Gauge for Pull-Type Swathers
The indicator rod mounts on the swather frame with a metal scale attached. The gauge cable is attached to a metal bracket clamped to the hitch assembly. Once installed, you simply calibrate your scale to your swather. The indicator is sensitive to the movements of the swather. It gives reading from 4 to 20 inches in 4 inch increments, This provides accuracy and flexibility for cutting height control. The black numbers scale is also visible day or night. The MD15 Gauge is designed for new swathers, which include those with the auto-fold or similar features which use hydraulics to switch the swather into transport. This includes: Mac Don and others, possibly with some adaption.
