Krone North America introduces new adapter kits for Krone forage harvester heads.

Krone North America announces good news for forage harvester owners. Krone has introduced new adapter kits for installing new Krone forage harvester heads on competitive choppers. So even if you do not own a Krone forage harvester, you can enjoy forage-quality-improving benefits from the industry-leading 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.”

“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 agrees that Krone heads lead to improved forage quality.

"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.”
