Hi all,
running a 2188 and am thinking about going to a 7088 but have been offered a 7120 for a very good price. I'm nervous about going to the cvt and shaker system under rotor. we are doing small seed crops like lab lab and wet grass seed crops.
the extra horse power and cleaning area is attractive in the 7120 but will the cvt use the extra power?

I went from a 2188 to a 8120 and have been extremely happy. The 8120 is a huge productivity increase over the 2188 as well as being a very reliable machine. It just works better. I don't have good fuel usage records from when I had the 2188, but fuel is such a small part of the total cost of harvesting, I wouldn't be very worried about it.

thanks for your reply, I'm not worried about fuel usage I'm worried about all the extra hydraulics and the complexity of the eclectical system etc. also having a shaker pan instead of the auger bed?? I may be thinking about it to much?
