High-Capacity Draper Heads

05/24/2013 @ 3:08pm

New Holland’s two new draper headers are designed to maximize the high-capacity performance of New Holland’s CR Series Twin Rotor and CX8000 Series super-conventional combines.

“Header design plays an important role in reducing harvesting losses,” says Nigel Mackenzie, with New Holland. “With the increasing sophistication of combine technology, it’s especially important for growers to be sure their header is built with the features that will be fully compatible with their combine. With New Holland draper heads, New Holland combine owners can maximize their productivity in the field.”

The new draper heads feature New Holland’s SynchroKnife drive that eliminates header vibrations and reduces overall header loss. This system works on the same basis as the two opposing knife drives but eliminates the vibrations they can cause by keeping the opposing knives synchronized. The drive also eliminates complex drivelines, reducing maintenance needs, and saving power. Having the drive in the center of the head reduces the end shield width to minimize rundown of standing uncut crop.

New Holland 840CD rigid draper headers are available in cutting widths of 25, 30, 35, 40, and 45 feet. A six-bat New Holland designed cam reel smoothly feeds crop to the cutterbar and draper belts, helping to reduce header loss.

New Holland’s 880CF SuperFlex draper header provides ground-hugging flotation. The headers are available in cutting widths of 30, 35, 40, and 45 feet.

In addition, a slow speed transport kit is available to make the switch from field to field easier. The system uses wheels that fold down hydraulically from the combine cab with a hitch attached by hand so the header can be towed with the combine.
