Don't care how slow I have to go. Just can't go fast enough with a 3 row. I know a 4 row would be just right but the tires wouldn't be in the ditches. Would a 5 row break my 715?

I'd kind of like to see a picture of the 5 row head you're looking for. I think they go from 4 to 6 row. Just as soon as I say there's no such thing, somebody will come up with one.

I have a 5 row 30 inch corn head. I run it on a 1420 IH. Works great!

Case made a 1053 ch I am sure you could make one,it would be nice to use 9or10 series heads as they are lighter than 8 series ,we made an MF 5rn out of a 4rw and it works good. 715 should straddle 3n rows, might have to play with wheel spacing a little, I suspect 4rn on a 715 will run down corn rows thats why MF made offset heads.

Had a neighbor that had a 5 row narrow on a 6620 Deere for a long time.. I never noticed it was a 5 row until he had a auction.. When I mentioned something to my grandpa, he said the owner said a 4 row was too small, and a 6 row was too big.. So he ordered in the 5 row.

As far as I know, it was an actual Deere built unit.. had a model number on it just like the 4 6 and 8 row heads.

Putting it on a 715, I can't help much.. but seems like it should be enough machine to run it, IMO

I went to a auction this summer where a guy had a 963 (6row)on a 715. He had added extra lift cylinders under the feederhouse. He also added a long drive shaft (maybe from a 915) under the feeder house so he could drive the head from both sides of the feederhouse.
Must have been really light in the a** end.
I have also seen 6 row 20 inch heads with plastic snouts (less weight) on 715s.
I think the question is how good is your corn crop and can the 715 handle the volume of material you will put through it

i ran an 843 on my 715 with no problems with the tires getting into the next row. this same head is now on my 1620. the grain tank on the 715 isn't all that big. tough enough with 4 rows to make a round. 4 rows would work the best and easiest one to find.

Ran a 4 row 38 on a 1440 and 1660 for 27 years.

The tires ran on the rows not in between.

Put a set of stalk stompers on a 4 row and run it. That may be easier than trying to find a 5 row.

my owners manual for a 900 ih corn head gave a 5 row head in the models section. i think a 5 row head is built on a 4 row wide frame 40 in times 4 is 160in the tin is differant and some other parts would be also. poly snouts and a 900 or 1000 series head would be alot lighter than an 800 series.

I don't know if a 5 row would, but a 6 row broke the axle tube on my neighbors machine. He then used an axle from a 815.

Your comment about the Deere 5 row head....The 444 head (4 row wide) can be converted into a 543 (5 row narrow) without any frame modification. You need the narrow row center dividers and an extra row unit. Did this for a friend of mine, he went to an 8 row planter and only had a JD4400 combine. He ran this combination for 2 years and then got a JD 9510 and 8 row narrow.

If you can run a head that isn't matched to your planter... you must drive your planter straighter than I do! (or most guys around here, as far as that goes)
