I'm thinking about trading for a used Drago corn head. Any suggestions on what to look for.

What are the pros and cons of these heads and is there anything I should know before trading.

We had a Drago folding series 2. To say we were disappointed with it is a huge understatement. An ear would get caught at front of stripper plates, & 1/3 of the time reversing the head would not get them out. Not fun have to get out of combine a bunch of times each day to remove an ear of corn. Ran the head 2 years & got $70,000 less than we paid for it. Plus all the repairs & down time.

I have really good luck with my Drago. They run forever. In my experience once they need a rebuild they’re pricey. They might run three times as many acres but the parts cost three times as much. Our other heads are case.

When you talk parts, are you talking about stripper plates, rolls and chains?
