The new John Deere 640FD Flex Draper Head can be fitted with the Crary Wind System (CWS), a manifold that blows air across the front of the reel to pick up weather damaged or short crop plants.
The manifold fits the factory reel arm and pushes a rapid stream of air over the cutter bar.
The wind comes from an 8-inch fan and matching aluminum manifold. The installation is powder coated for weather resistance and features 36- and 42-inch long alternating drop tubes.
The CWS fits most makes and models of combines, including Case IH, New Holland, Gleaner, Challenger and Massey Ferguson.
To learn more about CWS, visit www.crary.com.
