Stalk Chopping Technology

February 14, 2009 07:35 AM

The Rota-Disc stalk chopping cornhead from Geringhoff eliminates the need for a pull-type stalk chopper. The stalks are cut at a 22 to 28 degree angle and are shredded into 3" to 6" long pieces.

The system is unaffected by ground speed and low horsepower is used during operating. Machine sizes range from 6 rows to 24 rows.
