New Extendable Grain Head From DeereDeere & Co. introduced a new extendable grain head. Unlike the new Deutz extension which bolts in place ahead of the existing cutting table (see Deutz report below), the Deere cutterbar slides out to its expanded size in minutes.
"Extending the cutting table increases performance 5% or more. It works especially well in peas, beans, rapeseed, down crops and tall crops," says Karl-Friedrich Hauri, Deere representative.
To extend the table, you simply loosen a series of bolts and back up the combine to extend or drive forward to shorten. "It takes two men just 15 min. to make the switch," says Hauri, noting that at this time the extendable cutting table is not available in the U.S.
