I found a NH 892 w/ both heads for $1300. I did a quick look over and it seems to be in what I'd say is fair to average shape for the age. I'll go back later with Dad and then we can do a more thorough exam.

What are the strong points? Weak points? It's obviously heavier than the 790/782, must be the predesessor to the 900?

What should a guy check out on it?

I have had , and continue to have good service from my 892 NH chopper , and only minor problems. And yes forrunner of the 900.I have two choppers and use the 892 to do hay only , as I have removed every 4th knife so that I get a longer chop. Was lucky to get a 792 on a local sale , almost new, less than 200 acers through it, and I use it for corn now. But the 892 worked fine, just wanted the longer chop, and don't have to change heads any more either Bruce

i have worn out 2 used 892s. the biggest problem i had was keeping the reversing gearbox working. parts are vey expensive. otherwise, the usual- wear through the flopper on the spout, wear band in the fan, etc. they are a good heavy duty chopper.

I've had an 892 for about 5 or 6 years, now. So far I've rebuilt the spout and rear auger pan due to the usual cancer in older units, and had to rebuild the clutch pack in the transmission. The biggest issue I have with it is actually the electrical connections, and that's really minor. Change the oil in the transmission fairly often with ATF, and sharpen the knives and set the shear bar pretty tight and it's quite a chopper. Mine sat for quite a while in a pasture for sale when two brothers retired from the dairy business and has taken some work on the corn head, but it's been rebuilt since I got it- it was loose showing some wear in some tin parts, but I have chopped for the past three years or so with ony one chain break on the head drive. It's been a pretty good machine for us so far. By the way, I only gave $750 for it...
