Re: draper question

I would say you could probably run a 25ft draper fairly easily

Re: draper question

how would one adapt and where would the best placce be to look



run a 20 ft flex auger head now so was thinking a 25 ft draper would be bought right but

question: because they dont have flex drapers under 30' would a 25 ft rigid draper work in beans wouldn't think it would but could be proven wrong

Re: draper question

I would think it would work just fine, you would probably be better off to find a draper head that has the older 50 series hook ups (not feederhouse hooks) but the banana clips on top and then it shouldn't need any other adapting except hookups to make it work on your combine but I would still ask your local service manager.

Re: draper question

We used a 36' MacDon 973 (which is rigid) in beans and it worked fine. I'm not sure if it will cut as low as a flex header, but it get pretty darn close. I think I could have gone a little lower if the ground was smoother and the header more level.* The header being able to float on the adapter is really nice. It makes up for our combine not having fancy things like a lateral-tilt feeder.

*It kept wanting to dig in the dirt on the right side. We've done everything we can think of to level the header and that side is still a little low.
