The H424 is a 4WD harvester head with excellent performance, adjustability, control and economy. Durability is improved through hose routing, and ease of service with location of grease points and hinged valve block cover. Greasing intervals are also longer.
New optional HD tilt frame available.
Tapiolan Kone Oy, Finland, had two men testing the new H424 harvester head, both on thinnings and regeneration sites. The seasoned operator with 30 years of experience in the industry was also impressed with the rerouting of the hoses. The hoses were the first thing about the H424 harvester head that caught Teemu Suvela’s attention. They had been routed in a different way compared to the H414, which Suvela had used before.
“Right away, it seemed that the harvester head had a better design than its predecessor. With the new routing, it seemed that the durability of the hoses shouldn’t be a problem anymore,” Teemu Suvela (in the picture) says. Tapiolan Kone Oy put John Deere’s cutting edge H424 harvester head to the test in October.
