Not personally but a neighbor and friend of mine did and claims he gained 1 mph.

I believe he put a beater kit in and chipped it ? He was very happy as apparently the cts is a dog in canola.

just did the beater and cylinder on my cts11 this year and increased capacity from 8t/h to 13t/h.

buts; i found other worn parts and replaced them that might explain increased capacity and changed the setup a little. first i found the divider panel between the rotors where it comes over from the beater was worn out and would have tagged material getting into the rotors.I also rebuilt the feeder house clutch.and the feeder chain was set on corn settings and has now been put on small grain.

But the machine now uses less fuel (it used to take a tank to do 70t now it would do 140 t of canola)

It will aso go at night when it would not he previous year.

There have been also no beater blocks in canola while last year i had at least 5 where i had to wind the rotors out to clear.

the other thing is in hot conditions the canola munches up the straw and overloads the seives but you just slow the cylinder down more than you normally would. I only just put it in high gear the other day after the barley got tough. but it would go through most things at 530rpm.

when the beater gets installed the stripper plates that surround the beater come out but the problem is canola gets out these holes and gets on the vari belt causing it to slip . the answer is john deere tape bits of rubber and window cleaner on the belt gets rid of the oil.
it also took a mechanic three and a half days to fit and depending on tyre size you might have to remove the right wheel and the vari sheave drives and the repeat elevator. the other possible complication is that you might have a bent cylinder shaft and the drive for the beater gear box can be difficult to remove and may need special tools.

I would definitly recomend to do it to the machine. It has turned an ordinary machine in canola to a reasonable one.

Interesting scale, kinda like 6 of one, half a dozen of the other.


Don

lets translate from australian strine to canadian "ordinary; one of the most disapointing experiences you have ever had , reasonable ; just short of what you had hoped for" ie the price of canola is ordinary at the moment the prices in 2007 were reasonable.

it is said that England and the USA are two peoples divided by a common language

ps hot(34 degrees C) here now and still harvesting ,oops sorry; combining , just started the wheat today. hope you have plenty of snow for next years crop don.

OK, that makes your scale make sense, thank you.
Funny you should mention snow, we're in the middle of the biggest snowstorm for years.
