Default Can a 7088 replace an 08 8010?

Just looking at guys reply's, and being an operator who leases an 08 8010 (one of the last ones made), im wondering if a 7088 would better suit my needs.

We went with the 8010 thinking it would be our primary combine, but after all the "hoop lah" (bragging) we found it to be short of capacity compared to the lexion running beside it........

I don't want to bash the red combine, as it has harvested more of this farms acres since the late 70's than any other brand and has done a very good job.

What Im saying is, if a 7088 can run a 35' draper at 5 mph in 60 bu beans, and run a 12-30 corn chopping corn head in 200 bu, 18% corn, why have a 8010?
Aside from being able to reverse the rotor.

I understand Lexion has issues with dealer support, and resale...... But I can assure you, that isn't the case in my part of the world.... Please note that in your reply's.... Thankyou.

Why not just get another Lexion?

I kinda miss the light footed less electronic 2388 that the 8010 replaced.

Wheat harvest of 09 Case engineering test ran 5 machines here off and on thru a 3 week harvest, 2 9120's , 2 7120's, and a 7088, and our 8120. One 7120 was a tier 4 with DEF other was tier 3. They did extensive field productivity and efficiency tests comparing the 7088 and the 7120, the results were close with the 7120 edging out the 7088. From that experience I would expect an 8010 to be much more productive than a 7088.

this last fall i helped a freind of mine finish up his corn. he has a new 7088 with the same head as ours and we run a 2008 8010 we were in the same feild run running together. he could not keep up with me i think power was the biggest problem and when we got in the real good corn he would have to slow down so he did not overload the machine also. you could not have asked for any better comparison for the two machines as we were in the same feild running side by side. dont get me wrong the 7088 is one heck of a machine it did impress me with the job it would do but it does not compare to the 8010. last year we ran with him with his 2588 and the 7088 seems to be a big jump from the 2588.it is pretty impressive how much you can get done in a day with 2 machines 2 carts and all the trucks we needed

Thankyou, I appreciate you sharing the experience.

I would agree. I think you would have to go back to an earlier model 8010 for the 7088 to keep up with it. I would not go with a 7120 either for that matter... I think you will REALLY miss that extra 10'' of width in the cleaning system.

You are running a 585r beside your 8010 correct? It was a 575r but you guys traded if I remember. How does/did the 570r compare to the 8010? Can you keep the 8010's loss under control or does the Lexion blow that out of the water consistently?

If horsepower is not a limiting factor in corn will a 570r outperform the 8010 with a 12 row head?

You are correct in our equipment. This past year we put 35' drapers on both the 575 and 8010. 575 was an 05 (no jet stream) with 1600 seperator hrs. The 8010 is an 08.

We did 300 acres of wheat, the 575 performed just a tad better than the 8010. In 300 acres of Navy's they were bout dead even. In soys..... we had reocurring problems with the 575 at 1700+ hrs (years past problems).... 585 came..... Game over.

We did not compare 12 row corn side by side with the 575 and 8010. We run chopping heads..... The C-9 just don't have the oomph needed for power. We tried a 12-30 lexion chopping head in 08..... She ran around 3mph, where without the chopping, it would run 4.5-5 in the same corn.

In 09, 180 corn at 24-28% moisture the 575 would run an 8 row chopping head at 4.2 mph consistently. The 8010 ran a 12 row at 3.5 mph in the same corn..... Had to watch monitors like a hawk, or the fan was full of corn = by by air. Shoulda taken the lower sieve out.

As for dropping product on the ground..... I can't verify.... I will say I do not trust our 8010's sieve sensors. Another annoyance, as they seem to change over the course of days. Claas has had that case closed for over a decade.

It was wet here last fall..... 710 duals on the 8010 were no match for tracks. My question is, how much was gained for this years crop by not having ruts?

Seems the evil grain cart gets thrown under the bus in that department..... but these combines with 30' chopping heads, 400 bu hoppers, can easily get 70,000 pounds on the ground.

Have u thought about chipping the 8010 and seeing how it would compare. 7088's are. **** good machines

Yeah, but hp isnt much of a problem, its getting things into the tank instead of the out the back that Im more worried about. Though, im sure I wouldn't mind more ponies!

Since the 8010 is not our primary machine, was thinking (and I probly should have re-worded the topic post), a 7088 would fit my liking better.

You run a 35' draper on yours?
