Massey Ferguson partners with Geringhoff headers

Buyers of Massey Ferguson combine harvesters have a wider range of headers to choose from, thanks to a new tie-up with Geringhoff.

The deal means customers can now order one of the German maker’s tables direct from their dealer. This includes flexible draper headers, as well as units for harvesting grain maize and more specialist crops.

Geringhoff offers three types of draper – the Flex, which features a rigid frame and flexible cutterbar, the Trueflex, with the opposite configuration, and the Trueflex Razor, which has both a flexible chassis and knife.

These machines are designed to cut close to the ground, with a series of sensors to help them neatly follow contours. Once cut, the crop is transported to the feeder housing along variable-speed belts that are designed to give an even flow into the combine. Sizes range from 9.2m (30ft) to 12.2m (40ft).

A number of maize headers are on offer, with the option of stalk chopping attachments, and there are kits to adapt these for cutting sunflowers.

Massey Ferguson will continue to offer its own range of headers, which include the Freeflow, Powerflow, Superflow and Cornflow.
