7120 has selfleveling seive direct drive rotor not belts. capacity should be about the same 7088 just does not have as many features. kind of like a cadillac compared to chevy they will both do the same job but the chevy is just not as nice
Less Hp, no CVT rotor/header drive, smaller cleaning area/grain tank. The 7120 is basically a New Holland combine w/ a AFX rotor. The 7088 is a new size in the good 'ol IH style combine. I think the 7088 is proof that the 88 series isn't going anywhere. I think there is still a lot of demand for the 88 design & class 7 is the most popular size right now so it makes sense. I'd like to see a sales comparison.
Pretty much everything new and red around here is an 88 series. That's probably due to price and the fact that the class 7 is as big as most of us can get. We'd love to farm in an area where we could keep the big girls full, but 15-20bu wheat just doesn't do that.
