    they don't seem to wanna give them new 5000ish bushel hopper bins away either last one I priced with air was around 21000, were gonna be short space here to I'm thinking on hauling some canola out to make room, its fun building a pile but sucks to clean up, also personally I'd buy a 2188 before I'd buy another 2388 we have both and the 2188 has more snort under the hood than my 2388 plus the 2188 has a way better air filter system I'm constantly blowing my filter out, I test ran a 2588 and it's a nice machine and the feeder house is the limiting factor on that machine

    1480 red cab combines.

    I had a 85 1460 it was a machine it would take anything I thru at it I sold it a few years ago and was supposedly heading for Mexico donno if it ever made it I wished I woulda kept it, it was more reliable than our 1984 1460 we had at the time also miss starting it on a cool morning the 436 straight pipe cold start was the best thing ever

    we haven't moved for a week now got some snow again Friday night and hasn't warmed up yet sounds like really awesome combining weather coming looking forward to getting some acres off and filling more bins, bin space may be an issue here I've already rented a bin from a neighbour who's done harvest how many hours the ol 2188 got this fall poorfarmer?

    i plugged my 1680 like that with a peas and kochia mix, the 1680 rocker wrench came with the chain on one end you could wrap around the torque sensor and jump on and reverse the rotor really nice option I donno why they didn't send out the newer machines I plugged the ol 1460 with barley once goin around a slough plugged front to back and hard and tight rotor beater feederhouse and all took me and my brother about 7 hrs to get it running again

    ouch thats what that belt is worth I've wondered my 2388 has another one tied in and the 2188 it had one tied in when we got it but used it last year and haven't replaced it, I bought that rotor belt, the main elevator slip clutch belt and a few others all new in a pile at a farm sale for $190 so i'm feeling better about that purchase now, good day here still a cool wind though

    bleached not sure what it will grade it's aways from the bin yet I would think just a 5, I've sold some for sample grade already for a good price, I know the grading system in the states is way different for grading durum actually better, few years ago one elevator sent a whole train down to the USA because of better grading system

    11.1 moist I would have been jumping all over that I finished canola just before all the snow episodes and it's around the 12% moist still waiting on elevator room to move it out so they can dry it glad to be done the canola now I can concentrate on the wheat and durum and hopefully get it off close to dry I figure around the 18% moist mark we'll put some in the bin if I woke up to snow like that I would turn right around and go back to bed that will take awhile to dry up there db1486 we were on the very edge of the last system that went through

    Dale560 did you eventually have to replace the switch later on or has it worked ever since? debating weither to pick one up or not not a bad day here didn't get warm but just nice wind was cold, got the canola field done not sure what the moisture test is but glad to be done canola and move home as the last field was the furthest quarter from home, tried some wheat first hopper was 17 next one was 19.5moist so we shut it down hopefully things turn around soon I need a good 10 days to get done

    I was hoping to do some spraying this fall but that plan is over no point now we've had enough frost the Canada thistle is dying on its own, its colder than I like at harvest the 2388 the heater don't work like come on it's harvest time your suppose to use the air conditioner not heater so I've never bothered to fix it I remember the ol 1440 just reach your arm over and crack open the valve and you were sweating before you knew it had one little malfunction today I put the auger out and hit the button and nothing figured a solenoid or something I checked a few things and came home to look on the ol google machine and found there's 2 switches up top that can cause grief and it was the switch by the saddle for the auger just gave it a good smack and it worked the rest of the day I'll have to get a new one ordered Monday

    weather wise it was just plain cold and windy all day hauled the canola up and sat in line up for 2 hrs everyone is trying to get rid of tough canola got home and fired the combine up and loaded it again about 50 acres of that field left i'm hoping to get it finished tomorrow the load I hauled in was 11.7 moisture so not to bad, tested on load today and like ralph said its to cold to get an accurate test suppose to get down to -7 Celsius here tonight so maybe a cold hard frost will make the weather turn around

    i tried a bunch of wheat at noon my field was testing 21 at one end and 22 at the other I did a loop in another field and it was 19 just a little tougher than I would like it yet, so I tried canola swaths and started with 13.3 and when the truck was full the last hopper was 12.7 so it was good to get another semi load done it's heading into the elevator to be dried and hopefully get another semi done tomorrow forecast isn't looking good for another week after tomorrow
