The cornerpost display is divided into an upper and lower region. The upper region provides traction unit information and the lower region provides platform-specific information.

Control engine oil and temperatures with efficient cooling packages
Radiator screen assembly Radiator screen assembly

The W200 Series Self-Propelled Windrowers feature several improvements over previous designs to keep the engine operating at optimal levels and improve engine life. Design features include:

  • Increased screen area of 19 percent provides more air flow through the cooling package than previous models.
  • Smooth, rounded path inside the wand and ducts keeps debris from slowing and plugging.
  • Air lab engineered and field-tested ducting is sized for air velocity and continual removal of debris.
  • Wand backer plate helps stop debris from being sucked against the screen from the cooling fan for better cleaning performance.
  • Cool air intake draws air from above the chassis, minimizing debris intake to cooling package.
  • A stamped metal rear screen provides easier cleaning.
  • The air conditioner condenser and oil cooler assembly swing out for easy serviceability and cleaning.
Oil cooler and air conditioner assembly Oil cooler and air conditioner assembly

The W200 Series Windrowers are tested in tough conditions of over 37.8° C (100° F) to ensure that the drives stay properly cooled for maximum life and reliability. The 94.6-L (25-gal.) oil reservoir supplies oil to the pumps. Oil is cooled as it passes through the combination oil cooler and air conditioner condenser assembly at the rear of the machine.

 

Live monitoring of the hydraulic oil temperature at the left and right drive motors and reservoir limit switch protects against overheating during drive motor stall or high-grade terrain conditions

Variable-speed fan drive Variable-speed fan drive

The eight-blade cooling fan incorporates a viscous drive system that provides precise control over fan speed during operation. Optimization of the viscous fan speed leads to significant reductions in parasitic losses in certain operating conditions.

 

The fan speed is controlled by various factors such as engine coolant temperature, intake manifold air temperature, or hydraulic oil temperature. This level of control allows the fan to operate only at the required speed to keep the engine and cooling package at optimal operating temperature and reduces engine noise levels.

Easily fuel the windrower from the ground
Fuel and diesel exhaust fluid tanks Fuel and diesel exhaust fluid tanks

The diesel fuel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) fill locations on the W200 Series Self-Propelled Windrowers provide convenient filling from the ground level.

DEF sight gauge DEF sight gauge

The DEF sight gauge keeps operators from overfilling the tank, preventing spills and damage from freezing and expansion in cold weather.

Remote battery terminal Remote battery terminal

A remote batter terminal, conveniently located on the left-hand platform near the fluid fill, provides power for the 12-V fuel pumps on refueling tanks.

Consistent cutting and windrow formation with constant header speed
Constant header speed Constant header speed

Constant header speed is a feature unique to the W200 Series Self-Propelled Windrowers. It is made possible by a state-of-the-art platform hydraulic pump control system that monitors platform speed and controls the pump to maintain a required speed. Constant header speed translates to a consistent cut quality and uniform windrow formation throughout varying crop conditions and terrain changes.

 

As crop conditions change, causing the header to slow, or if the engine begins to load as terrain changes, the control system diverts more oil flow to the platform drive motor to maintain the header speed set point. This widens the peak power range of the header, delivering optimal power when it is needed most.

 

Other advantages of constant header speed include:

  • Ability to run the header at slower speeds in lighter crops, translating to less overall fuel consumption
  • Ability to run engine speed under rated rpm and maintain the set header speed
  • Improved ramp up and down speeds upon starting and stopping the platform, increasing life of header and platform drivetrain components
Smoother ride and better control with IntelliAxle™ steer assist

The industry-exclusive, rear-wheel steer assist system provides added control to the windrowers, enabling higher cutting and transport speeds.

 

IntelliAxle steer assist also has independent rear suspension, smoothing out the roughest field and road conditions and decreasing operator fatigue during long days in the field.

Independent rear suspension
Independent rear suspension Independent rear suspension

The independent rear suspension contributes to a better quality of ride and less fatigue for the operator. The torsion axle design absorbs the shock experienced in rough terrains, allowing faster cutting speeds.

Rear-wheel steer assist
Rear-wheel steer assist Rear-wheel steer assist

The rear-wheel steer assist system allows easier, more positive handling in the field as well as on the road during transport. Improved from the 450 Series design, the W200 Series features an electrohydraulic, proportionally controlled rear steering system that provides tighter steering and better control at higher speeds.

