Header size,I know here we go again

I am running 2 CIH 2344's( '98 and '01) using a CIH '97 1020 22.5 w AWS and '08 25' Harvestmore obviously cutting 47.5' very efficiently and cheaply as it's obviously all been paid for.
If could reset all of it to zero I'd be most satisfied with this arrangement but as we all know this is wishful thinking.
I have a very good chance at getting a CIH 2588 so running a 30' on that machine is just wasting fuel.
Excues me for long intro but I like to know all the facts before I can comment on a question
Since i'd be looking at '35 auger head is there many issues with feeding auger bending or it getting out of round. Thanks in advance
BTW not interested in drapers!!

What area you from and what crops you harvesting? 30’ is lots on an 88 around here. I’ve never seen a 2344 so I assume your way south or east?

We ran 30' on a 1680 and then a 2388. In our area 30' is a perfect fit.

I cant comment on auger headers but we run a 2588 with a 36' 2062 and it works well. We have larger rear tires with chloride in them and a 1200lb weight kit on the rear axle to offset the header weight though. Without the weight kit on the axle everytime you lift the header the combine almost came off the ground and steering was difficult. A 2062 will be heavier than an auger head just not sure by how much.

I grew up cutting lots of acres of hay with a IH 5000,you guessed it with 12' draper.
what was old became new again no thanks!!
I'm Scottish so why would I purchase an item for at least 30% more that does the same job.
in our area Ontario Canda there's a lot specialty beans grown. We grow roughly 200 ac of natto beans along with the normal corn, soy wheat. When I see other farms adding air systems to the already $$ draper makes me think they can't be feeding like their advertised or sold to be.
Never had a minute of maintenance in 40 years of harvesting on any auger!

After cutting with a draper will never go back to a table auger setup.

I bought my draper in 2013 and heard the exact same thing from dad, "we had one of those on an old massy and it was junk, don't know why anyone would buy one now ".

He runs the combine 95% of the time and love the draper now. Don't discount one just because they were junk in the past.

Our 2388 handles a 35ft macdon just fine so I don't know why a 2588 wouldn't handle a 35ft auger header just as well.

Auger heads don't feed as well, 35' auger head would be a lot for a 2588.
