New Holland 980CF Folding Corn Header - 8 rows
ALL-NEW HIGH-PERFORMANCE CORN HEADERS
New Holland has developed an all-new corn header line-up which is designed to perfectly match our combines’ operating profiles. Following extensive field testing, both the rigid and folding versions deliver improved harvesting productivity and reliability. Like combine. Like header.
MODERN CORN HEADERS FOR MODERN CORN FARMING
The upgraded corn header line-up perfectly satisfies the demands of modern corn harvesting to boost productivity and harvesting efficiency. The shorter points better follow ground contours to prevent `run-down’ of valuable crops. The gills direct any loose kernels to the rear of the header, consigning lost cobs to the history books. The replaceable wear strips extend the headers’ lifespan and all points flip up on self-supporting gas struts for easy cleaning and maintenance. Modern corn headers for modern farmers.
EFFICIENT HARVESTING IN DOWN CROPS The front profile has been redesigned to expose the gathering chains. This is ideal when working in down corn, as the stalks are actively fed into the header to ensure that all cobs are collected, as well as speeding up harvesting.
DEPENDABLE OPERATION Regardless of size, New Holland corn headers are designed for top harvesting performance in all crop conditions. The stalk rolls have four knives to aggressively pull down stalks of any size, and the deck plates are electronically adjustable from the cab to adapt to changing stalk and cob size. Optional rotary dividers further enhance the already smooth crop intake in down corn crops.
BEST-IN-CLASS STALK CHOPPING
For fine chopping and superb spreading of mulched material, integrated stalk choppers can be fitted. This is perfect for minimum- or no-tillage operations. The cutting blades are situated underneath the header, and maximum flexibility is guaranteed thanks to individual row engagement. Customers agree: New Holland truly offers a ‘best-in-class’ solution.
FOLDLING OR RIGID: THE CHOICE IS YOURS
Rigid headers are available in 6-, 8-, 12- and 16-row configurations to enable you to choose just the right size for your fields and customers. 30-inch row spacing are perfect for the most intensive operations requiring extensive road transport and field-to-field changes.
EFFECTIVE CORN HARVESTING
New Holland knows that it is the small things which can make an enormous difference when it comes to efficient harvesting. That is why a 360° vision of corn header development was taken into account when designing the new header. Extensive testing was carried out in Europe, North America and South America to ensure that the new generation of corn headers is right for your farm.
FLEXIBLE, DURABLE POINTS
The islands and dividers are produced using advanced rotomoulding techniques and are exclusively constructed of plastic. This means that they can, literally, take a battering and bounce back to their previous shape. In addition, their polyethylene construction absorbs impact, so the ears don’t bounce out of the corn header. The result: lower losses and higher capacity. This is perfect when working in the harshest conditions, as you’ll save both time and money.
REDESIGNED FENDERS ENHANCE PRODUCTIVITY The header fenders have been completely redesigned to improve your profitability. We moved the powered auger divider to the outside of the fender which reduces ear loss in standing corn. Why? The cornstalks are safely gathered into the header and do not fall over the edge. Even if you’re not using the powered divider, the concave shape of the fender catches any falling ears and transfers them into the header for processing.
CORNROWER SYSTEM: UNIFORM ONE-PASS SWATHING OF CORN STOVER
The integrated Cornrower system for New Holland corn headers funnels the processed cornstalks into a bank of knives which deliver a super-fine chop of all stalks. This material is then directed into uniformly dense windrows for subsequent baling. Swaths are free from dirt and stones and also contain any lost kernels. The result: a quicker drying stover and up to 15% denser bales, which have higher nutritional and combustion profiles. The system can also be deactivated when traditional spreading is desired.
