Hi again. 1999 2388 specialty rotor, kile mfg intake, gordon bars, good transport vanes, airjet chaffers. I have small wires with every other pulled. Cover plates for wheat and soybeans when needed, and keystock and slotted grates when needed. I currently have 4 straight bars all above the first keystock grate. I believe the book shows a small grain combine to alternate the four bars between the first and second grate. This combine is used mainly for soybeans but a good amount of wheat (soon), roughly 80 acres of fescue, and possibly 700 acres of corn. More than likely the new 2588 will be used for corn though. We strive for seed quality as we are growers. If this machine isn't used for corn, should I remove the straight bars? If not, should I leave the four where they are at, alternate them, move them all back, or what? What have you found most successful? Thanks

The kile intake works just fine. It is hard to truly compare as you can't hit a switch and go from elephant ears to an afx version intake. That being said, I am very happy with it and feel it does what is claimed, plus it is the cheapest afx kit available that I am aware of.
