35 ft 2020

We are looking at a deal to go from our 2388 to a 7010 or 8010. Question is i have read alot about bad experiences with the 2020 head. Dealer has a new 35' 2020, or a one year old 35' 2020 with a air reel. Are they that much worse than our 1020. Local dealers around here have sold some and claim very good results compared to the 1020. But will a 70 or 8010 reach its full potential with a auger style head on it. Any info would be great.

Re: 35 ft 2020

I would stay away from the 2020 in green stem beans, in dead beans or frozen it works fine to a point. The auger drive chain is the weak ling for the 2020. If the chain and idlers are not in the right spot the chains break really easy.
Otherwise find a flex draper, it will be your best move.
