I know these are the lastest model combines (i think) But whats the difference beween these 2 combines. This is in general, not specific models.Im not talking hp or anything. I just want to know whats the pros and cons with each different type of combine. Are the 2588 type combines cheaper than the 8010 combines. Please fill me in. Im a john deere man, so i dont know much about case, Thanks

yeah buy a lot... 2588 is a class 6 machine..somewhere around 300-325 hp and the 8010 is a class 8 with 425-450 somewhere around there..

there for 12-16 row corn heads.... 40 ft drapers

u can reverse the rotor and adjust the sieves in the 8010 and they also have different cabs... 8010 is huge and has more visability. also the sieves have a self leveling system that works really good.

good luck.. I think that's the main points

The 2588 internally is basically a STS. All the parts are in the same places and do the same thing. A 8010 has a grain pan instead of bed augers that do some preseparation of the MOG and grain. 8010s have hydraulic spreaders, and a rethresher (returns run through a 'tri sweep processor' and are deposited in the grain pan, not back into the rotor. And the above mentioned self leveling sieves (the entire frame moves both sieves unlike the deere leveling ones that just move the individual sections.

Like neukm says, the biggest difference between the two is the drive systems. The 2588 is a chain and belt driven machine while a 8010 is a CVT and hydraulic driven machine.

FYI - latest models would be the 88 Series (5088, 6088, 7088) and 20 Series (7120, 8120, 9120). 88 Series are the "traditional" belt-drive machines (based on the 2x00 platform), and 20 Series are the CVT machines (new model numbers, but 8010-style).

Last model year for 2500 series was 2008.

Farmertony is right in my book. 8010 certainly was a 40% increase in capacity over my 1688. Know custom kutters who completely dropped 2588's and went to 8010/8120's because of the large capacity increase. Not to mention the all the benefits of less maintaince.

Well the best way to describe an 8010 if you're having a pissing competition with your neighbour is an 8010 in a good crop is half as better again than a 2*88 and put a chaser bin on it and it's almost twice as good
(heard that one day)
