The full length of the draper belt and tunnel is accessible through two full-depth hinged canopy doors.
This exclusive design from Loftness enhances the high-speed free flow of material from the knife head to the draper.
When configured with the transport option, conversion is quick and painless. The option includes lights and SMV sign. Not available on 15-foot models.
1 3/8-inch or 1 3/4-inch 1,000 RPM power takeoff, includes CV knuckle and overrunning clutch on all models.
The Loftness Windrower Draper is available with pull-type hitch only.
A standard feature on all Loftness shredder equipment, this field-proven and extremely reliable gearbox is rated at 280 HP. The Draper is equipped with a 1,450 RPM gearbox.
Windrow shredders are equipped with
4-1/2-inch-wide hard-surface, cupped knives. The Draper's unique rotor knife pattern is designed to produce increased suction and enhance chop efficiency. Greater suction means you can operate just a bit higher, reducing the risk of striking hidden objects. The Draper is the perfect preparation tool for baling corn stover and other residue types.
Efficient transfer of power via a four-groove banded belt and spring-loaded push-type idler system. The main rotor spins at 1,450 RPM.
The windrow discharge opening is 30 inches wide. Side discharge allows you to double the size of the windrow by tightly placing two windrows next to each other in one round. This greatly increases the efficiency of your followup baling operation.
Shredded material passes over the surface of the curved hood at high speed. As it meets the flow deflectors it is redirected to the center of the draper.
Designed to move massive amounts of shredded crop material to the side diffuser, the draper resists clogging and jamming. Continuous power is provided by a hydraulic motor. Full top access to the draper is afforded through two large doors.
The grate-like diffuser deflects and directs the final chopped residue toward the ground.
The rear wheels are fully adjustable to match row spacing.
Configuration for the Draper Windrower is based on either a 20-foot four-wheel, or 15-foot three-wheel setup using 11L-15 tires. Two re-phasing type hydraulic cylinders provide precise height adjustment for fine tuning performance and chop.
