I got some metal flashing that's 18 inches tall and wrapped it all the way around the chopper last fall, worked good.

IF you make the boxes out of tin that is slick and tall it might help. they go up wood like it aint even there!lol!

Don’t think those will slow them down much. Wrap the tires in tin maybe. Best way is to clean it good so they have no food to eat. Other than that most of the tricks are feel good measures.

I wonder if filling them with moth balls would help?

Or cats!

Definitely. Took me forever to get a couple that would stick around. My dog didn’t like them. Haven’t really worried about mice for a while now. We had plenty before.

In our damp moist climate we always run oil soaked straw through several times. Definitely helped the inside stay shiny and I don't remember  too many mouse problems.

But then late 70s conventional combines didn't have many electrics to chew.

They use them in their nest in our combine every time I put them in there lol. We got lots of cats and really no mouse problem, except in the combine. I cannot keep them out of the cab roof

Hanging the combine from the ceiling should help also😁

You'll need precautions.  I was hanging grass seed from the roof C-beams of a steel shed and had to make mouse baffle plates for them.
