Standard vs specialty rotor straw quality

Upgraded from 1680 to a 2188,
I'm used to a standard rotor with kyle flights, helicals removed, airfoil, crossflow fan and long seive. The 2188 has a specialty rotor with factory intake and seives.
What should I expect for straw quality and threshing in wheat? High straw, high yield, probably all swathed.
I was able to bale canola straw with my 1680, will that be possible with the specialty rotor?

Unless you have a special baler that can pick up nearly anything I don't think you will be able to bale canola straw unless it is green and wet . The specialty rotor will chew the straw up quite a bit more but it will still be baleable in square bales maybe not in rounds depending on the baler .

We were asked to drop our canola straw this year. 8230 straight combining 233P worked excellent. A few ridges in the field the straw was too ripe and just crushed to nothing but otherwise worked well. JD big square balers.
