Diverter Sucks Dust From Deere Combines
"Conventional combines have more problems with dust than rotary combines. That's why we came up with this feederhouse dust diverter for Deere combines," says W.A. Johnson, inventor and manufacturer about his new hydraulic-powered add-on attachment that requires no permanent modification to install.
The diverter mounts directly over the feederhouse door. A 12-in. dia. fan on one end sucks dust off the return chain and flows it out to. the back of the combine through a 12-in. dia flexible tube. The fan is powered by reel hydraulics and doesn't affect operation of the reel. When the reel is not in use, the system operates by connecting hydraulics directly to the diverter.
"The vision of the operator improves tremendously, especially under extremely dusty conditions. The diverter virtually eliminates problems with dirty windshields, radiators, cab and engine filters, reducing overall maintenance on the machine."
Sells for $1,350.
