Sunflower Kit For Corn Heads
New "sickle section" conversion kit lets you harvest sunflowers with your corn head, says Wayne Veeder, Litchfield, Neb.
A sickle section bolts onto the right hand stripper plate for each row, and a wooden guide is placed behind the left hand gathering chain to force it farther out over the snapping rollers. As the sunflower stalk reaches the rear of the gathering slot, it runs into the stationary sickle section which cuts it off. The head falls into the cross auger and is fed into the combine.
"It has no moving parts to wear out or replace," says Veeder. "You can convert each row from corn to sunflowers in less than 15 minutes. I specifically designed it for Deere, International, and New Holland combines, but I think it would work on any brand combine."
Sells for about $100 per row.
