The MacDon FD75 FlexDraper® is our latest innovation in FlexDraper technology. Even at maximum flex our fixed reel to cutter bar relationship stays true, maintaining a consistently small critical gap between the reel fingers and cutter bar. This close reel to cutter bar relationship results in smooth, consistent, heads-first feeding that significantly boosts combine productivity. That means you get up to 45' (13.7m) of true ground following characteristics that won't compromise performance.
MacDon 5 Series Drapers are designed to provide smooth, consistent headsfirst feeding to the combine, even in the most challenging harvest conditions. Feeding crop heads-first is the best way to get the most performance out of your combine - burning less fuel and taking less time to process means getting the crop off quicker and more efficiently. HERE'S HOW WE DO IT...
? Conforms to the ground with minimal ground pressure.
? Can be easily and quickly locked into rigid configuration.
? The reel is easily adjustable to one of 4 cam positions to match harvest conditions.
? Hydraulically adjusted reel fore-aft and header tilt functions allow easy, on-the-go changes for harvesting conditions.
? The C-shaped cutter bar promotes smoother crop flow with one of the industry's shortest transitions from cutterbar to the draper. Even in shatter-prone crops, it maintains a tight draper to cutter bar seal for better harvest performance.
? Featuring the proven durability of the MacDon wobble box drive, the hydraulic knife drive enables adjustments to the sickle speed based on specific harvesting conditions.
? Spare knife storage is now provided on 40' (12.2m) and 45' (13.7m) double knife headers.
? Improved hydraulics with knife reverser and more precise draper speed control.
