Looks great!
New to me changes are of course the belt feeder , tier3 Perkins motor with the cooling package, a light in the engine bay , mechanical drive spreader on the pro chop, 7xl folding auger, new variator setup, some of the ones getting around at the moment haven’t shown any wear after 700 hours , looks like a different style rotor drive gearbox, different looking housing at least. Once it’s been through the work shop it will have the SB threshing cylinder and impeller, Greenstar steering and mapping via Agragps bridging box and the Claas steering valve

High speed rotor gearboxes are different, that is likely what you are seeing, do you have 12 section separation as well, I think those are packaged together?

I donít know either but that is completely different gearbox than we get, itís almost like you have a newer model as I have never seen them Claas forged before.
Does your rotor pan run right back to the chopper indicating 12 section separation?

You need to climb up there and get a picture of the plate on the gearbox. Should be able to stand on the "No step" tailboard and get up there.

I have a 780 with high speed rotors and am running with a 780 that has regular speed rotors and I am getting at least a 20% capacity increase in cereals(more when it's tough). It is to the point where I would pony up the 12K per gearbox or whatever they cost if I didn't already have them. Should be standard equipment on all models, not just 780's. The extra rotor grates have much less impact on separation ability than the speed.

Heard that 2020 models in NA get auto threshing and that's all. Ho hum, nothing meaningful there. Was hoping for a faster unload auger or something like that. Wish I could take the unload auger off the New Holland I was in last week and put it on my combine, that thing was fast.

Just what advantage do you see with the high speed rotors? Is it more throughput, less loss...?

I often see little change in my crops with rotor speed.

I'm all out, but feel free to spill the beans for us.

If the faster rotors are working better it may be cheaper to change the pulley size to get them to go faster. How fast can you make the new ones go?
