5000 Stalk Devastator Stalk Roller Attachment


Today’s hybrids develop tough stalks that can destroy expensive tires and tracks on equipment. The 5000 Stalk Devastator™ saves tires and tracks by knocking over, stomping, and crushing stalks while leaving them attached, speeding up the cornstalk breakdown process and improving field conditions for spring planting.
