Corn Head Cuts In Any Direction
The MDD200 corn head from Mainero is designed for anyone with terraced fields, downed corn, or narrow rows says GBC, the North American distributor. The MDD200 can harvest any row spacing in any direction without adjustments or modifications. Five head sizes ranging from 20 ft. to 33 ft. can be configured to any combine on the market.
GBC says the Mainero works in any direction because the patented stainless-steel snouts gently ease stalks to one side or the other where gathering chains with offset sprockets feed stalks into the head without stress to the corn plant. This third-generation head design has longer and thinner snouts than its predecessors, 60 percent more lugs on the gathering chains, and a new deck plate design. These components reduce grain loss and allow the harvester to work at normal operating speeds in whichever direction itís traveling. Each snout lifts easily for maintenance and cleaning.
The Mainero head has tungsten carbide self-sharpening opposing knife rolls that create an aggressive crimping action to cut and damage stalks so they easily decompose. Deck plates are hydraulically controlled from the operatorís seat for easy adjusting.
Custom mounting kits allow Mainero heads to attach mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic hookups quickly to any model combine. Contact the company for price information.
