New MacDon Headers

MACDON: The Harvesting Specialists – Headers








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 THEY DO IT…

  • Close Reel to Cutterbar Relationship – The MacDon FD75 features a fixed cutter bar to reel relationship. A small critical gap between the reel fingers and the cutter bar is maintained at all times, even when in full flex, ensuring smooth feeding of the crop over the entire width of the MacDon FD75 FlexDraper® Header.
  • Active Float System – The CA25 works with the auto-header-height-control of the combine which allows for instant float-response over changing ground conditions. Coil springs mechanically provide lateral and vertical float of the header, independent of the combine feeder house which allows the FlexDraper® to float over rolling and uneven terrain.
  • Reel Performance – The MacDon reel offers 4 adjustable cam positions, allowing you to select the setting that best suits your harvest conditions. Positions 1 and 2 are for fair harvest conditions with ripe standing crop and no green weeds or undergrowth. Positions 3 and 4 allow you to put the reel in front of and below the cutter bar for lifting downed and low podding crop. You can also use the header tilt and fore-aft reel positioning for even more aggressive action when required.
  • True Ground Following Characteristics – The MacDon FD75 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 important for smooth crop feeding to the combine – even at maximum flex.
