F135 vs 1080 convio

Looking for a new header would like to know if anyone ran one last year and how it compared.

I'd like to know too. But did run a FD140 next to a Vario all of last fall and the Vario is every bit as good in wheat and way better in canola, just no flex. Oh and less down-time on the Vario too. But if anyone has input on the Convio I'm all ears, especially on how low it really does cut and how light it is on the ground.

Do you mean Convio or Convio flex?

I can tell you there was a major change up on the ‘18’s, complete end shields, every flex hydraulic cylinder to name a couple of highlights.
So they learned something from from the small run last year.
One anecdotal story, worked great until wheat got snowed, height control struggled after that and he finished with his old MacDon. If you call an FD140 old.
Hope others here used these.
