MACDON D65 Draper Front


The MacDon D65 Draper Header is designed to deliver outstanding straight cut performance, especially when faced with tough harvesting conditions. At O’Connors, this is one of our most popular fronts. It is of superiour quality, reliable and works in nearly every condition.


Features of the D65 Draper Header:

  • The D65 can be used for direct cutting on most current combines, as well as swathing canola, forage, and other specialty crops with MacDon 5 Series Windrowers.
  • The reel is easily adjustable to one of 4 cam positions to match harvest conditions.
  • Hydraulically adjusted reel fore-aft and header tilt functions allow easy, on-the-go changes for harvesting conditions.
  • The C-shaped cutter bar promotes smoother crop flow with one of the industry’s shortest transitions from cutter bar to the draper. Even in shatter-prone crops, it maintains a tight draper to cutter bar seal for better harvest performance.
  • Featuring the proven durability of the MacDon wobble box drive, the hydraulic knife drive enables adjustments to the sickle speed based on specific harvesting conditions.
  • Spare knife storage is now provided on 40’ (12.2m) and 45’ (13.7m) double knife headers.
  • Improved hydraulics with knife reverser and more precise draper speed control.
