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.


600D Series and 600FD HydraFlex Series Draper Platforms

A strong, durable poly-tine pickup reel is in base equipment on the 600FD HydraFlex™ Draper Platforms. All reels feature a low-profile pickup design to allow gentle entry into the crops to reduce shatter loss with an optional factory-installed reel tine flip over kit to prevent wrapping in tough, wet and viney crops.

 

Customer Value:

  • A one-piece reel on the 630FD and 635FD and a two-piece reel on the 640FD and 645FD provide strength, visibility, and unobstructed crop flow to the combine for maximum productivity
  • Unique high-strength poly reel finger provides 35 percent more stiffness to match the higher productivity of harvesting for increased uptime
  • Efficient and fast feeding sweeping material from cutterbar onto draper belts for increased performance
  • Reel flip-over attachment reduces wrapping of crop material decreasing crop losses at the reel for more grain in the tank
  • Flip-over attachment works best in tough, wet, viney crops such as soybeans, peas, straight cut edible beans, and canola for increased versatility

The reel tine flip-over attachment makes it so the reel fingers point upward when completing the rotation at the top of the reel, instead of pointing to the ground.

 

John Deere value:

  • Reduces wrapping of crop material in tough, wet, viney crops such as soybeans, peas, straight cut edible beans, and canola
  • Reduces crop wrapping and increases the draper’s capacity, which reduces losses at the reel
  • Increases visibility to the front of the draper

The optional dual zone float kit provides better platform balance for a more accurate cut height right to left. The dual zone system allows the operator to independently adjust float pressure to the right and left float cylinders. Independent float cylinders adjustments allow the platform to tilt independently or in conjunction with the feederhouse.

  • Contour-Master™ feederhouse - allows platform to stay level with the tilting feeder house.
  • LevelLand feeder house - allows platform to stay level with the contours of the ground.

Feed drum with anti-wrap brackets installedFeed drum with anti-wrap brackets installed

The feed drum anti-wrap attachment is recommended for tall, damp crop conditions to reduce drum wrapping. The attachment consists of two brackets that mount near the outer edge of the feed drum and reduce the likelihood of crop wrapping around the drum.
