I would like to get a Geringhoff rd830 for a 1993 R62 that I am looking at. Anybody out there run this setup? The combine has the v8 Duetz with twin turbos. Do I need to swap out the variable header drive for a direct or will the factory setup hold up? Give me the good and the bad, I would like as much info as possible before I spend $30000+ on a corn head. Thanks.

We ran a pc830 on our N6 for a few years, then switched over to 1998 R62 and ran it a year or two. Kept everything original, except had to gear down head. It would still pull stalks through so fast ears would hit deck plates and bounce out. Never had problem we traced back to head. The newer head should take less power than the PC series. We now run a Harvestec 830 head. We wanted to be able to shut off chopping part so we could chop stalks for bedding.
