we are thinking of updating combines, we run 3 2188's we have lots of small fields and move a lot , we have a hard time keeping farm help that are able to run a combine , so thinking of a 8010-7010 to replace 2 machines , we run smaller heads on our machines b/c of moving so much and can get by not taking off heads in some cases, we run 22.5 and 25 's and 8 row corn ,i know a 8010 needs a 35 and a 12 row, will a 8010 do as much as 2 2188's ?7010?? any one run a 8 row corn head on a 8010?

nothin to do with what you mentioned but if you got a good dealer they say a Lexion will outcut everything. wanted to try one this year but our wheat is so crappy there is nothing to try it on.

I know of people in Iowa running 8010's with 8 row heads. I would also consider running the two combines apart on the smaller fields that are near by and sending the 8010 with a 12 row to the bigger fields to start. Haven't tried it yet but I have enough 5 acre patches that I am considering buying a second much older combine to run with the 9770 on the way. Oh the joys of custom cutting near a city.

I don't think that a 8 row head will keep the 8010 full. I believe a 9120 with a 16 row will do as much as 2 2588's with 8 row heads. However I don't think a 8010 with a 12 row will. It will be close though. If you run a 8 row on it then defiantly no. I used to run 5.5 mph in 200 bupa corn with our 2188 and a 8 row head. I can run 4.5 mph in our 8010 with a 12 row head, so I don't know how fast you would have to run with a 8 row head. If you want to run the 8 row then get a 7010-7120. Or you could run a 12 row on the 8010, and use your 2188 with a 8 row head for the smaller fields.
