Case IH aims for durability with new draper head models

Look for more durability and increased reliability from Case IH’s new 3100 Series II rigid and flex draper headers.

That’s what the Racine, Wisconsin-based manufacturer is telling growers about the continuing evolution of its draper head lineup. Since the 3100 Series was first introduced, Case has made 118 enhancements to the original model, says Ryan Blasiak, the company’s harvesting marketing manager.

At the National Farm Machinery Show at Louisville, Kentucky, Blasiak highlighted the latest modifications in the 3100 Series II that are now available on 30- to 45-foot header models. Updates include the cam action reel, CentraCut knife drive and narrow-end dividers that allow growers to put more grain in the tank. In this video, Blasiak explains that the 3162 Series II TerraFlex headers feature a flexible cutterbar and new airbag suspension in the centre section plus cast flex arms with cutouts prevent material buildup to increase uptime.

“With the Series II updates, we provide superior flotation regardless of harvesting conditions,” says Blasiak. “If it’s necessary to harvest in soft conditions, producers can feel confident their header won’t push in the field.”
