RLP in Co: He is cleaning the seed to a higher standard than you do to grain sold in the general market. It could be cracked or damaged kernels, untrashed hulls, weed seeds, dirt, or anything that is not the targeted seed. This raised the germination rate and lowers the chances of seeding Weeds along with your crop.

The biggest thing the seed cleaners do is remove smaller things out of the seed. Most combines usually do this mainly by air flow. So if you get a small seed that is heavy it will end up in the grain tank along with the harvested crop.

TEE the top screen looks like it is upside down in your picture.
We have a 32 that we use some and have considered how to set it up to use in a more efficient way. The old
shed it is in has a bin for about 200 bu over it with an old roller feeder from a combine to keep it from plugging from chaff,straws and such. Dad and grandpa put a bagger attachment on the front of it for bagging clover seed many years ago then had a littler MM combine elevator to lift it to the spout for the bagger. When not in use it would just spill into a pit to another elevator leg to put grain in bins overhead. We need to be able to clean faster for loading out on trucks or wagons when combining. This used to keep up with an old Gleaner E.

I have this exact machine in my barn. We use it a lot when I was a kid. Set up with an electric motor.

Just noticed, my 2B has a clean grain elevator on it, so it may be a later or improved model. Maybe the elevator was an option.

not sure.

Thanks for that answer. Would not be good to plant weed seeds along with your crop.

Monsatan put these out of business when roundup came out. Clarence Thomas's first vote on the supreme court, was to allow Monsatan to patent seed even though he had worked for them.

Maybe BM(Bayer and Monsatan) will let your plant your own roundup beans. If the gene that they put in beans prevents this, you will just take an asprin.

Here is an old video I made kinda explaining how the clipper 2B works.

I still use it with a couple modifications. Got a reversible motor and got rid of the flat & twisted belts. Still would like to get rid of the clean grain elevator & replace it with an small auger.
