Harvest More of What You Grow
The advanced ground following capabilities of the Case IH 3162 Series II TerraFlextm draper cutterbar allows you to harvest low podded crops with minimal waste, no matter what the terrain.
The TerraFlextm cutterbar features a flexible range of movement, 3 inches up and 3 inches down for a total of 6 inches differential. Choose the tension to match field conditions, whether muddy and soft or dry and hard. The TerraFlex cutterbar can also be locked into a rigid position for harvesting tall crops. The optional Auto-Header Height Control can be used when in rigid position.
Make Adjustments From the Comfort of the Cab
Optional in-cab cutterbar adjustment allows the operator to fine-tune cutterbar pressure on-the-go to match field conditions. Additionally, cutterbar flotation, featuring air-bag suspension design, can be adjusted from inside the cab.
Exclusive TerraFlextm Torsion Block
The TerraFlextm cutterbar tension is controlled using a simple rubber torsion block that provides consistent response through the full range of cutterbar travel. The torsion arms can be adjusted individually to fine tune cutterbar pressure.
Improve Performance Across the Cutterbar
The CentraCuttmcenter-mounted knife drive improves performance and minimizes cutterbar vibration. The head is driven from the center, eliminating gear boxes on the ends of the header and allowing for much narrower dividers, reducing crop knock down.
Strength and Stability
The CentraCuttm center knife drive features a heavy-duty knife head and offers 2X the cutting force as dual wobble box and 3X the cutting force as a single wobble box. Helical cut gears ensure that the cutter bar never falls out of timing. If the knife drive becomes plugged, it is fully reversible from inside the cab. CentraCuttm has improved dirt evacuation flap and seals .
The CentraCuttm is a hydraulically driven mechanical drive, with adjustable knife speed on the back side of the header. This well-balanced knife drive is driven from the center, eliminating the need for a double knife drive.
Versatile Reel Reduces Crop Loss In Any Field Condition
The cam action reel found on all Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads positively engages then gently lifts the crop over the cutterbar and across the draper belt floor, reducing reel shatter. For different crop conditions the cam timing can easily be changed to provide different reel tine angles. In 2019, reel anti-wrap kits are standard equipment on all Series II draper heads. Additionally, the reel drive motor and reel travel, tine shape and design have all been upgraded.
High Capacity Draper Belts Maximize Yield
The two side belts and two center belts gently convey the crop across the draper floor and into the feeder house so that the heads of the plant are always feeding first. 3100 Series II draper heads use WCCO belts for superior performance. Wide belts match the capacity of the combine. A Seed Saver Channel on the bottom edge of the draper belts allows the grain to be pulled in to the combine instead of being lost. If the draper belt is damaged, it can be serviced rather than replaced.
