FEATURES AND BENEFITS
B SERIES SP WINDROWER
CHASSIS
Long Wheelbase
The tractor has a wheelbase of approximately
140” (3.57 m). The long wheelbase helps
smooth the ride in rough fields, even at high
ground speeds. The smooth ride adds to operator comfort allowing the operator to run
longer and get more done.
Wheelbase
Frame
The SP185B frame is heavier than the SP165,
as it uses 1/4” welded box beams in the side
rails. The SP185B walking beam is also heavier, to better withstand the rigors of high speed
windrowing.
The SP85B and SP115B use 1/4” C-channel
mainframe rails.
Frame
Rotary Screen
(Standard on SP115B, SP185B-Optional on
SP85B)
The rotary screen sits forward of the engine,
and high on the tractor, and provides a large
volume of clean air for efficient engine cooling.
Leaves and chaff drop off the screen by use of
a dead air space, or are whisked off by the action of a screen vacuum. The rotary screen
provides clean air to the engine, with less chaff
getting into the radiator, for better cooling and
less time spent cleaning.
Rotary Screen

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
B SERIES SP WINDROWER
Rear Tires
The 14L x 16.1 high flotation rear tires allow the
tractors to glide over the roughest terrain, under
the most adverse conditions. The high flotation
tires provide the smoothest ride possible, for
less operator fatigue.
Adjustable Walking Beam Axle
The walking beam can be set for tread widths
of 84.4 in (2144 mm), 102.2 in (2596 mm), or
120 in (3048 mm). The adjustable rear-walking
beam provides excellent tracking if used in row
crop applications. The 40.7 in (1034 mm)
ground clearance allows a fluffy windrow or the
largest draper header swath to easily pass under the rear axle. The high, wide walking beam
axle does not obstruct windrow formation, for
less crop loss.
Fixed Axle and Formed Casters
(SP85B and SP115B Only)
The fixed axle and formed castors work well in
grain swathing applications. The formed castors work well in conditions where mud buildup
could cause a problem. 12.5L x 15 tires are

GROUND DRIVE & HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
Hydraulic System
The new hydraulic system uses renowned
Sauer-Danfoss components. The new system
will provide more reliability, and reduced sound
levels. The hydraulic components are built
heavier to handle higher horsepower.
Tandem Pumps
Wheel Motors
The wheel motors are now attached directly to
the planetary drive, eliminating the chain drive.
The wheel motors are enclosed in the final
drive housing, and a cover fits the housing
opening, to keep the area around the motor
clean, and to reduce sound levels.
Wheel Motor
Planetary Drive
The planetary drives have increased torque
and radial load characteristics compared to the
earlier models. This gives the machines better
pulling power on hills, or crossing ditches. The
SP115B planetary has a 42:1 ratio (compared
to 38:1). The SP115B now has a 42:1 ratio
(compared to 35:1). The SP85B has a 34.6:1
ratio (compared to 29.1).

protect them from debris and mud, but are easily accessible by removing the wheel motor
cover.
12
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
B SERIES SP WINDROWER
Header Drive
The header drive speed is set depending on
the header installed. When the electrical wire
from the header to the tractor is connected, the
tractor will know what header is attached, and
the hydraulic flow to the header is automatically adjusted. For example, a draper header
runs slower therefore requires less hydraulic
flow than a disc header.
Header Drive Pump
Header Flotation
The header flotation circuit allows the header to
follow the field contours. The flotation circuit
consists of two flotation cylinders, an accumulator, and the header lift and flotation valve.
The operator controls flotation pressure by activating the flotation pressure switch on the console, and monitors the flotation pressure on the
console-mounted gauge. The hydraulic flotation adjustment is much quicker and easier
than adjusting flotation springs. The flotation
can easily be set and monitored by the operator, for less time spent on set-up and longer
header life.
Hydraulic Reservoir
Flotation Cylinder
The hydraulic system has a 23 U.S. gallon
(87 L) oil capacity (SP85B, SP115B). The
SP185B has a 26 gallon (98 L) capacity. Two
filters (charge and return) are used to eliminate
contamination. An oil cooler keeps the oil at
optimum operating temperature.
The hydraulic reservoir has two handy sight
glasses to determine oil level. The sight
glasses can be quickly glanced at during routine servicing. The large oil capacity and large
oil cooler keeps the system running at peak efficiency, prolonging system life.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
B SERIES SP WINDROWER
Worm Gear Steering Drive
The worm gear steering gives the operator precise steering control. The movement of the
steering wheel closely resembles actual tractor
movement. The steering wheel movement in
the field is reduced, and steering action on the
road is more predictable. The worm gears are
enclosed, containing lubrication and reducing
wear. The operator can keep better control of
the machine at high field and road speeds with
less effort, reducing fatigue.
Steering Worm Gear

