It is looking like the soybean harvest this fall will be challenging with the size of the crop and the amount of weeds. Just as a reminder to prevent unwanted down time, here are some basic combine settings for soybeans.
-Make sure feed accelerator is in high (belt in groove closest to combine)
-Rotor in high side (550 – 650 rpm)
-Straw chopper set to high
-Feeder house drum in the low position
-Feeder house drive chain in high for drilled or heavy tall beans
