Sloan Implement became a Yield 360 dealer this summer. We now sell all Yield 360 products to include Y-drops, chain rolls, yield savers, bullet plow points, soil scan, and undercover fungicide.
This video shows the difference between John Deere opposed rolls, intermeshing rolls, and Yield 360 chain rolls. The first major difference is that the John Deere opposed rolls leave long crimped pieces of stalk. John Deere intermeshing rolls leave a lot smaller pieces of stalk for better break down and ability to plow the ground sooner without worry of the plow or ripper plugging/balling up. The Yield 360 chain rolls leave smaller pieces as well as crimp the smaller pieces, split the pieces of stalk long ways, and ripping open the top of stalk still standing. This crimping and splitting allows for quicker better break down to get the nutrients of the stalk back in the ground faster.
Note: opposed rolls are the best for “fluffing” on the header.
If you have any questions regarding the different type stalk rolls for your corn head please contact Sloan Implement.
