Book Tells How To Adjust TR Combines"Some of my recommendations are opposite of what the Owner's Manual tells you," says Harry Weeks, Plain City, Ohio, farmer-inventor who's written a 21 page book covering his tips for adjusting New Holland TR series rotary combines.
The book discusses rotor speed settings, concave settings, modifying fans, updating the clean grain elevator and respacing deflectors.
"On all TR's in all conditions, the concaves must be square to the rotor. . . Part of the thumping that owners complain about comes from the concaves being set in a wedge shape, with the inside being down and the outside, next to the doors, being up," says Weeks in his discussion of concave settings.
The book sells for $13.50.
