Have you ever ran a 2188? Guys please dont jump on me,I'm not trying to bash the red brand but the 2188 that I ran two years ago was the biggest dissapointment in a piece of machinery that I have had in a long time.It would not feed thick rye in no way shape fashon or form.After fighting it two days and digging out the feederhouse in 100 degree heat because the electric reverser worked only when it wanted to I parked it and finished the rye with my Fords. I was running it for my neighbor trying to help him out and we tried everything to get it to go but it just didnt happen.If you think you have electrical problems now wait till you get one of these--everything is electric.He is constantly having the Case-I.H. man out there to work on it.In my opinion the 1460 is a lot easier to work on and get around to smaller fields.My thinking would be spend the money to get another good 1460 which will cost a lot less than the 2188 and that way you have a backup if the one goes down.If everything is going good and you have enough to cut hire someone to run the other 1460.In my little custom harvest business I have come to the reality that newer is not always better.When me and my father climb down off of my two Fords at the end of the day we are both tired from pulling levers all day and eating dust because the cabs arent as nice as the new machines but I can sleep at night knowing that if something breaks down I can fix it myself no matter what it is.You asked about acres through a machine--We have combined over a thousand acres of wheat and 600 acres of irrigated corn so far this year with the two machines and still have 200 acres of soybeans and 300 acres of sorghum to go when they get ready.I know several people that run the 1440-60 series machines and they are very dependable,you just need to go over them before the season and fix anything that is questionable.By the way there was a guy with a 1440 cutting his rye right up the road from where we were fighting with the 2188 and he had no problems cutting rye that was just as good as the rye we were in.
