OSR header extension tx68, which one?

Hi, I’m looking at a 24ft header extension for my tx68, there’s a mortl or a biso I’ve seen second hand. Just wondering how difficult they are to drop on/off and if there’s any difference between the two? Any advice much appreciated, thanks!


We used a Biso for one season on a TX68, worked very well but we swapped for a CR the next season and it had a vario. If you’re doing a decent area of OSR they’re worth the hassle of putting on and taking off.

Hi I have a Zurn header it takes roughly an hour to put on but well worth it and have had it for 8 seasons. In a bad year for rape it could save you at least half a tonne per ha.


Biso on our cx, we have a bigger guard on the drive pulley side meaning the guard doesnt have to be changed and the extension pulley stays on all the time, we park combine on some appropriate blocks push the extension on, four catches fasten it on, put your belt on and done. It's getting the combine header at the correct angle that's all important so the extension pushes on easily.
