John Deere Stalk Rolls In Stock 2022 Ready to Ship
John Deere offers three stalk roll options for 600 Series Corn heads and the word on the street in early 2022 shows limited to no supply available to ship. JD stalk roll options offer differing residue processing needs for their customers.
What we’re seeing at Fall Farm Shows and in the market place today are farmers renewing and rebuilding their existing corn with BT Choppers because the price of new equipment has skyroketed in the post corona business environment.
John Deere Straight Fluted Stalk Roll primarily leaves the stalk intact on-purpose for slow residue breakdown and moisture trapping. We don’t know anyone looking for that type of response from their row unit! Designed specifically for fracturing of the stalk bi laterally to increase the speed of residue decomposition and return nitrogen to the soil. BT CHOPPERS® claim to be the “World’s Only All Weather Stalk Roll” because they are less prone to plugging in tough, wet or weedy conditions.

Stalk Roll Types Compared to BT CHOPPERs®
We like to let farmers talk it out and post their own responses (link to New Ag Talk.com)
- 2011 response “I put the slow down kit and Bt crushers on my 693 last year, very pleased with the job it does.”
- 2013 Response: “Yes, I put them on my 643 and really liked them. Chopped up stalks as well as anything I’ve seen. My uncle has a geringhoff chopping head and mine does almost as good a job at a fraction of the cost.“
- 2017 Review: Honestly, i don’t brag about any of our equipment, heck i complain about most of it. However Calmer rolls are one of my best purchases. Marion is great to deal with. I have run their bt chopppers on two 893’s. The life of them has been longer than they said. Our life has gotten so much better in the fall after spending the money. Been running them for 6 years now I believe. Do yourselves a favor and attend a farm show and spend 5 minutes with Marion, you wont regret it.
- 2018 Review: “This year was our fourth year running calmer knife rolls. We run the whole kit besides beveled deck plates. Certain varieties get chopped up more than others. If you fungicide they really do a good job with a healthier stalk.”
2022 Global Supply Chain Solutions
We’re not sold out as of Februrary of 2022, but we expect to be by October so place your order early! Not because we’re having manufacturing problems, but because farmers know how to save money. A set of stalk rolls from Calmer may be more expensive than a standard Deere roll, but you have increased function and performance that provide an on-the ground savings from fuel to nitrogen. Farmers testing them all across the United States have spread the word all the way from the northern climates of Canada to the southern states double cropping. In 2021 we saw supply chain problems across the globe, but for Calmer BT Choppers it was only a wide demand that we couldn’t keep up with. We simply didn’t manufacture enough. Now in 2022 we have a better forecast of the demand, and our manufacturing facilities have actually increased production ability to keep up with the demand from the world agricultural community. We still suggest you order early to ensure your corn head is operating at it’s finest for #harvest2022.
