The Flexxifinger was developed by Dave Dietrich of Assiniboia, Saskatchewan back in 2004. The crop lifters that fit onto virtually any combine header makes it easy to pick up crops that are flat on the ground ranging from canola to lentils. It only takes about 10 minutes to install the lifters on a 35 foot header according to spokesman with Flexxifinger. The firm also makes lifting pans that attach to the flexxifingers to reduce shattering losses while straight cutting crops like beans, peas and canola. Recommending spacing for the flexxifingers is 24 inches and at the time of our visit the costs per lifter ranged from $55 to $75.
