MacDon 974 feeder draper problem

3081 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  farmininky
I'm running a MacDon 974 on a Case 7010. I recently started having problems with the feeder (center) draper not starting up when I engage the head. It would only move slightly if I ran it forward or backward but eventually would start working in reverse and finally in forward. I don't think it's a tension problem. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a 974 and that would happen to me if I didn't clean the dirt out of the area in front of the center draper. Dirt would fill up underneath and stop the center draper from turning. Had to clean it a few times a day and all was good. Really was only complaint with the header this year.
