As part of Geringhoff’s new Independence product line, the Freedom corn head give you the freedom to choose how you plant your corn, and how you harvest it.
As part of Geringhoff's new Independence product line, the Patriot corn head was developed specifically for twin row harvesting in high yielding conditions.
Geringhoff’s TruFlex Razor brings a new level of innovation to draper technology. This is the first draper to combine a truly flexible cutter bar with a flexible frame, and segmented reel.
Geringhoff, a global leader in harvest equipment, announced two new corn heads and a flex draper for row crop growers to solve modern challenges that come with harvesting multiple planting configurations and capturing crop on hilly terrain.
The new Independence product line includes two products that provide corn growers the flexibility to plant in any configuration: the Freedom™ and Patriot™ Corn Heads. The Freedom allows growers to choose optimal corn planting configurations based on their conditions without worrying how they will harvest the crop. The Freedom’s newly designed, angled, two-chain system optimizes crop feeding, maximizes yield retention and reduces crop loss and plugging. Its radical new gear box design can handle row spacing of various planting configurations. Also, its Rota Disc technology offers best-in-class residue processing, which is critical for high population corn.
The Patriot is designed specifically to harvest twin row planting configurations and was developed with Stine Seed Company for these high population fields. Its double-sprocket gathering chain system eliminates the whipping effect when conventional corn heads try to harvest twin row corn. Optional end row augers improve feeding and yield retention.
“These new corn heads are designed for leading-edge growers who are pushing yields to new heights,” said Tosh Brinkerhoff, president and CEO of Geringhoff North America. “Our breakthrough technology has been proven to handle high yields in tough conditions, and gives growers the freedom to farm with more options than ever before.”
The company also introduced a new flex draper for soybean growers. The new TruFlex Razor™ delivers razor-precision soybean harvesting with technological advances unmatched in the industry. It is the first “flex-flex” draper that combines a three-section, flexible frame and segmented reel with a flexible cutter bar. In development for the last five years, the product delivers the closest, most uniform on-the-ground cutting in the industry, even on hilly terrain. Its center knife drive, center belt drive and integrated airflow system minimize losses and improve performance during harvest.
