If you are updating your case ih corn head have them look at the deck platea..

Part number
84410193...
84410217...

They are a flat plate with the snow mobile scag on the edge. They will be better and less head losses.
Ask your dealer when they do the update if you can get the better plates. This will improve your corn heads performance but it will draw more trash into the combine but you will loose less grain...

The deck plates on my brand new 3206 are tapered down a little toward the row with some round bar welded along the edge to provide a little lip. Dealer says that my head had the part numbers you provided as they are the only ones listed on his parts diagrams. Does what I described sound like what you are talking about?

No.. you have the updated plates... but not the matching part number..

The ones you have are the kit they sent out with chains too. They will be much better then the old modles.

The part numbers i put up are completely flat. With the ski scag on the edge.

Ok. How well do the ones That i have work as far as head loss? Looking at harvesting corn any where from 0-130 bushels per acre due to the drought this year and every kernel is going to matter. I'm really grateful to have adjustable deck plates this year!

Ok. Thanks for the pics. It helped to clear up a lot. When did they start offering these and why didn't my head come with them on? Head was built late winter/early spring. I was hoping to trade my new ones for the updated ones for even money but can't find any parts numbers for the tapered ones I have. The new part numbers are about $90 for one side and $170 for the other side.

Yeah thats right...

They dont really offer them.. they make them but case ih does not offer them..

We did this on a 2208 before our local dealership broke the head changing sprockets.. take an impact rench to the gearbox sprocket.. cracked a bunch of shafts... in season non the less. They were the same plateform as the new holland and new holland has flat plates.

I made a few calls and found them..

I will not let deere, case, dictate to me how i should farm so they can make more money.

Dealer finally confirmed that the part numbers were flat plates but he said I can't trade my plates in for the new plates. Something about that case IH won't take back parts that have been put on a machine. Even though the machine has never been used. I could understand this policy for bearings, u joints, etc. But for deck plates??? So I'm buying 2 plates to try out on one row this year and see how it compares to the other rows.

i decided since mine are brand new that the only way i will change them is when they wear out same with the chains ive never had issues with any aspect of a case ih corn head and my dad havine 800 acres more expierence than i do and he says the only thing he hates it the snout design since it doesnt pick up downed corn that well

We never had that kind of loss with our 1083 either. The newer heads run to fast and there isnt much u can do about it.

Thats why this is a thread about 3200-3400 head, not 1083
