I have a 2188 would like to up grade to a newer combine and am wondering if I am giving up much if any horse power or capacity with a 77 compared to the 2188. I run a 8 row corn head and 30 foot 1020 bean head. The 77's seem to be cheaper than the 88's is one of the reason I am considering it.

2188 has 260hp while 2377 has 255hp. They are pretty much the same combine. In fact, i probably wouldn't even upgrade unless the 21 has high hours, as there are not a whole lot of differences in machine.

The first year 2377s (2005 I think) were still manual fuel pumps. After that, they went to the electronic fuel injection. The electronic system seems to drink more fuel per acre. We have a 2002 2388 and a 2007 2588 that run side by side a lot. The 2588 drinks 10-20% more fuel, day after day.

If it was me, I'd be tempted to buy a 2005 2377, get some hopper extensions for it and turn up the screw on the fuel pump. You get an 88 for the price of a 77.
