Jada: Walking them in

What do harvesters do when their headers are wider than the gates to the field? We walk them in. A newer feature on our John Deere combines allows us to tilt our headers to the right and left. This makes the job a lot easier and is a necessity as headers get wider. We run 35 ft straight heads but there are larger ones out on the market. In the past, walking our combines in was a lot more difficult. See a video of Leon walking a combine in. This isn’t the smallest gate we have to go through so it wasn’t much of a challenge for this veteran harvester.
