Simple Attachment Stops Auger Wrapping
This attachment, when fitted to a combine feederhouse, tears Wild Buckwheat - and other such weeds - off the header auger before it starts to wrap. The product is called "The Buck Stops Here", and is manufactured by North Dakota farmer Roger Gutschmidt.
  "Wild Buckwheat is especially a problem in flax and edible beans," he says. "If one strand of wild buckwheat starts wrapping on the auger, it never comes off by itself. But with my product, the spring-loaded teeth tear it off and the plant goes into the combine. The teeth are set as close to the auger as possible, but are not touching."
  The device is mounted with bolts to Gutschmidt's Deere 9650 combine's feederhouse. This way, he can take the header on and off and not have to remove the attachment each time.
