Manufacturers Design Cylinder Bars For Wheat"Manufacturers design cylinder bars primarily for wheat. The bars aren't aggressive enough for corn or soybans," says Clarence Trimpe, Seymour, Ind., who has been custom retooling rasp bars for years since he first tried it on a Gleaner "E" in 1966. Why haven't manufacturers followed suit? "They'd probably ruin their market for replacement bars. These reworked and hard-surfaced bars last at least three times as long as company bars," says Trimpe.
