Honey Bee 4000 Series Header



  • Draper Crop Saver Seal
    The new seal at the bottom end of the draper reduces losses with smaller-seeded crops including canola, flax, hemp and sesame.

  • Low Profile Draper Decks
    The flatter profile decks improve crop transition from cutterbar to feeder house. This makes harvest faster and reduces cutterbar crop loss.

  • Larger Centre Auger Drum and Improved Transition
    Crops feed smoother and faster into the combine, thanks to the increased capacity of the auger drum and 80” center deck opening. Large fluffy crops such as canola feed easily.

  • Redesigned Hydraulics
    The new hydraulic design reduces operating temperatures, resulting in improved performance and reduced hydraulic issues.

  • Mechanical Trap Door
    The Mechanical Trap Door allows you to remove debris that accumulates in front of the centre draper.

  • Adjustable Castoring Gauge Wheels
    The adjustable wheels provide 8″ of vertical float and castor on turns to reduce potential damage.

  • Slanted Back Beam and Deck Design
    These areas were redesigned to improve draper and cutterbar visibility from the cab and improve crop transition from cutterbar to feeder house.

  • Low Profile Cutterbar
    The low cutterbar cuts closer to the ground and reduces dirt pushing.
