Equipment companies offer a variety of solutions for lodged corn. A common one is a unit like the Kelderman reel, which mounts across the corn head to lift tangled stalks with a rotating series of J-shaped fingers.

Another option is the Roll-A-Cone, a series of long, slim rotating cones that mount above and in line with the snouts. The cones can be used in several configurations depending on conditions and row width.

In 2002, Goodwin Industries introduced a header sweep as an alternative to traditional corn reels. The sweep mounts above the corn head, where its drag arms pull the crop into the gathering chains.

Hawkins Manufacturing offers a reel with a system of paddles.

Manufacturers generally report their units can be mounted on all makes of combine.
