Re: Volvo BM Aktiv S 830
I think my father had one of these with a fixed 8'6" table
back around 1968.
As I remember it, it had a stupid final drive with the wheel
centre made of cast steel with internal teeth. This was
unable to handle larger tyres and steep ground so that the
teeth sheared off regularly.
It also had a non-reciprocating grain pan with a driven
conveyor to carry grain back from the walkers and concave to
the seives. This was not a good idea because it did not
throw the grain up into the wind flow as it entered the
sieve area and if the table stone trap was not locked in a
proper position the conveyor would catch it and bend itself
and the pan floor causing much serious damage.
