I have looked at the SCH pro drive but wooooh they are pricey!I have heard a lot of people on here say they have a lot of problems out of the Hart Carter style open box the 820 uses but I have ran one for 8 years now and had no problems at all.I have several of them laying around and will probably use one of them for now.I have also looked at the SCH cutting system and havent ruled it out.The adjustable hold downs look great and the whole replacement cutting kit only adds about $300 more than the standard kit.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see I have the sch cutting system on my old 820 but not the wobble box and it worked great in beans. I don't raise wheat so I'm not sure how it works there. Too bad you aren't closer to me or I'd sell you that head for scrap value. Lol it's just setting in the weeds now, I need to do something with it I guess.

Haley, we put a SCH knife/guard kit on our mower conditioner, they are great, and will cut anything, i will do all my machines when they require new guards/knives, did the haybine because the knifeback was wore right out, best thing i ever did, they are more expensive to buy, but in two seasons i've only broken a couple of guards...they're on a Heston 8100 hay head on a swather.

The SCH knives drive very easily too, those rollers make a massive differance... might be worth trying a knife kit before changing wobble boxes.

Been doing something useful so haven't been on the forum for a few days so probably too late. I converted my 820 head to the SCH system and would do it again. Works great. Bought a new IH wobble box a few years ago and it is is excellent condition, so didn't spend extra to purchase a SCH pro drive. Did spend the $ to upgrade to a electrical head control rather than sticking with the original cable system.

Did you go with the roller guides or just wear bars? Were the guards really as easy as they say to put on?(no shimming,just bolt on) I havent bought any parts yet but probably will sometime this next week.

I went with the rollers. In the kit they gave me, the 1st guard (nearest the drive head) didn't have the proper clearance for the last foot or so of the knife assembly. Had to slant one side of the square knife 'backbone" (making it a trapezoid shape) on the driven side which is a separate component that bolts to the main assembly. Easily done with a small grinder. Also used a thin washer on the bottom between the platform and this first guard to increase clearance. Had the correct parts; they just didn't quite work. Not a major issue and you will find it during the final phase when installing the assembled knife. Otherwise it was just a complete bolt-on and no shimming.
