Customer Question
I have new threshing...

I have new threshing elements in my JD S550. I still have corn to harvest. What should I do?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thanks

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just installed the new elements. They seem pretty ruff.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

Will these cause a lot of cracked and split corn?

I'm an independent contractor and I don't get paid until a rating has been made.

We can go back and forth as needed to help resolve the issue you are having. Follow ups are free after ratings, so rate in confidence!

I don’t normally work on these, but I can try to assist you where I can. Did you still need assistance with this? Or do you prefer to work with a tech that knows the equipment better?
