Safety Practices
Transport Machine Safely
•
Comply with state and local laws.
•
Be familiar with tractor operations and
follow all safety instructions in the tractor’s
manual.
20 MPH when weight is less than or
equal to the weight of the tractor
•
Before moving away, always check
immediate vicinity (e.g., for children).
10 MPH when weight is more than
weight of the tractor
•
NEVER exceed a maximum speed of 20
MPH.
•
NEVER tow a load more than double the
weight of the tractor!
•
Always adapt ground speed to road or
field conditions, making sure you have
adequate control of steering and stopping.
•
Sudden braking can cause a towed load
to swerve and upset. Reduce speed if
towed load is not equipped with brakes.
•
Avoid sharp turns, holes, ditches, and
obstructions which may cause the tractor
to tip, particularly on hillsides.
•
Use following tow load weight ratios as
guidelines:
Avoid Electrical Power Lines
Use a Safety Chain
•
•
Use a safety chain to help control
machinery if it separates from the tractor
drawbar.
•
Use a chain with strength rating equal to
greater than the gross weight of the
towed machine.
•
Attach the chain to the tractor drawbar
support, allowing only enough slack in
the chain for turning.
•
Do NOT use a safety chain for towing.
•
Make sure all components are secured in
the proper position before transporting
machine (for example: basket bin lip
extension, mower deck, off-loading
conveyor, etc.).
AVOID all lines, particularly low-hanging
electrical cables, during transport.
DANGER
Contact with electrical lines will cause the
operator to suffer severe electrical shock
or possibly death.

a thorough pre-delivery inspection is
important, as items may have loosened
during shipping.
Chapter 3, Operation, contains a “Daily
Checklist.” It is important that you perform
these checks each day you intend to use
your combine. These checks are intended to
help you detect problems early, reduce
downtime, and extend the life of your
combine.

Attaching and Checking
Driveline
IMPORTANT! Your AMADAS 2110 has
been equipped with a constant velocity
PTO driveline. Because of the double
Cardan Joint incorporated into this shaft,
you can expect a constant output shaft
speed with minimal vibration. The shaft
speed will remain constant with minimum
vibration even in a tight turning radius.
Please read the section on lubrication in
Chapter 7, Maintenance, thoroughly as
the PTO drive shaft has special
requirements.
3. Attach the driveline to the combine and
tractor PTO. 1 3/8” 21 spline and 1 ¾” 20
spline ends are available.
DANGER
All drive shields and guards must be in
place when the combine is in operation.
Death or serious personal injury will
result from entanglement.
CAUTION
Failure to check driveline length and
clearance can cause damage to
combine and tractor.
1. Ensure that the tractor draw bar is set
such that the center of the hitch ball is
approximately 3 ½” below the centerline
of the tractor PTO output shaft. Extend
the tractor draw bar such that the center
of the hitch ball is approximately 20” from
the end of the tractor PTO output shaft
(sketch). If your combine is equipped
with a pin type hitch, use the same 20”
dimension to center the tractor clevis pin.
2. If equipped with a side shift tongue, shift
the tongue to the operating position (left

CAUTION
Never exceed the observed limits of
turning or severe damage to the
combine and/or tractor will occur,
whether the PTO is engaged or
disengaged.
NOTE! If the driveline length is more
than 72 inches, check the drawbar setting
and move the drawbar out.
5. Start the tractor engine and raise the
pickup header to its highest position.
6. After proper safety measures are taken
(see Chapter 1, Safety), slowly turn the
tractor. Observe when the telescoping
driveline is close to its closed position or
when the tractor tire is close to the
combine tongue. This is the minimum
turning radius in that direction.
CAUTION
Do NOT allow the tractor tire to touch
the tongue, or the universal driveline to
reach its closed (bottomed out) position
during operation. Do NOT allow the
constant velocity joint to exceed 80
degrees.
Severe damage to the
driveline, tractor, or combine will occur.
NOTE! In most cases, the tractor will turn
until the tire is very close to the combine
tongue, without the telescoping shaft
bottoming out. If this is not possible with
your tractor, do NOT exceed the
observed limits or severe damage to the
combine and tractor will occur, whether

Unloading Conveyor
2110 PT Peanut Combine
Before Using the
Conveyor
A combine equipped with the Off-load
Conveying System (OCS) option comes with
an unloading conveyor.
The conveyor
operates as follows:
•
•
The conveyor is controlled from two tractor
remotes, one to swing the conveyor and
one to power it.
A container is placed underneath the
conveyor whenever it is turned on. Note
that running the conveyor without a
container will cause you to dump product
on the ground.
DANGER
•
NEVER drive on roads with the
conveyor extended. Always make sure
the conveyor is in stowed position on
the conveyor rest before taking it on a
road.
•
Be aware of the length of the conveyor
when traveling. Even when in the
stored position, the conveyor extends
several feet past the rear of the
combine and presents a substantial
hazard for hitting obstructions.
•
Take particular care driving around
power lines. Hitting a power line can
cause significant shock or even death
for the combine operator.
•
NEVER stand or sit on the conveyor
when it is in motion.
•
NEVER stick your hand or any body
part into any moving part of the
conveyor.
Conveyor Safety
It is important to remember the following safety
items when your combine is equipped with the
OCS option:
•
Always keep in mind the length of the
conveyor and how far out it extends, even
when in the stored position.
•
Be careful when backing the combine, as
the conveyor extends several feet past the
rear of the combine.
•
When not using the conveyor, retract it into
its stowed position.
Make sure the
conveyor is in place on the conveyor rest.
•

Always make sure the conveyor is in the
stowed position when you drive it on a
road.

