  • Surprised use of carborundum cut-off wheels. Low speed steel blade and chop-saw, must faster, Cooler temps, minimal sparks, fire hazard. Cost effective, time saver changing blades, economical investment. Working smarter

  • Legg arms , quit using nylon for plastic bushings . Trust me . I'm a tool and die maker , in the auto industry . We got away from nylon , and went to Delrin . It's much tougher and lasts longer . It's more expensive, but we find it much cheaper in in down time .

  • 1/4 fenders are junk, especially with hopper bottoms. Put full or even half fenders on your trucks and that will stop the rocks hitting the back of the cab.

  • Hey Nicki! When I was farming in Dawson County, I too repaired the sickle guards and got a double-life (or more!) from them! I'd put a sickle section between the guard and the piece to be welded on for proper spacing. I thought I was the only one who did stuff like this! I am in hallowed company for sure Nick. This is how farmers in Montana do it! HEY! Good luck with the prep work, take care and be safe this harvest season Nick.

  • if your worried about saving 20 dollars on a old guard you should be running a different combine.. the new claas machines would pay for themselves in fuel and grain losses in one year over these machines

    • I would greatly differ. Our losses are the same as new and fuel is same or less.

  • Your guards, take and grind the edges of those you welded plates to. The guards cut the crop, the sickles draw the crop into the guards for cutting. Not as big of a deal on dead cereal crops, but huge on live crops such as green grass and alfalfa.

  • the tires you took off the header, were they used before they went on in the first place? or were they brand new to start with? replacing them with good used instead of new would have been cheaper

  • Great video. Maybe worth checking the end guards as should have around 3 on each end that are different to others in gap an design to allow cutter bar to move with knife drive wrong guards cause the cutter bar to stress an break cause it can jam when hit something hard instead on slipping knife drive
