CRITICAL GAP - IT'S THE FD75 ADVANTAGE

The MacDon FD75 FlexDraper® features a fixed cutter bar to reel relationship. This means a small critical gap between the reel fingers and the cutter bar is maintained at all times, even when in full flex. This small gap ensures smooth, consistent, heads-first feeding of the crop over the entire width of the FlexDraper® Header, up to 45' (13.7m). That’s innovation significantly boosting combine productivity. 

 

FD75 FLEXDraper®
The MacDon FD75 FlexDraper® is a floating, three-section flexible header with a split reel allowing the entire header frame, cutter bar and reel to follow ground contours as a unit – while maintaining the small, consistent reel to cutter bar relationship. This is important for smooth, consistent, heads-first feeding to the combine – even at maximum flex. This means excellent ground following capabilities even on terraces or ditches.


THE OTHER GUYS
On the other hand, the other guys' rigid frame relies on the movement of the flexible cutter bar to follow ground contours. To accommodate the flex, reel fingers must have excessive clearance to avoid damage from the cutter bar. This results in a large gap and inconsistent relationship between the reel and cutter bar as the cutter bar follows contours in the field.

ULTIMATE 2-IN-1 HEADER

The FD75 FlexDraper® switches easily from flex to rigid application with the quick flip of a lever. This amazing feature allows the FD75 to provide outstanding performance in just about any crop and under any ground condition. Available in 30' (9.1m) to 45' (13.7m) widths, making this the most productive Draper Header that MacDon has ever produced.

EXTRAORDINARY REEL DESIGN FOR OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

MacDon's patented PR15 pick-up reel has been engineered to deliver optimal performance. The remarkable movement of this reel provides aggressive yet gentle finger action, resulting in the best pick-up action and crop recovery in the industry. Along with 4 cam positions, header tilt control, and fore-aft reel positioning, this reel can be specifically adjusted to meet your harvest conditions.

IMPROVED VISIBILITY, CLEAN DESIGN, OPERATING CONVENIENCE

Visibility of the float and tilt has been improved. Mounting the tilt indicator directly on the cylinder with a simplified design makes it easier for the operator to see. Automatic header height control and hydraulic header tilt are now standard features on all 5 Series Drapers.

THE ACTIVE FLOAT SYSTEM ADVANTAGE

The auto-header-height-control on combines is a reactive system, meaning that it needs time to "react" to changing ground conditions. For example if it takes 1 second to react, at 6 mph (10km/h) you will have already traveled 8' (2.5m). This lag may cause the header to get caught up on uneven terrain making for uneven cutting and/or unnecessary dirt ingestion. The active float system of the MacDon CA25 allows for instant response over all kinds of ground conditions.

CUTTERBAR POLY

This kit is a compression molded component that has very high wear characteristics. It is used when cutting low podding crops like soybeans, lentils, or other lodged crops. The smooth design characteristics make this kit ideal for muddy harvesting conditions by reducing the likelihood of mud building up on the cutterbar.

This kit is available for all header sizes.

REEL FORE-AFT - HYDRAULIC POSITIONER

Adjust the reel position to changing crop and field conditions on-the-go from the cab.

CASTINGS REPLACING WELDMENTS

Many of the complicated weldments have been replaced with castings. This simple change allows for a more repeatable product - which in turn makes your product last longer than ever before.

PARKER HOSES AND COUPLERS

By using high quality Parker hoses throughout the FD75, we have been able to provide the most reliable FlexDraper to date.

RIGID TO FLEX IN SECONDS

Convert your FD75 from rigid (lock) to flex (unlock) in seconds. It is really that simple! 

DRAPER TENSION INCREASED 33%

This simple change allows the drapers to be tensioned up to 33% more than previous FlexDraper headers, improving the drive to drapers for handling the heaviest of crop loads.

REEL END SHIELDS REDESIGNED

The reel endshields were redesigned for less carryover of crop and to allow more clearance between the reel and header endshields.

ROBUST REEL DRIVE

The MacDon pick-up reel is the most robust on the market. The special cam arms are manufactured in cast-iron to ensure it can withstand the toughest crop conditions.

REEL POSITIONER INDICATION

Reel position can be critical to the performance of your header in certain crops. Simple reel positioner indication is offered to allow your operators to better determine where their reel works best.

STEEL REEL FINGERS

An optional steel finger configured FD75 is now avaible. This feature is useful to maximize the duraility in rice applications.

Only available for rice applications. 

DRAPER SEAL

A draper seal is built into both of the side drapers and travels the entire length of the c-shaped cutterbar, preventing and crop residue from entering the underside of the drapers.

V-GUIDE DRAPER TRACKING

Critical to keep your drapers tracking straight, preventing premature wear to the drapers.

KNIFE STORAGE

A spare knife can be ordered and installed into the back-tube of any size of FD75  header at the factory.
