Low-Cost Feederhouse Reverser
"I cut four notches into a steel ring and welded the ring to a short length of 2-in. sq. steel tubing. A bolt on each side of the ring fastens the tubing to the end of the feederhouse shaft. To operate the reverser I use an unplugging wrench that comes with the combine and is designed to unplug the cylinder and open the rock trap. I simply fit the wrench over the end of the tubing and turn it. It turns easy. Works as good as a $1,200 commercial hydraulic reverser, maybe better, because if rocks get caught in the feederhouse I can watch them come out of the header as I turn the wrench and make sure that they're all out before I start combining again."
