I have a 2188, that this winter, I fixed the feeder house because it was slugging last year. Which I thought was the problem. I put a new floor in, chain, sprockets, drum, the works the front is basically all redone. I ran it, and it worked better at feeding, But, if it gets any wet or green, or just will randomly slug. Now, I know my feeder house chain is on correctly. I do have a rock trap and impeller, it is the OEM 3 side, which is also where it will slug. Here is the rub when it slugs it throws the chain on the side that connects the drive/beater/reverser. I thought it was not tensioned enough, put on a spring when rebuilding and a new chain there, yet it still slugs at the beaters. Rotor will be totally empty. Rebuilt rotor also and put in new veins so it should be eating like a champ. My 1680 does not have the stone retarder/trap beater, and will cut all things at all hours, with this 2188 if it gets a hint of moisture, it will plug at the stone impeller. I have searched the forum with info on the razor beater, which is my next purchase. But just need to know OEM settings for now to get through this harvest this year. Will show a picture of my set up on the side. I also am using the 32 gear and making sure it is slow speed and not high speed with the beater. Any pro tips will help. I live in Kansas and never have had a stone trap beater before thanks!
