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.
