Slow Down Kit For Deere Choppers
New for Deere combines (6620, 7720 and 8820) is a kit for slowing down the speed of the straw chopper when harvesting corn.
"Corn is extremely abrasive and hard on the chopper. Our add-on kit, which slows operating speed 46%, helps prevent costly wear and tear on the chopper hammers and pan housing," explains Dennis Stevens, manufacturer.
The kit includes a double sheave transfer pulley and belt that converts the regular chopper drive to "slow drive." Once in-stalled, it only takes 3 to 5 minutes to switch back and forth from regular "high speed" direct drive (for use in soybeans and small grains) to "slow speed" indirect drive (for use in corn).
The kit (adjustable mounting bracket, double sheave pulley, belt, bolts and shield) sells for $325.
