation and improved fuel economy.
While the company has never done a comparison to identify what percentage reduction in cracking occurs, Woinarowicz believes sales speak for themselves. "We've sold about 30 sets over the past five years and we've had nothing but positive feedback," he says.
The heavy-duty steel concaves are priced at $300 each and can be purchased in sets of two or three. Woinarowicz notes that some customers replace all three concaves in their combine, while others keep one original and replace the other two.
