The Chaff spreader attaches easily and conveniently to the rear axle frame of a combine beneath the shoe discharge. A set of adjustable brackets forms a universal mounting system that allows the spreader to be attached to any combine. An anchor pin in the frame allows the spreader to swing out for easy access to the sieves.
The spreader comes in two models. A single 36” rotor or double 24” rotors. As the chaff comes off the shoe, it falls on the disc(s), where it is thrown out each side and spread over the field. Shields are positioned to keep the chaff from spreading in the wrong direction. One shield mounts on the main frame in front of the rotor, to keep the chaff from blowing to the front. The second shield mounts on the rear of the rotor, also on the frame which allows the chaff to be thrown out each side to give a more even spread.
The Chaff Spreader‘s drive consists of a hydraulic motor(s), powered by the combine’s hydraulic system. A flow control adjusts the speed of the rotors and the pattern of the spread.
