Kemper 300 series headers for self propelled harvesters use up to 12 rotary cutter blades in a width of cut ranging from the 4.5m model 345 through to the 9m model 390plus.
The 300 series cutter drums are of a small diameter allowing their use on a wide range of crops including hard stemmed crops such as maize. The versatile Kemper 300 series is offered alongside the Kemper 400 series which has a larger drum size allowing a higher speed of cut on more specific range of crops.
The open cutting mode permits fast operation independent of crop row width and direction, even on laid crops. The fast rotating cutters have a saw tooth cutting edge capable of operating in heavy cutting conditions including weed cutting and whole-crop silage. Many thin stemmed animal feed or biomass crops can be harvested with the 300 series, as this video shows:
The 300 series is suitable for harvesting maize, sorgum, sunflowers, whole crop silage, oil seed rape, hemp, pampas grass etc.
The tungsten carbide tipped blades are fitted in segmented sections allowing partial replacement if necessary.
The 300plus series features special cleaner blades which break up sharp maize stubble. protecting the tyres of the harvester and speeding up stubble decomposition.
The crop gathering system ensures an even flow of crop into the cutters producing optimum chop quality and maximum use of engine power.
The larger headers in the 300 series fold hydraulically to reduce their width for transport. The ease of transport and speed of preparation for harvesting can be seen in this video:
Optional extras include a row guidance system, liquid cooled clutch and two speed gearbox.
