The 600PremiumFlow Header is equipped with the Schumacher Easy Cut II cutting system. This features:
The protection slat for the cutterbar protects from injury and keeps safety at the highest levels.
The 600PremiumFlow Series headers provide a fully-integrated header control system. The system is based on the 600R AHC systems, only the sensors are different.
While the 600R Series Headers use small sensor stripes, the 600PremiumFlow Series is based on heavy-duty sensor plates. These are spring loaded and heavy duty and do not float on the stubble as many competitive sensor plates tend to do.
This system provides automatic control of:
The automatic-control, programmable header functions provide optimum performance and operator ease and comfort.
The 618PremiumFlow and 620PremiumFlow have two sensor plates, one per side.
All 600PremiumFlow Series Cutting Platforms feature a large, 660-mm (26-in.) auger tube with deep auger flights to handle large amounts of crop. This design provides a very big area under the auger to aggressively feed large volumes of crop material.
The auger is equipped with retractable auger fingers over the full width of the auger. Auger fingers are designed for quick replacement and mounted with a finger retainer. Auger finger retainers prevent broken fingers from being moved into the combine, minimizing the potential damage caused by rocks and other obstructions.
The heavy-duty driveline is located on the left-hand side for all cutting widths. The knife is belt driven while the conveyor augers and the auger is chain driven.
The auger drive is protected by a slip clutch to protect both auger and drive system from overload in case of crop plugging or stone collection.
A simple, convenient single-lever multicoupler on the left-hand side of the feederhouse allows the operator to connect all hydraulic and electrical header functions, and engages the latch pins in one easy step. The single-lever multicoupler saves time when moving from field to road and vice versa.
