360 Yield Saver

Reduce Header Loss   On Sale 5%

360 YIELD SAVER reduces header loss by 80% by closing the gaps in traditional deck plates and gathering chains.

Traditional corn heads have gaps in the deck plates and gathering chains that result in corn kernels falling right through. 360 YIELD SAVER eliminates those gaps by adding intermeshing bristles to custom gathering chains to capture significantly more kernels.

Side by side tests show 360 YIELD SAVER reduces header loss by over 80%. 360 YIELD SAVER can pay for itself within the first season and generate more than a 75% ROI after three years.

Key Features

  • Mounts easily on corn heads
  • Chain includes crop lugs (not shown) to improve stalk feeding
  • 360 YIELD SAVER blocks easily attach to chain
  • Simply replace blocks when they wear out
  • Chain wear life similar to conventional chains
  • Block life expected to be one season

The angled, intermeshing bristles of the 360 YIELD SAVER blocks fit together in a way that captures more kernels than traditional gather gathering chains.

 

The blocks easily attach to a special gathering chain and each block can be replaced without having to replace the
whole chain.

 

Compare the header loss (indicated by flags) in field by traditional gathering and deck plates on the right (about 178 kernels) with the header loss collected after a pass made by a head with 360 YIELD SAVER on the left (about 25 kernels). This amounts to about 1.8 bushels per acre savings.

 

Don't Let Yield Fall Through the Cracks

Field test show that 360 YIELD SAVER typically captures and additional 1.8 bushels per acre. The savings add up quickly. Consider the return on investment for a typical corn operation. With an eight row head covering 750 acres per year, a grower could expect gross yield savings of over $16,000 and a net profit of over $7,000. That's a 76% return on investment.

In addition to the yield capture, header management improves. You no longer have to manage the header speed to minimize header loss. You can optimize head and feeder house speed to ground speed and crop flow. Plus, because 360 YIELD SAVER can capture nubbins and undersized ears, you have more flexibility in deck plate spacing.
