Features

Ultimate Grain Saving Capability

Case IH has expanded the 4400 series corn head lineup with all-new narrow row configuration options. Completely redesigned from the ground up, the new narrow row corn head is built to match the performance of Case IH Axial-Flow® combines.

Introducing the Narrow Row Corn Head

Choices to Fit Your Needs

  • Available in 20- and 22-inch spacing, new narrow row corn heads will help producers pick cleaner, harvest faster and pick down corn better to save more grain.
  • Chopping and nonchopping configurations options are available to fit your residue management system.

 

Achieve a High-efficiency Harvest

  • Take a load off your combine with a lightweight head — up to 2,000 pounds lighter than competitive models — that floats over the ground and reduces compaction.
  • Separate drive lines power the row units and choppers, providing more efficient power data control and additional protection to the drive lines.
  • Power is driven from the gear boxes in the center of the head and split equally to the right and left side of the head; this clean design improves power flow.

 

Designed For Enhanced Grain Savings

  • New flip-up tall-corn attachments are integrated into the other dividers and help prevent loss of corn ears over the ends of heads when harvesting in tall stands of corn.
  • Updated stalk roll spiral patterns are now optimized for today’s challenging crop conditions and can handle a wider range of stalk diameters and stalk health.
  • The divider profile and hood design aid in smoother crop flow. Then CornLouvers™ channel corn ears and loose kernels into head for enhanced grain savings.
