Just bought a 1997 8780 that was retrofitted with a plate off of a black throat to accept newer heads.
My dilemma is that I need a 8 row wide corn head to go on this thing. My current options are a 1999 gleaner hugger head or an 894 Deere head.
After talking to some people at different dealerships each head poses it's own issues of getting it all to work. Does anybody have any experience attaching any of these heads to an XP throat, or any other suggestions of heads that would work better in an 8 wide configuration?
