Narrowed Up Header Fits 30-In. Rows
Michael Bryan needed a 4-row, 30-in. header for his Gleaner combine. The Warren, Ind., farmer got it by cutting down a 4-row, 38-in. corn header off another Gleaner combine that he bought from his neighbor.
  "I farm a small acreage. My neighbor hadn't used the header for six years. The conversion took a good deal of time but it paid off. I used it last fall with no trouble at all."
  Bryan says he looked at the header for a long time, trying to formulate a plan to convert the header with the least amount of work. He started by leaving the outside rows intact on the frame, then removed the two inside rows and cut 1 ft. off the frame on each side. He then moved the two inside rows in 4 in. on each side, and moved the outside rows in 1 ft. on each side. He also had to narrow up the snouts by reshaping the tin. Then he welded the frame back together.
