"Intelligent" Corn Head Folds For Road Travel
The most dramatic is that it folds up hydraulically for transport, to just under 10 ft. wide.
The header's other unusual feature is that it automatically adjusts to the size of corn stalks, so fewer ears are dropped at the head. Gathering chains, made of reinforced steel, are self-adjusted by a spring to absorb stress.
The head's low profile also makes it easier to harvest down corn. Options include a built-in stalk shredder and a conversion kit to harvest sunflowers.
The self-adjusting header is available in 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8-row configurations.
