Anybody have trouble braking the knifeheads completely off. We have broken 3 in 3 years. When we turn the belt manually the sickle runs smooth. might get a good welder to try to bulk up the 2 welds on the knife head

We had this several years back after we spent a few dollars fixing up a series 2 flex head. We replaced the skid shoe under the wobble box and we started breaking knifeheads, 3 in one field of wheat. Turned out to be the shim washers weren't just right and the knifehead bolt would make the slightest contact with the new shoe and snap it off. Hope this helps.
