- Geringhoff is
a medium-sized family business steeped in tradition and now in its fifth
The success story that began 130 years ago is inseparable from
its homeland, the Münsterland region, and its people. If it was not for the
way our employees identify with the company and our close ties with our
customers, we would not be what we are today. Some of our customer
relationships are now in their second and third generation.
There is no
getting closer to customers, their desires and challenges.
- Always at the cutting edge - Geringhoff maize
Geringhoff has been manufacturing maize headers for more than 50 years, and
throughout this time two questions have been foremost in our minds: firstly,
how can we perfect our harvesting systems even further in order to find “the
perfect way to harvest”?
And secondly, what is the best design for a maize header to ensure it
provides maximum benefits on maize fields around the world?
Instead of just one answer to this question, we have five: five different
header systems to meet all harvesting needs worldwide.
- Horizon Star®
Mais Star* Horizon
- Powerful and reliable: the
gear drive from Geringhoff.
- The automatic, hydraulic folding system was developed by
Geringhoff many years ago. Even if “folding” has since become the norm, we
are still the company setting standards in this and other areas.
- The maize header with the unique three-rotor technology
and integrated chopper. Harvesting and chopping incorporated in one system.
The corn straw is chopped lengthwise and broken down into fibres by 15
self-sharpening cutting discs that rotate against the feed direction of the
- The combination of harvesting, stripping and chopping
technology defines the Horizon Star® as an outstanding header. The
horizontal stubble chopper secures short stubbles, an effective combat
against the corn borer and an excellent harvesting result.
- Thanks to the small number of moving parts and
self-sharpening, specially coated blade sections, the unique single-roller
system developed by Geringhoff is extremely robust and long-lasting. The
maize header also stands out thanks to its simplicity and reliability.
- The MS principle: two counter-rotating header rollers,
each equipped with four knife blades, pull the corn stalk downwards in an
aggressive but controlled manner. The corn straw is left behind on the field
unchopped, where among other things it helps prevent soil erosion. Equipped
with up to 24 rows, it is one of the largest in the world.
Mais Star* Horizon
- The Mais Star* Horizon model integrates a horizontal
chopper that together with the header row forms a fixed, almost
maintenance-free unit. It cuts the plants close to the surface leaving very
short stubble and chops the corn straw pulled in by the cutter rollers with
a minimum energy demand. The chopper can also be disconnected.
- For greater productivity: the high-tech grain headers
The constant search for better solutions has led Geringhoff to continuous
improvements and three major achievements. First, all of our grain headers
one thing in common, namely, the basic idea of using the world’s very latest
drive technology: a gearbox in conjunction with a hydraulic drive and
unit. A system that does away with chains and belts – a genuine advantage
when it comes to ensuring smooth and highly productive operation.
The second major development was Geringhoff’s hydraulic folding technology,
which offers easy handling and rapid movement from field to field. It does
with the need for a separate transport trailer and significantly increases
the daily harvesting capacity. The third big step forwards is the hydraulic
length function for optimum adjustment to different kinds and lengths of
cereal, even while actually harvesting.
- Rigid grain header with hydraulic table length adjustment
of 500 mm (from 575 to 1,075 mm) to optimize different kinds and height of
cereal, even while actually harvesting. This keeps the load on the drive
components as low as possible and saves fuel.
- A grain header with folding system. Harvesting without
long set-up times. This largely increases the capacity and efficiency of the
combine harvester, changing from the transport to the harvesting position in
just 1–2 minutes. The highlights are the automatic couplers for the reel,
auger and driveshaft.
Harvest Star* Vario
- The Harvest Star* Vario is the world’s only folding grain
header with hydraulic table length adjustment – a perfect combination. The
Vario technology guarantees uniform infeed of the crop, while the folding
technology keeps set-up times short.
- The quick and precise folding system is based on a
technically well-conceived coupling concept. Geringhoff’s automatic coupling
technology for the reel, cutter knife, auger and driveshaft has proven to be
strong, reliable and extremely durable.
- The clear view from the driver’s cab guarantees a perfect

- Sun Star* and Sun Star* Horizon: built for maximum
performance – with no compromises made
Manufacturers of harvesting machinery will only enjoy long-term success in
this globalised market if they find a convincing answer to the demand for
ever greater productivity and maximum performance. In developing the Sun
Star* product line, Geringhoff is facing up to this challenge – and defining
the global state of the art of sunflower harvesting.
- Our recipe for low-loss harvesting and great yields: the
Sun Star* feed system with a wide, tapered opening for gentle, active
acceptance of the plants with no loss of seed through spray and vibration.
Sun Star* Horizon
- Two conveyor chains feed the plants to the rotating
double blades. The two rotating, self-sharpening rotary blades separate the
sunflower heads gently and without vibration, keeping the loss of seed to a
minimum. This double-blade system is low on maintenance and offers
exceptional long life due to its cutting length of approx. 1535 mm per row.
The Sun Star* is also available as the Sun Star* Horizon with integrated
horizontal chopper – for highly effective chopping and fast rotting of the
remaining parts of the plants and short stubble.
- A folding version can also be supplied on request.
- Specially shaped covers catch any sunflower heads that
fall when vertical chains feed the heads to the threshing units at a
- The guide plates positioned high up on the two outer
covers guide the sunflower heads inwards from the ends of the header.
