The biggest difference between the two combines in my opinion was the size of the feeder. The 14's feeder was narrower and was the restricting factor of it's capacity. We had both models with rodono hydraulic revercers on them.(a must in canola) I remember the first day with the 16's we were calling for fuel filters as we able to feed so much more material into them. We used a 836 versatile and a CIH 7130. Both had power shift. Replaced three gear boxes in one,none in the other. One advantage was the fact that we didn't have two cumming's sitting idle 11 months of the year.

The three 1482's we have been stripping for parts all have the same feeder house, chain and rocktrap housing as our 1480's, 1682's and the neighbors 1680. Except for some added/updated brackets and the triple strand feeder chain the rest can be swapped over. They had both style front drums . They did have the four blade/sided rocktrap beater that we think hampered feeding, going to a three sided in our 1480's made a noticeable difference.
We have even used the main hex cross-shafts and one front drum in our 2388's.
The 810 headers and header drives on the 1482' were poorer feeding than the 1015 header's and the 16 series drives.
It is amazing the stuff we have taken off those old 1482's and bolted right on to the 2388's.
