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 not a ďkittedĒ item and it is too extreme to part it out, very cost prohibitive.

Should only be top shaft and bottom drum along with belted feeder chain.

I will let a few run around here for a couple years before I would change or get it.

More interestingly will there be any choice on new units in say three years, that will tell you how it worked overall.

I will be running rubber this fall.
