The 600C Series Corn Heads have been redesigned to improve capacity and productivity during harvest. Some of the new features include:
  • Five models are available for operators to best maximize the productivity and efficiency of their operation.
  • The 600C Corn Head now features chopping disconnect on all StalkMaster™ corn heads. Each row unit on the StalkMaster corn head has a shifting lever on the right side of the chopping gearcase to turn off the chopping functionality.
  • The 600C Corn Heads have been redesigned to eliminate the prop rod used to lift and lockout row-unit covers during service. The lift assist is a gas strut to assist in raising the row unit out of the way.
  • The height sensors are moved to the outer points and forward on all 600 Series Corn Heads to provide improved ground following capabilities and increase harvesting speeds.
  • The idler sprockets were redesigned to distribute chain load and increase chain life. The new idler bearing contains a triple lip seal plus an additional sealed outer steel shroud for greatly increased bearing protection.
The 600C Series Corn Heads will meet and exceed changing customer needs, enabling operators to be more productive. This is the future of John Deere harvesting.
