by Estes Concaves Estes Performance Concaves
John Deere's combine harvester is one of the most creative appliances for the agricultural sector. For eternity, farming has been known to be a very hard profession. Earlier, it used to consist of several manual work hours and labor. But after World War II, many changes were made to improve the lives of farmers. A combine harvester is one of these most important improvements.

Farmers can now carry out farming very effectively with the help of a combine harvester. To use it most effectively, there should be proper adjustments made. That's what will be explained in this John Deere combine Adjustment Guide.

Combine Adjustments

John Deere's combine harvesters are very popular in the market. Because of the reputed and legit brand name, many farmers want to get their hands on this product. However, the combine can become more effective when a combine concave is used with it. ESTES Performance Concave is a company that provides concaves that'll help you prevent rotor loss, grain damage and increase your profitability.

During the harvesting season, combine comes in use to harvest a variety of crops. Before starting to use this versatile machine, you'll have to make some settings and adjustments listed further.

Creating the Adjustments


The first thing in this guide is to know the crop and the field before starting the process of harvesting. Next, inspecting the crop stems and pods is necessary to identify how trouble-free it is to lay out.

Coming to the second step, check the heads together with the platforms of the combine. Doing this will help you determine if the crop is getting delivered to the feeder smoothly or whether there are any losses.

You should also check if the combine can make it through the season or not. Finally, check if the damage is 20% or 50%. All of this can be done by a thorough inspection.

Important Information Related to the Adjustment Settings

1. Effective threshing is ensured by two critical parameters: concave clearance and rotor speed. The concave clearance needs to be adjusted beginning with the broadest possible setting. After that, narrow the spacing so the grain will get threshed without damaging the group.

2. Starting speed of 400 rpm is recommended. Depending on the requirements, the speed can be adjusted too.

3. Exchanging the pinch point of the concave can be useful in certifying that the trash and grain are well dispersed on the auger deck.

4. When the grain comes from the pan, it's hit by a gust of air, and cleaning begins. The grain feed should be even for the air to flow evenly. The adjustments in the sieve should be correctly made together with the fan's speed.

5. There's a correct mixture of settings for each crop that makes sure the harvesting process is completed optimally. Note and follow these settings.

6. You must make only one setting at a time and write down its effects side by side. On this basis, additional settings can be made.

7. All the settings that need to be adjusted will be present in the user manual. Strictly follow all of them.
