May Wes G4 Stalk Stomper Finalist for Made in Minnesota Manufacturing Award
New Combine Corn Head Stalk Stompers Lighter, Easier to Install, Remove and Store
By: May Wes
May Wes is one of three Minnesota manufacturers contending for the Minnesota Business magazine award which celebrates the ingenuity of Minnesota manufacturers. The winner will be announced Sept. 20.
Based on farmer feedback, the G4 Stalk Stomper features a simplified and space-saving torsion design that eliminates the spring, chain, pivot bolt and other bulky features found in most Stalk Stompers, making it much easier for one person to install, remove and reposition for transport or storage. It is available for a wide range of corn heads.
The G4 is much more compact with an 11.5" shorter profile than previous models, providing more clearance for track combines and hassle-free storage and transport on folding corn heads. May Wes widened the G4's shoe to 12" for optimal stalk leveling and reduced its weight by 25 percent. Manufactured from ½" thick durable UHMW poly instead of steel, the G4's shoe easily glides across the field and features a raised tail to prevent accidental reverse damage.
The G4 Stalk Stomper is ideal for track combines and folding headers. It can be used on all rows to flatten and fan-out the stalk, allowing air and moisture to accelerate decomposition, or it can be used on just the rows in front of combine tires and tracks to prevent costly stubble damage. Two to 18-row kits are available.
