HEADING THE RIGHT WAY WITH MACDON

by T H WHITE on April 28, 2021

MacDon combine headers draw upon more than 70 years’ experience making harvesting equipment for farmers on the rich prairie lands of Winnipeg and Manitoba in Canada. MacDon has worked directly with producers and harvesters in some of the toughest conditions around the world to ensure that its headers deliver worry-free harvesting performance with any crop, in any conditions, with any major brand of combine harvester.

The result is a range of exceptional headers which offer unrivalled harvesting performance, outstanding results and productivity.

Available in sizes up to 13.7m (45ft), MacDon FlexDraper® and Draper headers feature an instant response Active Float System which provides 4.8 degrees of lateral float and 178 mm (7in) of vertical float independent of the combine feeder house. That means you can cut extremely close to the ground without pushing soil.

The operator has On-the-Go Control – from the driving seat – of ground pressure, cutting height and fore-aft header tilt, while Active Crop Flow gently places crop on the side drapers heads-first and swiftly moves it onto the feed draper, where it’s scooped up into the combine’s feeder housing. This promotes peak combine efficiency by saving fuel, improving threshing action, creating better straw distribution, and allowing for a more productive harvest overall.

These are true multi-crop headers that are able to harvest cereals, oil seeds, beans – just about any crop in any condition.
