EFFECTIVE FROM THE VERY START: The effectiveness of 740CF heads starts at the very front with crop dividers that present the most down and tangled crop to the six-bat reel, which smoothly conveys crop to the cutterbar and auger. When combined with 1150 cuts per minute and the cab-based, hydraulic, fore-and-aft reel adjustment, precise feeding and processing are a given. You can even maintain a pre-set ratio between reel speed and ground speed, so that when ground speed changes, feeding remains consistent.
SMOOTH FEEDING: A 26-inch-diameter auger with deep, five-inch flighting handles heavy crop and feeds it smoothly into the combine. A five-degree flatter auger floor angle enhances crop flow. Adjusting the auger up, down, fore and aft has been simplified. And, a new, patented rubber retention system prevents broken auger fingers from entering the combine.
EASY FLOTATION ADJUSTMENT: You can manually adjust the rubber torsion springs on each floor support to adjust the flotation or to compensate for any unevenness in the cutterbar. Hydraulic cutterbar flotation adjustment is available as a dealer-installed accessory to allow you to make adjustments right from the combine cab.
BUILT-IN DURABILITY: Rugged frame construction and heavy-duty features like the high-speed knife drive, the extended reach of the reel tines and hydraulic reel drive help assure reliable cutting, ample torque and feeding capacity in heavy crops.
CLOSE CUTTING: The cutterbar floor profile includes an integral hump that stops rocks from entering the cutterbar, while also preventing beans from rolling off the front. A shorter skid shoe design reduces weight and allows the cutterbar to cut closer to the ground for even better cutterbar flexing. The header height control system makes use of either four-sensor or two-sensor combine systems. The cutterbar uses standard three-inch guards and overserrated knife sections with 10 teeth per inch for clean cutting.
EFFORTLESS, ON-THE-GO KNIFE ADJUSTMENT: You can adjust knife position a full 23 inches fore and aft so you can regulate the flow of crop right from the cab for ideal feeding. With the varying distance between knife and intake auger, the header reel plays a more important role in crop guidance and crop feeding. You can also adjust the reel electro-hydraulically in all directions from the cab for smooth, continuous feeding. If you direct-cut canola, Varifeed heads are ideal since the 23 inches of floor travel allow ample room for the bushy canola crop. The header floor remains closed in all knife positions, without the need for filler plates or drive belt changes.
ADAPT TO ALL TYPES OF CROP: For optimum harvest quality and a uniform cut in different crop heights, including tall, bushy, direct-cut canola, the Varifeed™ grain head is your perfect partner. The 30, 35, and 41 Ft. models allow you to harvest at high field speeds to make full use of the high capacity of New Holland combines
LARGE-DIAMETER AUGER: The 26-inch-diameter auger with deep flights provides fast, smooth feeding even in the heaviest crops. Full-width retracting fingers between each auger flight move crop down and under the auger.
FLEXIBILITY FOR PRECISE HARVESTING EFFICIENCY: If you harvest in undulating terrain, the 740CF direct-cut SuperFlex™ auger head is the natural choice. Available in cutting widths of 25, 30, and 35 feet, 740CF heads feature a patented, rubber spring flotation system that allows heads to follow ground contours more closely so you get every bit of your crop. The SuperFlex knife bed flexes a full 4.5 inches to ensure a close cut and uniform stubble height in uneven fields.
FULLY INTEGRATED SIDE KNIVES: Optional 18-teeth vertical side knives are ideal to direct cut canola or other bushy crops. They slice through matted crops and are controlled through the IntelliView™ IV color touch-screen monitor. When not required, they can be stored on the header itself.
