The 600R 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 John Deere 600R Cutting Platforms feature the fully integrated header control system.
This system provides automatic control of:
The automatic-control, programmable header functions provide optimum performance and operator ease and comfort.
600R Front-End Equipment is equipped with two HeaderTrak™ sensors that follow the contour to ensure an even stubble height and minimize the risk of damaging the header in uneven terrain. The HeaderTrak sensors are located on the left and right side of the header.
The 635R header comes with three HeaderTrak sensors. An additional sensor in the center of the front-end equipment supports the outer sensors in uneven terrain to ensure maximum performance.
The 630R header comes with two HeaderTrak sensors in base. An additional third HeaderTrak sensor is optionally available to ensure maximum performance in uneven terrain.
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.
The heavy-duty driveline for the auger and cutterbar on the left-hand side of the cutting platform is designed for the biggest throughput and best efficiency.
The knife drive gearbox is driven by a belt; the intake auger is driven by a strong chain and a slip clutch to protect the auger and driveline in case of crop plugging.
All 600R Series Cutting Platforms feature a large, 660-mm 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.
All augers are 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.
In addition to the conventional auger configuration, it is possible to choose a wear-resistant auger, which is recommended for harvesting rice. Therefore, the auger flights are reinforced to grant maximum wear life.
