AWS: Advanced Wind-Reel Systems

There is no need to replace your existing factory reel to gain the benefits of harvesting with air. The simple, removable out-front AWS manifold locates nozzles between the reel fingers and is available for all types and styles of headers. Making use of your existing factory reel, the AWS manifold affects the crop ahead of the knife, greatly enhancing wind-reel effectiveness. In dry conditions, where excessive mechanical reel shatter loss is prevalent, the AWS mounts allow the finger reel to be raised out of the crop, allowing the air to continue feeding the crop into the head.

Bestway Retriever® Self Loading Trailer

The Retriever® Self Loading Trailer features a self-contained hydraulic lift system that allows one truck and operator to pick up and transport combine heads (up to 45 ft. and beyond) as well as 3-point mounted equipment (up to 54 ft.) without the need for a combine, forklift or tractor to assist. The Retriever SLT increases the efficiency of farm equipment dealers by reducing manpower and equipment. The operator simply backs up to the head, lifts the load with the head adapter, rotates the load lengthwise, secures load and drives away. Unloading is just as easy, a one man operation. The Retriever SLT works with draper, corn and grain heads and allows servicing of the heads while on the trailer. A low interest lease program is available to farm equipment dealers.

Kaler Farms Corn Stalk Guide

The patented Corn Stalk Guide by Kaler Farms is attached to the snout above the front of the gathering chain and idler sprocket to guide the corn stalks more smoothly past the sprocket and chain to the cutter bar. This helps decrease the shaking and throwing of the ears before they reach the deck plate, putting more corn in the combine and leaving less corn on the ground. Combining in standing rows or in less-than-ideal rows, the operator using the aftermarket attachment will be able to maneuver headlands, corners, and not-so-straight rows more efficiently.

Harvestec 6000 Cornado Series Corn Headers

Harvestec offers the 6000 Cornado series corn headers in 20-, 22-, 27.6- and 30-row spacings from 6 to 16 rows wide. Known for their industry-leading stalk chopping that chops stalks into 2-inch to 3-inch residue pieces while harvesting at speeds up to 7.5 mph. This eliminates extra tillage passes normally required to break down residue from today’s high yielding hybrid corn varieties, putting more money in producer’s pockets. The 8 pinch points on the 6000 series snapping rolls take in less trash and can produce smaller residue pieces than most competitors that just use 4 pinch points.
