Is there any way to increase the speed of the raise/lower on the reel of 70 series STS's. After swathing for days I can't stand the slowness of the reel raise/lower on the combine.
After all, swathers do so quickly. At least ours do. None of the combines over the years have.

Is this a Deere header?
On 60 series with a MacDon the reel cylinders are far larger requiring more oil, we removed the orifice and it was faster, but still dam slow compared to a windrower.
I was going to time a cycle but I didn't have a calendar handy.

One is macdon, other is deere.
Macdon is already darn fast too raise lower on the swather. Hate to remove orfice and have to replace while swathing.
