Slow-speed transport system:

  • 400D Drapers are towable only with W155 and W170 Self-Propelled Windrowers
  • Transport is recommended behind a tractor with seven-pin electrical lighting outlet
  • 430D, 435D and 440D Drapers only
  • Convert draper from field to transport in minutes with one person and without tools
  • Dual front dolly wheel tires and two, gauge wheel tires carry weight of transport

 

It is a simple four-step process to switch from field to transport:

  1. Move right gauge wheels from field to transport
  2. Move left gauge wheels from field to transport
  3. Attach the tongue.
  4. Detach from the windrower.
