ANY CROP, ANY TIME, ANY WHERE
A wide selection of high-capacity windrow pickup heads, corn headers and row-independent headers make FR harvesters a versatile tool for handling multiple different crops. And a simple header hookup system makes changing them fast and easy.
EASY-ADJUSTING HEADERS FLOAT OVER FIELDS
The FRs have a standard lateral float feature that allows headers to follow ground contours and protect them from damage. Unlike competitors, the lateral float feature is built into in the forage harvester itself. This enables the lateral float feature on any header, eliminating the need for expensive header tilt features on each individual header. An optional in-cab hydraulic lateral float system is available. Optional sensor kits are available for larger corn headers to automatically adjust them to ground contours as they help keep a consistent stubble height.
QUICK, SIMPLE HEADER HOOKUP
Switching between headers is easy. One hydraulic quick-release block can be hooked up even under pressure. The latch system includes a handle, so no tools are needed. The PTO is easy to reach and there is no need to crawl under the machine.
SHORT ROTATION COPPICE HEADER
WOODY BIOMASS PRODUCTION READY
This header transforms the FR Forage Harvester into a single pass, cut-and-chip harvesting system for short-rotation woody crops. The resulting woody biomass is used for the production of biofuels and traditional wood and fiber products. Large, quarter-inch-thick, high speed, carbide-tipped saw blades cut cleanly and quickly through tree trunks. Next, two slow-turning vertical gathering towers feed the severed trunks into the horizontal rolls that, in turn, feed the trunks butt-end first into the massive cutterhead. In addition to working faster than other harvesting methods, the 130FB also leaves clean stubble for maximum regrowth.
