Height gauge for combine headersYou' ll like this simple new combine cutting height gauge. It consists of a fiberglass rod, attached by cable to combine feederhouse.
A 24-in. long spring-loaded cable, connected to the bottom end of the 5/16-in. dia. fiberglass rod, hooks onto the feederhouse. A scale numbered in increments of 4,.8, 12, 16, and 20 in. mounts on the windshield inside the cab. As the feederhouse goes up and down, the fiberglass rod moves up and down the scale, showing you exactly how far the cutterbar is off the ground.
"It takes the guesswork out of setting your combine header. You can see the rod and all of the numbers as well at night as during the day," says Ernest Lokken, inventor.
A la-in. dia. pipe serves as a guide for the fiberglass rod and is screwed onto the cab just below the windshield.
Sells for $69.95 (Canadian) or $59.95 (U.S.).
