If a 2388 has weights on the rear axle, does that mean that it has the 12 row ready package?

What about the final drives?

Everyone is right on there comments above

we actually got one of these in 2005 for a combine instead of what we usually get....

different tires than what we were used too...

Also the auger in the hopper and some other parts (supposably) are extended wear.....

Ha..what a great idea that is...

extended wear isn't the right termanology but its something like that....

Thats pretty much it besides what everyone else said....

The slip clutch on the clean grain elevator sure was junk

we had more problems with that than we ever had on any combine...

not sure if a 4 row head would have worked on it

something just wasn't right there..but apparently they got it figured out...so i guess well see

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?
