I have a question regarding our Hiniker shredder. We are running the 6 row , 5610 model. Having issues with stalk backing up in the chamber before they hit the auger, making it impossible to keep the auger full and making a full windrow. It is starting to leave a lot of stalk on the ground instead of picking it up. This has caused us to have to have to hop out of the tractor multiple times to unplug the chamber.

Any ideas of what might cause this? Auger is in good shape. We have suspected moisture might be the problem. Seems like during the hotter parts of the day we never get backed up, once evening hits, clogging starts.

I've seen those Hinikers windrow some pretty tough stalks. Are your knives getting worn?

They make a good shredder. We talked to Hiniker and they said to remove the plate that is screwed in just behind the auger. They called it a stripper bar. We removed that and it opened up about another inch of space for the stalks to flow through. Seems to be working fine now.
