The John Deere 608FC corn head has been re­leased onto the Aus­tralian mar­ket

Corn grow­ers who use John Deere 6 and 7 S-Se­ries com­bine har­vesters can now use a fold­able, eight-row corn head to har­vest their crops, fol­low­ing the in­tro­duc­tion of the new John Deere 608FC corn head.

The 608FC corn head is slim enough to al­low the com­bine it is mounted on to travel along nar­row roads, and elim­i­nates the need for the har­vester op­er­a­tor to take off and reat­tach corn heads when mov­ing from field to field. John Deere har­vester works se­nior mar­ket­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tive Roger Maes says the 608FC is durable, pro­duc­tive, and eco­nom­i­cal.

“Har­vest­ing with a new John Deere eight-row fold­ing corn head can lower op­er­at­ing costs and al­low cus­tomers to har­vest ad­di­tional hectares per move by not hav­ing to trans­port the head sep­a­rately,” Maes says.

“That helps con­trib­ute to their bot­tom line and make them much more pro­duc­tive and prof­itable.”

The 608FC is avail­able in 762mm row spac­ing, ei­ther with or with­out the stalk chop­ping op­tion, and the head folds to 3.3m in width for trans­porta­tion. Other fea­tures in­clude an im­proved row unit slip clutch and drive­shaft in­ter­face.

“The 608FC is the ideal green-on-green header so­lu­tion for cus­tomers that need to drive down nar­row roads to ac­cess fields they need to har­vest, with­out hav­ing to trans­port the head sep­a­rately,” Maes says.

The John Deere 608FC fold­ing corn head and other grain har­vest­ing at­tach­ments are now avail­able via the Aus­tralian John Deere dealer net­work.
