Start a new thread by entering one of the farming communities (Case IH, John Deere, etc), then on the white bar above the thread names there will be some smaller print that says Mark As Read, New Thread, New Poll. Click on New Thread and you'll be good to go.

As far as your flighting, try http://www.flightingsupply.com/ If you're anywhere in Canada or the northern U.S., they'll have pretty decent shipping rates I would think. I can't remember exactly what they want but it is in the ball park of half price of what Case wants.

I'm near Alnwick, on the east coast.
Built the hopper extention, as 2388 came with 22 foot header, (2188 had 20 foot), so I can get from one end of the field to the other. The tank auger struggles when the wheat gets above 19%, could do with another auger to keep the weight off the main one, but can't find anything at the moment.

Bit of an odd question northernone, but I worked with a guy from Carlisle back in '01 in Oz. Is there any search engine over there that I could use to try and get an address or phone number?
We were crewed up together and then the boss split the crew and we never saw each other again before I left.

Hello northernone, I am from near Saltburn near Redcar. Is that combine one of Paxtons?
I have a 1680 with Gorden bars and just put an airjet chaffer. Have a couple of friends in Scotland with US mods on their combines too.
My email is [email protected]

This won't help you find a auger but this is what dad uses in his 2366.

Thats a Maurer bubble up auger attachment you got there xhawkeye. Crary make one similar too and they work very well. No more slip clutch going off and the inclined auger lasts 2 to 3 times longer than without using it. Take a look at the following websites. www.maurermfg.com or www.crary.com

Thank you for the responses. Is the bubble up auger driven hydraulically and do you know what price they are? I think this would be a good long term solution.
The 23 is from Paxtons, and I have given it no other mods.

Last I heard a Crary package with control valve/hoses was $1800.00 Can$. I have seen some hooked up in the reel circuit loop by coupling in at the feeder house couplers instead of plumbing a control valve. But you cannot control the auger speed unless you have the control valve. You can see the hoses in the picture posted previously with the hyd motor at the base of the auger.

Had to go to the farm and took these pictures.



Where the hoses exit the grain tank.




The auger pivots down so it will not catch on the door of the machine shed. The latch pin in the lower left hand corner keeps the auger in the up position.

HEY great Photo's & some handy solution to the grain elevator choke due to excess weight on bubble auger.

I had sam problem with 2188 yrs ago in sorghum, doing 1t/min once the bubble auger got covered there was problems. Tighten the 6 side belt very tight, i cut about 10mm of the pipe yrs ago, also

FELLA SAID TO CUT 1/2" OFF THE PIPES ON THE SLIP CLUTCH... BE VERY CAREFULLY WITH THAT IF THE CLUTCH HAS TO GO OFF FOR SOME REASON 1/2" MAY BE TOO MUCH, I PUT AN EXTRA THICK WASHER UNDER THE SPRING FIXED MY PROBLEMS along with the tight belt, i found the belt was slipping first before i tightened it up. with the big top the extra bubble auger would be great.

have fun
Phill
