Hurricane Chaff Spreader
The Hurricane Chaff spreader requires less than 2 hp. to operate and doesn't affect the performance or capacity of the combine, according to Clarke. On conventional combines it's powered off one end of the rear straw walker crankshaft. On rotaries, it's powered by the rear beater shaft. On most combines it can be easily installed with no modifications to the combine other than a couple drilled holes.
The chaff spreader, equipped with a pair of rotating paddles, throws chaff out to either side of the combine in a 25-ft. swath. Once installed, you can still easily reach the sieve adjustment. You can still windrow straw with the spreader attached and it'll quickly swing down out of the way to let you get at the rear of the combine for repairs.
The Hurricane Spreader is priced from $815 to $975 for most combine models, although the Gleaner N model sells for $1,200.
