Hello again,

Both of these photos are from my 2000 Harvest Season. I loved that 2388...I also wish I had a digital camera back then...Some of these pics are a little blurry.

Hi guys....

Hi Nathan...Yes I do own and operate a NH TR86 and like it but that 88 was just sizzling.

This picture was taken in North Dakota....

Thanks,

Not sure if you ever had any air filter problems or with the radiator but the newere 04-05 models really have improved that with the fan on the side

and how all of that opens up to clean

And the AFX rotor if that one didn't have it

(can't remember what year you said it was)

good pic's

Hi Casefarmer,

That 2388 is a 2000 model...The air intake shroud on top of the 88's were changed that year to the black plastic you see there. They said it helped keep out the larger dirt/dust/chaff particles from even entering the air filter system. We didn't have too many air filter problems that I can remember. Once in a while the air temp alarm would come on (I think
? I never had the problem on my machine) or engine temperature....It got pretty hot some days cutting wheat.

Thanks again....

You went with Holland havesting, thats pretty sweet. I plan to go with them or Johnson harvesting and I'd like to go to Australia too after highschool, well maybe after college my mom's pushing me to get some education before I go do things like that; good old parents lol. Has anybody ever harvested in Australia?

NH06: I have heard that Holland Harvesting is amazing to run with. I believe that Alex was meant to be running with them this year? But I hear that he has had to pull out due to family commitments
...

Ireland is close to me. It is just across the water(not sure which water it is) It is about a hour on a place or about 4-5 hours by boat


How was the 2388 with you? Would you recommend running with a crew that use them?

Please post more pics!


God bless,

- Gordon

Fellas,

First off, Rob and Sue and their family are amazing people. I could not have been more greatful than to have gone on the harvest run with them. The 2388 I ran was in my opinion absolutely stellar. It was a lot of work and lots of acres but it changed my life like no other experience. Having said that I would not have gone when I was 18 yrs old. Looking back, i knew I wasn't ready. I would recommend going after you get done college...While doing that try and rent some land and farm it to get some seasoning or go and work for someone off your own farm even just part time or for one summer. Those experiences you gain between 18-22 is not even funny. The only other thing I can say and it has been mentioned before on here was that you need to be able to adapt to all kinds of different personality types and styles or else you might be the odd duck out pretty quickly. I was fortunate to have a good crew in 2000 but some people do have horror stories out there about guys quitting in mid-season. Also, DO NOT have any attachments when you head down south....That will be a problem big time. I did not have a GF at the time and thank god...Your focus has to be on the men next to you and the 36 feet in front of you, not some poor woman at home asking you every day when you will be coming home.

There are more pics on the way this afternoon (after 430 EST ).....March Madness is starting so I will have to multi task.

Thats some good advice right there NH06, thanks. I am thinking about a part-time job maybe for a custom operator running a roundbaler in the summer. Yeah I think I'm going to wait until after college to go, but the reason I was thinking of going right after highschool is so I don't have any attachments or at least no serious relationships. You know when you spend a few years at college your probably going meet someone. Oh well I'll see what the future brings.

Hi there,

Cessnaguy: That Cat did work pretty well I thought. I did not run that cart and tractor much (like 5 hours max) but it handled it well. The cab is identical to a NewHolland 8670-8970 series tractor so I was biased in that way but it is a smooth ride.

Cropcutter: How did you run into Rob and Sue? Did you go south with them? You are right, they treat everyone with great respect.

Pics up later tonight.
