Oxbo International Corporation, manufacturer of specialized harvesting equipment including seed corn harvesters, introduces its first corn head made for field corn producers. The company designed the new 50 series corn head for commercial field corn harvest using the same technology as that in the corn heads used in seed corn harvesting — with the focus on gentle, efficient ear removal that makes “every kernel count.” The corn head is specifically designed for harvesting in any condition, including down corn and low ears.

Oxbo’s Soft Touch technology uses exclusive six-bladed, tapered intermeshing knife rolls to cut the ears of corn from the stalk. The knife rolls are engineered to gently and precisely cut the ear from the stalk, reducing header loss. They work in tandem with Oxbo’s hydraulically adjusted stripper plates, which are designed to remain centered over the knife rolls for straighter stalk pull down, precise ear removal, reduced ear damage and less trash in the harvester than when conventional corn heads are used.

Suggested list prices: six row, $49,385; eight row, $61,800; and 12 row, $91,555. Contact Oxbo International Corp., Dept. FIN, 100 Bean St., Clear Lake, WI 54005, 800/628-6196, .
