790CP Windrow Pickup Heads
Ideal for small grain and specialty crops, such as canola and grass seed, the 12- and 15-foot 790CP windrow pickup heads are designed to gather wider windrows, operate at faster field speeds and reduce seed loss to boost your harvesting productivity.
The flexing pickup frame allows up to 12 inches of flex within the frame to smoothly follow rough terrain. You can adjust the ground force of the mechanical suspension easily using a single wrench. A hydraulic float option allows you to change flotation sensitivity on the fly from the cab for optimum flotation over rough fields.
The 15-foot 790CP windrow pickup uses three five-foot belts and offers two feet more picking width than the previous 14-foot model and 8.5 inches more than the previous 16-foot header. The 12-foot grass seed windrow pickup uses a single 12-foot belt and gathers a 10-inch wider area than the previous 12-foot windrow pickup.
SAVE MORE GRAIN AND SEEDS
Both the 12- and 15-foot models feature standard rear and optional front windguards to ensure even crop flow into the combine. And, both models use fewer belts than competitive models, reducing the risk of seed loss between belts. Taller, square cleats “paddle” the seed to the auger. The picking belt gently and efficiently transfers the crop onto the slatted transfer belt. This positive pickup action ensures continued harvesting productivity, even in rained down or sprouting crops. A seed dam is an integrated part of the design—not a rubber add-on—and is located between the rear transfer belt roller and the floor, preventing losses to collect all the grain you pick.
A 26-inch-diameter floating auger with five-inch flighting handles heavy crop and feeds it smoothly into the combine. Adjusting the auger up and down has been simplified. The auger can be locked or set to allow either 5/8" or 1-1/4" of float to handle slugs. A double drive sprocket allows you to slow or speed up the auger to match your needs. A double V pattern provides clean, even sweeping into feeder and prevents material wrapping and carry over. Auger fingers can be replaced easily by removing spring pin from plastic holder. Tines require no tools for assembly and you can adjust pitch with a single pin and handle.
