It's a 2600 series head. 2600 is the chopping line of heads, folding is available only on the 8 row model. The 6 row and 12 row are rigid.
There are only so many ways to do things? Then why do Case guys keep complaining because Deere has a "similar" rotor? J/K guys of course I understand this being a tech guy... there's only so many ways to skin a cat or cut a combine for scrap.
At least the case engineers were thinking when they came up with their design and included serviceability in the thinking. I can't complain Deere's aren't overly complex but every little bit helps.
What I was talking about was the transition cone it talks about where it speeds the material up as it narrows the "throat" it passes through on its way to the rotor, why bring it all together only to have to expand it to separate it later?
That's what I mean, getting the nebraska test lab to conduct a test in the same field with all the largest machines and comapre for us, so we all know the true size, apples to apples.
I suppose without the extensions being out in the weather the canvas should last a few years, which is good to hear. I like the idea, but I cannot complain about Deere's system, 3 pegs and it's secure at each joint, no way a failure could occur. I'm the better safe than sorry guy here, sorry guys. Case's system is good though.
I see about the cornheads... Folding cornheads are the coming thing I think, only time will tell for sure.
