Windscreen on 615P

615P hydraulic windscreen615P hydraulic windscreen

The hydraulic windscreen on the 615P allows the operator to maximize productivity by controlling the crop flow in changing windrow conditions.

 

Feature benefit:

  • Adjustments made from the cab
  • Control crop flow in changing windrow conditions
Functionality
Manual tilt adjustment for windscreenManual tilt adjustment for windscreen
#

The hydraulic windscreen utilizes double-acting cylinders which react quicker in maximizing the control of the crop. The windscreen is controlled by the fore-and-aft control on the combine hydro handle. A benefit is the header backshaft speed can be controlled independently of the windscreen allowing for increased belt pickup, and auger/feederhouse chain speed for tough windrow conditions.

The 615P features a dual-belt draper to enhance material flow into the combine when harvesting windrows. 

 

Feature benefit:

  • Smooth material flow into the auger
  • Increased material handling capacity
  • Allows crop to fall from the pickup belts
Functionality

The transfer belts move crop under the 66-cm (26-in.) diameter auger. This provides significant material handling advantages in large/dense windrows.

The 615P features 4.5-m (178-in.) wide belts for enhanced belt tracking with reduced seed loss.

 

Feature benefit:

  • Eliminates the need for a complicated center-support roller
  • Reduces seed loss
  • Improved belt tracking
Functionality

Connectors between belts improve belt-drive capacity in tough windrow conditions without the need for a center support on the drive rollers. This design eliminates roller flanges which would create a gap between belts and could result in crop losses. The heavy-duty 615P belts are designed for maximum wear life.

The 615P features a belt tensioning system for extended belt and roller life.

 

Feature benefit:

  • Belts are evenly tensioned for uniformed loading
  • Easy adjustment that requires minimal tools
  • Minimizes seed loss

The exclusive FieldGlide suspension system features an adjustable air spring and heavy-duty hydraulic shock design to dampen movement during field operation, allowing the operator to increase harvesting speed.  Once set, the air springs do not need adjustment during the season. 

 

Feature benefit:

  • Improves windrow harvesting performance
  • Harvest at faster speeds
  • No tools needed
Functionality

Adjustment of the air springs requires no tools and is simple compared to other belt pickup suspensions. Adjust the air springs according to instructions located on the belt pickup side sheets.

600 Series HydraFlex Platforms
Wedge kitWedge kit

In certain field conditions, when harvesting with 600 Series cutting platforms attached to pre-60 Series combines equipped with tall drive tires (for example, 35.5x32-in. or 42-in. dual wheels), it may not be possible to obtain the desired or optimum cutting bar angle. This is due to the extreme height of the drive tires, especially if used in conjunction with the tall 18.4x30 or 28Lx26 high-flotation rear steering tires.

 

The wedge kit allows the lower frame of the platform to be tilted upward to any one of three different degrees when attached to the combine so the desired cutter bar angle adjustment can be obtained.

Distance between center of F.H. and the groundDistance between center of F.H. and the ground

The following chart and illustration below can be used to help determine if the wedge kit is required on the platform for the combine being used.

 

Position machine on flat level ground with platform removed.

 

Position feederhouse so face is perpendicular to the ground. To check this, a bubble level can be placed on the face of the feederhouse.

 

Measure distance (A) between the center of feederhouse drive shaft and the ground.

 

Compare dimension to table and determine amount of wedge angle required.

Three programmable reel position settings will optimize platform performance while minimizing header losses.  The operator can preselect three different reel positions for specific field conditions and can access these while harvesting, simply by touching the activation buttons on the multifunction hydro handle.

 

Feature benefit:

  • Three programmable positions to optimize platform performance
  • Reduces operator stress by conveniently moving the reel to a preselected position to minimize header losses
Fore-aft reel resumeFore-aft reel resume
#

Functionality:

 

Adjust the reel height and fore-aft position to an optimal position then press the 1, 2, or 3 button on the multifunction control lever until arrows on each side of the symbol indicates that the system is active. This will save that reel position for that button which can be done for each number on the handle.


The stainless-steel feed plates on the 600F Series Platforms have a flat profile. This along with the stainless-steel material, results in smoother feeding into the platform auger. The 600F offers an optional tall stone dam at the cutterbar to help prevent rocks from entering the platform.

 

Feature benefit:

  • The stainless-steel feed plates have a flat profile that provides smoother feeding into the platform auger.
  • The feed plates pivot from the rear. During normal operation, the profile of the feed floor is flat, which improves feeding geometry and also maintains a consistent clearance between the reel and cutterbar, allowing improved crop flow from the cutterbar to the auger.
  • Short stone dam is in base equipment and recommended for use in tall, short, and no-till crop conditions. The short wall of this stone dam provides smooth feeding without affecting crop flow into the platform
  • Tall 50-mm (2-in.) stone dam is available as a factory-installed option and is recommended where extremely rocky field conditions exist. The taller wall of this stone dam acts as a barrier to prevent rocks from entering the platform and the possibility of ingestion into the combine.

The flat feed plates also allow a consistent clearance between the reel and cutterbar improving crop flow from the cutterbar to the auger.
