In areas where direct harvesting is not possible the LEXION once again shows its versatility. The SWATHMASTER pick-up header enables growers who windrow their crops the ability to harvest when the crop has dried down and is ready. This is an extraordinary benefit for these small grain growers.
Similar to the SWATHMASTER, this header is distinguished by its cam track controlled pick-up conveyor. The controlled tines are mounted on six bars and retract downward when the crop is fed onto the belt. The feed belts run in the direction of travel and pass the crop to the intake auger with a two-part compressing rake maintaining an efficient crop flow. The speed of the intake unit can be adjusted continuously with hydraulic control from the cab.
The Rake-Up system provides gentler handling, which is ideal when harvesting in edible bean operations.
