Large flex header

MacDon introduces a 45-ft. version of its FlexDraper flex header to keep pace with increasing combine-harvesting capacities. The new 45-ft. FD70 FlexDraper is designed to have a crop-handling capacity greater than that of most Class 9 combines.

The header’s unique three-section flex frame combined with MacDon’s draper technology offers balanced floating action in a wide range of crops, including soybeans, edible beans and all cereals. Unlike conventional flex auger headers, the flex draper header allows the header to maintain a consistently close relationship between the knife and the reel without bunching and plugging, the company claims.

The FD70 is available for most current model combines (Class 6 up to Class 9). For producers requiring a smaller header than the 45-ft. model, MacDon’s FlexDraper is also available in 30-, 35- and 40-ft. sizes. The suggested list price starts at $86,378.
