Earlage Adapter to fit John Deere® (8000 & 9000 series)
Kooima Ag #K9000
The K9000 Dual Roll Adapter is the latest offering from Kooima Ag. This adapter has an improved crop flow system with the added additional intake roller on the bottom. Coupled with the standard top intake roller this adapter is uniquely geared for today's higher horsepower harvesters and larger corn heads offering better cleanout and increased harvesting speed averaging 6 MPH.
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.
The K9000 is 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.
The K9000 dual roll adapter will mount on the front of John Deere® 8000 and 9000 series self-propelled forage harvester to facilitate the connection between the harvester and a row crop header.
Installation of the K9000 Earlage Adapter 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.
Kooima Ag is the leader in header adapter manufacturing, continuous testing, and implementing customer requests help us to offer one of the best products available.
