1020 poly floor sheets


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

Been reading and getting, Soo much Old school combine info here!

Want to replace my floor sheets on the 1020 before harvest.

Any members that have run poly sheets, please give your opinions.

Looking at poly skid and may Wes.

May Wes looks like it would flow beans better, but would pick up rocks real easy.

Poly tech has the rock bump, same as the IH.

May Wes has a lot more pieces and looks to be more time consuming to install.

Also want to put in the cross auger trough poly liner.

Any members that have run these?

Good or bad, waste of money?

Thanks

Ted

Poly floor came on my 30 ft 1020, started with it. after fighting it a couple days ordered new metal panels from Shoup. Don't recall all details as that was in 2000 but do remember the steel attachment was way  simpler and quick. Think the poly was May Wes iirc

  Welcome to  "Red Power",  You obviously joined this site for the knowledge,  You also will enjoy the "Different" personality's, and a tremendous amount of "Humor"!!

 

We had a poly floor on our 1020 head, (recently sold the head) a few rocks can scare that plastic and the beans will bunch, feeding into the fingers on the auger.

But our "Poly floor" wasn't new,  had been exposed to the sunshine for many years,  setting on a dealers lot before we purchased it.

We replaced our 1020 floor with steel,   purchased from "Shoup",  The head worked like new.

My 2 cents,   Jim Droscha

We live in Charlotte, Michigan,  3 miles from "Janson" farm equipment.  Our IH Dealer

Thanks Jim

Yes, have learned most all about the 1440 at RPM.

Not to many old AF machines around here.

Known Wade since I was a little kid, Alderman's are real good people!

Got rid of the 6600 and never looked back.

Getting ready and may just leave the steel in and buff up the steel.

Seems like the trough poly liner under the cross auger would really work?

Flighting on auger is razor sharp and that makes a world of difference!

Try it, rounded over edge, doesn't help the poor feeding reputation that the 1020 always gets.

Cliff took some searching and found the company in Ontario that sells the stainless steel kit.

Delta Power equipment, previously Vincent Power Equipment.

Talked to Wayne, sent me a email of the instructions.

Someone put a lot of time in too get it right.

Would post pictures, but their well protected and won't let me copy so I can't show them here yet.

Any one have this stainless kit, sure be great to hear good or bad?

Sheets fit below flex bar, so there's no rock bubble on the front like the stock steel sheets!!

Our 1640 originated from Vincent's once upon a time.  Still has dealer decals on one side.  Odd to hear people still mention them.
