I have a 2188 s/n JJCO189805 that I purchased from a neighbor. He was the second owner. Can anyone tell me where this particular machine was delivered to back in 1995?

Don't have a need to contact anyone concerning this machine...just curious where it hit the ground after leaving the factory. I'm guessing Texas as I looked on TractorHouse.com and found one that is 18 s/n's newer. Thanks

How much do you want to know?

Product ID: JJC0189805
MODEL: GH2188DA
Warranty start: 05/15/95
Warranty end: 05/15/96

I think this is the first owner....

Something interesting, The dealer name it was sold under is, "Warranty Admin" From Racine, WI. I think that is the first I have seen that.

The serial number that is 18 away, really does not help even in the guessing of where your machine came from in most cases.

Wow, now that IS something really interesting. I had no idea the original buyer was ever identified by any codes on a combine's data plate, anywhere.

I remember wanting to place some index cards [or rather having one of the final inspection/loading guys do it] in the cabs of however many combines I watched leave the plant, during my tour or even that day. Unfortunately, I got no cooperation.


Yes, it would have been much like releasing balloons with little notes in them, to see where they eventually landed. I was very curious then, just to see where all some 10-20 new combines also went, seeing how they all started from a common point, especially since I was there!

Delta, it is a long and strenuous process, no but really. All you need is access to CNH's warranty system.

Combiness, I guess I am having a hard time understanding what you are asking about with those cards.

Also there is no codes that are located on the combine that would tell you what it had/has for options. However I believe that SupportPro now has the ability to look up the "build sheets" of newer equipment through a serial number.


--EDIT-- Combiness, I reread your post, read over it too fast the first time, I understand what you were trying to do.
