Stalk Stomper Protects Tires
He explains that Stalk Stompers attach to the header, using the same bolts that hold the snapper roller gearbox. A heavy-duty tension spring keeps the 8-in. wide plate flat on the ground, leveling the stalks directly in front of the tire. You set the height by first lowering the head to normal operating height, then setting the Stalk Stomper's height using an adjustable chain.
Foster reports that in last year's testing, muddy field conditions didn't cause any plugging or other problems with the device.
Stalk Stompers are available for Deere and International corn heads and will be available for other corn heads in time for corn harvest this fall, says Foster. They sell for $122.50, each.
