Here are some picture that I took at the Racine Co. Fair 2008.
Case Ih had sponsored the concert, which was Craig Morgan, and had a few toys there to show off. Rumor had it that Case bought a 1460 from a local farmer and fixed it up. Craig Morgan was going to drive it into the concert and start singing "International Harvestor" but that fell through and he just ran on stage and sang his songs. Oh well.







If you look real close there is a fence and a lot of red beyond it. All the Case Ih employees got to get right up to the stage for the concert




























































And lastly my son and I next to a 335 magnum

The electric sieves are nice but the power folding whopper topper is even better. If you look at the 5th picture it shows the cylinder that adjusts the sieves. The shaft that rises and lowers the extensions are in picture 24-27 and also picture 29. All of the 7088 that were at Sturtevant have the 24' auger according to the locator.

Looks like it folds the fill auger down too.
I wonder where they could have gotten that idea?
On the other hand:

Note convenient steps into the grain bin to greatly aid in service and especially, clean out for seed.

Why are they still using the old style cab on them? Does the AFX cab just look too big and odd on those machines?

Nice pictures. Thats one nice looking combine. Its nice that they have adapted simular styling as the bigger combines.

Case Ih is still using the old cab becuse of price. The 88 series is a "value" priced series. The 20 series have all the bells and whistles like a larger cab and self leveling sieves. That is the reason on why there are two class 7 combines. If you are looking at a class 7 and need a less expensive one the 7088 is your combine, however if you want larger cab and self leveling sieve then you need a 7120.

using the smaller cab because it fits the small bodied machine. and it uses a lot fewer electronics. 8010 cab to large for it

I got to see the 7088 about a week and a half ago at a meeting put on by one of our local case dealers and it is a nice looking machine with some nice features over the 2500 series. The 3 most noticable ones that I really like were....
1) the clean grain capacity was increased 15% to 3450 bpa
2) the grain tank has electric fold that they claim should be water tight also
3) more horse power


It also has a few other upgrades like larger rotor belt to handle the extra ponies, auto feeder house chain tensioner to mention a few, I wish we could adapt that tenioner to our 2300 series we have that would be nice. Overall it is a nice looking class 7 machine that should certainly sell well for case.

I am fairly certain that the grain tank with power fold is not weather proof. Not sure why it is not sealed, but the video that I have seen of it you can see it doesn't seal completely. In Cases defense you can't combine with it folded down so why make it water tight.

I am only relaying what they told us at the meeting, even if it keeps out say 80% (I just choose a figure for arguments sake)of the rain water thats still better than having 100% enter the tank............

I completely agree with you. How many times have you had 3/4 full tank of grain and it started raining when you are on the other side of the field? Is the one on the Lexion weather proof since it is a Eropean combine? Maybe Don would know?

The figure I hear is 95% for Lexion, a piece of weatherstrip would make it close to 100%
However in the context of your example, and I don't think this would be different for any design, the tank needs to be pretty much empty to allow fill auger folding.

That would even help with the mound of grain that you always see on the roof from running on the hills.

It is, after all a very impressive combine. I would hate to see the outcome of seeing a 9120!

nice picture it gonna be a good machine because is a 2588 with more power on the engine two speed on the feeder one single point to put the header, more turning radius like the 7010 and a stonger axle in the front i'm sure we gonna see a lot of that combine next year.

I know that it will be a very popular combine. The class 7 combine is the "bread and butter" size. It took Case long enough to learn that, and now they have two with the 7088 and 7120. They should sell the heck out of them.
