I bought a 820 16.5ft head but all the wood is rotten and some of the tines have fallen out. What is a cheap alternative I can't seem to find a parts reel in central Wisconsin, and to repair it all new would be 1000s. I'm pretty good with wood but can the old tines have the rivet drove out and put in new wood?

Just go to Shoup and buy the wooden bats with plastic teeth already on them. The complete kit with new bats and all new teeth is $647.90.

My brother got the wood from menards and the fingers from shoup when he did his head. I dont think he had 300 bucks into redoing the whole reel.

Can you find one of any width? Just cut them off to fit your 16.5

I have rebuilt the reels on three or four John Deere 200 series heads that have the wooden boards with the steel tines. I believe the originals are probably oak, but I have replaced them with treated lumber. Purchased 1" by 4" lumber needs to be ripped on a table saw to narrow the width up some. Treated lumber is probably pine, but I have not had any problems using pine. I sort through the lumber at the retailer in an attempt to avoid big loose knots and splits. In a case or two where I just replaced one or two boards on a head I just drilled holes in the board and bolted the steel tines back on. Where I have replaced all of the boards I have updated the head with the "bolt on" plastic tines purchased through Shoup. A small battery powered impact wrench sure helps to speed assembly. I find it easiest to bolt the boards on the reel and then come back and drill and bolt the tines on. I hold an old board up against the new board and make marks where the holes should be. Then I hold the new plastic tine on top of the mark and use the hole as a guide. The plastic tines need to be tight against the bottom of the board or they will twist. Be careful not to crush the treated pine, it is not as hard as the original oak. The plastic tines are not as strong as the original steel tines. They will flex in extremely lodged beans. The big plus with the plastic tines is that they will not knock out sickle sections like the steel tines if the reel is set to low and the cutter bar flexes up. I generally cover the treated lumber with a coat of black enamel paint. If you run a good number of acres of beans yearly the reel nearly needs painted every year.

I?ve rebuilt a few with new wood. You can use bolts instead of rivets. The little clips can be a pain. You really need to chisel out a little recess for the spring or the metal tines will turn and fall out. Plastic tines are easier on the top of your head when your working on the knife and forget they are there!
