Intended Use

The RCI Recutter Screen is designed to allow for material resizing of earlage/snaplage and other forages, specifically for the 8000-Series SPFH. This product is the only approved recutter screen bundle for the 8000-Series SPFH and does not impact the warranty of the base machine.

Product Highlights

  • Three standard screen sizes are available as follows:
    o 13 mm
    o 19 mm
    o 35 mm
    o Other sizes may be introduced in the future based on customer demand.

    • Initial installation requires cutterhead assembly removal.
  • This product was designed with direct input from John Deere Engineering to ensure a quality-fit of components for precise operation compared to other after-market screens.

  • Crop flow is optimized with supplied bottom pan to ensure reliable operation.
