Twin Row Stalk Stomper Solution for Preventing Tire Stubble Damage

In fall of 2011, May Wes demoed a 14” wide shoe prototype at the Farm
Progress Show in Decatur Illinois.  This design was intended to address a need for preventing combine tire stubble damage in twin row conditions. Since then, they have optimized and put into
production the addition of a 14” Quick Disconnect STALK STOMPER shoe
alternative to the already existing 9” STALK STOMPER combine product offerings. 

May Wes, original manufacturer of STALK STOMPERS, produces shoes with a ¼” thick Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW)
Poly liner over thick metal.  The poly
finish provides an advantage compared to a metal finish for its non-stick
surface and resistance to abrasion. 

The Quick Disconnect design was introduced in 2011.  Because of its popularity, May Wes now offers upgrade packages for existing standard STALK STOMPERS to make a practical switch to the new Quick Disconnect design.

May
Wes’s line of STALK STOMPER products  are available through an extensive dealer network or online.
