Claas launches ORBIS 900 forage header

Agriculture.com Staff 10/23/2009 @ 1:00pm

The ORBIS 900 is a row independent head that can cover 30 feet (12 rows/30 inches) of corn, milo and forage sorghum in a single pass. The head allows high horsepower Claas forage harvesters to maximize their capacity.

The ORBIS 900 is uniquely engineered with a V-shaped crop flow that funnels the crop smoothly from the head into the forage harvester. Large drums on the end transport crop to the center and create a windrow effect for the crop to enter the forage harvester, which results in higher chop quality and increased fuel efficiency. The drums keep the outside rows on each end away from the uncut neighboring rows giving growers less cob loss.

Standard Auto Contour adjusts the head up and down and the new suspended frame geometry automatically neutralizes lateral tilt. This gives the grower the ability to adapt to the topography of the field providing the greatest versatility of harvesting in crop and terrain.
