The Operation Harvest Sweep kit from Leading Edge Industries is now available. The kit offers farmers a chance to reduce shatter loss in corn headers by up to 85 percent, according to extensive field tests and years of harvest data.
Operation Harvest Sweep kits are available for most popular makes and models of corn headers, and each kit contains deck plates, gathering chains, impact pads and hardware per row unit. The custom-built deck plates included with Operation Harvest Sweep are lipped to retain shattered kernels, rather than letting them fall to the ground. Additionally, the new gathering chains are equipped with sweeps to bring the shattered kernels from the deck plates to the auger. The gathering chains also come with impact pads for gentler corn handling and reduced shattering.
