I am looking at putting a 21' or 25' draper, 972 MacDon or 1052 CIH on a 60 size machine. Has this been done, and what has to be done to make it feed since the throat is narrowerer? Is the head adapter different to feed a small throat? Or won't it work? Oh and I'm assuming that a 972 and 1052 are the same but not sure.

I had a MacDon 960 on 1660, traded the 60 for an 88 series, didn't have to change a thing on the feeder or the MacDon. I suspect the 972 or 1052 will be the same, but check anyway.

They have an adapter for the head for your 1660 which is all that is needed. You will be impressed if you have never tan a draper head. Like giong from an old 810 head to a new 1020!

FWIW, here's a picture of a 30' MacDon on a 1660. You'll just have to make some adjustments on the MacDon header adapter to make it work on the narrower throat of a 60 if the adapter has never been on a 60 series machine before. The 972 MacDon and 1052 CaseIH should be about the same header.

Thanks guys for the info. The 30' on the 1660 is impressive. Some people underestimate the little rotors, the are threshing sons of guns. I've run 88s and 60s both of course the 88s will eat a 60 but for smaller acres they are just the ticket. Without a big head and a good crop that big rotor is sometimes hard to keep full. Yes I know drapers are the cadillac I ran a 30' 1042 for a summer working on the run.
