In central Indiana we have several 700 series that have Sunnybrook cylinder and inpleller.

Everyone seems to be very happy with the performance of the product
Keeping the Lexion roundbar concave and adding roundbar preconcave segments
they say less bean splits

The APS caps are a casting made of 8630 STEEL...not a ductile iron casting. These casting have the same properties as plate/flatbar etc. They can be boronized, heat-quenched-tempered same as any hardenable steel. (8630 is a nickle-chrome-carbon alloy steel)

Good place for a funny story:

After visiting with Gerald at the Sunnybrook booth in Minot last week and getting a good explanation about these caps, I stopped in at the PFP booth at the other end of the building. Young fella there asked me if I was interested in anything(he caught me peeking), I said I had a Claas combine and wondered about the impeller as I already have a SB cylinder and concave. Well, he pulls out his CAT brochure and loudly proclaims he has something for my CAT combine! Shows me a beater in the booth for NH and says it would be similar to the CAT one. I asked why it had all straight bars in center and nothing angled like on my factory impeller? He said owners were finding that the stock one did not put enough material into the center of the machine...... I smiled, took the brochure and walked off.

Sunnybrook impeller and APS caps going in the 780 this summer to make it all SB internals for fall. Nice to have a company that is putting out great products that improve on an already great product. I am interested to try a set of those chopper blades too.

SWMan you should've told them you don't have a CAT lol.


so do i understand it right there is nothing to split up the flow with their impeller??
All the V-Part is missing,do they understand how the Lexion works ??

Maybe they are trying to do a impeller for a walkermachine....lol haha.

Oh I did once but I don't think he even knew what a Claas was, let alone a hybrid Claas. I'm sure he was thinking it was like a CX New Holland. Give the guy credit that he sucked me into the booth, but that's when he needs to hand me off to someone who knows what was going on.

Just imagine what could happen if a John Deere had a drum with this new knobby tire design to replace that wingy old feed accelerator!

Maybe that slug prone rear beater too!

Hey! One round on the front of the rotor wouldn’t hurt either.

Indeed, just imagine how much more crop could be poured on the ground!

I was under the belief that that Claas has figured out how to keep the chaff inside the rotors with simple covers to solve that problem too.

They have. Years ago.
It’s just you’re under the illusion a Deere could deal with more material.
