Two-Way Combine Chaff SpreaderDuWayne and George Miller, Isabel, S. Dak., built a two-way chaff spreader for their "G" Gleaner combine that they say worked great last season.
The spreader consists of a pair of 12-in. 3-bladed fans which blow the chaff out the sides of the combine. The fans are belt-driven from the straw chopper and run around 2,000 rpm's.
"We like it because of its simplicity, low cost and ease of access to the sieves," says DuWayne. "It does an excellent job of blowing chaff evenly out either side and it's reliable and efficient."
