Subject: Combine Settings


I've read in the past where some of you referred to a book written about combine settings for
maximum performance. Some of the settings were somewhat against owners manuel advice and
they were very combine specific. What was the book and how may I obtain one and is the
advice credible?

Ray Stueckle's Combine Harvesting Books

http://rhmachine.com/publication.html

guy died about 15 years ago

in his talk the quote was made to make a combine work right

you need a few inches of "fire" from the exhaust pipe

full combine works better than a 1/2 full

I think his son was still making copies

bought one in 1980 can't think of his name have to go to combine and look

McLeod County Minnesota
Are you referring to Ray Stuekle (sp)? I bought his book shortly after getting my first combine and was very impressed with it. In recent years I have relied on the Gleaner page of harvesting.com for advice on making my machine run like a champ. A couple of guys on the Gleaner page really know their combines and they aren’t afraid to share their knowledge with the rest of us.

I see you found Ray’s name since I first read your post. He was also involved with modifying cylinders and rotors for St John’s Welding if I remember correctly.