 

In-field working speeds up to 27.3 km/h (17 mph) and road speeds up to 38.6 km/h (24 mph) are achieved with the help of this improved axle design.

 

Smooth, fluent steering helps the operator to maintain complete control of the windrower during sharp turns and aggressive field conditions. The steering sensitivity is manually tuned by the operator using the CommandCenter™ display to match operator preference and field conditions.

 

The steer assist system provides three modes of steering aid as the machines travel through the speed ranges:

 

  1. Inactive
    • At speeds less than 6.4 km/h (4 mph), the IntelliAxle steer assist system is not active and the front drive wheels solely control the machine steering.
  2. Field range
    • At speeds above 6.4 km/h (4 mph), the IntelliAxle steering system begins to contribute to steering the machine by hydraulically assisting the turning of the rear caster wheels. The operator can set the desired sensitivity for the field range using the CommandCenter display.
  3. Transport range
    • For transport range, the operator can set a different sensitivity independent from field range. If preferred, this gives the operator increased flexibility in tuning the steering system to desired sensitivity for higher transport speeds.
Faster field and transport speeds

Faster field and transport speeds are achieved with the increased controllability and stability provided by the rear-wheel steer assist system and independent rear-wheel suspension. The IntelliAxle system, when coupled with the integrated AutoTrac™ guidance system, delivers unmatched performance and productivity.

Maximize productivity with integrated AutoTrac™ assisted steering system
W235M Windrower with R500 Rotary Platform W235M Windrower with R500 Rotary Platform

The W200 Series Self-Propelled Windrowers exhibit the industry’s first fully integrated AutoTrac steering system without the use of electrohydraulic pumps or universal type add-ons. The steering system features the industry’s only steering design, utilizing multiple steering systems to maximize controllability.

Additionally, this increased accuracy and controllability allows for faster operating speeds. Integrated AutoTrac on the W200 Series can run up to 27.4 km/h (17 mph) if conditions allow.

A unique hydraulic over mechanical design controls coarse adjustments of the drive pumps, and an electrohydraulic proportional rear steering system executes fine adjustments, delivering the most accurate steering system in its class.

W200 Series Self-Propelled Windrowers are AutoTrac ready from the factory and require only a display, AutoTrac activation, and StarFire™ receiver to enable. Click here to learn more about required components for AutoTrac on W200 Windrowers.

AutoTrac ensures more consistency and that more of the platform engages the crop at all times, leading to increased productivity. This adds value to the operation by providing more consistent windrows, longer operating hours, and less fatigue.

Integrated AutoTrac on the W200 Series far outperforms previous windrower options, delivering faster cutting speeds and more acres cut in less time.

Improved cut quality with independent platform float suspension

Uneven cutting surfaces such as irrigation berms and pivot wheel tracks make for challenging cutting. The W200 Series Windrowers feature independent platform float suspension to improve cut quality on non-level surfaces and deliver improved performance.

Improved flotation on non-level surface
Increase cut quality on uneven cutting surfaces Increase cut quality on uneven cutting surfaces

The independent float suspension delivers improved cut quality along irrigation berms and pivot tracks.

 

Adjusting the float suspension independently allows the platform to ride on the raised surface with proper floatation, reducing gouging and dirt buildup on the platform. Less dirt buildup means increased uptime and less dirt in the windrow, delivering higher quality hay and forage.

Quickly adjust rotary header settings with TouchSet™ technology

Adjustment to the rotary header can be made from the cab. You can adjust the formation shields and swath flap on the go.

Windrow width adjustments

To perform windrow width adjustments previously, you had to crawl under the machine to loosen and adjust the forming shields.

Adjust the swath flap from the display Adjust the swath flap from the display
Adjust the forming shield from the display Adjust the forming shield from the display

With TouchSet, the operator can select and adjust the swath flap and forming shield settings easily right from the display.

Preset adjustments
Customize a preset for a field or crop Customize a preset for a field or crop

TouchSet comes with a preset library of different crops to select while cutting. The crop selection automatically adjusts the header for that particular crop.

 

You can also customize your own preset for a particular field and/or cutting. This allows you to quickly adjust the swath flap, forming shields, head tilt, and cutterbar speed.
