Grain Headers

4,9 TO 12,5 M


Our focus at Case IH has always been to make combines that perform in demanding conditions, dry or damp also in tough green straw and dry brittle short crop. The design of the 3050-grain header means it can handle everything from heavy cereals to canola, whether standing or laid down. With its robust design and easy-to-operate nature, the 3050-grain header is the combine operator’s harvest tool.


The design of the Case IH 3050 grain header adapts to all conditions to extract the maximum from every field and every crop for the ultimate in high capacity, high-quality harvesting. With its high sickle speed of 1,300 strokes per minute and its contour hugging ability, the header maintains a consistent short or long stubble height, at high ground speed. The integral knife drive pulley flywheel is designed to maintain knife inertia and to cut out peak loads, providing smooth running at any harvesting speed. The reel is synchronized with the ground speed, with automatic reel speed control, reacting to the combine’s forward speed to provide low-loss intake and top quality output.


The full capacity of the 3050-grain header can be exploited whatever the straw volume of the crop in question, with the aid of a movable knife that allows long-strawed crops and high volumes to be easily ingested for even and consistent feeding. For short crops, the knife can be quickly retracted on the go, without reducing ground speed. A large 107cm reel diameter with an exceptional lift height of 184 cm (approx. from the ground level to the middle of the reel) makes it easy to limit losses to a minimum and reduce reel wrapping in crops such as canola and rye.


3050-grain headers are superbly equipped to deal with laid crops. Lifters can be set to reach below the cutter bar to ease the crop from the ground and improve cutting performance without picking up stones or losing valuable ears. Lifters are available for conditions requiring them, such as flattened straw or over-ripe barley, while for circumstances where they are not needed, they can be stored in a convenient location on the right-hand side of the header.
