John Deere 608C
600C Series Corn Heads
The entrance into the auger bed floor of the 608C Corn Head has been lowered in comparison to previous John Deere corn heads. This enables gravity to do its job and let crop follow the slope designed into the auger bed and move it quickly away from the row unit.
