Grain Headers

 

 
LEADING FROM THE FRONT
 
New Holland knows that the harvesting process starts with the crop. How it enters the machine will determine the quality of the harvest, therefore, a vast range of grain headers to suit every type of crop and farm have been developed and built in-house to suit your needs. Headers are available in widths ranging from 6 - 12.5 metres and in a wide range of configurations that can be tailored to match your requirements.
 
VARIFEED™ GRAIN HEADERS: ADAPT TO ALL TYPES OF CROP
 
In order to guarantee optimum harvesting quality and a uniform cut in fields of different crop heights, the Varifeed™ header is your perfect partner. The knives can be adjusted by a full 575mm in their fore-aft position for ideal feeding. The 660mm diameter auger with deep flights provides fast, smooth feeding even in the heaviest crops. Full-width retracting fingers between each auger flight move crop down and under the auger for smooth, continuous feeding. These headers are available in 7.32 - 12.5 metres.
 
HIGH CAPACITY GRAIN HEADERS
 
In conventional farming situations, the traditional high capacity grain headers are perfect. The High Capacity header Features a heavy duty construction perfect for the heaviest crops. The larger 606mm diameter auger and 1150 cuts per minute improves capacity, forward speed and intake volumes.
 
FLEXIBILITY FOR GUARANTEED HARVESTING EFFICIENCY
 
In undulating terrain, the Superflex™ header is the default choice. The flexible knife bed can flex a full 110mm in uneven fields to ensure a close cut and uniform stubble height, and the fully-floating auger with deep flights provides fast, smooth feeding even in the heaviest crops. When combined with 1150 cuts per minute and a hydraulically-driven reel, precise feeding and processing are a given. You can even maintain a pre-set ratio between reel speed and ground speed, so that when ground speed changes consistent feeding is guaranteed.
 
AUTOMATIC HEADER HEIGHT CONTROL
 
The advanced Automatic Header Height Control system is available in three operational modes:
  • Compensation Mode uses a pre-established ground contact pressure that is hydraulically maintained to ensure efficient harvesting of laying or low growing crops such as peas and beans.
  • Automatic Stubble Height Control maintains a pre-set stubble height by using sensors located on the elevator together with the hydraulic header control cylinders.
  • The Autofloat™ system uses a combination of sensors that ensure the header follows uneven terrain and automatically adjusts its position hydraulically to maintain uniform stubble height and to prevent the header digging into the ground.
FULLY INTERGRATED RAPE KNIVES
 
Optional 18 teeth rape knives scythe through matted crops and can be quickly and simply fitted to the Varifeed™ header. Controlled through the IntelliView™ IV colour touchscreen monitor, they guarantee more efficient rape harvesting. When not required, they can be stored in the dedicated compartment on the header itself.
 
DUAL STREAM™: ADVANCED STUBBLE MANAGEMENT
 
The Dual Stream system fits directly onto 7.62 - 10.67 metre high capacity and Varifeed™ headers. The standard header continues to cut the upper section of the crop, and the second bank of self-sharpening knives are set at normal stubble height, to cut the intermediate ‘double stubble’ section. This chopped material is then uniformly spread across the entire cutting width of even the largest headers. Dual Stream technology can boost overall capacity by up to 15%, whilst reducing fuel consumption by up to 15%.
