Krone North America announced the introduction of new adapter kits for installing new Krone forage harvester heads on competitive choppers.
The adapters allow producers and customer crews that don’t operate Krone forage harvesters to still utilize Krone forage harvester heads.
“Superior forage quality starts with the design and performance of the header. Many farmers have already heard from other farmers that the Krone headers are better-designed to help lead to a better quality of forage coming out the spout,” says Brent Raines, forage harvester product authority for Krone. “With this new Krone head adapter kit for new Krone heads, all farmers can get that improved forage quality, even if they do not yet own a Krone chopper.”
Farmers and custom harvesters are welcoming the option to use Krone harvester heads on their equipment.
“The Krone corn head is a big advantage…the accuracy of your length of cut starts there because it's feeding in uniform…opposed to competitors’ machines, where you see the stalk feeding in all different directions,” says Theo VanderMeulen, harvesting manager of Capstone Ranch in Madera, California.
Jon Orr, owner of Orrson Custom Farming in Applecreek, Ohio has also seen improvements in forage quality with Krone heads.
“In corn, the Krone Easy Collect Head feeds the stalk in butt first. That’s where forage quality starts. The Krone head does a great job,” Orr says.
Features of Krone Forage Harvester heads include designs with Cutting Edge:
- Exclusive Krone corn head design (EasyCollect) feeds the crop consistently into the intake—butt-end first—helping deliver accurate length of cut and Cutting Edge Forage Quality.
- Low-maintenance, cam-less pick-up (EasyFlow) provides consistent crop flow and is infinitely variable so you can adjust to all crop conditions and ground speeds.
