AutoTrac™ RowSense™ increases machine efficiency while harvesting corn

Harvesting corn with RowSense

AutoTrac RowSense is a solution for corn growers that increases machine efficiency and reduces operator fatigue. AutoTrac RowSense offers operators the same high levels of convenience and productivity experienced in other crops or with AutoTrac-equipped tractors and self-propelled sprayers.

The AutoTrac RowSense increases machine efficiency by:

  • Maintaining efficiency through changing crop conditions
  • Reduce grain loss
  • Improve acre-per-hour combine performance.

Intermeshing stalk roll options for premium stalk processing

The intermeshing knife stalk rolls are the best equipment when the typical harvesting condition is wet corn and using the StalkMaster™ stalk chopping option.

Customer Value:

  • Majority of stalk material will be sized at 15.2 cm (6 in.) or longer to provide soil protection from wind and water.
  • Designed to harvest with low power consumption for high performance and low fuel consumption.

Manufactured of highly durable material for longer wear life.

Folding capability speeds transport between fields

Each of the outer two rows of the 608FC fold hydraulically from the cab to allow for narrow transport width during road transport between fields or for storage.

Customer Value:

  • Eliminates the need for header transport trailer, reducing the cost of total harvesting equipment.
  • Reduces nonproductive harvesting time used to mount header to a transport trailer and reattach it to the combine at the next field.

Opposed stalk roll options for premium stalk processing

The opposed knife stalk rolls are the best equipment when the typical harvesting condition is dry corn and using the StalkMaster™ stalk chopping option.

Customer Value:

  • Majority of stalk material will be sized at 12 inches or longer to provide soil protection from wind and water.
  • Designed to harvest with low power consumption for high performance and low fuel consumption.

Manufactured of highly durable material for longer wear life.

 

StalkMaster™ row-unit enables stalk chopping

The StalkMaster Corn Head chopping system allows operator size and chop corn stalks while harvesting, eliminating second-pass operations and saving time. StalkMaster is available on 606C, 608C, 612C, 612FC, 616C, and the 618C Corn Heads.

Customer Value:

  • Uniform sizing of corn stalks to speed decomposition and also providing for soil protection from wind and water.
  • Eliminates the need for the second-pass operation to size stalk residue, saving time and expense.
  • Can be equipped with either intermeshing or apposed knife stalk rolls to match the agronomic needs of individual growers.
  • Features a quick, no tools, disconnect feature that provides producers the flexibility to chop, or not, when desired.

Hydraulically adjustable deck plates

Hydraulically adjustable deck plates allow the operator to adjust the deck plate opening on the go in order to match changes in stalk or cob size and crop conditions.

Customer Value:

  • Minimise material-other-than-grain (MOG) intake providing improved separator performance.
  • Reduce ear loss to maximise potential yield.
  • Minimise premature shelling and kennel damage proving sample quality.