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
B SERIES SP WINDROWER
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Alternator
The SP115B and SP85B tractors are equipped
with a 110 amp alternator. The SP185B has a
95 amp alternator. The alternator is large
enough to handle nighttime cutting, which requires operating lights, as well as heater or air
conditioner, for operator comfort. The alternator is sized for large electrical loads, for more
reliable operation.
Alternator SP85B
Batteries
The windrower tractor is equipped with two 12volt batteries. One battery is located on each
side of the engine, for easy access. The batteries provide sufficient power to start the machine in adverse conditions, for less downtime.
Battery
Fuses and Circuit Breakers
The fuses and circuit breakers for the electrical
system are located beneath the control panel in
the cab. An instructional decal placed near the
fuses shows the fuse sizes. The fuse location
is ideal for protection from elements and for better serviceability.
15
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
B SERIES SP WINDROWER
External Battery Booster Posts
Challenger windrowers are equipped with external battery booster posts. These posts are
located on the left side of the engine main
frame. The posts eliminate the need to raise
the hood when jumping the windrower, or provide a handy place to attach cables to jump
another vehicle. The booster posts are easily
accessible for convenient use of jumper cables.

ENGINE AND ACCESSORIES
Engines
The new Challenger windrower engines meet
all Tier II emissions standards.
♦
The SP185B engine is a 185 hp, 5.9 liter,
turbocharged and intercooled Cummins
QSB 185A engine.
♦
The SP115B engine is a 115 hp, 4.41 liter,
Direct Injection Turbocharged Caterpillar
3054E engine.
♦
The SP85B engine is a 85 hp, 4.41 liter,
Direct Injection Naturally Aspirated Caterpillar 3054C engine.
Engine
The SP115B and SP185B engines use an electronic fuel injection system, which is more precise and responsive. The engine torque is better than on previous mechanical versions.
Intercooler
(SP185B Only)
The engine uses an air-to-air intercooler. The
turbocharged compressed air is cooled as it
flows through the intercooler. Cooling the
charged air allows it to be compressed more
than hot air. More compressed air can then be
pushed into the intake manifold, and from there
into the cylinders. The cooled, compressed air
mixes more thoroughly with the injected fuel, so
the fuel is burned more completely, giving more
power with less emissions.
17
Intercooler
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
B SERIES SP WINDROWER
Fuel Tank
The SP85B and SP115B tractors are equipped
with a 60-U.S. gallon fuel tank (227 L). The
SP185B has an 80 gallon (303 L) capacity.
The large tanks provide enough fuel for 10
hours of field operation. The fuel tank is easily
accessed by use of the service platform and
folding ladder. The large fuel tank allows the
machine to run longer without refueling, increasing productivity.
Fuel Tank
Radiator
The cooling system capacity on the SP85B and
SP115B is 22 quarts (20.8 L). The SP185B capacity is 36 quarts (34.1 L). Cleaning and filling
the radiator is made easier by the use of large,
top hinged shields, and slide out oil cooler and
air conditioner condenser. A large, accessible
radiator keeps the engine running at peak efficiency, for long life.
Radiator
Aspirated Air Cleaner
The exhaust air flow creates a vacuum on the
air cleaner canister, drawing off the heavier dirt
particles and expelling them. The aspirated air
cleaner extends service intervals so less time
needs to be spent cleaning the air filter, reducing maintenance time.
Air Filter

