THE MOST INDUSTRY-FIRSTS AND ADVANCES IN CORN HEAD HISTORY.
The Drago GT once again raises the bar on corn head performance and return of ownership with more industry firsts. The result is a corn head like no other and by which all others are measured.
AUTOMATIC SELF-ADJUSTING DECK PLATES NOW WITH QUADSUSPENSION.™
The heart of Drago's Kernel Capture Technology™ lies just within the point of stalk entry - where corn meets machine. It is here where Olimac revolutionized harvest technology with the introduction of Automatic Self-Adjusting Deck Plates - and now with QuadSuspension™ ear shocks.
WHEN IT COMES TO CAPTURING MORE CORN, THE LONGER THE KNIFE ROLLER, THE BETTER.
The industry's longest knife rollers combine with a smaller diameter for added plant processing time. The extra time means roller tips can run slower, resulting in less ear bounce - less ear loss - without having to reduce combine speed. No other knife roller measures up to the performance of a Drago GT knife roller.
INTRODUCING TWIN CHOP - ANOTHER INDUSTRY FIRST FOR THOSE WHO PUT KERNEL CAPTURE FIRST.
The Drago GT's new Twin Chop+ option allows knife rollers to run slow for maximum yield retention and still have continuous chopping of the stalk as it travels back and down through the entire length of the knife roller.
SINGLE CHOP FOR FLEXIBLE NEEDS.
Drago GT offers a single chop option for standard sizing. Plus, an on and off engagement lever that provides field-to-field residue management flexibility.
ENDURA DRIVE™- NOT ONLY BUILT BETTER, BUILT TO LAST LONGER.
Endura Drive transfers more power from the combine to the row unit, using fewer gears while delivering power straight forward for maximum efficiency. A simple, durable and efficient delivery of power.
A DYNAMIC DELIVERY SYSTEM DESIGNED TO CAPTURE EVERY KERNEL.
Corn heads may all look the same, but they certainly don't perform the same. Most yield-loss occurs at the corn head rather than the combine behind it - ears bouncing off bonnets, butt-shelling at pull-down, kernels lost through deck plates - everything the Drago GT Dynamic Delivery System works to prevent.
SPIRAL BEVEL GEAR BOXES - THE MOST DURABLE AND EFFICIENT GEARBOX POSSIBLE
Spiral gear cutting produces a quieter and higher performing power transmission used heavily in the automotive industry. Spiral gears always have two teeth engaged vs. straight gears that have only one, making spiral the most efficient way to transmit power 90 degrees.
THE ONLY CORN HEAD WITH INDEPENDENT COMPONENT PROTECTION.
Each major component of Drago GT is individually protected; including auger, knife rollers, gathering chain drives and choppers. This Drago design delivers maximum protection to equipment and added peace of mind to the operator.
