Yetter's 5000 Series Stalk Devastator
"Today's hybrids are designed to resist disease, insects, and wind, but the tough stalks are destroying tires. This leads to downtime and expensive replacement," said Jim Lascelles, service manager at Yetter Farm Equipment.
The rollers on the Yetter 5000 Stalk Devastator push stalks over, crushing them, which allows tires/tracks to easily roll over the stalk without damage. The rollers reduce stubble damage to the tires, wires, and hydraulic hoses on combines, trucks, tractors, and seeding/tillage equipment.
Apart from protecting equipment, stalk-crushing has other benefits. With each pass through the field, the 5000 Stalk Devastator knocks stubble over while leaving the stalk attached with roots partially broken. That means they wont blow away-maintaining errosion-preventing and moisture-conserving residue on the soil surface. The crushed stalks, when knocked over, have more contact with the soil than if left standing, facilitating quicker plant tissue breakdown.
The solid steel design of the 5000 Stalk Devastator is quick and easy to install, with mounting kits for most corn head models. It is designed to not interfere with most header transport carts.
