Kooima Ag Dual Roll Earlage Adapters: An Information Guide (2022)
March 31, 2022 | Ag Parts
What is a Kooima Ag dual roll adapter used for?
The dual-roll adapters are used for harvesting just the ears of corn using the row crop header to make earlage. Earlage is harvested later than silage, giving the producer a longer working window and provides a product that reduces the amount of roughage that needs to be fed as compared to a corn-based ration.
Why does the Kooima Ag Dual Roll Adapter work well?
The dual-roll adapters work well because of the improved crop flow system with the added additional intake roller on the bottom. These adapters are coupled with the standard top intake roller. This makes these adapters uniquely geared for today’s higher horsepower harvesters and larger corn heads.
How long do the Kooima Ag dual roll adapters last? Will they need to be replaced in a few years?
These adapters are very robust, many customers have 10 plus years of use from theirs. Replacement typically occurs when a customer trades brands or upgrades their harvester.
How do you install the Kooima Ag dual roll adapters?
Installation of the Earlage Adapters is the same as hooking up any other implement. You can leave the adapter on the harvester or corn head while not in use. When leaving the adapter on the corn head, it’s simply picking up the adapter/corn head and hooking up PTOs.
