MAY WES Introduces New G4 Stalk Stompers For Combine Corn Heads G4 Stalk Stompers 25% Lighter, More Compact, Much Faster To Install, Remove

10 Sep 2023

imageMay Wes, a leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket poly agricultural equipment, proudly introduces the new G4 Stalk Stomper for more efficient and effective stalk leveling.

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.

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.

May Wes is accepting G4 pre-orders now, with product available starting this summer for a wide range of corn heads, including row crop mount kits for Case IH 2600, 4200, 4400, 2606, 4412F, 2200, 2400, 3200 and 3400 Series and New Holland 99C/980, 99C, 980CF, 96C, 96D, 98C, 98D, and 996 Series, as well as toolbar mount kits (with and without toolbar) for John Deere 600 and 700 Series and Drago GT Series. Additional models are in development. May Wes will continue to offer its QD2 Stalk Stompers, and also offers tractor Stalk Stompers.

Located in the heart of farmland in Hutchinson, Minnesota, May Wes prides itself on making sure all of its products are field tested and farmer approved. The G4 was tested on 15,000 acres by multiple growers. They praised its ease of handling, and less bulky, more efficient design. One farmer noted that he ran 2,500 acres with heavier down pressure at 5.5 miles per hour and the G4 withstood wear better than his previous Stalk Stompers.

May Wes Stalk Stompers save farmers money and time by protecting expensive tires and tracks from today's tough cornstalks. Available for a fraction of the cost of new tires or tracks, Stalk Stompers flatten the stalks at ground level, eliminating downtime for tire/track repairs or replacement due to stubble damage, while also aiding in decomposition. In business for 45+ years, May Wes introduced the original Stalk Stomper in 1983. Since then, May Wes has progressively made design improvements and continues growing the product line to provide the most extensive corn head Stalk Stomper product offering on the market.
