Massey Ferguson DynaFlex 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.
Crary Air Reel The Crary Air Reel is a patented reel system equipped with high-velocity air. The Air Reel replaces the factory reel and adds the benefit of air while keeping the header more compact, providing better visibility. The constant stream of high-velocity air quickly feeds crop back to the auger, eliminating bunching and increasing the number
Demco 1350 Grain Cart 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.

New Holland CR9060 Combine New Holland flexes its harvesting muscle with the introduction of the CX8000 Series and CR9000 Series combines. The three models in the CX8000 Super Conventional Series (CX8070, CX8080 and CX8090) range from 322 hp to 400 hp.The combines use a patented rotary separator that separates nearly all of the grain before it reaches the straw walkers. The feeder and header reverser system can be operated either forward or reverse independent of the threshing unit, allowing the operator to work the slugs into the cylinder in a controlled manner. The 21' or 24' overheadstyle unloading augers move grain from the 295-bu. or 330-bu. tank at a rate of 3.2 bu. per second, which is the fastest of any conventional combine. Base price: $254,001. The CR9000 Series (CR9040, CR9060 and CR9070) employs New Holland’s Twin Rotor design to speed separation, boost grain quality and maximize capacity. The three models have turbocharged six-cylinder diesel engines that range from 305 hp to 400 hp.
Killbros 1950 Dual Auger Grain Kart The Killbros 1950 dual auger grain cart holds 1,100 bu. and unloads 500 bu. per minute.

The horizontal auger features sliding gates and hinged cleanout doors for uniform unloading and complete cleanout. The hydraulic flow indicator helps the operator control the metering of grain. The double #80 roller chain provides positive drive control. The 1950 is also available with a rollover tarp, scale package and chain oiler. Price: $35,470.

John Deere 7760 Self-propelled Cotton Picker The 7760 self-propelled cotton picker boasts nonstop harvesting. As the turbocharged 500-hp engine powers the machine through the crop, an accumulator, a module-building unit and the on-board carrying capacity of a built module coordinate a continuous cotton harvest. The picker builds a round bale and wraps it in a plastic cover—a change from the rectangular bales and tarps in traditional harvesting systems. The ability to build the module on the harvester eliminates extra equipment, such as boll buggies and module builders, and labor. Base price: $592,548. The 70 Series combines utilize Big Launch from Big Green John Deere PowerTech Plus engines to muscle through the field, and bullet rotors enhance threshing and separating. The CommandCenter display screen is mounted on the arm rest. It provides yield and moisture information, as well as text messages about calibration, diagnostics and system-alerts.
