John Deere Introduces 8 Row Folding Corn Head to Harvester Equipment Line

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 05:55:39 CDT

 John Deere Introduces 8 Row Folding Corn Head to Harvester Equipment Line Corn growers operating John Deere group 6 and 7 S-Series Combines now have the option of using an 8-row folding corn head to harvest their crops. The new 608FC corn head helps customers overcome transportation challenges in areas with narrow roads and eliminates the need for header trailers, tow vehicles and related manpower.


Roger Maes, senior marketing representative for John Deere Harvester Works, says the 608FC allows producers to spend more time in the field harvesting and less time in transport or having to remove or re-attach heads when moving from field to field.


“Harvesting with a new John Deere 8-row folding corn head can lower operating costs and allow customers to harvest additional acres per move by not having to transport the head separately,” explains Maes. “That helps contribute to their bottom line and make them much more productive and profitable.”


The 608FC is available in 30-inch row spacing with or without the stalk chopping option. For transport, the head folds quickly to a narrow 10.9-ft. width. Like all 600C corn heads, the 608FC has an improved row unit slip clutch and drive shaft interface for longer life when harvesting today’s more robust hybrids.


“The 608FC is the ideal green-on-green header solution for customers that need to drive down narrow roads to access fields they need to harvest, without having to transport the head separately,” says Maes. “It’s a much more durable, productive and economical option than other folding 8-row headers currently available, plus it’s fully supported by the extensive John Deere dealer network.”
