When they say draper all I think is, awesome feeding, increased speed and no more retractable fingers. Once you use a draper you will not want to run an auger ever again.

drapers rule you'll never have a flexhead after having a draper. 1-2 bushel ac less header loss. figure that one out. we use both and I can see it every day and every day. another draper coming in 09

OK fellas

How much capacity am I going to gain putting a 40' flex draper on a 9770 compared to a 635 flex head.

Do they make a 45 foot yet.

Macdon makes a 40' flex draper and a 45' rigid draper
Honey Bee makes a 45' flex.

Just in case you are interested in an aftermarket header.

Bigger Flex head from JD

Will deere ever bring out a bigger flex head? If so, when? I need something at least 40 feet.

Thanks.
