I am looking at trading for a 36ft 2062 draper head and have a question about the transport/gauge wheels on the back. It really looks like a mickey mouse deal for transport but do they serve any purpose in the field? I thought i read something about gauge wheels to help in uneven terrain... are these the same wheels? Or can i just take them off?

Thanks

YOu do not want the 2062 with the header transport on it..

Just get a good header trailor and pull it with it..


Also yeah there are guage wheels on each side that you set according to the stubble you want

High...med..low....

i think thats the right way to explain it

Do get a good header trailor...we have Unverferths....and they will work...i like the look of J&M's


Also it has to be for a draper head.....(trailor i mean)

Hope this helps

Bleedred: Yup, every time I see our 2062 ready for transport this little
tune starts through my head....." Who's the leader of the club that's
made for you and me?"......Just finished the second season with the
"transport system"....got along OK, and we have some fairly nasty
moves.....slow however ( doesn't like washboard gravel roads!)....
I think I see a good cart in our future. In the field.......ya gotta leave
'em on.......Casefarmer gave you the straight dope.

What are you going to put the 2062 on?? They had a 2388 with one
running around here on a demo.....everyone who ran it said it made a
tiger out of the '23' Get it in some good wheat and the 2062 is a
wheat cutting son of gun.

How do you lock it in Frown?? I lock mine in straight but did not relize you could frown. I only use the transport for storage, wish we only had gauge wheels instead of the cheesy transport.




Anyone wonder what they look like under the draper....here is our 972 ready for storage.

to lock it in frown you need have it in flex, then you need to block the header (about 1 foot high) in the middle and set the header down on it so the header goes into full frown then put one set of the locks in (I cant remember if its the outer set or inner set) then it will be locked that way and give you a few more inches of clearance under the adapter, and it doesnt look like its broken when its sitting on the transport........lol

It looks like you forgot something, it looks like it is in the smile position? To help prevent the saging we lock the header in the frown position for transport, it gets the adapter a little further away from the ground.

Thanks for all the posts guys! The head would be on an 04' 8010.
So if it has the slow speed transport it doubles as gauge wheels when in the field then? If i understood everyones comments. If it doesn't have the the transport it has gauge wheels only? I guess what I am asking is if its possible to have the transport wheels and not gauge wheels? The head i am looking at has the transport wheels and thats all thats back there.

The transport wheel are the guage wheels on the header. They swing around and lock up for the guage wheels. When transporting, they swing down and lock underneath for transport.

Saskman!! Hey, what can I tell ya....we are just a bunch of Hicks
from the Sticks! That's how the dealer told us to set up for transport....
never have had a clearance problem, and the switch is really pretty
simple. Our main complaint is the small tires on rough roads.

Have had some other minor problems with the 2062......like this
little gem from July....seems that they routed the hydraulic hoses for the reel lift through the main tube on the platform. One got a hole rubbed in it.....so out they came. When they went back on....they
ended up in a different (external) location. There was no way to get
the pressure off of the center, so this cheesy farmer special holder
had to be employed.

Not on the platform proper, but keep an eye on the bracket on the
drive motor on the RH side.......looks like they could have built this
a little beefier.

"Steep" at work on this bracket with the welder.....had some beef
on it when he got done ( we don't call him 'Capt. Gusset' for nothing)
In the lower left of the frame you get a good look at the RH leveling
cylinder. Plenty of beef in the Hillco leveling system.

A good shot of the 2062 at work at the SRS home place just east
of The Dalles....working on a big south slope.....the platform is
"flexed" into a slight "smile" position here. And before you ask, no
there trouble getting the lower side draper to feed.
