The Kemper headers with the ‘big’ drums are specially developed for high-yield maize crops with plant heights of over 4.0 m and all row spacing such as 38 inches (96.5 cm). Working width vary from 4.5 to 9,0 m
Wide range of applications: Maize, sorghum, sunflowers, whole crop silage, oilseed rape, hemp, pampas grass, etc. Two mechanically driven crop dividers for heavily laid crops, height adjustable crop lifters.
The machine is folded hydraulically to a transport width of 3 m. The transport guard is fitted with flashing lights and position lights. When folded, the cutting units may partially cover the headlamps on some self propelled forage harvesters. It may be necessary to re-position the headlamps to conform with the prevailing highway regulations. Counterweights must be fitted in compliance with applicable government inspection survey regulations
Row independent cutting system with high speed cutting rotors and freewheel mechanism. Cuts across the entire cutting width by means of enclosed saw type rotor blades with replaceable segments. Fast rotating cutting rotors also cut under heavy circumstances, for example, weeds or whole crop silage.
Tungsten carbide coated saw type blades, manufactured with quality certification, self sharpening, lower load placed on clutches and transmissions. Available as a service set.
The big drum machines range features special shaped cleaners. The sharp edged maize stubble is broken up by the cleaners placed under the cutting rotors. This not only protects the tyres of the forage harvester, but also speeds up the decomposition of the stubble.
The Pro series from Kemper now have a new patented tooth shape with a ‘claw’ that securely grips and holds the plants and guides them straight into the feed channel. This new drum design latches every single plant even on headlands.
