Features



X Series Combine with 15.2-m (50-ft) draper X Series Combine with 15.2-m (50-ft) draper

Harvest acres faster than ever before with a 15.2-m (50-ft) hinged draper built off the proven foundation of the 700D and 700FD Drapers.

  • Harvest over 12.14 ha (30 acres) an hour or -129.5 ha (320 acres) a day of wheat and soybeans with one HD50R and X9 1100 Combine – When in canola, you can expect to harvest 10.1 ha (25 acres) an hour.
  • Harvest up to 13.35 ha (33 acres) more per day with a John Deere 15.2-m (50-ft) hinged draper – Go across the field fewer times and cover up to an additional 13.35 ha (33 acres) every day compared to similar 13.7-m (45-ft) models at the same ground speed.
  • Handle green stems or late-night conditions without sacrificing cut quality – When crops are tough late in the night, harvest with confidence knowing the 10.2-cm (4-in.) double-cut knife system will maintain cut quality.

Shorten your harvest by taking full advantage of the X Series Combines’ excellent feeding capacity with this hinged draper. This can be the difference between getting the crop out of the field at the ideal time or not. Do so confidently knowing the cutterbar is far less likely to stall compared to the cutterbar system used by competitors, allowing you to enter crop head on without any hesitation.

X Series Combine with 15.2-m (50-ft) draper X Series Combine with 15.2-m (50-ft) draper

The John Deere HDR Draper will follow your ground by pivoting, gliding, and flexing over uneven fields to provide the most accurate cut possible.

  • Capture more crop by adjusting to the ground – This hinged frame draper provides double the wing range of the MacDon® FD1 Draper. Industry-exclusive hydraulic suspension isolates the header from the combine, allowing it to float over the field for a more consistent stubble height. As the header approaches the extremes of the suspension system’s range of motion, active feederhouse position control automatically adjusts the feederhouse height to position itself in the middle of the attachment frame, enabling more float range in changing field conditions.
  • Harvest in difficult crop conditions – Capture downed crop with the push of a button on the CommandARM™ console to automatically raise up the gauge wheels and extend your reel out and down. Harvest the toughest lodged crop with confidence with a 24 percent increase in reel torque (compared to the 700FD).
  • Keep a clean cutterbar no matter the field or crop – A more consistent distance between the reel fingers and cutterbar (compared to the MacDon FD145) ensures crop is cleanly swept across the cutterbar and evenly fed into the combine throughout the full wing range.
  • Improve the consistency of stubble height by 25 percent compared to the MacDon FD1 in challenging terrain conditions – Achieve consistent stubble height behind the combine – an advantage for better seeding performance in no-till applications. Compared to the competition, operators no longer must leave the cab to set the cut height with John Deere height control gauge wheels. The draper automatically maintains the desired cut height while floating over the land.

This draper hinges independently from the feederhouse to meet the lay of the land. The result is an accurate cut that picks up more crop than others, moving it into the feederhouse in an even, uniform feeding, while leaving consistent stubble height in the field.

X Series Combine with 15.2-m (50-ft) draper X Series Combine with 15.2-m (50-ft) draper

The goals for a successful harvest are simple – harvest on time and put more grain in the tank. The John Deere HDR Draper is designed to not only harvest more bushels per hour and acres per day but capture more crop.

  • Reduce cutterbar loss by 25 percent – John Deere grain-saver draper belts help trap free grain before it can roll past the cutterbar onto the ground (compared to standard draper belts) with a special crosshair design, saving up to 10.9 L/ha (0.125 bu/acre) of canola which adds up to $1240 USD ($1750 CAD) a year across 607 ha (1,500 acres). 
  • Cut header loss by up to 26 percent – Decrease header loss in high-volume canola with large fingered top augers (compared to non-fingered augers) that grab fluffy crops and pull them against the draper belts. Fingered top augers let you easily straight-cut canola while saving up to 6.1 L/ha (0.07 bu/acre) and which adds up to $700 USD ($985 CAD) a year across 607 ha (1,500 acres).
  • Capture more crop with the center section seal kit – Reduce center section losses up to 45 percent, adding an extra 2.6 L/ha (0.03 bu/acre). This saves $330 (USD) / $465 (CAD) of canola a year across 1,500 acres.
  • Quickly match changing crops and conditions – Factory base equipment helps you adjust the feed rate speed, drum height, and finger timing in less than 20 minutes. In addition, convert from off-ground cutting to on-ground cutting in less than 10 seconds. This is up to a minute faster than MacDon® FD1.
  • In-cab settings help you spend more time harvesting – In-cab float pressure adjustment saves time during the day compared to out-of-cab, by-hand adjustments on competitive models. Ensure your draper is operating at peak performance with five ground condition settings to follow fields better without leaving the cab.

