Been looking to get a better floating header than our old f530 on our 460 lexion also gonna be upgrading combine as well just wondering what guys have found works good thinking especially of the 2019 harvest season in southern manitoba in the mud
Haystack, that reads just like it could be on a brochure. Top notch marketing wank.I don’t have experience with all of these headers, but since you mentioned mud, isn’t the HydraFlex the only one that accomplishes the task without any wheels on the header? The abundance of ground sensors is the reason for that, as well as the properly optioned combine and software to automatically manipulate the header via the feederhouse height and tilt to take maximum advantage of the flexible cutter-bar’s range of flexibility. When in rigid mode there are under draper ground sensing fingers all the way to the ends of the header not just where gauge wheels would normally be, which are generally too far behind the cutter-bar as well. You get a six bat reel as a bonus.
Does Headsight control the lateral tilt and height of the feederhouse for terrain compensation based on cutterbar sensing or feeler finger sensing when operating in rigid mode?FYI--Headsight has been providing conversions to put Hydraflex/Flex Drapers on most other make models. Very popular. Just need to control the flex pressure properly. Now--the 600D is another story...it won't work on ANY other machine except matching JD machine
Yes, lateral tilt on header height is accomplished when there are 2 height sensors to signal left/right height variation. Single sensor [a'la Macdon] would be height only.Does Headsight control the lateral tilt and height of the feederhouse for terrain compensation based on cutterbar sensing or feeler finger sensing when operating in rigid mode?
