All John Deere 600D Drapers include a double-cut knife which features a hydraulic tilt that is controlled from inside the cab. All 10.6-m (35-ft) and 12.1-m (40-ft) draper cutterbars also have knifeback reinforcement straps to strengthen the knifeback.
- Longer stroke of knife section provides a faster, cleaner, and smoother cut which allows operators to harvest at faster ground speeds maximizing productivity
- Reinforced knifeback strengthens cutterbar for tough harvesting conditions maximizing performance
- Hardened sickle sections and unique boron treatment extends wear life
- Hydraulic tilt optimizes the cutterbar angle for varying conditions, extending the harvest day and providing the lowest-possible cut height
Double-cut cutterbar system Double-cut rock guard
Theory of Operation:
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 optional advanced hydro handle can be configured to control the platform tilt.
