The speed of the side draper belts can be controlled by an adjustment on the CommandARM™ controls from within the cab. Combine software gives operators the option to slow down the side belts to a fixed speed with a push of a button on the CommandARM. Additionally, a draper belt protection system is integrated into the 600FD HydraFlex™ Draper Platform family to minimize side belt damage should slippage occur.
The 600FD Series HydraFlex Draper Platform features HydraFlex, an industry-exclusive hydraulic float system allowing for superior ground following capabilities over a wide range of crops and conditions.
From the cab, the operator can simply adjust the armrest encoder knob which varies the hydraulic pressure in the float arm hydraulic cylinders. This controls the cutterbar ground pressure depending upon conditions.
With the HydraFlex float system, the operator varies the cutterbar ground pressure but does not affect the cutting height of the crop, even at high ground speeds. The hydraulic float system features a 19-cm (7.5-in.) float range, allowing for optimum float pressure. To lock out the HydraFlex draper into rigid mode, the operator increases the float pressure to maximum.
Dual knife drive is standard on 600FD HydraFlex™ Draper Platform for harvesting rice, tough crop, and wet or green crop conditions. This unique dual knife drive system is timed, creating the smoothest possible reciprocating knife drive system currently in the industry.
Positive, reliable, power take-off (PTO) shaft and driven, dual epicyclical in-line knife drives with built-in driveline protection provides producers with the strongest knife drive system in the industry.NOTE: Single-knife drive is available on the 630FD, but increased cutterbar vibration may occur.
The 41-cm (16-in.) feed drum improves the crop handoff from the draper belts, resulting in increased material handling and productivity of the 600FD HydraFlex™ Draper Platform.
A feature for 600FD Draper Platforms is a feed drum retractable auger finger to improve crop feeding at the corners of the feed drum. In some crop conditions, the crop can hesitate at the corners of the feed drum, and the retractable drum fingers keep the crop moving into the combine. This results in smoother feeding and better performance of the combine.
Three programmable reel position settings will optimize platform performance while minimizing header losses. The operator can preselect three different reel positions for specific field conditions and can access these while harvesting, simply by touching the activation buttons on the multifunction hydro handle.
Adjust the reel height and fore-aft position to an optimal position then press the 1, 2, or 3 button on the multifunction control lever until arrows on each side of the symbol indicates that the system is active. This will save that reel position for that button which can be done for each number on the handle.
A strong, durable poly-tine pickup reel is in base equipment on the 600FD HydraFlex™ Draper Platforms. All reels feature a low-profile pickup design to allow gentle entry into the crops. Operators can reduce shatter loss with an optional factory-installed reel tine flip over kit that prevent wrapping in tough, wet and viney crops.
Maximum productivity through a one-piece reel on the 630FD and 635FD and a two-piece reel on the 640FD and 645FD that provide strength, visibility, and unobstructed crop flow to the combine
Increased uptime through a unique high-strength poly reel finger that provides 35 percent more stiffness to match the higher productivity of harvesting
Increased performance through efficient and fast feeding sweeping material from cutterbar onto draper belts
More grain makes it into the tank with a reel flip-over attachment that reduces wrapping of crop material and decreases crop losses at the reel
Flip-over attachment works best in tough, wet, viney crops such as soybeans, peas, straight cut edible beans, and canola for increased versatility
The 40.64-cm (16-in.) feed drum in tall, damp crop conditions can wrap with crop material reducing harvest productivity. A field-installed anti-wrap feed drum bundle is available to reduce wrapping at ends of the feed drum.NOTE: The 645FD has a stripping feature built into the feed drum design which does not create the need for it.
The feed drum anti-wrap attachment is recommended for tall, damp crop conditions to reduce drum wrapping. The attachment consists of two brackets that mount near the outer edge of the feed drum and reduce the likelihood of crop wrapping around the drum.
Optional ground contacting sensors are available for 600FD HydraFlex™ Draper Platforms for use when the flex cutterbar is locked into the rigid position.
