Electronic Sieve AdjusterElectronic Sieve Adjuster
"It allows you to fine-tune your sieve position on-the-go from the cab instead of stop-ping to do it," says George Kuchar, Kuchar Combine Performance, about a first-of-itskind automatic electronic remote sieve adjuster. He unveiled it at the recent National Farm Machinery Show at Louisville, Ky.
It consists of a color-coded electronic analogue needle gauge that mounts in the combine cab. A glance at the gauge tells instantly the position of your grain sieve. A switch on the gauge electronically activates an electric screw actuator on the sieve adjustment control.
The system can also be used to monitor and adjust the pre-cleaner and chaffer as well as sieve.
Fits all combines. Installs in about two hours.
Monitor sells for $399. Actuators for $599 apiece. Up to three actuators can be used with a single monitor.
