Deutz Unveils New Combine Add Ons
Deutz, the Germany company that now owns Allis Chalmers, doesn't export its combine to the U.S. But some of the combine add-ons the company introduced at the recent Agritechnica may end up on the U.S.-made Deutz-Allis Gleaner combines, according to company representatives.
Extendable Grain Head: In an effort to stop grain loss through shattering, Deutz has developed 2-ft. extensions for the grain table on its grain heads (shown above). Farmers use the regular-width table in small grain like wheat and barley which lets the reel push the crop into the cutterbar and then back into the feeder auger. But in easily shattered crops like rapeseed, much of the grain is lost as soon as the reel touches the crop. The extended grain table catches that shattered seed.
The extension kit .can be installed in a couple hours. Includes a kit to move the cutterbar drive out to the new position.
Feeder Cylinder: Big new feeder cylinder is designed to put an end to plug-ups in big crops with lots of straw. The 3-ft. dia. cylinder mounts just behind the cleaning cylinder and concave above the shoe. Rows of 3-in. wide paddles aggressively push the crop out onto the sieves. Makes it almost impossible for crop material to build up, increasing speed and capacity of the machine. In a lighter crop it doesn't affect operation.
Hillside Cleaning Sieves: Crowds of farmers packed into the Deutz exhibit to get a look at the company's new hillside cleaning sieves. The new sieves, which are available only on the latest new Deutz combine, are mounted on rotating shafts that allow the sieves to pivot on hillls. The electronic leveling sensor detects the slightest change in contour and instant acting hydraulics change the working angle of the sieves. "These leveling sieves make use of the latest new electronic and hydraulic technology. Sieves will be on the level 100% of the time," says M. Dauser, sales representative.
