The article presents information about the benefits of Challenger's new AHBT TwinMax auger headers, which are the first to feature the revolutionary Challenger TwinMax hay conditioner. Unlike traditional hay conditioners, the TwinMax is unique. It uses not one, but two separate sets of conditioner rolls positioned in-line for double conditioning. The first pair consists of steel-on-steel rolls that engage for thorough conditioning action on a variety of crops. This insures efficient crimping along the entire length of plant stems. The second pair consists of intermeshing rubber rolls and sit directly behind the steel rolls, applying a crushing action on plant stems as they direct the crop to the swath shield or windrow forming shields.
