The Northstar 2420 combine head for corn from Geringhoff folds from 41 ft. wide down to 21 ft. for transport. The 24-row, 20-in.-row header is the widest folding combine head in the United States, according to AEMSCO, a North Dakota-based distributor for Geringhoff.

 “The bigger the combines, the bigger the heads need to be,” reports Derek Molnar with AEMSCO. Folding the combine requires only the push of a button in the combine cab. Once the head is folded, the combine can be more easily driven from field to field without removing the head.

The Northstar head features Geringhoff’s knife-to-knife technology for cutting, Molnar adds. The Geringhoff header is manufactured in Germany and assembled in the U.S. Suggested list price is $180,000. For more information, contact Geringhoff/AEMSCO, Dept.
