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.

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.
