Largest folding corn head built by Geringhoff

The Northstar 2420 combine head for corn from Geringhoff folds from 41 ft. wide down to 21 ft. for transport. The 24-row, 20-in. row header is the widest folding combine head in the United States, according to AEMSCO, a North Dakota-based distributor for Geringhoff.

“The bigger the combines, the bigger the heads need to be,” reports Derek Molnar with AEMSCO. Folding the combine only requires pushing a button in the combine cab. Once the head is folded, the combine is more easily driven from field to field without removing the head.

The Northstar head features Geringhoff’s knife-to-knife technology for cutting, Molnar adds. The Geringhoff header is manufactured in Germany and assembled in the U.S. Suggested list price is $180,000. Contact Geringhoff/AEMSCO, Dept.
