The big, tall crop dividers smoothly lift the cob into the machine, perfect to pick up down corn. There’s no crashing and smashing through the gathering chains because of these big dividers. The gathering chains are tensioned automatically and require no readjustment with a special unique sprocket integrated slip clutch. The rotors take the material down with eight sharp and durable tungsten carbide coated edges, easily destroying the maize plant and creating less work for the chopper for low-fuel, low-power results. Across the full width of the rotor, it utilizes the same diameter and speed for smooth feeding and less losses, while big, adjustable intake augers add to Geringhoff’s smooth-feeding performance.
The low-maintenance Geringhoff corn head features a modular drive system that doesn’t require chains or belts. Driven by tough, aluminum gear boxes, these made-in-Germany, low-power drivetrains will help you save fuel and increase efficiency.
The gearbox’s independent integrated slip clutches protect the chopper, snapping rolls, gathering chains and intake auger from overload. Featuring more than four clutches per row, this unique protection system gives customers a reliable machine during the harvest.
The reliable, hydraulic folding strategy and automatic driveline coupling system features a PTO shaft with no need to manually couple the drive components (for all John Deere combines, up to 24 rows, including HillMaster combines).
The Geringhoff head adjusts within seconds to fulfill different crop needs. Take the crop divider design for example which is requiring no tools for adjustment (simply turn a hand wheel). The chain-to-chain distance is also quick-adjustable next to the intake auger variables. The gathering chains tension automatically while the change from corn to sunflower is done with ease. To change the header speed an optional 2- and 4-speed gear box can be ordered.
Geringhoff uses high-quality parts on all around. Instead of connecting its row units with a continuous driveshaft, these headers feature row-unit gear boxes connected via Centaflex couplings and Zerol gearing between each gear box. They take stress out of the driveline and ensure reliable harvesting. Geringhoff protects its rotors and knives with tungsten carbide steel to reduce wear for durability. The proven design with its special coating reduces wear parts costs for the customer dramatically. All Geringhoff corn heads are equipped in base with these specifications.
