PSM series


PSM series sunflower headers

PSM sunflower headers are appropriate for harvesting fully mature sunflower. PSM headers with fix frame are manufactured in 6, 8, and 12 row versions with spacings of 70 and 76,2 cm.


Main features of the PSM series headers:

  • Harvest loss: 0,4-0,5% (valid for average harvesting conditions)
  • Operational ease
  • Can be ordered for any combine type
  • Quick uncoupling without special tools
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Low operational costs
  • Plugging-free operation even at lodged down or weedy crop conditions
  • High field performance
  • Working speed: 8-10 km/h
  • Harvest and stalk chopping and spreading in one pass
  • Possibility for immediate soil tilling after harvesting
  • Reduced soil treading damage
  • Chips are spread on the stubble field by the chopper.
  • No damage on the rubber tyre tread by the stalk stumps
  • No damage by the stalk stumps on the low-mounted units of the combine or transportation vehicles.


Each row unit features a gathering chain providing smooth material flow to the rotary blade mechanism and clean cut of the sunflower stems.

Lightweight row dividers assembled with vibrating catch pans minimize shattering loss, furthermore provide smooth and uniform material flow to the gathering conveyor and the feeder house.

Low profile floating lifters minimize harvest loss even at lodged down crop conditions.

Side panels of the header work as excellent row dividers eliminating loss or fall-out of the sunflower heads from the header at the side rows.

Simple, durable drive line with built-in safety clutch results ease of maintenance and high technical reliability.

The headers are avaliable with plastic lifters. Use of plastic lifters results smoother and more gentle lifting of the sunflower stalks/heads, furthermore provides avoidance of corrosion.

All PSM headers are equipped with coupling frames which provide quick coupling to any model of combine harvester.

 When placing an order, simply specify the make, model and year of your combine and we provide the appropriate coupling frame.


About the chopper:

The chopper is driven hydraulically. The power is transmitted from the combine's feeder via the cardan shaft. The hydraulic system of the chopper is independent from the hydraulic system of the combine.  The chopper has as many vertical-axle rotors as the number of the rows to be harvested, and they have bearings in pairs, in shared housings. The chopper units are elevated and depressed by the hydraulic system of the operating combine.  The chopper demands only cc. 10% additional fuel consumption.  PSM headers has been designed to fold under the header in the elevated position of the chopper structure in order to ensure proper use in low-grown or bent stocks similary to the traditional headers.


  • power and machine demand of chopping,
  • as well as their fuel and labour costs.
