Tried a 7010 last fall in rice and it did a great job. What I am wondering is how doe the cost of maintaining the new style combines compare. If 5 years down the road the rotor quits on my 2388, I can replace most of the parts pretty easy and not for too much money. If the 7010 has trouble it looks like a real money pit. I like the hydraulic drives,but am worried about the cost down the road.
