The Flexxifinger® Pulse Crop Lifter™ was originally designed for straight combining in desiccated crops like peas, lentils and edible beans where cutting close to the ground is required. The lifter rail hugs the guard and the replaceable nylon finger is held in an adjustable receptor, allowing the combine operator to fine-tune the location of the lifter’s forward lifting point for his specific conditions. The finger extends beyond the finger receptor and becomes a tail that guides the plant material over the knife.
Crop type: peas, lentils, chickpeas, black beans, pinto beans, soy beans, white beans
Generally, the recommended spacing is one lifter per foot across the header. Harvesting some row or bedded crops, where lifters mounted to the row or a combination of different Flexxifinger® lifters to maximize recovery have proven beneficial.
The 33048 nylon finger (2.75”/70mm) is recommended when cutting within 1.25” (30mm) of the ground. The 33050 nylon finger (4.75”/120mm) is recommended when cutting within 1.5” to 2.5” (30-60mm) of the ground. Please contact us to assist with determining the best choice for your crop.
