    Yes it does. I am using my LG turner in my 1588 for the second time. No problems at all

    Did you have to do anything to make it fit? I am about to do the same thing.

    Hi,

    I asked this in another post and someone said it wouldn't fit.
    It will be great if it does, that is what I want to do as well.
    We have 2 1588's and I'm uusing one for a hatcher because it holds high humidity wAAAYYY better than our still air LG.
    I'll have to try it with ours tonight and hope it fits!
    THanks,
    Angela

    I didn't have to do anything to make it fit. Just popped it in and closed the bator lid.

    I'm told that the Hova bator turner won't fit in the LG but I can say for sure that my LG turner fits in my 1588. It's in there right now turning 32 eggs for the past 15 days with no problems.

    My turner is the LG 6200 model.

    ok, I'm backwords now, sorry!

    We have a 1588 turner, so it won't go in our LG, right?

    I'm in a delima now.

    We have 2 1588's w/turners.
    One is incubating now and I had to use the other as a hatcher because my LG I couldn't get to hold humidty over 55% even with bowls and socks and vents in.

    But I have more eggs that came in mail, (thought I'd have the two 1588's and plenty of room)

    But someone gave me a TurnX and its heated up and I am debating if I should put my eggs in it to incubate and hatch them?
    They will be on their sides instead of egg carton and no one seems to have any experience with them so I'm afraid to do it!

    HELP!?!?!?!?!

    Thank you,
    Angela
