30' Forage Header

The Claas Orbis 900 header stretches forage harvesting to 30'—handling 12 rows of a 30"-row crop with a single pass. A V-shaped crop flow funnels the crop smoothly from the head into the forage harvester. Large drums on the end move the crop to the center and create a windrow effect as the crop enters the harvester, resulting in higher chop quality and fuel efficiency. Drums keep outside rows on each end away from their uncut neighbors, lessening cob loss. The Orbis 900 folds flat for transport. Contact: a Claas dealer; www.claasofamerica.com.


High-Capacity and Advanced Hydraulic Features

The hydraulic-drive, drag auger–style Demco 1350 grain cart provides 1,350-bu. capacity and gives the operator improved grain-unloading visibility with its forward-unloading auger. The 22"-diameter unloading auger extends out and forward 92" ahead of the box. This cart's patent-pending pendant grip control and hydraulic block allow one remote outlet to perform three cart functions: auger fold, adjustable spout and auger flow gate. The cart is available with oscillating tracks or dual tires. The austempered cast hitch fits a Category 3 or 4 hammer-strap tractor drawbar. Price: $83,595.

Floating Draper Header

Gleaner, Massey Ferguson and Challenger combines can now use the flexible DynaFlex draper header. Available in 30', 35' and 40' lengths, it has a 41"-wide draper conveying system that allows the crop heads to face the same direction, improving crop flow, feeding and threshing. A flexible cutterbar design cuts the crop close to the ground without gouging the soil. The automatic hydraulic header height control uses four potentiometers on the 30' header and six potentiometers on the 35' and 40' headers to relay ground contours to the combine, ensuring the closest cut. Compatible with 2003 AGCO combines and newer. Contact: www.agcoiron.com, www.masseyferguson.com and www.newfromchallenger.com
