I could see that the lentils were shelling out as they were climbing those longer lifters on the way to the combine knife, so I decided to take them off. The only wrenches I had with me were an open end and a box end wrench, so it took me quite a while - about 2.5 hours - to remove them.Out there in that heat, I kept thinking that there had to be a better way."
"As a farmer growing peas and lentils, I could not find a crop lifter on the market that would work to my satisfaction in pulse crops. I wanted a crop lifter that was:
Those were the principles from which the lifter was built."
