Re: PERFORMANCE WITH A 6088 IN 200+ BU CORN 8 ROWS

I think it depends on variety and moisture. A few years ago we were getting upwards of 5.5 in some fields on corn in the low 20's with a 2388. Have had a hard time getting there since then with 2588 and 6088.

I really don't see being able to go that fast in that kind of corn with the 2366 we ran about 2.5-3 i dont know what the 5088 will do?

Really???? Are you serious??? So the 6088 won't do what a 2188 will. Our old 2188 with a 8 row 1083 in 200+ bupa corn would do 5-5.5 mph. Sucks that they went backwards.

200 bushel corn 5.5 some 6.0 mph. Rotor in slow and 380 rpm's I think. 24 moisture some 26 in there. It handles it great till I unloaded. I couldn't see a reason to slow down........ 6088 is anything but a step back.

I've got sum video of shelling corn with a 2588 a few years ago. The header was a 12 row 22" head, corn was good and unloading on the go all day at 5mph+. If my pc lets me put it up i will.

Either you guys are liars, Im a pi$$ poor combine operator, our dealer sucks, or the red machines we been getting are bunk, cuzz none of our 2388's went over 4-4.5 with an 8 row unloading on the go in close to 200 bu, 15-18% corn, anything wetter than that was slower.

And ya all know what our 8010 did (didn't) do for capacity's. Same deal as above for answers.

Im willing to settle for a little of all the above for answers.

LOL...
...Seriously I didn't dump on the go then because we didn't have a grain cart, but I our old 2188 with a 8 row 1083 in 200+ bupa corn would do 5-5.5 mph. Oh I can do 5 mph with our 12 row 2412, and our 8010 in 200 bupa corn. It is running 18-19%.
