Remote Draper Speed Control
Draper speeds are hydraulically controlled in-cab, and are adjustable up to 800 rpm. Remote draper speed control gives you the power to quickly adjust draper speeds for varying crop conditions.
42' (106.7 cm) drapers are made of long-lasting, rubberized polyester with fibreglass reinforced slats and are V-guided to eliminate manual draper tracking.
The 3' (7.6 cm) diameter drive rollers provide traction in heavy crop conditions. Powered from the outside by a hydraulic motor, the drapers move the crop towards the centre for more uniform feeding.
The hydraulically driven reel is easily controlled using standard in-cab controls. In-cab controls allow for quick reel adjustment in changing crop conditions.
Hydraulic Header Tilt
No-wrench header tilt adjustment for header tilt control in varying crop conditions.
SCH Cutting System
The SCH Easy Cut Cutting System provides smooth, superior cutting. Spring steel guards with cutting edges on top and bottom, along with alternating, bolted, heat treated sections, eliminate the need for hold downs. The system keeps dirt and debris from accumulating under the knives for increased performance in severe cutting conditions.
The knife is driven by a 3 5/16' (8.4 cm) stroke, epicyclic knife drive which operates from 1,100 – 1,400 strokes per minute. The knife drive is driven by a low maintenance hydraulic drive motor. Double knife drive systems are available optional equipment on 25', 30' and 36' models. Standard equipment on 21'.
Fore/Aft Reel Adjustment
A hydraulic adjustment with in-cab control is available for fore/aft positioning for on-the-go response to changing crop conditions with a 16' operating range.
UHMW skid plates are standard on all models to protect the cutterbar when cutting crops close to the ground.
Standard swath opening is 81' +/- 3'. Double swath standard opening of 46' +/- 6'. Standard swath opening may be decreased by 14' or 28' on some models.
Draper Tension and Tracking
The canvas can be adjusted for tracking and tightening, which allows even tension on both the front and rear of the rollers. A quick release lever allows for ease of canvas and roller cleaning.
Easy Hook-up Lift Arm Extensions
Lift arm extension attaches to the windrower lift arm using a bolt. Lift arm assembly attaches to swather using a ‘no-wrench’ single pin attachment. New arms provide easy attach and detach of the table.
Integral Storage Transport
The self-contained transport, including hitch, jack and axle, is conveniently stored on the swather table.
Hay guard ensures a smooth transition from knife to draper and reduces material wrapping on the rollers.
Using two shifting decks, double swath gives you in-cab control for right, left and centre delivery of your windrow. Double swath option is available on 25', 30', and 36' models and on 21' is standard equipment.
Dual Wheel Hitch Carrier
Allows for easy towing of your combine header behind a pickup truck or combine. Easily transport your header through gates and down narrow roads.
Adjustable Castoring Gauge Wheels
Vertically adjustable with a screw jack and cushioned with a rubber spring for compression and rebound, castoring gauge wheels are available as standard equipment on swather tables 30' and 36', N/A on 21' and 25'. The castoring design eliminates gouging when turning.