CUTTERBAR
Gear to Gear Cutterbar
Both the 12’ and 15’ 3” cutterbar are a spur
gear design. Each gear assembly and adjacent
idler gear can be individually removed and serviced, without disassembly of the cutterbar, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.
The spur gear design allows the cutterbar profile to be thinner, allowing closer cutting with
less scalloping.
Cutterbed
Cutterbar Gears
The cutterbar gears have heavy duty, wide profile teeth. The wide profile increases the gearto-gear tooth contact area, improving the load
carrying capacity of the gear. The gear teeth
are “shaved”, which is a higher-grade finish
than on standard gears. The shaving process
reduces the possibility of cutterbar contamination, and allows the teeth to mesh better, providing quieter and smoother running gears.
The cutterbar gears have shaved, wide profile
teeth, giving higher load carrying capacity and
smoother operation, for long life and troublefree operation.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
DKHB DISC HEADER
Sealed Bed Bearings
The bed bearings are sealed, which gives several advantages:
1) Bearing life is longer, as any contamination
in the bed will not cause bearing failure.
Longer bearing life makes for a long life cutterbed, for less machine downtime.
2) The primary lubrication for the bearings is
self contained in the sealed bearing. The oil
for the bed lubrication is mainly to coat the
gear teeth, so the quantity of lubrication
required for the bed can be reduced. This
saves time and money when servicing the
machine.
Sealed Brgs
Cage Crop Conveyors
The crop is conveyed to the 110” conditioner
roll opening by a series of rotating cages. The
second cage is set back, and the third cage is
half height. Crop flow is smoothed, and it is especially evident in heavier crops. The cages
smoothly deliver the crop to the helper and conditioner rolls.
The cage crop conveyors
smoothly move crop to the conditioner opening,
maintaining high output in all crop conditions.
Cage crop conveyors
Turbulence Reduction Roll
The turbulence reduction roll moves the crop
from the cutterbed to the conditioner rolls. The
turbulence reduction roll allows the conditioner
rolls to be moved back 8”, so the amount of air
turbulence directed forward is reduced, which
improves cutoff in light crop conditions. The
turbulence reduction roll helps improves cutoff
in light crop conditions, and maintains smooth
crop flow in heavy crop, improving machine
versatility.

HAY CONDITIONER
Fully Engaged Conditioner Rolls
The crop is crimped by the action of the conditioner rolls cracking the plant stem along it’s entire length. Crop leaves are retained, for higher
hay protein content.
Conditioner rolls are available from the factory
steel on steel only, as it has been found that
rubber roll wear is unacceptably high in a high
capacity disc mower conditioner. The fully engaged conditioner rolls conditions the plant
stems with reduced leaf loss, and steel-on-steel
design wears less, for superior quality hay and
long machine life.
Steel on steel Rolls
Conditioner Drive
The spur gearbox directly drives the conditioner
rolls through u-joint drive shafts. The gearbox is
continually lubed, so maintenance is reduced.
The u-joint drives to the conditioner rolls are
very durable. They are designed to withstand
the rolls continual opening and closing. The
continually lubed gearbox and u-joint drive
shafts provide quiet and reliable drive, for lower
maintenance expense and less downtime.
Conditioner Drive
110-inch Conditioner Rolls
The 110-inch wide rolls allow the crop mat to
be spread out, so the rolls aren’t opened as
wide in heavy crop. This gives the rolls room to
open farther, even in the heaviest crops. Because the crop mat is thinner, each individual
crop stem can be conditioned more uniformly.
The wide rolls condition the crop more uniformly and thoroughly, increasing the total
value of the crop.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
DKHB DISC HEADER
Header Drive
The cutterbar is driven by a hydraulic motor on
each end of the header. This equalizes the
torque load across the entire cutterbar, for
longer life. The header speed can be adjusted
separately from the engine speed, from 0 to
2600 rpm. The engine speed can be reduced
while still maintaining full cutterbar speed,
maximizing fuel efficiency. The dual header
drive spreads the torque load and the header
speed is adjustable, for a more efficient machine in both design and function.

Cutterbar Shield Curtains
The cutterbar shield curtains are held together
with magnetic catches. The catches hold the
curtains together, to keep material from flying
from under the cutterbar. The magnets make
latching easy and secure. The cutterbar shield
curtains held together with magnetic catches
form a ring around the cutterbar for security,
but are easily unlatched for easy cutterbar service.
Curtain Magnet Open
Forming Shields
The forming shields can be set to operator’s
preference. The adjustable rear deflector shield
slows crop momentum to allow it to fall gently

Hydraulic Header Tilt
The header tilt cylinder regulates the header
angle from 0° up to 10°. For normal operation, a
0 to 4° header tilt angle is used. A steeper angle can be used when cutting down or rank
crop. But in the steeper cutting angles, the cut
will be wavier. The hydraulic tilt allows the operator to change the header tilt from the cab,
better matching field conditions for increased
performance.

