So chopping corn heads have been getting pretty popular in the area the last few years. My question is this...what real benefit or advantage is there with a chopping corn head vs one that isn't? The reason is ask is because when I look at a neighbors field with a chopping head from what I can see they're leaving stalks only 2-3 inches shorter than I am with a non chopping head. Not only that but they still come back at some point with a stalk chopper or stumper before planting just the same as I do. So why spend all the extra money and rob that much more horsepower from the combine if it's not going to save me any time or field work in the end?
