The FieldRunner header transport provides economical and reliable transportation for your high-value corn head, grain platform or draper head.  With 180° front steering and sizes ranging from 42’ down to 25’, the two-wheel steer FieldRunner offers high-value header transportation.

Models & Sizes

Models are available in 42’, 36', 30', and 25' for hauling the widest variety of corn heads, grain platforms and draper platforms, including those with stalk stomper attachments.


Height-adjustable rest brackets provide easy wrench-free adjustment and feature extra-tall backstops that can be removed for carrying low-profile headers.

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.

Stable Transport

The rear-oscillating axle keeps all four wheels in full contact with the ground, even when traveling over rough terrain.

A 180-degree turning radius and extra-long 16’ tongue on models HT-42 and HT-36 and 12’ tongue on model HT-25 provide exceptional maneuverability eliminating bent tongues.  For model HT-30, choose between 16’ or 12’ tongue.
