Re: Geringhoff head on a 2388

Yes. The only Gerringhoff I've ever been around was mounted on a 2004 2388. It was an 8 row head with the rota-disc chopper. They claimed it was only 500 pounds heavier than a CIH head, but it was a noticable weight difference.

Re: Geringhoff head on a 2388

I don't think we were seeing any issues with HP. The chopper part doesn't take too much HP - I think people are saying 2-3 HP extra HP per row.

I did notice that it would sometimes get too many stalks all at once in a row and the knives would stop. In those cases, just stop and reverse the header a bit, and off it goes.
