Just wondering about purchasing a 36 foot 1042 draper for a 2388. Has any had any problems with these fronts that i should be looking for. Also regarding the finger tine reel is it hard on the eyes with the fingers flipping over rather than staying vertical like most fronts. Any advice would be most welcome.

Re: 1042 PROBLEMS???

We run 6 of these heads and they seem to hold up really good and we put 800 to 1000 hours a year on each one. I would recommend starting out putting all new bearings in each roller. It's pretty cheap and money well spent rather than buying a new shaft and tube and possibly a belt if you don't catch it in time. We've blown a couple of o-rings and orbit motors but that's par for the course when you go through the hours like we do. Good Luck!