SERVICE PARTS
Knives
Several versions of knives can be ordered
through AGCO Service Parts to contend with
different crop conditions. The standard knife on
the DKHB header is the 18° bottom bevel.
Four styles of knives are available:
11° Top Bevel – Provides a good quality of cut
in most crops and conditions, but if the knife is
deflected down, tends to cut into cutterbed.
11° Combination Bevel – One side is bottom
bevel, and the other is top bevel. Can be used
to compare the quality of cut between the two
styles of bevel.
11° Bottom Bevel – Good quality of cut, provides some rock protection, as if knife is deflected, it doesn’t tend to dig into the cutterbed.
The knife also tends to stay sharper longer.
18° Bottom Bevel – Provides additional lift in
down or light crop conditions. Because of the
higher lift, the 18° take more power than the 11°
knife.
Important: Only install approved AGCO Service

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
AHB SICKLE HEADER
CUTTERBAR
Lean Bar
The purpose of the lean bar is to push the crop
forward and down, so that after being cut by the
sickle, it will feed through the augers and into
the conditioner butt-end first. The lean bar
should catch the crop between one-third and
one half the crop height. Proper adjustment
ensures crop is not fed head first, which will result in greater leaf shatter. The lean bar’s
proper adjustment is important for correct crop
orientation, leading to higher quality hay or forage.
Lean Bar
Guards
The header guards have a vertical wear surface which helps keep the sicklebar from riding
up, keeping the sickle sections against the
ledger of the guard. Cleaner cutting and longer
guard and sickle life are the result.
Sickle Guards
Adjustment-free Hold-downs
Flat, adjustment-free sickle hold-downs allow a
close tolerance to be maintained between the
sickle and guards for a easier and cleaner cutting job, with less cutting component and sickle
drive mechanism wear. The adjustment-free
hold-downs extend the life of the cutting parts
twice the normal life, reducing maintenance
and service intervals.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
AHB SICKLE HEADER
Guard Angle
The header tilt cylinder or turnbuckle (SP85B)
regulates the guard angle from 5O up to 12O.
For normal operation, a 12O guard angle is
used. At this angle, the guards slide under and
pick up the crop better. When rocky conditions
or uneven ground exist, a lesser degree angle
setting can be set to prevent the sickle guards
from picking up rocks or digging in so readily.
The guard angle can be easily set to optimize
header performance in all crop conditions.
Guard Angle
Half-Swaybar Sickle Drive
The AHB headers feature a half-swaybar sickle
drive and a counterbalanced flywheel. The halfswaybar drives the sickles in a smooth, reciprocating motion. Peak starting, stopping, and cutting loads are reduced. The half-swaybar
sickle drive provides smooth operation, for
longer life of the cutting components.
Sickle Drive
Sickle
The AHB headers use a double sickle, for
greater capacity. The sickles use top serrated
sections, which are suitable for most crop conditions. The sickle sections are bolted to the
sickle instead of riveted, which makes field replacement of broken sections easier. The dual
sickles overlap at the center of the header to
provide good cutting action and prevent crop
stripping where the sickles meet.

REEL
5 Bat Reel
The five bat reel is standard, allowing crop to
move to the augers in a smooth and uniform
manner. Each reel bat will take a smaller “bite”
than a four bat reel, and the conditioner will be
fed smoothly. Plugging and bunching at the
conditioner roll is minimized. The reel bat spiders are bolted to the bulkheads, so a sixth bat
can be installed (available through Service
Parts). The five bat reel provides for smooth
crop flow through the machine, providing a
higher quality windrow or swath.
Reel
Reel Drive
The reel is belt driven, eliminating the need for
a slip clutch. Belt slippage will absorb the shock
of reel stoppage by obstructions. The reel
speed is adjustable from 65 to 75 rpm by adding shims to the split drive sheave (A slowdown
sheave is available through Service Parts).
The reel speed can be easily changed to match
field conditions, independent of ground speed.
The belt reel drive is an effective means of driving and protecting the reel, with minimal maintenance expense.

Tine Tube Bearings
The tine tube bearings on the AHB header are
sealed ball bearings. The ball bearings don’t
need to be replaced as often as nylon tine tube

