1680 vs 2188 or 2388

I'm thinking of getting a 21 or 23 series machine and keeping my 1680 as backup or when a 2nd operator is available.
What is the difference between 2188 and 2388 besides horsepower? Would a 21 series with the same hours as a 23 series be in better shape due to less bushels going through it?

Thanks for any input.

Everything you want to know. You won't go wrong with any of those machines. Good luck

2388 has a hydraulic feeder house reverser, which is a 1000000 x better than the electric ones. 2388 s also have a way better rad system for staying clean.

Not all of them I believe the early ones had the electric reverser still .. the 2388 had the tailings monitor as standard equipment as well

There’s a few models of the 23 but Iam guessing your looking at an early one.......

The HP and better cooling / rotary screen package is really the only difference.

The 23’s might have had something better or updated stronger on the rear axle I think.........?

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

Iam confused......

Don't think so, still had to weld them up the same as a 21 if they'd had weights on or done any long roading.
Might get an afs monitor in a 23 for yield monitoring not much else unless you step up to an exclusive or extreme

Pretty sure you had to get to the 2588 which they beefed up the frame and alxe considerably.

Don't blame the baker when the butcher bakes the bread.

Rotor and sieve area are the same size. Basically gave it some more fuel and some bells n whistles. Most things are easily updated to 23. Capacity wise they should be the very close. Mostly creature features.

I've only ran corn and soybeans through each of these but capacity wise a turned n tuned 1680 (1480 for that matter) will stick with a 21/2388. Nicer cab,controls (handle) and the auger swings forward a few more degrees tho.

Super simple to run the 88 series. My gf never even sat in a combine and caught on to 2188 super fast and shes usually not real quick.🤣

I thought the adjustable axle insert was thicker RHS but maybe Iam thinking about something else. Been a long long time since I was involved with the 21/23ís.

Great simple reliable machines regardless...........

Kind of like a chick with a tight body that does't need make up.

Well not really but you get the point.
