Looking at Macdon hay machines and wondering if a 974 flex head will attach to any of them to make a swather. Just seeing if I can get multiple uses out of a Macdon tractor. Thanks

I was told that 974's won't work on any swathers.....doesn't mean you couldn't make it work with lots of effort, but they won't just hook up to the machine and go.

My swather had a 972 header on it when I looked at it. Got them to switch it for a 960 to cut hay. Now I put my old combine head,a 962 on it for cutting canola. I needed to change the pulley size on the sickle drive and add the short shaft on the LH lifting arm plus change the yoke to match the new shaft. I also took the gauge wheels off as they were not needed any more. So yes they will fit but you need to do a few things. Colin.

The FlexDraper won't work on a swather. It needs the adapter float to work.
