We have a Geosteer prepped 730 on its way. Will be using an Integra to steer and yield map. Could we use a JD itc reciever that we have now to get the signal for the Integra so that it will do both steering and yield mapping?

Another question, Class is offering an impeller wear kit. Does anyone have any experience with it? Is as good as an HHS kit?

Been lurking here for a while, coming from a long line of green machines. You guys have been very helpful in making a decision easier to make the move.

Thanks

I think a Deere receiver can be used for location sharing, such as yield mapping (we do that with our deere tractor and kinze planter using deere 2600 and Integra) but do not think it would ever work to steer a Claas via an Integra.

I don't know what crops you do but if you do anything viney such as soybeans, I would recommend an impeller wear kit and rotor flow kit. The impeller wear kit is obvious as shown on HHS website. Is is just simply a good idea to have installed and helps make the impeller last longer, making it stronger and gives it more momentum. I don't have the rotor flow kit but have not heard anything bad about it. It consists of, from front to back, a more aggressive "V" in the middle of the back of the concave to begin to split material, a different nose piece between the rotors and impeller, and also different rotor hangers, all for improved crop flow to get the material divided and fed into the two rotors. (I have to wonder how New Holland has done this for years in the very front of the combine. I would think it would be even harder there...?)

I think SunnyBrook Welding might actually have the best impeller kit with a longer life material, but I am not sure.

Thanks Seedcleaner. Guess we'll need to go the Geosteer route. Talked to the Class rep today, he said that in his area, he usually puts in the factory wear kit when the machine comes from the factory. Will have to look into the impeller wear kit and flow kit. We do some soybeans that can be kinda green stemmed as well as hulless barley which often times has the grain ready and straw tough. The 730 is a new model.

Andy & John said that you would have sound advise.

Well slow down eggs. I don't know much so don't take just my advice. Better talk to your rep or others as well for advice as it could save you some money, especially on the receiver portion. I don't "think" the deere antenna will work on the Claas/Integra.

Oh, I guess you got my P.M.?
