I've run Case combines in rice forever. If I were you I would go with the 2388 first for the extra horsepower. They cut rice just fine. But a true rice combine will have Extended Wear items in it, but if not they can be added when you start to replace worn out parts. Such as the front Transition Cone and Elephant Ears.
I might add that if you have never operated an axial flow combine you will have a learning curve with the differant sounds, feel, ect. Then if, I mean WHEN, you get a slug that stops the rotor and shuts you down, you must realize there are wrong ways to try to unplug it. Some which can be expensive. So, get advice on that before you need it.
I run a 2388 and a 7010.
Good luck and God bless America.
