The small smooth ones for canola like 6mm wide or the huge oval hole smooth ones? I found a lot of green pods and crap in my sample when I tried the huge oval hole ones.

Canola ones with the disawn plates closed. I figured it would just fill up and become basically smooth. I left all my rotor flaps open and basically zero out the back anyways, so didn't need the open area on the APS.

I have never tried the canola aps concaves in peas. Will have to give them a try. How did you have your combine set for the peas this year. Think I read 350 cylinder and 12 mm concave, but not sure what rotor speed, chaffer, shoe and cleaning fan speed you use? Do you have the variable speed feederhouse and slow it down? I just have the standard fixed speed feederhouse. Hoping to dip into my peas today or tomorrow. Odd green canola plant in my peas.

I had the odd green plant too. Do not have variable speed feeder. Rotor at 850ish and all flaps open. I do have the extra rotor grates, but 100RPM would easily replace the extra grate section. I do have Sunnybrook cyl and all crop concave and this year the impeller.

I have this fear the new 7/8000 series rotor finger grates are going to cause over separation, read too much crap on shoe in swathed canola.
2/3rd’s cover may be not enough.
It is likely is why they can put 790 hp to the same setup though for other crops.

The larger front end and smoother crop flow I’m sure will make up for that.

I wouldn’t expect miracles though with the same cleaning system.

Other than in cab control of main concave separation area and ALL of the rotor cover area, it will be interesting.

Maybe claas is counting on automation to make up for the lack of increased cleaning system area, now more than ever?

I assume you can still order a machine bare bones with no automation?

Lack of cleaning area compared to what?

Compared to what they had before. I thought everything on the new model has increased in size/capacity, except the cleaning system is the same.
