A Design So Innovative
it has patents
In a still picture, it’s hard to grasp the full benefits you get with Calmer Stalk Rolls! But, on the right you’ll see a picture of the stalk roll feeding chamber that makes this the world’s only all-weather stalk roll. Both stalk rolls spin in unison, allowing the longest flutes to pull the stalk into a void (open window) where it enters quickly and easily without obstruction. The longest flutes that engage the stalks are hardened for long life (seen with the extra weld on top in the illustration).
The longest flutes engage and crush the stalk for the efficient feeding and processing of stalks.
World’s Only All Weather Stalk Roll®
From dry, brittle stalks late in the season to harvesting high-moisture, green stalks, our patented open window feeding chamber enables your corn head to pick in any crop conditions. After the open window closes, razor-sharp knives cut stalks into 2″ pieces of confetti. Enough talk – let’s watch!
The stalk flow pattern is traced in white lines. The open window feeding chamber is the missing link in corn head refinement and provides the symphony of engagement that we build into our custom-built corn heads.

“We run two combines now, one with Calmer BT Crushers and one that was new to us. We ran 3 to 4 rounds, stopped and walked for 10 minutes. We called and ordered a Calmer BT Crusher Kit for the new head! We didn’t run the new head until the Calmer order arrived and was installed.”
It’s easy to see that the open window makes all the difference between standard stalk rolls and Calmer’s patented design. No wonder farmers across North America are upgrading their old corn heads with Calmer Parts. Simple and effective, Calmer stalk Rolls admit the stalk to be processed which offers significant advantages in picking down corn. From the open window, stalks are processed into confetti. Watch our slow motion footage to see the stalk processed in detail. Chopping Stalk Roll save horsepower and maintenance compared to operating chopping corn head with ‘lawn mower’ blades.
