Corn Header Maintenance

My husband decided this year the header needed some maintenance completed.  I thought I would show you what he has replaced on it.  Although you want to get your full use out of parts, it's best to keep an eye on the areas of your machinery and replace before they break completely.

This year he is installing new gathering chains and sprockets.   You can see in this photo the old sprocket is on the left and the new one is on the right.  Yea, that one on the left is pretty worn!  The gathering chains

This photos shows both newly installed into the header.

Corn harvest was underway but due to 4.5 inches of rain we are unable to keep going.  We are hoping tomorrow afternoon we can try again.  Our granddaughter was able to come out this past weekend and ride the combine!

Just a little update from the farm!  Hope all is going well for you and yours!  Our daughter started first grade and loves it so far!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Julie,
    Hope you are doing well. You have had a sad end to the summer, school and jumping right into harvest, make sure to take care of yourself.
    Good Luck with corn harvest.
