Return Elevator MonitorReturn Elevator Monitor
With the return grain elevator monitor from Kuchar Combine Performance, Carlinville, Ill., you can see at a glance exactly what amount of grain is being handled by your return elevator. If there's too much, you can quickly adjust the sieve or chaffer to pre-vent plug-ups. A sensitivity gauge in the monitor allows you to set it for different crops, says George Kuchar, inventor.
The system consists of an electronic sensor that mounts at the top of the return grain elevator and measures the amount of grain coming over the elevator. It's wired into a color-coded analogue needle gauge inside the cab.
Fits all combines. Installs in about two hours.
Sells for $399.
