530D
Draper Platform
  • In 30 minutes or less, you can switch from a rotary head to a 500D Draper head, which means you can harvest small grains and hay with one traction unit.
  • Quick-change reel teeth can be removed and replaced with minimal effort and tools. Then it’s back to cutting.
  • Fully integrated controls to the draper means no need for a secondary control box.

Interchangeable with John Deere rotary platforms
500D Draper and interchangeable rotary platform 500D Draper and interchangeable rotary platform

500D Draper has an interchangeable rotary platform:

  • Interchangeable on W235 or W260 traction units in 30 minutes or less
  • Growers can use one traction unit for harvesting both small grains and hay

  • Deliver increased torque
  • Enable greater productivity with minimal belt slippage
  • Increase performance in heavy crop conditions

  • Draper belts on the 500D are driven from the center of the platform
    • Delivers increased belt performance compared to drapers with end-driven belts
Belt drive motors
Motor driving the left-hand belt Motor driving the left-hand belt
Motor driving the right-hand belt Motor driving the right-hand belt

Due to the motors pulling the belt (instead of pushing in an end drive system), there is less slack in the belt. This delivers an increase in belt torque.

 

As a result, producers will experience minimal belt slippage and increased performance in heavy crop conditions due to the center-driven belt system.

Strong, positive-feeding reel handles all crop conditions

The 500D Series includes an improved reel increasing durability in heavy crop conditions.

  • Easy reel tooth replacement is done with a 90-degree turn with a wrench. It will allow the reel tooth to be removed and replaced.
  • Additional teeth can be added at any location along the extruded tooth bar.
John Deere parts and service support provide uptime for a timely harvest

Sales, parts, and service support from your local John Deere dealer offer overnight parts delivery and a well-trained support staff.

Draper hydraulic pump control logic delivers constant header speed

  • The draper hydraulic pump control maintains knife, belt, and reel speeds regardless of engine rpm changes
  • Results in uniform cut quality and windrow formation regardless of the terrain or engine load
  • Reduces crop loss or shatter
Hydraulic deck shift (double swath package)

John Deere 525D, 530D, and 536D Drapers can windrow out of the center, right, or left ends of the draper with the press of a button using the hydraulic shift option (double swath package).

  • Larger windrows to match combine or self-propelled forage harvester
  • Match narrower-width drapers with higher-capacity harvesting
  • Place higher-density windrows in front of harvesters when yields are low
  • Discharge two windrows side by side for uniform combine or forage harvester feeding
