D65 Draper Headers for Combine
Sale Type
features The Active Float System Advantage

The auto-header-height-control on combines is a reactive system, meaning that it needs time to "react" to changing ground conditions. For example, if it takes 1 second to react, at 6 mph (10km/h) you will have already traveled 8' (2.5m). This lag may cause the header to get caught up on uneven terrain making for uneven cutting and/or unnecessary dirt ingestion. The active float system of the MacDon CA25 allows for an instant response over all kinds of ground conditions. Multiple Application

MacDon’s D65 Draper Headers can be used for direct cutting with most current model combines using the CA25. The D65 can also be used with MacDon 5 Series Windrowers for swathing canola, forage, and other specialty crops. Available in both single and double knife versions and in widths from 25' (7.6m) to 40' (12.2m). Reel Fore-Aft Hydraulic Positioner

Adjust the reel position to changing crop and field conditions on-the-go from the cab. Extraordinary Reel Design

MacDon's patented PR15 pick-up reel has been engineered to deliver optimal performance. The remarkable movement of this reel provides aggressive yet gentle finger action, resulting in the best pick-up action and crop recovery in the industry. Along with 4 cam positions, header tilt control, and fore-aft reel positioning, this reel can be specifically adjusted to meet your harvest conditions. 33% Increase in Draper Tension

The D65 was modified to allow the drapers to be tensioned up to 33% more than previous D60 headers, improving the drive to drapers for handling the heaviest of crop loads. Improved Visibility, Clean Design, Operating Convenience

Visibility of the float and tilt has been improved. Mounting the tilt indicator directly on the cylinder with a simplified design makes it easier for the operator to see. Automatic header height control and hydraulic header tilt are now standard features on all 5 Series Drapers. Robust Reel Drive

The MacDon pick-up reel is the most robust on the market. The special cam arms are manufactured in cast-iron to ensure it can withstand the toughest crop conditions. Reel Positioner Indicator

Reel position can be critical to the performance of your header in certain crops. Simple reel positioner indication is offered to allow your operators to better determine where their reel works best. Draper Seal

A draper seal is built into both of the side drapers and travels the entire length of the c-shaped cutterbar, preventing and crop residue from entering the underside of the drapers. V-Guide Draper Tracking

Critical to keep your drapers tracking straight, preventing premature wear to the drapers. Upper Cross Auger Option

Attached in front of the back tube, the upper cross auger improves feeding of tall, fluffy crop to the center of the draper header. This kit is ideal for straight-cutting high volume crops like canola, mustard and other tall hard to feed plants.

This kit can be used on all sizes of headers and are length specific (full width of each header size). Skid Shoes Option - Adjustable

This kit is useful when cutting low to the ground. It acts as a touch-down point when operating on rough or undulating ground. There are two separate packages available- Inboard* (black compression molded) and Outboard Skid Shoes (steel with white poly). The skid shoes are adjustable for without the use of tools.

* 30' Draper Headers require only one set of Inboard Skid Shoes while 35' and larger headers require 2 sets. Stabilizer Wheels Option

Spring loaded wheels help cushion the ends of draper headers when moving over field obstacles. This kit can be used on 30’ (9.1m) and larger headers) Self-Contained Transport Option

Our Slow Speed Transport package allows you to tow your D Series Header up to 25 mph (40km/h). This option also adds the advantage of spring-loaded stabilizer wheels for in-field use, which help cushion the ends of the header as it works through the field. Cutterbar Poly

This kit is a compression molded component that has very high wear characteristics. It is used  when cutting low podding crops like soybeans,lentils,or other lodged crops. The smooth design characteristics make this kit ideal for muddy harvesting conditions by reducing the likelihood of mud building up on the cutterbar.

This kit is available for all header sizes. Combine Conversion Kit Option- Forward Thinking*

Each MacDon Combine Draper Header comes standard with a combine adapter package to fit a specific brand of combine. Should you decide to change combine brands down the road, we offer this kit to allow you to modify your existing header / adapter to fit that different combine brand. It's simple and only takes about 4 hours to complete the conversion.
