It has a join in it and itís all hanging together well so far, itís worth it just for how noisey it isnít. Itís extremely quiet
Probably not so much in your crop conditions and at your power level but the APS/APS concave area is responsible for 15 to 20% ish of the noise from under the cab and feeder house area. ZAPS (Zero degree APS caps) eliminate about 90+% of that noise
But more important ZAPS feed better all the time and the poorer the conditions the more they help.
While they donít have the 36 degree backswept angle the more aggressive attack angle and toothed design canít help but thresh more so I doubt ZAPS give up any separation at the APS concave.
It is actually possible to upgrade older feederhouses to the belt feed through Claas but I havenít been able to get a price yet on what that would cost, it wasnít that much to order the combine with it, but I think the upgrade would be a bit extreme, thatís the feeling I got when I started making enquires
It is not a ďkittedĒ item and it is too extreme to part it out, very cost prohibitive.
