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

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