Belts and Rollers
In order to ensure proper feeding in heavy tangled crop conditions, the draper belts are joined together with connector bars while the front and rear drive roller have increased to 5” in diameter. The larger rollers and connected draper belts allow power to efficiently transfer through the system so individual belts cannot stall out in heavy crop mats or while working in tough thick stubble. Additionally the 4300 updates ensure draper belts track properly which keeps down time minimal.
Less Is More
In order to reduce areas for crop loss at the header, the 4300 utilizes 4 draper belts instead of 5 as well as improved seals in critical areas. Performance starts with the header, and making sure the header is not a source for loss is critical in maximizing profits.
Power is provided to the draper belts from a pair of hydraulic motors rather than a traditional belt drive system. The hydraulic motors provide variable speed capabilities with consistent power flow while reducing downtime associated with belt driven systems. Additionally, the auger drive chain is increased to an 80 chain for improved handling of heavy tough crop mats.
Automatic Header Height
4300 headers are equipped with position sensors on the header float system that allows automatic header height and lateral tilt functions. Utilizing automatic header height and lateral tilt functions greatly reduces operator fatigue during long hours in the cab which leads to increased efficiency and productivity.
