New Holland and MacDon team up to deliver FlexDraper speed and capacity

New Holland combine marketing manager Curtis Hillen.

Those looking to move to a larger, high-capacity draper header for the New Holland CR combines have a new option with the FD2 FlexDraper.

New Holland combine marketing manager Curtis Hillen says that the flex draper header is the first product from the New Holland and MacDon Industries partnership first announced in late 2021.

Hillen, on location at the 2022 Farm Progress show in Des Moines, Iowa, says the FD2 offers operators 20 per cent more capacity, 30 per cent more speed and 70 per cent more flex over past models.

The FD2 FlexDraper is available in widths up to 50 feet and is offered with a new triple reel configuration on headers 40 feet and longer, he says. All FD2 FlexDraper models will also feature the Clean Sweep Crop Keeper System to keep the crop moving in the right direction by using angled reel fingers and tines, reel endshield crop paddles, reel endshield crop deflectors and inner endshield crop deflector fingers.
