Double-cut knife system produces a cleaner cut

All John Deere 600D Drapers include a double-cut knife which features a hydraulic tilt that is controlled from inside the cab. All 10.6-m (35-ft) and 12.1-m (40-ft) draper cutterbars also have knifeback reinforcement straps to strengthen the knifeback.


Customer Value:

  • Longer stroke of knife section provides a faster, cleaner, and smoother cut which allows operators to harvest at faster ground speeds maximizing productivity
  • Reinforced knifeback strengthens cutterbar for tough harvesting conditions maximizing performance
  • Hardened sickle sections and unique boron treatment extends wear life
  • Hydraulic tilt optimizes the cutterbar angle for varying conditions, extending the harvest day and providing the lowest-possible cut height

Theory of Operation:

The 100-mm (4-in.) cutting action produces a cleaner cut versus the tearing effect of shorter-stroke cutting systems. Knife hold-downs are easily adjusted to help maintain harvesting performance.

The cutterbar hydraulic tilt adjusts a full 8 degrees while maintaining excellent visibility to the cutterbar throughout the tilt range. For improved ease of use the optional advanced hydro handle can be configured to control the platform tilt.

Dual-knife drive system is timed

The unique dual-knife-drive system is timed, creating the smoothest-possible reciprocating knife-drive system currently in the industry. The positive, reliable shaft-driven dual epicyclical in-line knife drives with built-in driveline protection provide operators with the strongest knife-drive system.

Quickly transport 625 Draper from field to field

Transport system Transport system

Although an integrated transport is not available for the 625D Draper, there is still a solution to move the 625D from field to field quickly. This solution is the HT12 Header Transport from Frontier™ products.


Key features of this equipment are as follows:

  • Rear axle brakes 
  • Rear torsion flex axle 
  • Adjustable sliding brackets 

Reel resume and reverse are features on the 600D Drapers

Reel resume and reverse are features on the 600D Drapers. The combine operator can store two different reel positions with one setting for normal conditions and another for down, tangled, short, leaning crops. 


Customer Value:

  • Added time savings and convenience with saved reel positions, lowering operator fatigue
  • Reel-reverse feature reverses the reel in conjunction with the center feed drum and belt to back out plugs and increase harvest efficiency
