AGCO Corporation announced the release of its new 9255 DynaFlex draper header for Gleaner, Massey Ferguson and Challenger combines.
“As crop genetics increase yields and farm sizes increase, growers are challenged to harvest more acres each day and sometimes they face less than ideal crop conditions,” says Caleb Schleder, tactical marketing manager for AGCO. “The enhancements to our new 9255 DynaFlex draper header are designed to help producers of soybeans, cereal crops, milo and canola harvest quickly and efficiently even when facing tough and matted or tangled crops.”
Schleder says the model 9255 was redesigned to offer heavier, larger diameter tubes with heavy-duty tines for separating and moving crops onto the 41-inch wide draper belts smoothly and efficiently.
The draper header also features a mechanically driven flywheel sickle-drive gearbox. This drive system uses a gearbox with a flywheel for maintaining cutter bar speed and momentum. The design also allows for the end skid and header end panel to be about 3 inches narrower on each end as compared to earlier models.
End skids have a new, thicker design that reduces wear and increases service life. The angle and radius of the end skid rides flatter on the ground for an increased skid footprint. The 9255 comes in 25-, 30-, 35- and 40-foot models.
