Due to the placement and arrangement of the knives, the movement is smoother and the bar is more stable
As the idea is to produce quality equipment that can compete and be chosen by users of machines from the best brands in the market, the cutter bar chosen for the project was the EasyCut system from the renowned Schumacher brand. The Schumacher system, although simple, is quite precise, with the blades being placed alternately, one up and one down, as well as the rollers, equipped with bearings, which are also positioned alternately, with the backrest now for up, sometimes down, helping to stabilize the bar. This product, used by several manufacturers worldwide, has been proven to provide a lower cut as well as requiring less effort to move and therefore reducing energy consumption, vibration and noise.
The angle of attack is adjusted hydraulically from the driver’s seat and the available positions make it possible for the bar to float up to 200mm to adapt to the irregularities of the terrain by the command of skidders, made of technil, placed on the underside of the platform.
Another differential of the flexer platforms are the springflex spring system that work together with the sensors, providing an excellent copy of the ground. Spring tension can be adjusted as needed.
Rubber concentrator mats transport the product smoothly
As is standard on draper platforms, there is a center belt and two sides, driven by the adjustable gearbox. It is possible to mechanically vary the linear speed of the tracks through the transmission box placed on the side of the platform. There are three speeds, with a variation of approximately 15% between the low, medium and high positions. For the protection of the power system, the project includes a clutch, which triggers when the belt tension reaches a predetermined limit, protecting it against breakages. The central auger is conventional, with pick-up fingers and is positioned behind the central belt.
On the front of the mats there is a sealing system that inhibits the accumulation of straw and earth on the mats, which reduces the need for daily maintenance.
The reel is divided into 3 sections
The GTS platform features a hexagonal shaped windlass, divided into three sections and constructed of high-strength special steel. The position of the assembly can also be adjusted in height and feed in relation to the cutter bar and in rotation, which must be proportional to the machine’s feed speed. The central reel must be positioned backwards to help guide the product to the machine throat, while the two sides a little forward help to bring the mass of straw and grain to the side conveyors.
At the ends of the reel vertices there is a comb called flip over, with the possibility of adjusting the reel pick-up fingers in seven positions. The more advanced positions, that is, forward, feed the product better and place it more easily on the mat, but when exaggerated, they roll up the mass of straw and the stems of the harvested plants more easily. In the rearmost positions the apprehension decreases and reduces the feeding capacity.
SpringFlex® flotation system
Allows the perfect copying of the soil even in extreme situations of harvest with high humidity.
