Adapter Helps Mount Older Heads On Newer Deere Combines
To demonstrate Deere's 9000 series combines as soon as possible when they were first introduced several years ago, salesmen at Ernie Williams Ltd., a north central Iowa Deere dealership, needed to use headers that fit on previous models because the new combines arrived before the new headers. To do that, they designed an easy-to-use two-part adapter that fits on the combine's header drive shaft and the driven shaft of the head.
  Tim O'Connor, representative for the dealerships, says the adapter worked so well, they decided to make it available to Deere combine owners. No modifications are needed to either head or combine, except on the $9,550 walker model. "You just slide the adapters into place, mount the head on the combine, and go," he says.
  The two piece adapter kit sells for $385. You can order by phone or online.
