A-MAIZE-ING HEADERS

by T H WHITE on August 1, 2019

Although maize is traditionally one of the last crops to be harvested, now is the time to be thinking about the kit needed to make this year’s harvest as efficient and profitable as possible.

New Holland has been busy developing an all-new maize header range embracing rigid and flip-up versions in various sizes. The stalk rolls now have four knives for aggressive pulling down of stalks of any size, and the deck plates are electronically adjustable from the cab to adapt to changing stalk and cob size.

Optional rotary dividers further enhance the already smooth crop intake in laid maize crops. The front profile has been redesigned to expose the gathering chains, ideal when working in laid maize, as the stalks are actively ratcheted into the header to ensure they are all collected, as well as speeding up harvesting.

For fine chopping and superb spreading of mulched material, integrated stalk choppers can be fitted. This is perfect for minimum or zero tillage operations. Two in-built header adjustment settings have been developed to ensure your maize header always works at the most efficient setting for you. The rugged lynch pin enables overall point adjustment and this can be further fine-tuned by altering the bolt to achieve specific cutting heights.

The 980CR rigid maize header is available with 5, 6, 8, 12 or 16 rows, while the 980CF flip-up version can be ordered with 6, 8 or 12 rows.
