Adjustable Sieves

After years of development and extensive testing, in 1996 Harvest began marketing Harvest Plastic Adjustable Top and Bottom sieves.

Improved combine performance and increased life is what the adjustable plastic louvered top and bottom sieves are all about. They are designed to outlast and out perform the original top chaffer and bottom sieve by 2 to 1.

Longer lasting: The plastic louver is flexible. Rather than bend and twist as original metal louvers do they will return to their original shape.

The plastic louvers also have a large plastic bearing surface that is 4 times the diameter of the wires used on the original metal louver. As a result there is significantly less wear. If one of the plastic louvers should be damaged they are individually replaceable.

Improved performance: The plastic louvers have a specially designed cupped tail which directs the air more vertical, even when closed. More vertical air gives you better lift. The louver is also designed to allow the sieve to be set wider open. Combine performance improves and the amount of clean grain in the return is reduced, thus cutting down on cracked grain.

Indexed handle: Spring loaded, indexed handle ensures positive, repeatable sieve adjustment.

40% lighter: Because of the plastic louver, Harvest adjustable top and bottom sieves are about 40% lighter. Drive components will last longer.

Can’t rust: The plastic louvers will not rust or cease. They remain easy to adjust for life.

Self Cleaning: The plastic louvers have a smooth self cleaning profile which helps reduce buildup from sappy weeds and snow icing.
