Today’s new hybrid corn has a great variance in the stalk and cob thickness and changing your deck plate width is time consuming. Newer heads with hydraulic adjusting deck plates are expensive. It does not make sense to trade off the head you have if it is in great working condition. You can update the head you have by adding a hydraulic adjusting deck plate kit produced by VH Mfg. for a fraction of the cost of a newer head.
