Will it handle a 6 row head?

I wouldn't advise it, as the frame isn't much. Mine has a lead-filled front axle, and I won't think of it. Book calls for a 17.5 foot platform too... but I believe I will stick with my 15 ft 820... Besides, in good corn, you can run fast enough with 4rn to make up the extra two rows, I can't make a round in a fairly small field as it is with 4 rows, and that's with a hiniker hopper-topper..

 Picture Why You Dont Want To Try It in reply to Fred Goodrich, 10-13-2010 04:39:13  

Look at the picture and see why you wouldnt want to try it.A 15 ft grain head and 4 row corn head did this to both sides of my 1420.They are built pretty weak.Every 1420 needs a final pulled off so that you can drive some tubing in the hollow axle housing to reinforce it.

I know a guy that tried a 6 row on a 1420 and he said dont even think about doing it.With a 4 row head I could only run 4-4.5 mph in dry 150 bushel corn.

Don't think there is enough combine there to pick it up. It may with a helper cylinder and a bunch of rear weight.

It would probably handle the corn if you went slow enough.
Better check the book to see if they advise picking up a 6 row with the 1420.

Years ago (late 1980's) when I worked at the local Case-IH dealer there was a guy who ran a 6RN head on a 1420. It wouldn't hardly lift the head and he ran it at 3.5 MPH or less. And this was when the corn ran 120-150 bushels per acre.
