Increase your Yields with Kondex KX7 Concaves

Improved Productivity 
KX7 concaves improve your productivity by increasing your combine’s capacity. 
Our MaxThresh™ and MaxRound™ box inserts feature angled threshing and 
separation bars to meet the crop head on. Compared to traditional concaves, 
these features improve harvest capacity without compromising the grain sample
or rotor loss. 
Greater Customization  
No one knows your crops, fields, or environment quite like you, which is why
KX7 concaves allow you to customize the configuration of your threshing
cylinder with our MaxThresh™ and MaxRound™ box inserts. This flexibility
gives you control of your harvest, while our smaller width frames give you
twice as many customization options. 
Precision Product 
KX7 concaves are American made and robotically manufactured to exceed
OEM quality standards. Our welds are individually inspected by AWS
(American Welding Society) qualified welders, while visual and robotic testing
ensures product consistency and dimensional tolerances are met. By heat
treating KX7’s MaxThresh™ and MaxRound™ bars, you’ll also benefit from a l
onger lasting product. 
Extended Wear  
KX7 MaxThreshTM box inserts feature our proprietary TungstrongTM wear
coating that is metallurgically bonded to the threshing bars. Lab testing shows
these concave assemblies hold a three-time improvement in wear reduction
over traditional concaves.

Better Performance
Easier Installation
After a season of harvesting with KX7 concaves, Blake shares his intent to upgrade his entire custom harvesting operation to use KX7.
Success in Soybeans
Harvesting several thousand acres of soybeans, KX7 concaves were found to have 15-20% better capacity over traditional concaves in harder to thresh conditions.

12-Point Pre-Harvest Combine Maintenance Checklist

Fall harvest is around the corner. Before you hit the field, give your combine a once-over with this 12-point checklist.
  • Clean the machine of dust and dirt for better operation, and to help spot wear and potential problems.
  • Attach headers to combine and make sure they work, checking height and contour controls.
  • On the grain table header, inspect sickle blades and guards, and inspect teeth in augers and reel.
  • On the corn head, inspect gathering chains, and sprockets, and adjust width of stripper plates. Check and adjust drive chains. Remember: Row-unit gearboxes operate as mini-transmissions and need to be checked once a year. Refill with grease or oil depending on age and brand of corn head.
  • Check all belts for wear and replace as needed.
  • Check all chains and bearings for wear; replace chains that can’t be adjusted or tensioned correctly.
  • For axial combines, inspect rotor and concave, checking wires for damage and bars for wear.
  • Check unloading system auger. If edges are sharp like a razor blade, replace.
  • Perform service checks: engine oil, fuel filter, air cleaner, and hydraulic oil.
  • Grease all points per operator’s manual. If a fitting doesn’t take grease, stop and find out why.
  • Safety first … and last. Inspect all lights, flashers and reflectors for travel by road.
  • Call All States Ag Parts at 877-530-4430 for all your tractor and combine parts needs. We have the largest inventory of used combine parts in the country and have greatly expanded our new and rebuilt combine parts selection.

International 464 is Brought Back to Life After Barn Fire

All States Ag Parts is giving Jim B. a "high five" for his efforts in restoring this International 464 after a barn fire nearly destroyed the tractor. 

Jim did an incredible job of restoring this tractor. The All States Ag Parts crew at our Bridgeport, NE location are proud to have contributed most of the International 464 parts used to complete the restoration.

We've posted some before and after photos of this now beautiful tractor.

14-Point Planter Maintenance Checklist

Ensuring the proper seed depth, seed spacing and seed-to-soil contact is critical to the performance of your planter and ultimately the success of your harvest. If one kernel of corn out of 12 doesn’t emerge it could mean a loss of $12,000 on 500 acres.

We have re-published this 14-point checklist for planter maintenance with the permission of Professor Duiker at Penn State University.

14-Point Planter Maintenance Checklist

  1. Meters. Metering units have to work well or you’ll get frequent skips, doubles and triples. To guarantee optimal performance, take metering units apart every winter. Remove dirt and clean the hood with soapy water (no kerosene, diesel or oil should ever be used in metering units!). Replace cracked plastic covers. Replace broken fingers in a finger-pickup meter. Seed brushes need to be replaced when worn. If a groove has formed in the chromium house of the metering unit it is time to replace it. The belt (in finger pick-up meters) should be flexible, not have cracks in it, and should be clean. Clean with soapy water and let it dry before putting it back in. Put the metering unit back together. The rubber belt should be placed back in the right direction, or your meter will malfunction. You can lubricate with graphite (NO OIL or WD-40).  It is recommended to take your finger pick-up metering unit to a dealer to have it calibrated every year or every 300-400 acres. Take a bag of your own seed with you, and give him the correct speed at which you’ll be driving. If you have a vacuum or air meter, check for leaks and appropriate vacuum or air pressure.
  2. Planter unit. Accurate depth placement can be compromised if planter units are loose or wobbly. You should not be able to easily lift up your unit or move it sideways. Look across your planter units from the side. Are they all at the same height? If one unit is either up or down compared to the others, it needs work. A common problem is that some bolts are loose or additional bushings are needed. You also need to replace cracked or broken seed hoppers.
  3. Seed opener disks. Seed opener disks need to have a minimum diameter (check operator manual) or they will not place the seed at the appropriate depth. Seed opener disks also need to come together in the front (they should usually touch for 3”, but this may vary depending on planter). Stick two business cards between the openers and move them as close together as possible. If opener disks are worn too much you will get a “W” shaped seed slot instead of the desired “V” slot.
  4. Seed tubes. The end of seed tubes may wear to the extent that they curl inwards, catching seeds. There is often a hook halfway up that can easily break off. Seedtube guards need to have their minimum width and be fastened correctly or 
  5. damage to the seed tube is likely.
  6. Seed firmers. These help to press the seed down in the furrow, guaranteeing more accurate depth placement of the seeds. The tension can be adjusted with a bolt. If the seed firmers are worn too much they need to be replaced.
  7. Depth wheels. Depth wheels should run tight against disks. Change washers from in- to outside (or vice versa) of depth wheel if necessary. If this doesn’t resolve the problem, the depth wheel arm needs to be replaced.
  8. Coulters. Check the diameter of the coulters, and replace them if needed. You should adjust the depth of worn coulters that are still usable.
  9. Row cleaners. Check for wear. Adjust to compensate for wear or replace if worn too much.
  10. Closing wheels. Closing wheels need to have an intact spring, and need to be checked for damage or wear. Bearings cannot be wobbly or too tight. The bottoms of rubber or cast iron closing wheels need to be 1.5”-2” apart. The closing wheel arm cannot have too much play or bushings or the entire arm may need replaced.
  11. Alignment of coulters, opener disks, and closing wheels. Take a rope and pull it straight from the front coulter to the closing wheels. The firming wheels, seed openers, and coulters should all be in line. Closing wheels should not run on top of the seed furrow.
  12. Insecticide boxes. The insecticide boxes should have no holes or cracks. Tubes should be blown out with air as well as the slot on bottom of meter.
  13. Fertilizer unit. Fertilizer opener disks should have a minimum diameter (check manual). The bearings should not be wobbly or too tight. Hang a bucket below the tube of the unit, and do a test run of 175 feet in the field. Weigh the fertilizer in the bucket, multiply by 100, and you have the fertilizer you’ll put on in pounds per acre (at 30” row spacing). Adjust as needed.
  14.  Chains and sprocketsCheck all chains and their sprockets. If they are worn too much they need to be replaced. They need to have the appropriate tension and should be greased regularly.