Conveyor Tracking
Check conveyor tracking by having the
operator engage the tractor remotes. Observe
the tracking of the belt at both the head and
pulley. The conveyor belt should be running
centered to pulleys. A deviation of +/- 3/4" is
the allowable limit.
To adjust the tracking:
1. Use the tracking rod located at the lower,
end of the conveyor. You may have to
swing the conveyor out for easier access.
3. If the adjustment is not enough to correct,
it may be necessary to use the tension
rods at the upper end of the conveyor.
WARNING
Use a ladder or other safe means to access
the tension bolts. NEVER use the conveyor
as a means of access. NEVER make
adjustments to the tension rods with the
conveyor operating.

Overview
The AMADAS 2110 combine performs
efficiently over a wide range of peanut
varieties and windrow conditions with few
changes in operating controls. Once the
controls and adjustments are set for average
conditions, adjusting the ground and PTO
speed is usually adequate to ensure efficient
performance (when harvesting peanuts of
similar varieties under similar conditions).
To improve your combine’s performance, fine
tune:
•
The picking operation by adjusting the
retention board, overhead teeth, combine
input speed, or the concave teeth.
•
The cleaning operation by adjusting the
cleaning air and tail board.
IMPORTANT! Make only one adjustment
at a time between performance checks.
This will allow you to determine which
adjustment is actually improving the
combine’s performance.
CAUTION
NEVER make adjustments to the
harvesting controls while the combine is
running. Serious personal injury could
result.
Changing the PTO speed will also affect
picking and cleaning operations, and can be
used to further fine tune these operations.

adjustments as follows:
•
If the vines are brittle, move the control
handle toward disengage for less
aggressive action. This will help avoid
tearing the vines apart excessively, which
makes separation more difficult.
•
In “tough” conditions, or to remove very
small peanuts from bunch type vines
clustered around the tap root, move the

•
If you notice that an excessive number of
peanuts are not being separated from the
vines or a tough, wrapping condition
develops, adjust the handle toward the
engaged position in 1” increments
between checks.
•
We recommend adjusting the forward
overhead teeth handle first, and then
adjust the rear handle. Engaging the

Controls and Adjustments
Tailboard Adjustment
The tail board affects the flow of material
from the stemmer bottom out the back of the
combine. Raising the tail board makes it
harder to blow material out of the stemmer
bottom, while lowering the tail board makes it
easier.
•
Raise the tail board in wet or heavy vines
where more cleaning air is needed.
This allows the use of more cleaning air
by making it more difficult to blow good
peanuts out of the stemmer bottom.
Raising the tail board increases agitation
of the material load on the disc separator
to aid in separation.
•
Note that raising the tail board in fields
where heavy foreign material exists
(stones, melons, wood, etc.) increases
the chances for it to get into the bin.
•
Lower the tail board in very dry
conditions. If dry, brittle vines are getting
shredded up into small sticks that can
penetrate the disc separator openings,
lower the tail board to make it easier to
blow this light, small trash out of the
stemmer bottom.
Under normal conditions, set the tail board in
the half-raised position (middle of the
adjustment slots). Usually, the tail board is
adjusted only if the cleaning air or other
adjustments do not produce the desired
response. If adjustments are needed, make
them as follows:
•
Loosen the seven ¼” fasteners and
evenly raise or lower the tail board across
the width of the machine.

Elevator Air Control
The elevator air control is normally set so
that peanuts are conveyed about ¾ of the

If peanuts are very light or fragile, lower
the air.
•
If the peanuts are very dirty or high yield,
raise the air.
•
Lower the setting if the LSKs or empty
hulls in the bin show excessive shelling
within the conveyor system.
•
Be aware that too low a setting can
quickly stop up the elevator air system.
NOTE! On a new machine, or one that
has been sitting idle, some LSKs may be
seen in the bin due to roughness in the
air ducts. Once the air ducts smooth
out, the number of LSKs should
decrease.

header is too slow, it will push the vines
along before picking them up, causing
peanuts to fall off the vines. If operated
too fast, the vines will fall apart before
entering the combine, and peanut loss
will occur. Dry vines typically require
higher pick up speeds than green vines.
WARNING
Hot oil can cause severe burns. Do NOT

