Nice flat ground to demo it on. OK I went back and watched the whole thing and that is pretty sweet, hardly slowed for the draw at all. Between the auto height and the flex, looks like it was pretty clean job.

Now if they would just use autosteer and grain carts down in Brazil so they would be cutting 39+ feet all the time and not have to drive back to the truck to unload they would really get something done!! Dennis SEND

Looks like they need a frost to kill the weeds.

I think I'll stick with MacDon. Consistent reel-to-cutterbar relationship, flexible frame, and floating adapter. That JD is just a flexheader with a draper belt in place of the auger.

What's consistent about,it? The fact that the hinge draper flexed in two places and the reel only flexed in one? I'll take a head that actually flexes.

Whats the deal with not having one belt on it? In the first video you can see a short section of belt on the left hand side and in the back a hydraulic motor that drives that one section of belt.

JD advertises a 6" flex range on their hydraflex headers. That means that the cutterbar can potentially be 6" away from the reel.

Due to the floating-adapter design of the Macdon, the whole head follows the ground contour very well, and the wings rarely have to actually flex very much, in my experience.

Just my 2 cents :)

Short belt allows better tracking do too a actual flex suspension on the deere draper,unlike macdon that pivots in two places,really like macdon for wheat!!!but in soybeans for get it,a standard jd flexhead will out cut one any day,now if you don't have rolling ground the macdon will do just fine.The new deere head is a awesome machine,finally a head that will match the seperator of a 9770sts or 9870sts.

I don't know about that deerefever, we are anything but flat and the FD-70 works great. Like most things it is all about how the flex draper is set up, if you can't read the manual and understand how to set the head up it won't work right. Some guys just shouldn't own flex drapers!

I know die-hard deere guys who love there Macdon and say they flex better than what they replaced.....after 8 years of running two side by side and seeing how they flex I can say they do a great job...

Well I give up???never really bashed the macdon drapers,however???didn't really say I loved the 635f,matter of fact I've rebuilt many 06 and older 635's that have failed miserably in multiple places.Jaydee my hats off!!!!excellent video's,I will stick to what i've seen in our area,there are no deere machines running macdon,our customers are waiting for the new deere drapers so they can have matched capacity and slower ground speeds than a 635f,6.5 mph in 70 bushels beans is no way too run a flexhead regardless????but too make a 9860sts 0r 9870sts full in soybeans that is what happens. Now the new draper will allow hydraflex floating and cutting at a larger overall header. The fd70 is alot better header than the old macdon drapers,this i will give you???but ??if i had too put up with the job they are doing on competive machines [gleaner,caseih,new holland]it wouldn't be a hard decision to do something different!!!!!!!!!!but i guess i would be happy with any macdon draper compared too any case,gleaner,or new holland flexhead what a joke.

MacDon is a hinged head. It has no TRUE "flexing" capability to it. Deere, although 10 years LATE, has made the right head.

Well if the heads so d@mn perfect why's it been delayed for an extra two years..... Im pretty sure its called flexing. Yes hinged but it flex's and contours to the ground very well... I guess to me its a flex head!!
