I will never have the hand rail up when I am not up there. Actually that might be the only time I put it up! It is 13 feet tall with the auger and extensions laid down. It will only fit in one of the sheds. It has auto-steer, hid lighting, elect. mirrors, trailer hitch, pretty much everything but rwa. I wanted it but we just don't need it that often in no-till. If it is that wet I will just stay off it anyway.
We ordered this one in August last year. From what I have been told, if you were to put in a order right now, it would only get you a spot on the pre-order for next fall. I don't know if that is true or not. We have a 8 row drago corn head and a 36ft 2162 flex-draper for beans, wheat, and milo.
If you are looking for a 2588 i know the dealer that you need to talk to. They started with about 15 brand new 2588 and have already sold half of them. That is since the first of the year. They also have some 8010's and some 2188s. They sell probably 50 combines a year at least.
