"See-Through" Cob Saver For Deer Combine Headers
Deere Combin "Our new see-through cob saver for Deere
corn headers bolts over the feeder auger and keeps it from throwing cobs out of the header. It's made from expanded metal so you always have a good view of the auger and folds up out of the way for easy access to the auger," says Jason Kubassek, an Ontario farmer and machinery fabricator.
Kubassek says lost cobs are a problem on some of the smaller, newer Deere corn heads, especially at higher auger speeds. "On header widths of 12 rows or more, Deere's own cob catcher is standard equipment. But for smaller headers you have to order one from the company at a cost of about $600 and it's made of sheet metal so you can't see through it." The cover is installed by removing two bolts at the side of the feederhouse opening and replacing them with eyebolts. Then you clamp the cover onto the frame and hook a couple of turnbuckles into the eyebolts. The turnbuckles allow you to adjust the distance between the cobsaver and auger.
Sells for about $375 plus S&H.