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
AHB SICKLE HEADER
DUAL AUGERS
Counter Rotating Dual Augers
Dual augers convey crop gentler and smoother
than single augers. The reason is because
dual augers have two “live” feeding elements
(the augers) conveying the crop between them,
as opposed to one “live” element (auger), and
one “fixed” element (header pan). This provides a smoother transition from the reel to the
conditioner rolls, for increased capacity with
less hesitation and bunching.
The single auger used by competitors tends to
let crop under it, disrupting any butt-first feeding
of the crop, allowing leaves to be torn away
from the plant stem, and in heavy crop, allows
the auger to float up and down. The floating
action allows the crop to feed into the conditioner in bunches, causing lumpy windrows and
uneven crop drying. The dual augers are fixed
in position and do not float. Crop flow is
smoother than on a machine with a single floating auger, both in light and heavy crops. The
dual augers continue the “butt-first” crop orientation started by the lean bar and reel. Smooth
crop flow produces a more uniform drying windrow.
Dual Augers
Dual Augers 2
A larger variety of crops can be cut and laid into
a smooth windrow, with little or no adjustment.
The spacing between augers has been increased over previous models by 1.4”, reducing
the possibility of objects wedging between the
augers and increasing capacity. The AHBheader also has split augers, with center supports on both the top and bottom augers, for
less vibration and reduced chance of damage
The dual augers keep crop correctly oriented,
and flowing smoothly and quickly, for increased
productivity and higher quality hay.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
AHB SICKLE HEADER
Removable Auger Pans
In conditions with abrasive sand or dirt, the
lower header pans can be removed to allow the
dirt to fall through and reduce wear on the auger. The removable auger pans help reduce
auger wear, extending auger life and reducing
maintenance expense.
Auger Pans
Auger Slip Clutches
The augers are slip clutch protected from
damage when rocks or other foreign material
get into the headers. Each auger has it’s own
slip clutch. The auger slip clutches protect the
augers from damage, prolonging auger and
header life.

HAY CONDITIONER
110 Inch Conditioner Rolls
The 110 inch conditioner rolls are offered as
rubber-on-steel or steel-on-steel configurations.
Both offer superior crimping conditioning, but
the steel-on-steel configuration gives longer life
in abrasive soil conditions. The 110 inch wide
conditioner rolls are fully engaged, not intermeshed, so the crop is crimped, and not
crushed. The crop is crimped by the action of
the conditioner rolls cracking the plant stem
along its entire length. Crop leaves are retained, for higher hay protein content.
Rubber-steel Rolls
The 110 inch wide rolls allow the crop mat to be
spread out, so the rolls aren’t opened as wide
in heavy crop. This gives the wide rolls the
room to open farther, even in the heaviest
crops, and since the crop mat is thinner, each
individual crop stem can be conditioned more
uniformly. The 110” wide, engaging rolls give
the header high capacity while crimping the
crop uniformly, allowing more acres of high
quality crop to be cut per day.
Steel-steel Rolls
57
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
AHB SICKLE HEADER
Conditioner Roll Feeding Angle
The augers feed the conditioner rolls at a consistent angle. Both auger and conditioner rolls
are attached to the header, so head float does
not change the angle of the crop entering the
conditioner rolls. The consistent feed angle reduces the chance of crop hesitation and bunching, resulting in smoother, quicker drying windrows.
Feed Angle
Conditioner Drive
The conditioner is driven through a spur
gearbox directly through u-joint drive shafts.
The gearbox is continually lubed, so maintenance is reduced. The u-joint driveshafts
to the conditioner rolls are very durable, designed to withstand the rolls continual opening and closing. The conditioner drive employs a continually lubed gearbox for minimal maintenance and long service life.
Conditioner Drive
Roll Spacing
The roll spacing is easily changed with an
adjustment bolt (1) on each end of the
header. A roll gap gauge (2) is located on
each side of the header, so the operator
can easily see where the roll gap is set. The
ease of adjustment and the ability to check
it encourage the operator to keep the rolls
in adjustment. The easy roll spacing adjustment allows the operator to maintain
ideal roll adjustment with less time and effort, increasing overall machine efficiency.
Roll Spacing

FEATURES AND BENEFITS
AHB SICKLE HEADER
Conditioner Roll Pressure Release
The conditioner rolls utilize an over center
cam at each end that allows the rolls to
open easier when an obstacle or clump of
hay is encountered in the field. The over
center cam will automatically reset the rolls
after the obstruction has passed through
the conditioner rolls. The operator is not required to stop and lift the header, as are
competitive designs which open the conditioner rolls as the header is raised. The
conditioner roll pressure release system allows the operator to keep cutting with less
lost time, and more productive time, for a
faster hay harvest.

