Bigger. Faster. Flexier.
More Capacity. More Speed. More Flex. The all-new FD2 gives you more of everything you need for harvesting performance from the company that brought you the Original FlexDraper®.
A Ground Following Dream.
MacDon's legendary ground-following ability continues with the FD2. MacDon's Active Float System gets coupled with up to 70%* more flex for a harvesting experience like never before. Flex-Float Technology® gets turned up with MacDon's optional ContourMax™ Contour Wheels. These wheels allow the header to follow the field's contours, leaving a consistent stubble height while cutting from 1 to 18 inches+ off the ground.
+2.5 cm (1”) / 45.7 cm (18”)
*Compared to previous model.
Cut Cleaner. Cut Faster. Cut More.
MacDon's ClearCut™ High-Speed Cutting System delivers just that; clean cutting at up to 30% faster speeds*. Helping you get there is MacDon's improved knife drive with more power and new knife section geometry with 25% more cutting surface. A smooth close shave comes from two unique ClearCut Knife Guards; choose between Pointed Knife Guards or PlugFree™ Knife Guards that resist plugging even in the nastiest conditions.
High Volume Heads-First Feeding.
The FD2's all-new frame features an ultra-deep deck with 50 inch deep drapers and is now available in 30 to 50 foot configurations. The FD2 delivers up to 20%* more capacity of smooth heads-first feeding in the tallest bushiest crops it can get its reel fingers on. No matter what type of combine you mount it to, the FeedMax™ Crop Feeding System optimizes performance. Along with active crop flow, patented reel movement, and new ShatterGuard reel positioning, the FD2 is ready for action+.
