Introducing the most significant breakthrough in agriculture design for corn heads in recent times. The Split-Flex Corn Head.
The Split-Flex is the latest evolution in the ground breaking area of flex technology. Innovative Ag Technologies, Inc. new Split-Flex corn head will significantly boost your combine’s productivity in high volume, high bushel corn as well as capture low-ear placement on the stalk. It combines IAT’s advanced Split-Flex technology with a unique two-section flex frame that allows each section to simultaneously move while the contour master levels the header to the ground. This action, combined with the extreme flex range, results in a balanced floating action that means picking every row on the first pass regardless of its placement in the field.
The Split-Flex is engineered to allow you to maintain the correct header angle in uneven terrain, thus minimizing what is commonly known as Heeling. Heeling is the term used when the rear of the header is on the ground while the snouts are in the air, causing the header to be un-level. The correct header angle prevents header contact with the ground, minimizing gouging and preventing damage to row units. This innovative design also allows for efficiencies in planting as it reduces time consuming maneuvers around terrace outlets.
Rugged construction assures constant and consistent reliability in rough terrain. The center pivot design eliminates the need for changes to the driveline components. These are all achieved with no changes to the standard features of the head. There are no slip joint, u-joints, auger drives, gearboxes, or slip clutches added. The two 15-foot wings are each powered by two hydraulic cylinders that derive their power from the combine source, thus eliminating the need for additional pumps, valves, and other mechanisms. Each wing is supported by dual 2 1/2 inch hinge pins to provide absolute support. The Delran back plate eliminates daily maintenance and should give season after season of wear and reliability. The only maintenance required on this unit is lubrication of two grease zerks twice a week.
