August 24, 2015 05:03 PM

The time is near to start prepping the combine for harvest. It's essential to have the combine in top shape in order to move quickly from field to field. To help farmers maximize every minute, John Deere releases the 612FC folding 12-row corn head.  

The 612FC folding 12-row corn head features:

  • Configuration for 30" spacing
  • Improved row unit slip clutch and drive shaft interface
  • Provides up to 30 acres more per day (versus traditional eight-row)
  • Provides up to 6 acres more per day (versus traditional 12-row)
  • Reduces operating costs by 15%

  I guess you can call it the best when you piggy back off of other ideas to make it your own. Thanks (Case IH Quad Track) and (Capello, Drago and Geringhoff Folding Corn Heads).

  Can you expand on the point about reduction of operating costs by 15%? Seems like a bit of a stretch.
