I'm deciding whether to put a 1020 or an 820 head on a 1440.
The 820 will come from Young's in IL. What are the differences, or advantages in a 1020 head. I know the auger is a larger diameter. Will that feed better? I'm familiar with the 820s. I have a 13' on a 715 now. I guess I want to know if the 820 will feed OK across a 20' width. From what I've read about Young's conversion process, they will get a better cut. Any input is appreciated.

I had a 16' 820 on a 1440 then later got a 17' 1020 and now have a 20' 1020 on 2166. If you are cutting beans and need a flex head, the 1020 is WAY better. It's lighter and just flexes better. I'm not sure if all but most 1020 have totally enclosed oil bath type wobble box, hydraulic fore and aft reel adj. Also, if you raise the reel all the way up, it will lift the auger a few inches to aid in clearing out a jammed auger. The snouts are better. To adjust reel pitch, there is only one bolt on left end of header. When you extend reel forward, it goes lower to the ground to help pick up down crop. The 820 reel actually goes up when pushed forward if memory serves correct. All of this is just my 2 no, wait the value of the dollar just went down again, 1.5 cents worth

If you mean poly on the slides, on the underside of the head, I would not have a head without it. I had a 820, and upgraded to a 1020, and no comparison. The 1020 floats and flexes way better than the older head.

the 1020 is a great head compared to the 820. But the yas 820 is just an 820 frame. Everything else is reworked. Had the yas 820 on a 1460 ran beside a 1660 with a 1020. They do everything they claim. Yas head will out cut out feed and out float the 1020 in soybeans anyway.
