Frontier Equipment offers two wide-row (36-inch and 38-inc) corn heads, the CH2208, eight-row, and the CH2112, 12-row, with new design features to increase harvest capacity in the field. The corn heads feature an 18-inch diameter cross auger for increased crop handling capacity. Reverse auger flighting lessens ear tossing and improves dry-trash feeding. Dual auger strippers also reduce grass, vine or wet downed corn from wrapping around the auger. Gravity guides corn into the lower entrance of the auger bed floor. This stops free grain loss, prevents back feeding and decreases ear damage. Cleanout doors on each end of the corn head minimize time that operators need to spend cleaning under augers.
Rugged gathering chains also feature larger, taller lugs, which significantly improves movement of the corn through the row units. Gathering chains only need to be adjusted once per season, reducing overall maintenance. Adjustable Perma-Glide™ points and deck covers are easy to fold up for better row unit access. This improves serviceability and makes trailer transport safer and easier.
