Geringhoff MultiCrop Header
The Geringhoff NorthStar MultiCrop header is designed to work in sunflowers, milo and sorghum. It comes with wide, flat snouts fitted with both horizontal and vertical gathering chains, which mount in the middle of the snouts to improve crop flow into the auger. The vertical conveying chains are hydraulically-driven and are said to work especially well in down crops. The crop is transported steadily to the thresher without overloading, reducing trashy buildup, says the company.
The header is also equipped with rotating double knives that gently cut the crop without shaking, resulting in less seed loss.
The header is available in 8 and 12-row models, with either 28 or 30-in. row spacings.
An 8-row model sells for about $60,000.
