We ran razor beaters instead of the Case IH stone trap beaters in our 3 2388's and found a great improvement. We have traded for 7088's, does anybody run them in a 7088? is the Case IH beater improved in the 7088? I'm thinking that would be the first mod I would do, along with a silencer kit.http://www.razorrockbeaters.com/map.htm

Pierre: What crops did you harvest with your 2388's. I have a 2377 that I run a 30' draper on, I never have feeder issuses in soybeans but in heavy wheat the stone trap plugs. Will the razor help with feeding in heavy wheat and what style should I use, the smooth blade or the one with teeth? And did you have any issuses plugging the rotor now that it feeds so much more into it?

We harvest Wheat, Canola, Field Peas and Barley. We used the serrated bars on ours and that worked great till we tried harvesting wheat in the snow they were to agressive and would wrap. I don't remember pluging the rotor till we got into extreme conditions late this fall.

RGP When we ran the demo 7088 against our 2388's it was about 20% more capacity in canola yet it seemed to plug in the feeder more than the 23's with the razor beater.

Thanks Pierre, I take it you think the razor would be a good investment for the 7088's also, I've never heard of this beater and you have my attention, because canola is a sore spot in the feeder on these combines any improvement would be welcome.

RGP.

I was at Grand Island this week and was told that there is no point in installing a chip to increase the HP on a 7088 without installing a razor beater type of stone trap beater and they are looking into putting this type of beater in future machines. Therefore they must realise that its a bottleneck on these machines and would be a great improvement as I have witnessed on our 2388's.
