Hello Ladies & Gents, I have 2188 & due to too much work have worn the feeder housing floor out, because the high prices of spares i was planning on getting a new floor cut, just wondering if anyone knows if it is hardned steel, something like Bisalloy, it is only about 3mm thick so i cannnot be real hard bis. Is a possiblity thats its mild steel!?!?!?

Hi Phillphy and welcome to this site!

Hmmm... Not real sure I can help you on what type of steel that is, but I'm pretty sure someone else on here can


Where are you from anyway??

OEM isn't any kind of special steel. I made my own using my welding shops plasma table and went with 3/16" thick AR 225 steel and then rolled the end like OEM on the press brake. Have never had to replace them and takes the rock and debris far better than the factory 1/8". We have even sent our own floors to the factory and had them put them in our combines when they were being built new.

Our old 2166 we wore a hole through the floor right in the front of the feeder house. We just replaced with an OEM one. Was kind of a PIA to changed but sure quieted the feeder house down.

Hi there. yep no worries thanks for the reply, had a feeling would only be mild steel. i probably go for something a little tougher than original.
