Upgrade to Calmer Stripper Plates for Better Harvesting

Through the installation of the Calmer Upgrade Kit, most factory corn heads can be made to pick cleaner, chop stalks into small pieces, and minimize kernel loss. Through years of research, our engineering team has identified several problem areas that our Upgrade Kit helps solve. Often, this kit saves farmers thousands of dollars on new equipment if they are willing to try and install our patented components on their corn head. Our patented stripper plate is just one area that Calmer provides a refined design in order to maximize corn head performance and increase profits.

Wider Opening in Corn Head Stripper Plate for Better harvesting

If you are see stalks bend, sway, or flat out becoming bulldozed over while harvesting, install our patented stripper plates to prevent these issues. Available for all makes and models of corn heads we sell products for, this design not only helps prevent the bulldozing of stalks, but also helps better direct material to the center of the row unit to become processed into confetti-like pieces by our bt chopper® chopping stalk rolls.

Wider Plate Opening

 First, stalks come into the row unit through Calmer’s wider opening. This can make the corn head a little easier to drive by still allowing stalks to become processed if slightly off the corn row. Remember, we’re just looking to refine something that’s already working. Just like all of the other elements of your farming operation, constant and incremental improvements can make a big difference.  

 

Why Beveled Deck Plates Prevent Butt Shelling

 Synchronized with the BT Chopper® System

As the ear is stripped from the stalk, it is simultaneously engaged and processed by the razor-sharp blades of the BT Chopper® Stalk Rolls. This farmer invented, farmer tested and farmer proven design has seen millions of acres harvested and billions of revolutions on corn head row units. Install the entire Calmer System to synchronize your whole corn head for maximum performance, increased yields, and higher profits.
