Combine Header Storage Rack
“The grab bars slip over the square tubing on the loader quick-tach frame and grab the headers like the combine does,” says Wampler.
Wampler made the grab bars from 2 sections of 6-in. I-beam steel plates welded to the I-beam sections to grab onto the headers.
The grainhead is stored on top of the rack and the cornhead underneath. Once the headers are stored, the combine is parked in front of the rack.
The deck made of 16-ft., 4 by 6-in. treated lumber sits on end rails of 6-in. I-beam welded to the butt ends of 4-in. steel pipe. The deck sits about 5 ft. off the ground, offering sufficient space for Wampler’s 4-row cornhead underneath.
“The grab bars and the deck are a simple solution to the storage problem,” says Wampler. “We can move the header out of storage and change it in less than 20 min. It works great, and when not in use, the grab bars are easily slipped off and stored.”
