725D

Draper Platform

  • Windrowing capability with 700D Drapers
  • Double-cut knife system produces a cleaner cut
  • Dual-knife drive system is timed
  • Cutterbar is closer to the ground

Features

Two available sizes for a 700D factory-installed center feed drum improves feeding of crop into the combine feederhouse

The center feed drum is designed for efficient andconsistent feeding of the crop into the combine feederhouse.Beginning withmodel year 2020700D Draper Platforms,customers will have the ability to choose between a 356-mm (14-in.) or 406-mm (16-in.) center feed drum to be factory installed.

Feature benefit:

  • 356-mm (14-in.) or 406-mm (16-in.) diameter factory-installed feed drum significantly improves feeding of the crop
  • Strategic location improves crop handling and capacity, increasing productivity in high-volume crops such as irrigated wheat, barley, or canola
  • Combine performance is improved due to retractable fingers that enable smoother feeding
  • Capacity increase in tough conditions by 20 percent due to an upgraded center feed section slip clutch

Functionality:

The feed drum protrudes forward from the draper back sheets, improving the crop handoff from the draper side belts. An increase in slip clutch torque of the center feed drum from 1200 Nm to 1650 Nm allows for increased capacity in tough crop conditions

In some crop conditions, crop can hesitate at the corners of the feed drumbut the retractable drum fingers keep the crop moving into the combine.

Double-cut knife system produces a cleaner cut

All John Deere 700D Drapers include a double-cut knife which features a hydraulic tilt that is controlled from inside the cab. All 10.6-m (35-ft)and12.1-m (40-ft)draper cutterbars have knifeback reinforcement straps to strengthen the knifeback.

Feature benefit:

  • Maximized productivity through longer stroke of knife section provides a faster, cleaner, and smoother cut, which allows operators to harvest at faster ground speeds
  • Productivity is maximized in tough conditions through a reinforced knifeback that strengthens the cutterbar
  • Reduced cost of operation and increased wear life with hardened sickle sections and unique boron treatment
  • Hydraulic tilt optimizes the cutterbar angle for varying conditions, extending the harvest day and providing the lowest-possible cut height

Functionality

The 100-mm (4-in.) cutting action produces a cleaner cut versus the tearing effect of shorter-stroke cutting systems. Knife hold-downs are easily adjusted to help maintain harvesting performance.

The cutterbar hydraulic tilt adjusts a full 8 degrees while maintaining excellent visibility to the cutterbar throughout the tilt range.For improved ease of use, the hydro handle can be configured to control the platform tilt.

Reel resume and reverse are features on the 700D Drapers

Reel resume and reverse are featureson the 700D Drapers. The combine operator can store two different reel positions with one setting for normal conditions and another for down, tangled, short, or leaning crops.

Feature benefit:

  • Addedtime savings and convenience with saved reel positions, lowering operator fatigue
  • Increased harvest efficiency through a reel-reverse feature which reverses the reel in conjunction with the center feed drum and belt to back outplugs

Draper feeding option for the 700D

A draper feeding option is available for model year 2018 that will be offered for the full 700D Rigid Draper lineup. This option code will include larger top crop augers with the necessary hydraulic components and mounting hardware as well as an improved seal kit to keep the grain in the draper and not left on the ground.

Feature benefit:

  • Smoother feeding in tough crop conditions from a 50 percent increase in top crop auger diameter
  • Increased performance in tough feeding crops with twice the torque on top crop auger motors
  • 45 percent reduced center-feed section losses

Functionality:

The top crop auger has been increased in size from 304.8 mm to 457.2 mm (12 in. to 18 in.) with deeper auger flighting to give increased control in bushy crop conditions. This results in even feeding to the center feed drum, which creates a smooth transition to the feederhouse. The seal kit for the center feed section has added rubber seals on both sides of the center feed drum, preventing losses from grain falling outside of the center feed drum.
