Corn Stalk Guide For Plastic Header Snouts
The guide consists of a high-wear plastic bar that attaches to the snout with self-tapping screws. Before the guide is attached, corn trying to enter the head can easily be knocked away as it contacts the idler sprockets. Once you install the new guides, corn will move smoothly into the head without bouncing away, says inventor Joel Kaler, Lidgerwood, N. Dak.
Works on most standard 30, 22 and 20-in. rows. Sets are available for 6 and 8-row corn heads. If your corn head is more than 8 rows, you can mix and match the sets. Each set includes the attachments and screws as well as directions for attaching them. The guide can be attached to metal snouts and to twin row heads (please contact Kaler for additional information).
A 6-row set sells for $899.95 including S&H; an 8-row set for $1,199.95 including S&H.
