Making sure you have the right platforms in order for your combine to work as efficiently as possible this season is critical. The John Deere 740FD HydraFlex™ Draper provides the innovation, tools, and performance so that operators can get more done and maximize productivity. First off, the 740FD and all of the 700FD series draper platforms feature industry-exclusive HydraFlex™ technology. This hydraulic float system allows for superior ground following capabilities over a wide range of crops and conditions. This hydraulically controls the float of the cutterbar by simply turning a knob. The effects of this system are better ground following, increased support to the cutterbar and belts for heightened machine performance, and increased productivity.

Functionally, this draper platform has a 40-foot operating width, allowing for fewer passes and less time in the field. All 700FD draper platforms are made with John Deere quality, ensuring that they last for years to come, and provide dependable performance year-in and year-out for a better standard of performance in your operation.

Versatility And Performance

The 740FD HydraFlex™ Draper Platform provides additional support to operators through their incredible versatility. The belt speed, side belt speed, and integrated belt protections can be controlled from the cab, as well as the hydraulic ground pressure of the cutterbar. Additionally, the feed drum on the 740FD HydraFlex™ is able to accommodate dual positions, which allows for a greater throughput on bushy crops for increased performance.

The 740FD also has the strongest knife-drive system in the industry in the dual-knife drive system that comes standard on all 700FD HydraFlex™ models. This knife drive is perfect for providing the draper platform with the versatility to harvest rice, tough crop, and wet or green crop conditions. Finally, a top-crop conveying auger keeps bushy crops moving into the feeder hose, increasing productivity and minimizing downtime.
