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 d

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 are opperational, checking height and contour controls. On the grain table header, inspect sickle blades and guards, inspect teeth in augers and reel. On the corn head, inspect gathering chains and sprockets, adjust the 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
