  • In 30 minutes or less, you can switch from a rotary head to a 500D Draper head, which means you can harvest small grains and hay with one traction unit.
  • Quick-change reel teeth can be removed and replaced with minimal effort and tools. Then it’s back to cutting.
  • Fully integrated controls to the draper means no need for a secondary control box.
Cutterbar - Type SCH® Easy Cut with roller guides, spring steep guards, and bolted sections / Standard: single knife / Optional: dual knife

  • Easy reel tooth replacement is done with a 90-degree turn with a wrench. It will allow the reel tooth to be removed and replaced.
  • Additional teeth can be added at any location along the extruded tooth bar.

 

 


A double swath package (hydraulic deck shift) is available as an option for the 525D, 530D, and 536D Draper Platforms.

 

Double swath is controlled from the cab using hydraulics and two shifting decks. Operators can choose right, left, or center delivery of the windrow.

 

The double swath package is a valuable asset for producers who want to combine the two windrows into one to match up with the material handling capacity of larger combines and self-propelled forage harvesters (SPFHs).

 

Additionally, the package gives the ability to discharge crop to the outside on the headland to prevent running over the windrow while cutting the rest of the field.

Second pass with right dischargeSecond pass with right discharge

The first and second passes are done with the discharge to the right of the windrower.

Left-hand discharge
Third pass with left dischargeThird pass with left discharge

The third pass is done with the discharge to the left of the windrower.

Center discharge

When the operator wants to switch back to center delivery, it can be completed with the touch of a button using the controls inside the cab.

The draper hydraulic pump control maintains knife, belt, and reel speeds regardless of engine rpm changes.

  • Results in uniform cut quality and windrow formation regardless of the terrain or engine load
  • Reduces crop loss or shatter

Belt drive motors
Motor driving the left-hand belt Motor driving the left-hand belt
Motor driving the right-hand belt Motor driving the right-hand belt

Due to the motors pulling the belt (instead of pushing in an end drive system), there is less slack in the belt. This delivers an increase in belt torque.

 

As a result, producers will experience minimal belt slippage and increased performance in heavy crop conditions due to the center-driven belt system.

500D Draper and interchangeable rotary platform 500D Draper and interchangeable rotary platform

500D Draper has an interchangeable rotary platform:

  • Interchangeable on W235 or W260 traction units in 30 minutes or less
  • Growers can use one traction unit for harvesting both small grains and hay

John Deere 525D, 530D, and 536D Drapers can windrow out of the center, right, or left ends of the draper with the press of a button using the hydraulic shift option (double swath package).

  • Larger windrows to match combine or self-propelled forage harvester
  • Match narrower-width drapers with higher-capacity harvesting
  • Place higher-density windrows in front of harvesters when yields are low
  • Discharge two windrows side by side for uniform combine or forage harvester feeding
