Case IH Announces New Corn Headers
The new 3152 and 3162 draper heads harvest more acres in less time with superior crop feeding and less susceptibility to crop moisture. Case IH 4400 and 4200 corn heads were designed with some key customer requirements in mind: to pick cleaner, to harvest at faster speeds, to save more grain and to be easier to service. The heads include several features that allow them to pick more corn at higher ground speeds, like heavy-duty drives engineered for highspeed harvest and high-yielding corn hybrids.
These heads have high-capacity gathering chains to pull in large crop volumes and matched capacity stalk roll to gathering chain speeds for superior feeding. They also have larger stalk rolls that increase stalk processing and longer stalk roll knives that give you a wider operating range. And they’re built with patented corn-saver louvers that maximize grain savings.

Ag Leader’s Compass Display
“The Compass display was designed for growers who want a display to use primarily for guidance,” says Matt Leinen, Product Manager. “With a built-in lightbar, the Compass display provides on-screen guidance and coverage mapping that allows operators to improve pass-to-pass accuracy and easily track where they have been in the field, reducing costly gaps and overlaps.
“The user doesn’t need to know how to set up field information within the display to operate,” he adds. “With the event feature, they can simply create a new event each time they enter a field and go.”
The key features of the Compass display include: Compact design with built-in lightbar, 7-inch color touchscreen, built-in manual guidance and multiple language options. It combines with OnTrac2+ assisted steering, ParaDyme or GeoSteer automated steering systems for high-end guidance and is compatible with ISO 11783 Virtual Terminal Standard Full-screen mapping.
