New Rigid Draper Head

 
New Rigid Draper Head Designed To Match New Holland Combines

Grain producers can maximize the high capacity of their New Holland CR Series Twin Rotor® and CX8000 Series Super-Conventional combine in cereals, grains and other specialty crops with a rigid draper head designed specifically for New Holland combines. 
 
The 840CD rigid draper head provides uniform crop flow and reliable performance and is available in cutting widths of 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 feet. The 25- 30-, and 35-foot heads feature a single-span, plastic-tine pickup reel while 40- and 45-foot models use a dual-span reel with plastic tines. An optional upper-cross auger is available for harvesting bushy crops such as peas or canola.
 
The 840CD head features the patented New Holland SynchroKnife™ drive, which was presented with an AE50 Award by the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) as one of the most innovative product ideas to enter the market in 2011. 
 
This centre knife-drive system revolutionizes the way a combine head cutterbar is driven. The double knife drive gearbox is driven by a single hydraulic motor and is mounted in the centre of the head. This system works on the same basis as the two opposing knife drives used in larger heads, but eliminates the vibrations they can cause by continually keeping the opposing knifes perfectly synchronized. The new drive also eliminates complex drivelines, reducing maintenance needs and saving power while reducing end shield width to minimize run down of standing un-cut crop.
 
Variable-speed outer draper belts and fixed-speed twin 105.6cm centre draper belts deliver the crop smoothly to the floating 660mm-diameter auger. The auger features 127mm flighting to handle heavy crop and feed it smoothly into the combine. A flat auger floor angle aids crop flow and the auger can be adjusted up and down, to match crop.
