I think it would be a home-run if the new impeller has a roundbar stationary concave rounded slotted panel under it to help thresh and separate. This would be an simple, affordable boost in capacity if it was designed to not hinder impeller feeding.

I'm not holding my breath.

It’s a good thing your not holding your breath!

No grates under the impeller or any silliness like that but with the extra diameter makes it’s possible to feed the rotor at an under neath angle and at a much more aggressive part of the rotor ears.

Next: Patent infringement!!!!

Didn’t you come up with a slide out concave grate that comes out the side?

Because so does the new machines! Corn to small grains is 5 mins.

Good thing you filed that with the patent office! Right?

Yes, SC did!

Yet another reason for Claas tracks in case the 25% bigger hopper wasnít enough.

3 years ago when I went on the factory tour in Omaha, I was amazed at how the Claas reps genuinely listened to farmers suggestions. I sat down with a young guy and he actually listened to some of my suggestions and wish list. He even went to his office and called the company that painted the grain tanks (which was just up the road a few miles) to inquired about changing the color from black to yellow. It never happened, maybe he just called his wife about supper, lol.

My suggestions included:

1. Changing the chain on the clean grain elevator to a cogged belt like a Gates PowerGrip. I don't like chains, they are loud, need lubrication frequently and wear out too easily in dusty conditions.

2. 2 speed clean grain elevator for us small gain guys. We don't need 5000 bushels an hour cracking wheat and canola and wearing out the auger and that small chain at the top of the elevator. New Holland has a 2 speed shoe that takes 3 minutes to move a belt to a different set of pulleys.

3. Paint the inside of the grain tank yellow instead of black for better visibility to see the grain sample. This would add zero expense to building the combine and be cheaper than the Profi Cam. Hopefully with the new color scheme they will paint the inside of the grain tank white.

4. Bigger rear window. I really like to see the grain sample as it helps to stet he combine properly. I know the profi cam works great but its lots of money ($10,000 ?) and I am cheap.

5. Unloading auger chain changed to a gates Powergrip belt. It would be cheaper than the o-ring chain that is on there now. It would last forever, not need to be oiled, be a lot quieter and be more efficient in power transfer. Motorcycles have been using then for over 25 years in place of the drive chain. They last for over 100,000 miles and can handle well over 100 hp. Harley Davidson had some bikes without a chain adjuster as the belt never even needed to be tightened for the life of the belt, 10 years and 100,000 miles!

Lets see if any of my wishes come true.

Ditchound. You’ll be happy about a couple things on your list.

It’s nearly starting to look like the release of the new Lexion might tick quite a few boxes on the wish list, fingers crossed
