ROTA DISC TECHNOLOGY OFFERS A FIERCE APPETITE WITH LOWER HORSEPOWER

Experience reduced fuel consumption, reduced downtime, and fewer maintenance requirements. The uniquely patented Rota Disc design speeds growers through harvest and leaves a distinctly processed field behind. Vertically sliced, shredded, and evenly distributed, the Rota Disc is the industry’s most efficient stalk destruction corn header.

Thorough Processing Promotes the Nutrients Necessary for Future Crops

This innovation eliminates the need for a second pass through fields – which saves time, manpower, and reduces damage to soil. The residue left behind a Rota Disc Elite XL is limited to stalk residue four inches and less in length. Compared to a traditional swinging blade-style’s residue, which is 10 inches or more in length, Mother Nature naturally plays a role in decomposition with the thoroughly processed residue.

Row Unit

Row Unit

The patented Rota Disc row unit contains 15 carbide rotary knives integrated with snapping rolls that process residue like a paper shredder.

Stalk processing that is vertically sliced and evenly distributed for the most thorough harvest process available on the market.

Harvest Efficiency

Harvest Efficiency

The Rota Disc eliminates the need for additional manpower or horsepower post-harvest, leaving fields with the integral nutrients needed to nurture and promote future crops.

“After I run the Rota Disc through my fields, the stalk is just dust. It looks that way whether it’s green or dead ripe and it doesn’t care what stalk you run through it. It’s an impressive head.”
– Pete Sage

Horsepower Requirements

The Rota Disc system requires considerably less horsepower resulting in reduced fuel consumption and substantially less wear on the combine. An increase in harvesting speed does not increase the Rota Disc horsepower demand. Lawn mower style choppers require substantially more horsepower.

Horsepower Requirements

Residue Size

The Rota Disc system consistently processes the majority of stalk remnants to less than 4" in length. Compare this to the lawn mower style choppers that primarily process stalks to only 10" in length or more.

Aluminum Gearbox

Powering the Elite XL Series is a maintenance free sealed oil gearbox, which utilizes an internal self adjusting slip clutch to protect all moving parts of the row unit. Designed to be as relentless as the people who use it, these gearboxes are ready for the demanding challenges you send its way. So bring it on.

Drive Hub

The Geringhoff system eliminates undue stress on the bearings and drive mechanism of each row unit. A positive transfer of power and torque across the entire machine is created with the flex plate row coupler. This design also allows quick and individual removal of any row unit, should service be required.

Triple Protection System

Eliminate down time. Spend more time harvesting and less time on repairs and adjustments. This is the goal of the Triple Protection Slip Clutch System. Each row unit features automatic gathering chain tension adjustment, unique beveled sprockets and a slip clutch with an additional double bearing in every row unit gear box. Enter the field with confidence knowing you have triple protection on your side.

Additional Features


Header Height Control

Header Height Control

Precise header height control over all types of terrain. At the heart of the Headsight header height control system are flexible poly paddles and reliable electronics. Other systems will dig in to the soil and damage the system when in reverse, but not Headsight. It's design is operator friendly and has been used reliably for decades.

ICF Sweeper

ICF Sweeper

Increases the speeds and yield in any condition. Rely on the ICF Sweeper to power you through even the toughest conditions, keeping the tangled, down corn flowing to speed up harvest. Substantially increase speeds and yield in any condition and reduce your combine hours up to 50 percent. An integrated design offers a clean, sleek appearance with convenient fore/aft and up/down adjustments at the touch of a button.

End Row Augers

End Row Augers

Proven to enhance feeding and be more efficient than any end row shield, the optional Elite XL End Row Augers create confidence in any tough or tall crop conditions. In-cab control reduces crop loss as well as bunching and lodging. End row augers effectively push stalks and cobs into the trough that can lean off the edge of the head during harvest.

Combine Adapters

Combine Adapters

Versatility is important, that's why our combine adaptors allow the Rota Disc to be easily switched between models or brands. Your header's resale value is maximized by being able to adapt to all combines.
