Looking at older draper for CIH 2366

Investigating a 25ft draper for Wheat, small grains. Will be looking at 1998-2004 range. What are your thoughts on Macdon vs HoneyBee? What are the crossovers between MD/HB and the OEMs?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

My rec would be a 962 MacDon. Good basic header and it biggest advatage over a Honey bee is that it has a float system. Honey Bee's are carried on leaf springs, like the MD, but no float!!

We have a 2004 HB and a 2001 AGCO 5100.

The 5100 follows the ground very well, and feeds very nicely on a 8570. The HB has more capacity, cuts cleaner, but it is more ridgid.... If you have flat ground, I'd go HB. If you are hilly, AGCO or Macdon head.


EDIT: Both of ours are 36'
