Harvesting sunflowers...

The initial contact is key

Harvesting sunflowers is a sensitive job and the plants have to be treated with care to reap maximum results. It is the initial contact of the plant with the machine that makes the difference here. Our tips, specially developed for gentle sunflower harvesting, ensure a perfect start.

Bespoke sunflower design

Our pans and tips

Wear-resistant, trough-shaped tips - bespoke sunflower designs for a gentle contact. Additionally: Maximum yields at high work rates (> 6mph).

Good crop control

Relief for man and machine

The tips guide the crop to the cutterbar while the integrated seed catcher prevents any seeds from dropping to the ground. The tip width is optimized to allow for row-independent harvesting in all conditions, which reduces operator strain and mechanical stress on the head.

Our features...

Your way to success

Frame and bodywork

Slim design

Sunflowers are a sensitive crop. Therefore we have made the side panels slim and lean to avoid shattering or damage and prevent losses. The head is driven by reliable chains that are easy to get at without tools.

Feeding the crop into the machine

Gently and cautiously for maximum yields

The height-adjustable and degressive helper roll helps feed the plants gently to the auger, pulling them through with great care and very slowly - thanks to its massive 620mm diameter. This significantly enhances the head's performance and effectiveness.

Well constructed

For minimized losses

Shatter-loss grooves ensure maximum versatility for varying row spacings. Combined with the independently adjustable helper roll this ensures an almost loss-free harvesting process.
