F2 Case combine
Here's a photo of the F-2 Case combine I still use to harvest brome grass seed. Introduced in the early forties, it has a very short grain pan and a return raddle (slat apron) under the straw walker to bring all the grain from under the straw rack and deposit it on the front end of the sieves. Consequently, grain and chaff get the full benefit of the sieve areas and grain doesn't have a chance to work sideways on hills. I'm surprised that no combine manufacturers copied this system.
