How much horsepower would you need to run a NH 782 with a hay head? Any info would be great, thanks, J

I think it depends on how big the windrow is. We've got it's big brother the 892, and this was our first season with it. We only have a 100 HP tractor on the front which is much smaller than it can handle, so it's a matter of ground speed to work the tractor. Is it 540 or 1000? I would think that if the knives are set up properly you should have no problems with even 80 on the front, or less with a smaller windrow. From what I have experienced so far with our 892, they're pretty easy running machines.

The benefit of a smaller than capacity tractor, is it's very hard to plug it up. The tractor bogs down long before you get close to plugging.

Thanks, they were 540rpm, but I don't think my 56 hp tractor
would run one, may as well look for a flail chopper, or cut and
chop, my father in law has a gehl one and he runs it on his
56 hp tractor.

I guess I don't know how small can run it, but if it can run a gehl, I would think it could run a NH as well. Just having the knives sharp saves a ton of HP vs. running with super dull knives. Really easy to sharpen on these choppers too. I was able to touch up the knives and reset the shear bar in the field while waiting for empty wagons. Took all of 5-10 minutes.

Used to run a 782 with a Cockshutt 50 in Corn. Flat land with a chopper box behind it. It was about all that tractor wanted .

We had one, it was too much for an 80hp 4030, but the 100hp 4230 was about right, then we put a 4955 on it and it just toyed with it. But I wouldn't want less than 100hp.
