Has anyone compared extended wear parts to standard parts for component life? Most extend wear sheet metal parts (elevator boots, ect.) are about twice the cost of standard parts. If they lasted twice as long, it would be worth the investment in labor and downtime savings.

I am also interested in ways to extend the Clean Grain Trough life. There is a very high wear area on the right side transition area to the elevator. Would a short (10") patch work better inside of the trough or outside? Any other fixes for this problem area?

Thanks

Extended wear seems to be worth the money. Had a 2188 with extended cone in it from new, went three times more hours in corn,beans,wheat than the standard version cone would go. Depends if you keep the combine for ten years or if you roll them every year or two weither you invest the extra money or not. It would make a difference to me buying a used combine if it had the extended wear parts in it.
