MidWest - Durus
The MidWest Durus is the new series of platforms, released in 2014. MidWest Durus offers the reliability and durability you’ve come to expect from our previous Crophawk model with new features designed to give you optimum harvesting performance.
Wider – Biggest range of widths including the world’s widest platform (at 18m)
Brighter – Best lighting package on the market – LED lights for better crop visibility and rear lights to eliminate dark spots between platform and combine.
Smarter –- Unique vertical float adaptor – an ‘air-ride’ feature with adjustable bottom stop that automatically follows the ground – ideal for undulating country
Stronger – Our superior frame and components result in a straight knife for accurate crop removal.
Simpler – The clean, uncluttered design with sealed frame beams means easy cleaning for servicing, crop changes and border inspections.
Longer Lasting – Your front will stand the test of time with quality components such as heavy duty draper belts, unique cutter bar design, a choice of top class knife guards and a high quality knife drive - with true inline motion.
The Durus range includes a tractor mounted windrow – now you can get the benefits of a MidWest platform without the cost of buying a specialised windrow machine. Just hook on to your tractor and harvest your crop with ease.
MidWest fronts are uniquely designed to fit on all brands of combines – so no matter what your “colour”, we can tailor a front to suit.
Our new Quantum Quad-deck design is set to revolutionise your farming practices with one multipurpose unit that will reduce your capital outlay, maximise productivity and minimise harvest costs. Harvest your cereal crops or windrow your bulky crops like canola with the one combine and platform . Designed to suit controlled traffic farming and capable of laying out two 25’ windrows in a single pass. Talk about return on investment!
Range of models – for every budget
For the first time, Midwest is offering three different models in its range of platforms – Durus, Durus Premium, Durus Quantum – allowing customers the flexibility to select the model that best suits their needs and budget. We can still offer optional extras to customise a platform to your needs.
We’re listening so we can grow together
Like all MidWest products, the Durus design has been based on direct feedback from farmers and harvesting contractors.
MidWest platforms are designed by Australians for Australian conditions. Our genuine understanding of the soil, terrain and cropping configurations in Australia give us an edge on cheaper imports that just don’t always ‘cut it’.
We pilot test all our designs on-farm. Farmers tell us their issues and problems, what they need to make their harvest better, and the team at MidWest go back to the design office and find a way to make it happen.
Embrace the future of farming with a MidWest Durus.
