Moistener Pads/Columns for John Deere
Premium Aftermarket Replacement Parts
Moistener pads should be checked frequently for wear, so you don’t experience any surprises during a harvesting operation. When excessive wear is detected on your pads, you can get by until new pads can be ordered, simply by adjusting your moistener columns vertically. If moistener pads are situated too low, premature wear will develop, and if the pads are situated too high poor cleaning will be the likely result. This is because there won’t be enough fluid on the spindles, and there won’t be adequate scrubbing by the moistener pads.
To have your moistener pads and moistener columns in ideal position, the moistener columns should be adjusted so that all fins of each of the moistener pads just barely touch the spindles. This means that as the spindle just begins to pass under the fins of your moistener pads, all those fins should flex in a noticeable manner.
When you install new moistener pads, the fins which are situated closest to the dust collar may flex a bit more than the fins which are closer to the spindle tip. In any case, your moistener pads and columns are intended to work together, so when you need one or the other, it’s generally best to order both of them at once, so you can be sure that they are at the same level of wear, and will continue to work well together.
As with many of our products we offer, here at Certi-Pik, USA we value our customers’ concerns, and continually try to improve the products used in the industry. In 2005 we strengthened John Deere’s Pro moistener column, which ultimately resolved the problem of moistener column failure due to the column bending. Acute consideration was taken with the top section to ensure the column maintained flexibility while installing the distributor plate. The arm on the column was also strengthened to decrease bending. Another improvement was Certi-Pik’s proprietary moistener pad lube distribution star pattern, which is located on the top inside of the moistener pad. This is available on both the John Deere and Case IH pads, and will more evenly distribute the spindle cleaning solution, allowing for better cleaning and picking. If you remember the narrow latch rod clips, know that we again heard your concerns, and designed the wider clip which is now also supplied by John Deere.
