Description

Crop lifter with C-block for adjusting. May need RLCINST-8BF for blunt guards.

The 8B is a fully adjustable crop lifter (also known as pick up guard) used on all windrowers and combines with fixed, floating, or flexible cutterbars.  The 8B crop lifter is constructed of high strength ductile iron for durability and long service life.  Plated grade 8 fasteners are used for high strength and corrosion resistance. The 8B crop lifter is used for 3″ cut systems only.

This crop lifter is used extensively to harvest cereal crops (such as wheat, barley, oats, rye, and milo) on all windrowers, combines, floating and flexible cutterbars having sickle guards that stand level, such as Case, Cockshut, Deere, Ford Claas, (except Model 622), Gleaner, Hiniker, Hart Carter, Case IH 820-830 flexible bars, Lovebar, New Holland, New Idea, (except Model 717 flexible bar), Oliver, Versatile, White, and Year-A-Round.  Used on combines with automatic header controls such as IH Flexible Bar, Gleaner, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, White (made after 1982), Roper Wright, M&W, Kelley, Noble, and Vesco header controls.

The height adjustment of the crop lifter tip is provided by the six-way adjustment block. Sickle guards with a variety of geometries can be accommodated by the various holes in the adjustment block.  Different length sickle guards can also be accommodated by moving the block in it’s mounting slot.  The adjustment block is constructed of die formed steel and is yellow zinc plated for corrosion resistance.

RECOMMENDED CROP LIFTER SPACING
Sickle guard and cutterbar geometries can limit the available crop lifter spacing options.   The following are starting recommendations that can be altered as the application requires.
Down Grain, Peas
Space Crop Lifters 6″ to 9″ Apart
Swath or Windrow
Space Crop Lifters 6″ Apart
Rowed Beans and Milo
Space Crop Lifters 6″ to 9″ on each side of row.  Closer spacing will reduce loss by raising crops uniformly.
