BT Chopper Stalk Rolls
Through the integration of multi-length blades,
Calmer Stalk Rolls have a patented “open window”
feeding chamber to guarantee the efficient
traveling of cornstalks into the row unit to
become processed into “confetti-like” pieces
by 20 razor-sharp blades.
Multi-Zone Beveled Stripper Plates
calmer patented stripper plates have a wider
front opening to help prevent the bulldozing
of cornstalks when slightly off the row. The
beveled stripping area mimics the bottom
portion of the corn ear to help reduce
butt shelling problems and trash intake.
Slow Down Kit
calmer’s patented “slow down” kit includes
a new drive and idler sprocket combination,
which slows down just the gathering chains by 12.5%.
This reduces trash intake, decreases kernel loss
and increases the longevity of the sprockets and chains.

Reliable stalk rolls are critical to a top-performing corn head. That's why Calmer invented the World's Only All-Weather Stalk Roll™ known as the BT Chopper®, which is the only roll in the industry with a patented “open window” feeding chamber for the superior feeding and processing of stalks in all crop conditions.
The 10 razor-sharp knives on each BT Chopper® Stalk Roll cut, chop and shear cornstalks into confetti-like pieces for accelerated decomposition. As a result, you will be able to reduce a management pass across the field, improve your planting experience and increase yields. Calmer Grass Knives match the curvature of the BT Chopper's® redesigned nose to prevent the back wrapping of grasses.
MULTI-ZONE BEVELED STRIPPER PLATES
“I farm with my brother-in-law. While I was installing the BT Chopper Rolls he would walk by and say ‘That’s a lot of money, they had better work.’ After fall harvest and tillage, I asked him what he thought. He said ‘That was the best money I’d ever spent.’ In all the years he has done fall tillage it was the first year he did NOT plug-up once.”
Reduce Butt Shelling and
Decrease “Trash” Into Combine
Calmer’s Patented Multi-Zone Beveled Stripper Plates for New Holland corn heads have a wider front opening that reduces the bulldozing of cornstalks when not fully aligned with the row. This wider retrieving area is manufactured flat in the front to reduce ear wedging problems and beveled in the back to allow the stalk rolls to engage the ear shanks, leaves and husks to reduce trash intake into the combine. The patented beveled edge emulates the rounded bottom of the corn ear to mitigate kernel loss by displacing the energy around the base of the corn ear.
Slow Down Kit Chains and Sprockets
“The best money I ever spent on aftermarket upgrades to a machine! I am able to downsize residue without buying a chopping corn head and leave the field with a more uniform residue distribution. Of the heads I saw demonstrated at the 2015 Farm Progress Show, the Calmer head was by far the best!”

7-Tooth Drive Sprockets slow down gathering chains by 12.5% to reduce trash intake and kernel loss caused by fast chain speeds. Calmer’s larger 9-Tooth Idler Sprockets improve the chains’ grabbing and conveying ability and allow for a standard-size gathering chain to be used. This new-and-improved non-greaseable idler sprocket is solid-steel and has a replaceable bearing for low maintenance and long life. Longer-lasting Chrome-Pin Gathering Chains are sent with all Slow Down Kits.
