How much more capacity, 2388 over 1688?

Note here, the 1688 is equipped with an AFX rotor and turned up about an extra 20 hp. Grain loss at faster speeds in high yielding rice limits my capacity now.

I need another 20% harvesting capacity on average. Will the 2388 atain this or will I need to look bigger?

Not sure in rice production since I have no experience, however in dryland 100 Bushel wheat we have seen at least that much. We do a machinery share within different farm entities. Whenever we adjust machinery hours we always adjust the 2388 as 1 and 1/3 of a 1688. Both machines have been turned up and both have AFX rotors. It should work well and happy harvesting!!
