Kemper's 490 Plus built for high volume, tall, or heavily lodged crops


Kemper is calling its 490 Plus corn header — the largest of the 400 Plus series — the ideal header for high output areas.

“Our 490 Plus is the biggest model we have,” says Kemper’s Christian Kersten, adding that it’s a 12-row drum header built for tall corn, especially in irrigation areas. “So if you have a lot of volume to harvest, then this is a fantastic head.”

The header features a working width of 9.0 metres, and, according to the company, shows its real ability in thin stemmed and heavily lodged crops.

RealAgriculture’s coverage of Agritechnica 2019 is made possible by Brevant seeds. The latest technology, locally tested. Brevant seeds. Seed. Yield. Easy.

“We have fast-turning…knives in the rear, and they are cutting with high speed,” says Kersten. “If you have weeds and dirty fields, no problem, you can harvest it. There are no plugging zones anymore…”

The header’s stalk cutter system helps to chop stalks and stubble, in the fight against European corn borer.

It can be used in maize, sorghum, sunflowers, whole crop silage, oilseed rape, hemp, and more.

The header uses a double folding system to get down to 3.0 metre transport width.
