MORE ROBUST CUTTERBAR AND KNIFE DRIVES
An upgraded, low-profile cutterbar allows on-the-ground cutting—from 3/4 to 1-5/8 inches—while still maintaining a guard angle of two to eight degrees. The robust New Holland cutterbar system works well in all crops, and especially well in muddy, down and green crops. The Schumacher cutterbar system provides excellent cutting in all crops. The knife drive motor is both efficient and reliable to handle the torque resulting from tough conditions. Double heat-treated knife hold-downs have been improved to offer increased durability and easier service adjustment. Long-life, six-inch-wide, poly skid shoes reduce wear on header components in on-ground cutting applications. This design provides more reliable retention to the header, and less expensive repairs since you can replace six-inch sections rather than sections that are several feet long.
