Worm Wigwam

I am looking to get some feedback from Worm Wigwam users.  I find that I am getting compaction along the inside of the casing just above the cutter bars.  What seems to be happening is that as the cutter bar reaches the end of its' travel, it tends to compress the material to the casing.

"Great video, very well presented.  I thought about the seeds, but I figured that since I sift it through a screen that is just under 1/4", any seeds still left wouldn't make it through.  This is a flow-through system, so I…"
