Redesigned Corn Head
Corn head improvements for Claas of America's self-propelled Jaguar forage harvesters include new shielding for easier maintenance and new fingers for safe transport of stalks.
New bidirectional clutches in the corn head's rotor gearboxes allow each disc's clutch to work in both forward and reversing operation.

High-Capacity Wheel Rakes
The crop-driven 12- and 14-wheel WRX wheel rakes, from Vermeer, Pella, IA, boast raking widths extending up to 24' 8" and 28', respectively.
The rakes also feature Duraball Wheels, with a double-tooth rake wheel configuration that reduces the sharp bends required and designed into single-tooth setups. That reduces wear, tear and replacement costs.

Conditioner Roll Opener
MacDon introduces a conditioner roll opener for its 2003 Model 722 hay conditioners that mount to its auger headers. The opener engages with a flip of a switch, permitting the operator to unplug the conditioner without leaving the cab. A hydraulic cylinder opens the rolls, allowing the plug to feed through. Rolls then automatically resume their original position.
