German manufacturer Ziegler offers a range of high-quality header trailers and specialist combine headers – including versions for oilseed rape, sunflower and maize harvesting.

The header trailer line-up includes single-axle models suitable for headers up to 7.7m working width and weighing up to 3.6t. Close-coupled, tandem-axle trailers can carry headers up to 9.5m and weighing up to 3.6t, and double-axle trailers with a 4WT (four wheel steer) axle will accommodate headers up to 15.2m and weighing up to 10T.

Abrey Agricultural managing director, Toby Abrey commented that he feels fortunate to have such a great range of products to offer, and highlighted features which make the 4WT trailers so popular.

These include:

  • V-Lock system for easy attachment and securing of the header to the trailer     
  • Main frame painted to match the combine brand colour – powder coated and oven-baked
  • Galvanised supports keep the trailer looking new – for enhanced residual value
  • Accurate following and turning into gateways whether behind the combine or a tractor
  • Standard tyres 260/75-15, but with options up to 22-ply
  • Heavy-duty, 10t-rated axles
  • Heavy-duty, twin-beam construction available on 40,45 and 50ft trailers
  • 40mm/50mm drawbar eye options
  • Overrun braking (so trailer always braked effectively whether behind the combine or a tractor
  • Back-up from the official UK importer – spare parts readily available.

At LAMMA ’24, Abrey Agricultural will be displaying the latest Corn Master maize header (pictured) – which is available in folding 6-row and 8-row versions. A new fixed 12-row header is being added to the line-up for 2024, and a 16-row model will follow later. Plastic divider covers are extremely durable but reduce weight, and allow smooth and consistent crop travel into the combine for processing. Toby said that he will have a 12-row model available for demonstrations this year, with a selection of feederhouse mounting systems for various combine brands.  

The company will also be exhibiting Ziegler’s new ZPU Proline 4001 4m twin-belt header which Toby says is ideal for crops that tend to bunch rather than flow cleanly such as borage. The 4m option is a new addition to the line-up which already includes a 3m version.
