The patented four-wheel steering design offers sharper turning, greater maneuverability, and excellent trailing. The front 180-degree steering and 2:1 front-to-rear steering connection ratio ensures true tracking performance.
The patented 4-Wheel All-Wheel Steer (AWS) header transport provides the greatest maneuverability and trailing in the industry for your high-value header investment. With sizes ranging from 52’ down to 30’ and optional specialized draper mounting kits, you’ll be sure to find the right model to fit your needs. The convertible rest brackets and adjustable upper bar ensure you'll be able to perfectly match almost every header and grain platform. The 180-degree front steering and a front-to-rear steering reduction ensure you’ll get the best in all-wheel steering maneuverability. Customize your header transport with optional 4-corner rubber cushioned suspension, extra-long 20’ tongue, or brakes to fit your operation’s needs.
Models & Sizes
All Wheel Steer (AWS) models are available in 52’, 48', 42', 36' and 30' for hauling the widest variety of corn heads, grain platforms and draper platforms, including those with stalk stomper attachments.
For the smoothest ride, choose the four corner rubber cushioned suspension option with 4 rubber bolsters at each corner of the header transport.
Patented four-position height adjustable rest brackets provide easy wrench-free adjustment and feature extra-tall backstops that can be flipped down for carrying low-profile headers. The rest bracket features side plates that pivot for use or storage.
The rest brackets feature a convenient handle and over-center locking mechanism so you can easily loosen the rest bracket and slide it from side-to-side on the lower bar to the desired location.
The tie-down package for the header features 2" heavy-duty nylon straps, brackets and truck-style ratchets for a streamlined design and quick and easy tightening. Steel hooks and loops are included for secure fastening of the tie-down straps, and these are tool-free adjustable so you can slide them from side to side on the lower bar.
The steel upper rest bar includes three fully supported arms to resist flexing and is adjustable both vertically and horizontally, without tools, to fit any brand grain platform or row-crop header. A storage slot in the upper rest bar is specifically designed for holding an extra cutter knife.
The rear-oscillating axle keeps all four wheels in full contact with the ground, even when traveling over rough terrain.
Heavy-duty greaseable 8-bolt hubs, automotive-type ball-joint steering, spindles with tapered roller bearings and new tires dependably carry all brands of corn heads and grain platforms.
52’ and 48’ models feature a 16’ long tongue while all other models are standard with a 12' tongue. All models can be equipped with an optional extra-long 20’ tongue while 42’ to 30’ models can be equipped with an optional 16’ tongue. The extendable clevis and spring-lift assist tongue design make hitching to a pickup, combine, or tractor easy and convenient.
The sturdy 6”x4” lower rest bar is pre-arched and trussed to resist flexing and sagging for greater strength and durability.
Extra-height clearance between the axle and ground allows for easy field entry and exit and the trussed lower rest bar adds rigidity to the unit for full-width support. Transport chain, rear-mounted width-adjustable LED lighting package and reflective striping are standard equipment for optimum road travel safety.
Brakes & Tires
52’ models are standard with two-wheel electric brakes and optional with four-wheel brakes. All other models can be equipped with optional two or four-wheel electric brakes. Brake packages include a breakaway engagement for enhanced transport safety. Several wheel and tire choices are available including high flotation IF 320/65x15 tires, 235/85x16 tires and 11Lx15 tires depending on the model.
The All-Wheel Steer header transport features a highly durable powder-coat finish in your choice of red, green or black for a long-lasting finish that resists corrosion.
Optional mounting kits are available for John Deere hinged drapers, MacDon FD2-series drapers, Honey Bee drapers and Claas Convio drapers. The John Deere hinged draper kit includes two riser brackets, two axle-mounted bracket assemblies, an upper bar landing pad kit, an extra set of tie-downs, and a drop-down tongue. The MacDon FD2-series draper mounting kit includes three extension arms that raise the upper bar 12".
Longer tongues are available to fit your mounting and transporting needs. 42’ to 30’ models can be equipped with a 16’ long tongue in-lieu of the standard 12’ tongue. All models can be equipped with an extra-long 20’ tongue with built-in drop-down design for added clearance.
Optional 12" x 48" long upper rest bar landing pads provide a wider landing area for heads with shorter outer feet under each snout.
Other optional accessories include a spare tire, bolt-on pintle hitch, extra set of rest pads, extra set of tie downs and 12” wide upper bar landing pads.
