Having trouble getting my 33 picker to take corn even riding hand clutch and creaping. Picker is not worn out . Deck plates are centered over snapping rolls. Tried multiple PTO speeds . Ran picker picked all the way up and all the way down ... no change . The snapping rolls just won't pull the stalks through ! Any ideas?

I remember dad wrapping the snapping rolls with chicken wire. to help the rolls grip the corn. It seemed pretty dangerous watching him feed the wire around the moving rolls.

It is possible that the corn stalks are thinner and closer spaced than that machine was designed for, if it was planted using modern methods. I had a lot of trouble harvesting corn two years ago, so last year I cut the population back and it helped. I think the stalks feed better if they are not so close together in the row, and they grow just a little bigger, making them easier for the rolls to grab.

What you can try is to build up the ridges on the snapping rolls with a few strategically placed weld beads, to make them a little more aggressive.

Back in the day, there were some metal clips to be had that slipped into place to grab the stalks...maybe stuck into some rubber plugs in the rolls? I can"t imagine running the picker to apply chicken wire!!!!
