Header Control Switch for Deere Combines
You can give your 100 or 20 Series Deere combine the same header control found on new 9000 Series combines with a new "thumb activated" header control switch that attaches to the existing hydrostatic control lever.
Designed for combines with automatic header height control or Dial-A-Matic, the add-on kit lets you control header height by thumb without ever taking your hand off the hydrostatic lever. "With simultaneous control of hydrostatic functions and header height control in one hand, operators experience faster response time and less fatigue," says farmer-inventor Mark Burrow, noting that the original height control lever can still be used after the kit is installed. "But operators who've already tried the kit say they seldom do because our system is so convenient and header height changes are smoother and more precise."
The add-on kit consists of the switch,
mounting hardware, wire harness, connectors and complete installation instructions. Takes 1 to 2 hrs. to install, since it simply wires into the existing controls.
"We've tested it on our combine for two years and on four other neighboring farms last fall with excellent results," says Bur-row. Sells for $75.
