Machinery Pete Interview at Commodity Classic

Machinery Pete stops by the Kondex booth at Commodity Classic to interview Jake and Andy about Kondex, KX7 concaves, and Straw Claw chopper blades.

Hard to Thresh Made Easy

When harvesting soybeans, Bryan was thankful to have KX7 concaves in his Case IH 8120 combine to better adapt to varying moisture and threshing conditions.

Adjusting Your KX7 Concaves

Bryan talks about the adjustments and harvest performance of the KX7 concaves in his Case IH 8120 combine. After using KX7 concaves, he was able to handle a broader variety of harvesting conditions without making frequent adjustments.

Who Is the Ideal KX7 User?

After using KX7 concaves in his Case IH 8120 combine, Bryan of Central Illinois comments on the ideal user for KX7 combines.

Improving Your Grain Sample

Harvesting corn and soybeans with a Case IH 8120 combine, Bryan saw significant improvements in grain quality and reducing rotor loss after switching to KX7 concaves.

Ramp Up Your Concave Performance

KX7 concaves from Kondex are purchased to solve a crop damming issue that this Illinois farmer was seeing with his Case IH 8120 combine.

Farm Every Acre to its Fullest Potential

Looking to increase capacity in his combine, Matt Schenk from Southern Indiana invested in KX7 concaves. As a result, he gained a much cleaner sample and far less grain loss than he'd experienced with traditional concaves.

Reduce Rotor Loss

Dean, a Massey Ferguson dealer, describes why he uses KX7 concaves. With less rotor loss than OEM concaves, Dean not only uses KX7 concaves himself, but also recommends them to customers.

A Winning Combination

After putting KX7 concaves to the test in Eastern Oregon (Palouse Region), even a doubting John Deere trained mechanic was impressed by the thresh quality and the system's durability.

Cleaner Sample, Better Design

Oregon custom harvester Bryan Jones describes the effectiveness of KX7 concaves in harvesting canola. He experienced less machine cleaning, and an overall better experience with the design of KX7 concaves.

Improving Efficiency

This custom harvester saw a 12% increase in efficiency using KX7 concaves as compared to his John Deere concaves. Harvesting in the Palouse region of Oregon, high wear was also a benefit.

Better Performance, Easier Installation

After a season of harvesting with KX7 concaves, Blake shares his intent to upgrade his entire custom harvesting operation to use KX7.

Tough in Wheat

A custom harvester from South Dakota shares his success with KX7 concaves when harvesting about 10,000 acres of wheat.

Success in Soybeans

Harvesting several thousand acres of soybeans, KX7 concaves were found to have 15-20% better capacity over traditional concaves in harder to thresh conditions.

Harvesting Excitement

Hear how this Louisiana farmer used KX7 concaves to improve his rice harvest.

A Better Concave

Hear directly from Emile, a Louisiana farmer, his general perspective of KX7 concaves and their benefits to his harvest.
