Unverferth Manufacturing introduces new patent-pending 6-wheel steerable header transports for added maneuverability and increased flotation over uneven ground and through fields designed for today’s heavier corn heads and draper platforms.
The new design features a front axle with rubber-cushioned suspension for a smoother ride over any terrain. The rear, in-line walking tandem wheels follow the ground contour to better distribute the weight and increase flotation under load. New, high-capacity IF320/65×15 wheels and tires provide the carrying capacity needed.
These models also include patented, tool-free adjustable rest brackets and tie downs for dependably securing the load. The 16-foot long tongue, 12-foot on model ASWP 42, permits tighter turning for greater maneuverability and added clearance for header gauge wheels and other attachments. An optional 20-foot tongue with built-in drop provides hitching ease when pulled behind a combine and to accommodate flex draper heads.
For greater transport safety the two front and two rearmost wheels feature electric braking for sure-footed stopping power. Standard LED agricultural lighting, reflective striping, round 7-pin bladed plug and transport chains offer enhanced on-road transport safety. The new AWST models are available in 52-, 48- and 42-foot versions to match the producer’s head carrying needs.
All Unverferth header transport models are available in powder-coat finish of implement red, green or black to fit the producer’s choice. A variety of adapter mounting packages are available for select specialized heads.
