Low Cost Way to Move Combine HeadsNew from May-Wes Mfg., Gibbon, Minn., is a bolt-on attachment that turns any running gear into a low cost mover for virtually all make and model corn, soybean or small grain combine heads.
Priced at $320 per pair, the "Move-A-Head" attachments mount on any new or used running gear. One bolts onto the front bolster and the other to the rear bolster. They're both equipped with an adjustable "angle arm" which supports a 4 in. wide channel iron that runs horizontally the full length of the running gear to support the header. Each bolster adaptor is equipped with a removable back stop which slides off for easy "drive in" loading of the head onto the running gear, then slides back on to secure the row crop or platform head once it's in transport position.
"The beauty of this system, in addition to its attractive price tag, is that the bolster attachments are UPS shippable. We supply the attachments. You supply the running gear and the 4 in. wide channel iron that runs horizontally between the attachments," explains the manufacturer. "After harvest, you can roll the running gear and head through narrow machine shed doors and into tight corners for indoor storage during the off-season."
