AGCO’s New Folding Corn Head Reduces Downtime

It takes time to detach a corn head, roll in a cart, and transport the header to another field.

AGCO says its new 3200 Series folding corn heads will eliminate that downtime and keep your combine rolling. The company introduced the new heads at the recent Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa.

In this video, AGCO tactical marketing manager Caleb Schleder says farmers “don’t want to have the header cart. We want to be able to move from field to field efficiently and have that productivity.”

The 3200 Series 12-row folding corn head, which folds over on both sides, is designed specifically to reduce the amount of time it takes to detach and transport the head separately. The 3200 Series also includes a 6-row fixed model. The new heads come with chopping and non-chopping options and are available for Massey Ferguson and Gleaner combines.
