NEW SPARTAN FORAGE HEADS

Designed to fit nearly any self-propelled forage harvester in the world, the SPARTAN is the perfect solution for direct-cut feed (greenchop). The adapter plate incorporates lateral tilting to allow the cutting surface to contour with the ground. The Spartan has been used successfully in nearly any small grain application (barley, oats, triticale, wheat, rice straw) and has dominated the harvest of difficult crops like sorghum (cane), brome grass, sudan grass and other large biomass feed crops.


CHOPPER SHEAR PROTECTION

The Spartan has a cutter bar that is built with efficiency, longevity and ease-of-use in mind. From expertly crafted discs with multiple top-cap options to the quick-change blades (no wrenches needed)… the Spartan takes on any crop with ease and keeps you harvesting instead of worrying about repeat maintenance.

When it comes to keeping you operational, the Spartan’s chopper shear protection is a revolutionary design. Each chopper disc is protected by a precision-etched drive shaft that is designed to shear cleanly in the event of a catastrophic collision which stops the disc but allows the remainder of the cutter bar to keep turning. This exclusive design element in the Spartan cutter bar, combined with the modular replacement of chopper subassemblies in less than 5 minutes, prove once more that Capello is committed to keeping you in the field.

Main drive components of the Spartan are engineered to the highest quality and made from only the finest components. The single-side drive system provides for maximum ground speeds in tough conditions and utilizes a large torque absorption dampener to protect all moving components.

The Capello Spartan is designed with a large, floating feed auger and 2-speed main drive gearbox to ensure regular and continuous crop flow at high ground speeds. With low maintenance requirements and replaceable wear surfaces, the Spartan is designed with the custom operator in mind. Available in 17-foot and 21-foot configurations.

The blade overlap has been specifically designed by Capello engineers for a clean and even cut, even in the most dense and wet products. The blades are changed with a quick-change tool – no other wrenches needed. Each disc is protected by an individual shear spline in each disc to protect the remainder of the cutter bar in the event of a damaging impact with a field obstruction.
