I will buy it with the macdon 1170 which is compatible with this header. I need to know if this is able to harvest canola.

Yes it will windrow canola. That is one of the main reasons it is made. But it has to attach to a macdon windrow tractor, you can not make windrows with a combine.

I am not totally sure if you can buy an FD1 center adapter and hook it to your combine or not? I don’t think you can as that header has the deeper draper like the new FD2 series has.

I'm not sure what you mean by "harvest canola." So I will assume your question is, "can this header be mounted to a combine?" I'm led to believe the answer to that question is, "no." The mount points of the XL header are not compatible with the combine adapter.

If you always harvest swathed canola, then yes, this header will work fabulously to swath canola, speeding up the harvest.

I would imagine he’s talking about swathing the canola if he’s saying it’s a 1170 tractor and 135 header.
Yes it can swath canola

I guess I meant swathing by saying 'harvesting'. I'm not familiar with the terms but thank you all for the replies, now i know this can swath canola :D

Yeah that header was designed specifically for canola with the deeper table. A far cry better from the old 15 foot versatile swather we tried to swath canola with many years ago!