HEADER MAINFRAME
Forming Shields
The side forming shields are non-metallic, reducing crop buildup and enhancing windrow
formation. The shields also won’t rust when the
machine sits over the winter. The adjustable
rear deflector shield slows crop momentum to
allow it to fall gently into a tall, fluffy, quick drying windrow. The forming shields and rear deflector can be set to the operator’s preference.
The forming shields allow the operator the versatility to set them based on crop conditions, so
the crop can dry quicker and be harvested with
minimum delay.
Forming Shields
Swath Shield
The swath shield adjustment can be done with
minimal effort and no tools. In some high humidity areas, laying out a wide swath cures the
crop faster than narrower windrows. The operator can choose the windrow or swath width that
is right for a particular area. The swath shield
can be set to any position from narrow windrow
to full width swath (40—96”), for greater machine versatility.
(Shown with optional
Swathboard Actuator)
Swath Shield
Header Wear Plate
A full width wear plate is standard on the bottom of all auger headers. The wear plate allows
the header to skid over field obstructions, without damage to the header shell. The header
wear plate helps prolong header life, and reduces header maintenance.

Skid Shoes
Skid shoes can be raised or lowered easily
without tools to adapt to different crops or field
conditions. The skid shoes can be adjusted for
various cutting heights up to five inches. The
skid shoes are easily set for maximum operator
convenience and crop adaptability.
Hydraulic Header Flotation
Skid Shoe
Flotation can be regulated during operation of
the machine from the cab with an electric
switch located on the tractor’s instrument panel.
Flotation pressure can be raised or lowered on
the go, depending on crop or field conditions.
The header flotation is accomplished with a nitrogen charged hydraulic accumulator and hydraulic cylinders installed on the tractor. The
hydraulic header flotation allows the operator to
adapt the header flotation to any crop or field
condition on the go, improving timeliness and
reducing potential header damage.
Flotation Cylinder
Header Walkway
A walkway has been added to the header. The
walkway can be accessed from the left tractor

CUTTERBAR
Cutterbar Profile
The cutterbar has been designed for smooth
crop flow over the top. The skid plate along the
bottom of the cutterbar also gives it the ability
to cut close to the ground.
Cutterbar
Sickle Drive
The sickle drive is a hydraulically driven planetary gear system. The planetary gear system is
in rotation at all times, so there are no peak
starting and stopping loads as in a wobble box
system. The drive also maintains a high cutting
force, so it works well in all cereal, grass and
forage, and specialty crops. The sickle drive
system is very simple, as it uses no shafts,
belts, or sheaves, reducing maintenance.
Sickle Drive
Sickle Drive Planetary Gearbox
The planetary gears produce an absolutely linear knife movement compared to a wobble box
system. The gears are in exact alignment with
the knife, so the knife doesn’t move up and
down, or side to side during it’s stroke, for better cutting performance, and less sickle and
guard wear.
67
Planetary Gearbox
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
DHW DRAPER HEADER
Sickle Over-Stroke
The sickle is designed to over-stroke in each
direction. The over-stroke ensures that the
sickle will travel its full length of stroke, especially in a difficult to cut crop, resulting in less
sickle knock.
Sickle Over-stroke
Hold Down Clips
The hold down clips require no adjustment, but
if bent, can easily be straightened with a hammer. The sickle hold downs don’t need regular
adjustment, which saves the operator time.
Hold downs
Draper Guards
The draper guards deflect crop over the front
edge of the draper belts, preventing crop from
getting under the belts, and wrapping on the
draper rolls. By keeping the crop from wrapping on the rolls, it is easier to keep the draper
belt tracking true, prolonging the draper belt
life.

Draper Belts
The draper belts are made of heavy duty polyester with a nylon ply for extra durability. The
belt has been improved with heavier nylon reinforcement, giving the belt more rigidity and less
stress concentration. The belts are 41 in (1041
mm) wide, with fiberglass rod reinforced cross
slats. The heavy duty belt with reinforced cross
slats provides a longer lasting draper belt for
less maintenance costs.
Draper Belts
Draper Shift
The shiftable draper header can operate in the
center delivery mode, or with the drapers
shifted to the right or left. To double swath, the
operator shifts the left draper to the center using the two position switch in the cab (Arrow).
The two draper carriages can then be locked
together, using the lever on the header. The
carriages can then be shifted for right or left
end delivery. When the draper carriages are
shifted, the draper belt rotation is also set automatically.
Draper Shift
Center delivery draper heads can have the right
draper deck manually shifted, and the hoses to
the draper drive motor switched, for right end
double swathing.
Draper Speed
The draper belts on both sides are driven by a
hydraulic motor, and are adjustable using a toggle switch on the right control console (Arrow).
The draper hydraulic motor speed is adjustable
from 0 to 600 feet per minute, so the operator
can adjust the speed to match the crop conditions.
