ground speed feeds the knife, reel feeds the draper... KISS
I just haven’t seen a rigid header that hinges and is able to cut like this and have the same amount of soil down force across the cutting bar while linear rate coil springs are changing length with terrain modulations. Maybe someone has one that won’t push leaf litter when it’s damp. This photo is 6 months after harvest where the residue sifted because the bean stocks are cut at the ground or a touch above.
