To match up with the new S Series combines, John Deere is introducing the 600 Series corn heads, including the company’s first 16- and 18-row heads.

The series offers five models with various row spacings:
 
Model             Rows               Row Spacings
606C               6                      30-, 36-, 38-inch
608C               8                      30-, 36-, 38-inch
612C               12                    20-, 22-, 30-, 36-, 38-inch
616C               16                    30-inch
618C               18                    20-, 22-inch
 
The 600 Series StalkMaster heads have row-unit chopping disconnects that allow the chopping feature to be disengaged on-the-go, as well as improved header height control, which senses farther forward and on outer rows.
 

 
For customers wanting a flexible-draper platform, John Deere is introducing the new 600FD HydraFlex draper, which is available in 35- and 40-foot models. Flexible draper technology allows more productivity and faster ground speeds, up to 10 mph, when harvesting soybeans.
