  • Close Reel-to-Cutterbar Relationship

    The FD2 FlexDraper® features a fixed reel-to-cutterbar relationship. A small gap between the reel fingers and the cutterbar is maintained at all times, even at extreme flex, ensuring smooth, consistent, heads-first feeding of the crop over the entire length of the FlexDraper®.

  • Heads-First Active Crop Flow

    Once the crop gets on the drapers, MacDon's Active Crop Flow takes over, swiftly moving the crop heads-first down the side drapers and into the combine's feeder house. Now standard on the FD2, the in-cab side draper speed control allows on-the-go adjustment. Heads-first feeding promotes peak combine efficiency by improving threshing action, creating better straw distribution, and providing an overall more productive fuel-saving harvest. What's more, MacDon's Active Crop Flow is more efficient in damp and moist conditions, meaning you can start earlier and work later into the evening.

  • Amazing Reel Performance

    The unique movement of the FD2 reel picks up and gently places crop onto the drapers. This patented reel features a uniquely shaped cam that allows the fingers to get underneath lodged crop and pick it up before it's cut. Aluminum reel ends and sectors help reduce overall weight and improve efficiency. The FD2 header and reel are highly adjustable from the cab for optimal performance. Header tilt control adjusting the draper and knife angle, and fore-aft reel positioning lets you set the FD2 for the most challenging real-world harvesting conditions.

  • Multi-Crop Harvesting Solution

    The MacDon FD2 FlexDraper® is a multi-crop harvesting machine. Switch the FD2 easily from a flex to a rigid frame header with the simple flip of a lever, giving you the versatility to move from one crop type to another. Cereals, oilseeds, beans, just about any crop in any condition; another reason why the FD2 is the ultimate performance upgrade for your combine.

  • Any Combine

    The FD2 FlexDraper® fits all major brand combines* with a dealer-installed completion package and integrates seamlessly with your combine for the best possible user experience. This multi-brand compatibility and interchangeability means your investment will hold its value when you decide to update.

    *See your MacDon Dealer to find out if the FD2 will fit to your combine.

  • Triple Reel

    New for the FD2 is a triple reel option. Three reel sections now mirror the flexing points of the header, delivering an even closer reel-to-cutterbar relationship for smooth, consistent, heads-first feeding. Triple reels are optional on 40 foot and standard on 45 and 50 foot FD2 models+.    

    +12.2 m (40’), 13.7 m (45’), 15.2 m (50’)

  • Full-Length Upper Cross Auger

    A performance option worth considering for anyone harvesting big bushy, high-volume crops, like canola (rapeseed), peas, and mustard, is the Upper Cross Auger. The auger keeps bushy crops on the draper as they move to the center of the header, where twin pitch flighting actively and aggressively drives the crop down onto the feed auger. This option runs the full length of the header and is available on all sizes of the FD2 FlexDraper®.

  • Super-Sized Capacity

    With today's modern combines, it's all about more capacity, and with the FD2, you get up to 20%* more of it. This serious capacity boost comes from an ultra-deep deck featuring 50 inch deep drapers on all FD2 models. These huge drapers perform with ease, cleanly laying down the biggest bushiest high-volume crops, keeping those big combines running smoothly with consistent heads-first feeding. This deeper draper also provides improved cutterbar visibility from the combine.

    New for the FD2 is a 50 foot header size; paired with the deeper draper deck, the FD250 delivers the most crop capacity ever offered in a FlexDraper® model+.

But these components aren't just for looking good; they help reduce the overall weight of the header, improving efficiency without compromising strength.

  • ContourMaxTM Contour Wheels

    ContourMax Contour Wheels allow the header to follow the field's contours, leaving a consistent stubble height while cutting up to 18 inches off-the-ground. This incredible performance option uses the FD2's Flex-Float Technology® along with the combine's auto header height control to its full advantage, conveniently adjusting in-cab and on-the-go for 1 to 18 inches of off-the-ground, ground following harvesting performance+.

    +2.5 cm (1”), 5.7 cm (18”)

  • Active Float System

    The FD2 gets instant float response with MacDon's Active Float System. Integrated but independent of the combine's auto header height control, this simple mechanical system supports up to 97% of the header's weight, allowing the FD2 to effortlessly float over ground fluctuations. This instant float response lets the FD2 cut extremely close to the ground without pushing dirt, keeping the FD2 flush with the ground delivering a clean, close, even cut every time.

  • FeedMaxTM Crop Feeding System

    Big, small, new, old, the FeedMaxTM Crop Feeding System has an aggressive feeding action and can be custom configured to match any combine's performance.

  • More Flex

    With the FD2, you get up to 70% more flex from the one and only FlexDraper®*. The FD2 is a floating three-section flexible header with double and triple reel configurations; this allows the entire header frame, cutterbar, and reel to follow ground contours as a unit, flexing up to 17 inches+ on either end while maintaining a close reel-to-cutterbar relationship. This unique flexing action allows the FD2 to follow the ground and deliver smooth, consistent, heads-first feeding to the combine, even at extreme flex.

    +43.2 cm (17”)

    *Compared to previous model.

  • ShatterGuard Reel Positioning

    Introducing MacDon’s ShatterGuard Reel Positioning.  Using MacDon's Set-It-Right Multi-Tool, this quick, simple adjustment to the reel comes standard on all FD2 models. ShatterGuard Reel Positioning is designed with tall brittle bushy crops like canola in mind. This adjustment sets the reel further back on the header, preventing shatter on the ground, keeping crop on the drapers where you want it.  

  • A Consistently Close Shave

    On the FD2, MacDon's low-profile cutterbar improves on an already good thing; the knife's distance to the draper is shorter, meaning less chance of seed loss at the cutterbar. In-cab header tilt control adjusts the knife angle to match any harvest condition, and the ultra-smooth ground-facing surface of the cutterbar helps it glide along the ground for a smooth close shave every time.

"The major difference was how the canola went through, the other machines would have some build up at the feeder house, but with the FD2 it was non-stop. "

-Emtman Brothers Farms - USA

"The ContourMax wheels make a huge difference. In fact, we wouldn’t be able to run a 50-foot header on our land without them because it’s too uneven. We were able to maintain a consistent cutting height. Even better, we didn’t even have to get out to adjust them because they are adjustable from the cab. "

-Colin Schulhauser – Cupar, Saskatchewan, Canada

"Normally, in crops like lentils our speed would be 7 to 7.5 kph tops but with the FD2 we were up to 9 to 9.5 kph. And don’t forget we were going from a 40-foot to a 50-foot header, so that speed increase becomes all the more impressive. "