Remote Auger Reverse
Remote reversing auger and header speed
control are standard features built into the
hydraulics package on the AMADAS 2110.
They function as follows:
•
IMPORTANT!
Read all hydraulics
safety information in Chapter 1, Safety,
before using hydraulics.
•
The remote auger reverse system
consists of a hydraulic reversing valve
and a second hydraulic motor.
•
The valve is installed between the
hydraulic pump system and hydraulic
motors that drive the auger and pickup.
•
When the remote auger reverse is
engaged, the pickup stops and the
header auger reverses, allowing material
jamming the auger to be discharged over
the pickup and onto the ground.
•
56
There is a hydraulic pressure gauge at
the valve block to indicate system
pressure. Normally, the system operates
in the 1100 PSI range while harvesting.
8/19/14
As the header begins to stall (jam), the
pressure should reach 2700 PSI. If the
header is stalling and the pressure gauge
isn’t reaching 2700 PSI, there could be a
problem with the tractor’s hydraulic
system (or the system relief valve on the
optional combine hydraulics system).
WARNING
NEVER remove material from the
header/auger while the tractor engine
and combine are running. Shut off the
tractor before unclogging any part of the
combine.
An optional header/auger

PTO Speed Adjustment
Proper PTO speed is essential to efficient
operation. PTO speed functions as follows:
•
•
•
A combine speed monitor, which
monitors combine speed from the tractor
cab, is included and should be mounted
•
in the tractor.
The combine speed monitor measures
combine speed as a percentage of
machine design speed.
Consistent combine speed is important
for the best harvesting performance. If
the combine speed fluctuates, check the
combine drive belts and tractor PTO
system for the source of problem.
A magnetic pickup assembly senses
combine speed. This pickup reads off of
one of the disc separator drive sprockets,
and should be adjusted to have a
clearance
of
approximately
1/16”
between sprocket tooth and pickup.
Ensure that the sprocket never actually
contacts the pickup, as the pickup may
be damaged and rendered inoperable.

The AMADAS 2110 is designed to
operate with 790 PTO RPM input, so the

•
For very dry peanuts, reduce the
combine speed to below 100% to aid in
performance.
•
For tough or wet conditions, raise the
combine speed over 100% to increase
aggressiveness and aid in performance.
The combine speed monitor is composed
of a digital speed indicator which resides
in a control box and attaches to the •
tractor fender using a Velcro strip.
NOTE! When you route the cable to the

Maintenance of the combine speed
monitor is minimal. The only item that
may need replacing is the battery. The
battery is located in the back of the digital

at the beginning of each season.
The normal operational range of the
combine is 90% to 110% of the design

The header auger is manually height
adjustable. It can be raised or lowered to
help feeding in varied crop conditions. The
header auger adjustment functions as
follows:
•
If the header stalls often (but the
hydraulic system is operating properly),
the header auger may need to be raised
for additional crop clearance.
•
When the machine is new, it may be
desirable to raise the auger until the finish
of the auger has become polished for
less resistance moving the crop.
•
Under normal conditions, the header
auger is run at the halfway setting or
lower for more efficient conveyance of
crop and less rolling of vine material.

•
The auger height is adjusted by
loosening the four outer bolts holding the
bearing mount plate and then turning the
top mounted adjuster screw to raise or
lower the auger.

Optional Dual Speed
Cylinder Drives
The dual speed cylinder drives allow efficient
operation in a wider range of conditions by
allowing the operator to vary greatly the
combine’s cylinder speeds as follows.
•
By switching the main drive chain from
the larger high speed drive sprocket to
the smaller low speed sprocket, cylinder
speed can be significantly reduced for
gentler threshing action.
•
Typically, the high speed cylinder drive
setting is used in normal to tough
conditions for more aggressive threshing
action.
•
The low speed cylinder drive setting is
used in very dry or brittle conditions to
handle the crop more gently, threshing
with less damage and leaving the vine
material in larger pieces for better
separation. The low speed cylinder drive
setting results in around a 23% reduction
in cylinder speed. This is a substantial
speed reduction that can increase
possible torque loads, so the low speed
setting should never be used in green or
tough conditions.
•
Shut the tractor off before changing the
dual speed cylinder drive settings, and
always remember to tighten thoroughly
all of the accompanying idlers.

Post Season
Maintenance
To extend the life of your combine, take the
time to prepare it properly for the long nonuse period.
Follow these storage
suggestions at the end of each season.
NOTE! Use protective eye gear. Do
NOT use high-pressure water or air
directly on the bearing seals, as
contaminant or moisture penetration may
occur, which can dramatically shorten
part life.
3. If possible, repaint worn and scratched
parts, and coat the internal parts of the
combine with light oil or another rust
inhibitor.
Open shields
4. Release tension on all belts.
5. Remove and clean all chains. Store in a
container of oil or oil/diesel mix, if
possible. If not, reinstall but do not
tension.
6. Grease all fittings and the driveline.
7. Store the combine under shelter.
Open shields
8. Collapse all hydraulic cylinders
prevent them from rusting or pitting.
to
NOTE! If the combine must be stored
outside, cover the optional hydraulic tank
and breather cap to prevent water from
entering the tank.
1. Clean the combine thoroughly to remove
all dirt and moisture-holding materials.
2. Flush out the slots below the disc
separator shafts with an air hose or
blower to remove all trash and dirt. If dirt
is packed tightly, it can be loosened with
prodding.
