"In my opinion, the Flexxifinger™ QD™ Pulse Crop Lifter is one of the best lifters out on the market today for its simplicity of use. It's easy to adjust and easy to take off when you have to."
"The way they come off and on is just amazing, because you just lift this little spring and slide it off. So if you get in a situation where the vines get tough - early in the evening or something like that - you can take them off, literally in minutes. Everyone says that it can be done in minutes, but this is a minute thing. It's definitely quite an invention. As far as pulse crops go, the best lifter out there, for a flex header, for sure."
"In the fall of 2009 I used the Flexxifinger™ HD™ Lifters in spring wheat (AC Kane) and oats at 12 inch spacing. The wheat crop prior to going down was 110cm (43 inches) tall and after falling over about 60% of the crop was 4-6 inches off the ground. When I harvested this crop it yielded 1.6 metric tonne/acre (58 bushels/acre) with a moisture content of 14%. I feel the lifters allowed me to harvest an additional 10-15% of the crop.
"We used the Flexxifinger™ Pulse crop lifter on a 625 John Deere hydra flex head. We had tried other lifters and were dissatisfied with them because they would break off and run through the combine. They would not flex well when cutting crops that were low to the ground. With your Flexxifinger™ lifter we cut 200 acres of barley and 500 acres of wheat this past year. Flexxifinger™ lifters were easy to install and the bolts (and QD™ nut) could be left on instead of having to be removed when we cut soybeans. We did not even break one lifter and the adjustment was nice for different ground and crop conditions. We left hardly any crop in the field. This is a great product and we are very pleased with the results. This product saved us a lot of headaches and money."
"The fact that they are really gentle on the crop and are mounted fairly close to the cutter bar allows the product to come up and directly into the combine without being thrashed out, opposed to the other lifters, which are a foot and a half long, with more chance of shelling and more chance of crop loss. I know that, without the Flexxifinger™ lifters on, I couldn't get the material that I picked up. I don't know of any other lifter that would have done any better - or as well of - a job. Without those lifters on, I'd have been driving over a lot of the crop."
"We had a fairly decent to really good pea crop, and, of course, with that, they tend to fall over and lay down. We had the opportunity to try this product and found that it worked very well. On our 973 rigid header, there was a vast improvement with the lifters on, being able to get those downed peas that were flat on the ground. I suppose, thinking back, it would probably be four to seven or eight bushels to the acre increase with the lifters on. If we wouldn't have had them, those peas would have been left in the field and not in the bin, so it was a very good thing. We were very impressed. These days you have to get every bushel off the ground you can - in the combine and in the bin. Plus, installing and removing the crop lifter is very minimal. I didn't really time ourselves, but I'm sure if you could have somebody in the cab, safety in mind, unloading into a grain truck, easily by time your bin was empty you could have installed your crop lifters on a 36 foot header. Easily, installed or removed off the header in that amount of time, so that's basically under three minutes."
