Impeller wear bars

Has anyone made their own out of something like AR plate? Or if buying some would you go with HHS or the Heavy duty ones from CLAAS>

There is nothing wrong with AR plate. It is about 3 times harder than regular steel. You should be able to make them for a fraction of the price.

When we still had a stock impeller we bought the Boronized ones Sunnybrooke make, and we were very happy with them.

I can draw one up for you and them laser cut this winter while im building my vertical tillage tool. Just get me either a cardboard copy or an original and how much material you want added. Ill bring your sensor back the next rainout and get the template if you have it ready.

I looked at mine the other day hunting down a vibration, and i was shocked how worn they are for having only picked 340ac of wheat and 550 corn.

Yes, I have made them. A good sharp knife on the rotor nose was much more beneficial. The last set I made, were made with a MMMMM pattern to better grab material from the cylinder. They worked very well.

Yes I had a WaterJet place down the road make me a set with some small teeth.
Using AR steel.
Also Welded a corn head knife to the dogs tongue.
And ground a small gap in the center of the chevron on the impeller to have positive cut and separation.

Good memory! Yes, it worked very good. The theory was to get the impeller a bit more aggressive instead of having it lean back so far, much like the APS paddles.

I now run a SB impeller for other reasons...thought the factory impeller and/or drive shaft was bent. Upon removal, it looked like possibly the only issue was the four bolts holding shaft to impeller was loose.
