The AUTOCONTROL system corrects the position of the cutting table to follow the contours of the terrain perfectly in all possible harvesting conditions. The AUTOCONTROL system uses three different sensors to maintain consistent cutting height, lateral float and ground pressure: the driver sets these parameters as needed quickly from the cab, and the system automatically does the rest.
Proportional pick-up reel
The pick-up reel is equipped with six bars, each carrying a set of extremely resilient and flexible plastic teeth, which are settable at an adjustable angle and individually replaceable far easier maintenance.
The pick-up reel is mounted on arms sliding on Teflon guides (for quick, precise hydraulic adjustment of tooth inclination), and is also easily adjustable in position horizontally or vertically relative to the cab, to cater ideally for different crops and harvesting conditions.
The pick-up reel may be synchronised with ground speed. Once the driver initially sets the ground and pick-up reel speeds, when the ground speed is subsequently increased or decreased, the pick-up reel speed is automatically adjusted to maintain the same proportion between the parameters.
DEUTZ-FAHR cutting tables have been designed for versatility. Both the sunflower and the rape kits are easily fittable to the original grain bar to further extend the operational period of the combine harvester, for even more profitable returns on your investment.
This first kit consists of special extensions used simultaneously together with a smooth cylinder (installed in front of the feeder auger) and a toothed roller (mounted under the cutting table instead of the pick-up reel, which is removed) to harvest the crop efficiently and quickly.
The kit for rapeseed differs from the sunflower seed kit as it also includes an extension for the table and a vertical cutter blade on the right hand side of the hydraulic transmission (or with a blade on the left hand side, as an option).
