• Auger slip clutch protects auger and drive system

Built to Work in Heavy Crop Conditions

The HDX 2 Series Sicklebar Headers feature a conditioning system that is built to work in heavy crop conditions. Conditioning rolls crimp stems thoroughly for fast dry down. The roll pressure system uses a torsion bar, which allows conditioning rolls to automatically separate to clear slugs and the chevron pattern provides even windrow formation.


Rubber-on-rubber conditioning rolls are available on all models for a thorough, gentle cleaning


Steel-on-steel rolls are available on all models except the HDX122 for tough and versatile for a wide range of demanding crops

Hi-Contact Rolls

Hi-contact rolls are available on all models except the HDX122 for complete crush of plant stem; ideal for legume-type crops
