MacDon enters the corn header market

A Winnipeg-based farm equipment manufacturer known for making draper headers used on combines and swathers has entered the corn header arena.

MacDon rolled out its new C Series corn header at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa last week.

“We’ve been looking at the corn header market for several years now, and this just makes sense for the company,” says Jason Strobbe, North American marketing manager for MacDon.

The launch of the corn header follows the sale of MacDon to Guelph-based Linamar Corporation earlier this year. Linamar already owned a corn header manufacturing company in Hungary called Harvestec. The Harvestec brand is being discontinued and moved under the MacDon name in North America.

The corn header will be supported through the existing MacDon dealer network, notes Strobbe.

The company says the C Series headers feature a strong, light design, with aluminum gearboxes and a fuel-efficient driveline. Strobbe says the system is also designed to have the kind of even residue distribution required for seed placement the following year.

“The real feature of this machine is its ability to chop and consistently leave a smooth residue field finish in a corn field,” he says.
