We are starting to think about trading for 8010. Right now we have 3 machines. 2188 and 2 2388's. If we do this we will trade 2 machines off for the on 8010. I know there is a learning curve on these new machines. We will also get a new draper and a new 3412 corn head. Our machines now run perfect we only had 1 hr of total downtime all season. Are we going to be impressed or dissappointed with this machine. The machine we are looking at is a carryover 08 machine

I think you'll love it. Using an 04 8010 this fall that has all the updates. Works great. Pushed 36' MacDon draper that was awesome. Would definitely buy 42' if I were you on an 8010. Also running 12 row 30'' cornhead no problem in 150-250 bpa corn. Just make sure you have at least 1 5/8 bottom sieve and top sieve. Started out with no capacity and realized had 1 1/8 top and bottom. Even better if affordable, use open slat for more capacity.

we traded 2 1680s and one 2388 for 2 2004 8010s this year absoultly loved them. one has 36ft mac don other has 35ft 2020 it will difently be replaced with another mac don. 2208 8rw cornhead was to small but we dont grow enough corn to justify any more cost.

you wont regret the trade at all I had a 2188 and 2 2388s myself this summer, I started by trading my 2388 of on a low houred 05 8010 with a 36' draper, about a month later my dad decided to trade his 2388 on a low houred 06 8010 also with 36' draper. We kept our old 2188 as I need a 30" row corn head and a 22" row corn head in wich I already have and are paid for so I figured I would just stay at home and harvest corn with the 2188 and keep my debt load down. The 8010 is a beast and I am sure glad we made the plunge so far so good, with the internet today one will be in pretty good shape getting tips and pointers from each others experience, just like anything a little learning curve but in time they will be second nature. On thing is it is hard to get back into the 2188 after running the 8010, but thats the way things go. Id say if the deal is right go for it..