This list of features helps you capture more crop. While other draper manufacturers would leave grain behind, the only thing you’ll see in the rearview mirror is a field with even stubble and a uniform coating of straw, allowing you to know that during the winter, your field will be ready for next year’s seed.

The toolless, quick-attach side knives enable operators to convert from cereal dividers to side knives in less than 5 minutes. This is important for operators during times of the year where they are switching between crops throughout the harvest day.

Benefits
  • Prevent stalling when engaging in tough crop with a vertical knife driven mechanically off the cutterbar knife drive system.
  • In some varieties of spring-seeded canola, side knives provide crop separation at end dividers and prevent crop from riding up the divider and creating shatter loss while reducing buildup of material on the back top of the divider.

Feeding

Overview
Center section seal kit Center section seal kit

Minimize grain loss when straight cutting canola, oil seed, lentils, and peas with a center section seal kit.

Benefits
  • Save $330 USD ($465 CAD) a year across 607 ha (1,500 acres) by reducing canola center section losses up to 45 percent with a center section seal kit. Maximize performance in straight-cut canola by pairing the center section seal kit with top augers.

Additional details
  • In crops other than canola, oil seed, lentils, and peas (mainly wheat), there is an increased risk of side belt underfeeding pending conditions.

Get smooth, consistent crop feeding without bubbling up, even in high-volume and fluffy crops like canola and field peas. Large-fingered top augers grab and push crop against the draper belts, preventing it from going over the backsheet as it moves to the combine.

Benefits
  • Save up to $700 USD ($985 CAD) a year across 607 ha (1,500 acres) by reducing canola header loss up to 26 percent with a fingered top auger compared to a non-fingered top auger.
  • Having the ability to move the auger to the lowered position can save up to $670 USD ($945 CAD) a year across 607 ha (1,500 acres) by reducing canola losses up to 0.1 percent.

Additional details
  • There are two top auger options: a 43.2-cm (17-in.) top auger and a 43.2-cm (17-in.) fingered top auger.
  • Both augers can be manually moved vertically 100 mm (+/- 2 in.) in 25-mm (1-in.) increments.
  • Top augers enable smooth and consistent feeding to the combine to ensure constant load with the crop tucked under the auger when handing off to the center feed drum.
  • Achieve smooth headfirst feeding when auger speeds are running slightly faster than the belt speed.
  • In crops and conditions where crop mat is dense and tangled (canola/oil seed rape), a fingered auger provides additional leverage beyond the auger flighting to pull the crop under the auger and compress it against the draper belts for conveyance.
  • The fingered top auger offers cam-timed fingers compress crop onto the draper without tossing it over the draper backsheet.
  • Top augers overlap with center feed drum fingers to provide crop handoff and prevent boiling in the center feed section.

Gauge Wheels

Overview

Harvest productivity can be maximized as operators no longer have to leave the cab (compared to MacDon) to set cut height with John Deere height control gauge wheels. The operator sets the desired cutting height, and the gauge wheels automatically adjust to maintain the desired cut height, resulting in improved consistency of stubble height by up to 25 percent compared to the MacDon® FD1 Draper.

Stop leaving crop in the field and achieve consistent stubble height behind the combine – an advantage for better seeding performance in no-till applications.

Benefits
  • Achieve more consistent stubble height and straw spread with up to 25 percent better cut height consistent compared to MacDon FD145.
    • NOTE: Assumption is that a cut height within +/- 3.8 cm (1.5 in.) of target is acceptable.
  • On-the-fly cut height adjustment done completely from the cab puts the operator in control of achieving the most optimal cut height for the crop and conditions.
  • Convert from off-ground cutting to on-ground cutting in less than 10 seconds with the Hinged Draper Series. This is up to a minute faster than MacDon FD145.
  • Maintain consistent cut height across the full width of the header with wide spacing of dual gauge wheels.
  • Reduce the stress of harvest and allow operators to easily and quickly change cut height without missing down or lodged crop with down crop mode.

Additional details

  • Hydraulic cylinders are used to extend or retract two sets of gauge wheels. Compared to suspension systems, the gauge wheels automatically maintain cut height once the desired height is selected. The system is automated, but height is provided by the attachment frame and draper wing float systems.
  • Cut height can be set between 0 and 790 mm (0 and 31.1 in.).
Adjust the gauge wheels in three different ways Adjust the gauge wheels in three different ways

The position of the gauge wheels can be adjusted three different ways:

  • Active header height control (AHHC) knob
  • From the reconfigurable multifunction lever button
  • 4600 CommandCenter™ display header application
Gauge wheel Gauge wheel
Gauge wheel Gauge wheel

When producers are cutting off-ground with HDR gauge wheels, the header weight is distributed through the gauge wheels due to more points of contact with the ground. As a result, the weight that would traditionally be carried by the front axle and feederhouse will decrease significantly and be split between the header gauge wheel and the rear axle.
