Thumbs up Upgrading from a 2388 to a 7088, any tips?

Hello all.


Well, the title says it all. Yesterday we drove about an hour to see my dad's preferred Case IH salesman as he offered up a pretty decent trade deal on our 05' 2388 towards a 11' 7088 they took in recently.


This combine will be coming to us with a completely new rotor/concave as the previous owner ran something in it and dented the rotor and knocked one or two bar mounts off. How it didn't vibrate like crazy, I'll never know.


It also has brand new clean grain and return chains already installed. It looks like it was ordered with extended wear augers so all of those are still nice and thick.


We will be adapting our current 30' Macdon draper and our 8 row Geringhoff corn head to run with this new combine. I believe that it will have a Pro 600 monitor in it as well.


So...anyone have any tips or suggestions? How much of a learning curve are we looking at going from a 2388 to the 7088?





Thanks in advance.

Isn't that basically the same guts inside a fancier shell and controls?

11 years ago now(seems like forever) we switched from 1688's to 7010's and I thought the transition was pretty easy. Our dealer had a pretty good product specialist that gave us some basic settings and a good walk through. The PRO600 is a very intuitive monitor and the controls are easy to learn.

My question would be how many of those machines are in the area and do they stock parts? Up here it is pretty much all flagship CaseIH combines, but your area could be different.

Good question. I know a few that are running 8/9 flagship combines, but I seem to remember one or two of the 88's around also. Our local dealers (three within an hour's drive) have almost always had a part we needed on our 2388. And ours is kinda a hybrid of a 2388/2588 as we think it was built when they were transitioning over to the 25 series. Even then, if we needed something and none of the dealers had it, they could get it to us usually by the next morning/afternoon as long as the distribution warehouse had it in stock.


From what I've been reading so far...the 7088 follows along the tried and true idea of the past designs...just beefed up a bit. Still, each generation of combine (regardless of the color) all have their quirks. That's what I'm mainly looking for, what should we be looking out for?

Nothing really. It’s just a pimped up 2388.
They can go like the clappers. Good HP
They blow black smoke which looks terrible.

Park brake issues the only thing I had go wrong in a couple of seasons. It was going run for run with the 9120, but they are nothing special.

Maybe put some Gordon bars on if you have tough wheat, otherwise it will go well as is, especially in your corn.

Square box........
Round pizza.......
Triangle pieces....

Iam confused......

We rarely raise wheat, mainly just corn and soybeans. And Iím not a huge fan of rolling coal...but Iím am glad this 88 doesnít have DEF.

I was reading about the Pro 600 and I saw that the Pro 700 allows camera inputs. As it turns out, we have a couple of cameras that should work with the 700...I just have to take them off our outgoing 2388. How much of a headache is it to upgrade from a Pro 600 to a 700?

Probably about a $5000 headache is all

Never heard of an 7088 with a Pro700, I guess they will “talk” to each other. Check first

way before you pull the plug on the Pro 700 make darn good and sure it will talk to the combine without down grading the Pro 700.. Or you just paid 5K and however much for programing to have a fancier monitor.. I have a Pro 600 in my combine, and Pro 700s in the planter/ air seeder tractors.. They are better for running the planter and drill, but from what I've seen in the neighbors combine unless you are auto steering it there is no real advantage.. When I updated air seeder tractors it came with a Pro700 from a Pro 600 that was in the last one, 3 service calls later and a task controller unlock I could finally run my drill.. ( first 2 trips the tech tried down grading the Pro 700 to a 600, and the tractor was just goofy..)

I've seen plenty of 088 combines with Pro700s in them. Just talk to your dealer tech. Not sure its going to help you much. The problem with the 088's for my end of things is the c*** cornerpost. Case tried to make a "non-language specific" control system, and basically ended up with a "Non-people obvious" control system.... Its not that hard, just keep a cheat sheet around.

Probably won't go with a 700 Pro then...sounds like its just not needed.


It sounds like I'll get the crash coarse on this new rig this weekend...I was just asked if I could drive our old 2388 over this Saturday and make the swap.

The monitor in those machines doesn't actually control any combine functions. It maps, and will run the autosteer if equipped, but that's all, you don't adjust settings or anything in them other than calibrations, that is all done via A-pillar and knobs/switches.
