Macdon m 150 draper speed

Can anyone confirm that the draper speed can be indexed to ground speed on an M-150. The manual shows that it can, but I can't seem to make it function.

Yes but only while moving! When you are cutting, the MIN speed can be adjusted when you are going slow say 2mph, set it to 4 mph. then speed up and set it to +.5 for canola and +1.5 - 2.0 for cereals depending on how heavy crop is.
Thanks nicemustang, I will try again. For some reason It always shows me the min speed, but I can't seem to find the indexed speed. Once you get going faster than your min speed is that when the display changes to indexed speed. I scroll through the whole list and only see reel speed indexing.
Yes you got it...have to be at least at fast or slightly more than the min speed for it to show index speed. Set the min to 4 and then drive 6 you should see it.
That is what I am wondering also Don. It is a 2008, so one of the early models. I know I am not real monitor savvy, but for the most part this is a fairly basic monitor. I find messing around with monitors while swathing canola is not always the best scenario.
I think mine is 2010, but it the same for many years in there. Easy enough to fiddle with monitor if you have gps and cutting liberty canola :rolleyes:
Not sure...will have to pull swather out to check. Not doing that until Monday.
