BrentinND 120004 103 2388 and 480R either
2388 and 480R
2003 2388 with a 30' 1010 and a 2002 480R with a 42'
Honeybee. I own the 23 and was demoing the Cat, both are
fantastic machines.
Re: 2388 and 480R
An extra 12' don't sound like a whole lot until you look at
them side by side. The Honeybee head handled very well even
in my rolling terrain.

Re: 2388 and 480R
You've got some incredible pictures. Have any of your
soybean and corn harvest? Once again very nice pictures.
Would you consider trading the 23 in for the CAT?

Take care,

Re: 2388 and 480R

Thanks for the comments, it is very appretiated I have
always enjoyed taking farm pics and have just recently found
this site. I enjoy sharing my pics.

Actually we have been thinking very seriously about trading
in our 2388 on a Cat. If I do i would prefer to go to the
580R. The biggest issure has been the $$$$. In wheat the
480R was dumping 2 hoppers to the 23's 1, but we are looking
at almost twice the $ also.

As soon as i can get into the corn i will definately post
the pics, will be using the 2388 and i bought a 12 row 30"
Cat corn head this yr. Should make for some intresting
pics! Thanks again!

Re: 2388 and 480R
Very nice pictures indeed. Where abouts are you located?
Have you been watching and listening to some of the horror
stories about the 8010 afx? I'm in Oregon, our nearest
lexion dealer is over 5 hours drive away. I've never had the
chance to see the lexion in action. Sounds like you are
somewhat impressed though. I cant wait to see your pics in
corn harvest. Sounds exciting.:-D
Re: 2388 and 480R

I am located in central ND, you and I talked once on Marv's
site, I was having troubles with returns and not being able
to clean up my wheat sample. I want to thank you now for
sending me all those pics of your combine, that is an
excellent design for the return. I always said a 2388 has
the same return on it that a 914 did, which is fine in corn
and beans, but tough barley and wheat we need it larger and
heavier. How was your crop out west? Our early season
crops were average to a little above, but our fall crops
took it hard, cold all summer, Aug 20 frost. How is the
sprayer coming? I have a brother that lives in western
Montana, if i run out to visit him this winter i will have
to drop you an email, I would love to see your 1680 and
sprayer chassis up close. Take Care, hope ya have a good
