I've seen some combines with 10 bolt finals and others that have the bolts in groups of 3. Not sure how many bolts in total.
If someone knows where it is on the web that I can find what the 12 row kit entails, please post. This time I'll save the site. I know I asked the same question last year, but I didn't keep the info and when I search I come up empty.
RAB, since you own both a 2188 and a 9760, you are probably the best person to answer the question I have.
Our 2188 is getting to the point where I want something different. I would like a newer 2388, but unfortunately, economics on the farm dictate that the 2188 will be the last new one we buy. We optioned it well and I can't seem to find one that has what I want. I can find one with chrome, but then it won't have a rock trap. Or I'll find one with both, but it has a short auger. There is always something that I either don't want or need. On top of that the local CaseIH has gone to he-double hockey sticks.
The Deere dealer is strong and that leaves me the alternative of going green. I have found a 9760 that is optioned well and the price is right. This thing is overkill for our acres, but local support will be better.
What do you find is the strengths of the Deere over the Case and vice versa?
I personally think 12 rows is honestly a bit more than a 2388 can handle. However, I know that a mod of 10 rows is just right. A former employer had just that--a 10-row head with GVL snouts [30" rows] which worked nicely on a 1680.
