SMOOTH, RELIABLE CUTTING
Haybine® mower-conditioners lead the pack in cutting through heavy, down and tangled crops. That smooth, reliable cutting starts with over-serrated, bolt-on knife sections, adjustable sickle hold-down clips and square back-bar guards. And Haybine sickle drive systems are designed to provide clean cutting, less wear and vibration, with minimum maintenance.
DUAL, COUNTER-STROKING SICKLES ON 499
Dual, counter-stroking sickles deliver smooth, clean cutting on the Model 499. They’re gear driven from both sides, operate with less vibration and are easy to service. A 1700-strokes-per-minute sickle speed plus a full 3-inch stroke combine for fast, high-capacity cutting.
ADJUSTABLE CUTTING ANGLE AND HEIGHT
Easily adjust knife and guard angle on the 499 to suit crop and field conditions. Hydraulic cutting angle adjustment is optional, allowing changes on the go, right from the tractor seat, which is ideal for working in rocky fields. Adjustable header skid shoes allow for easy changes in cutting height.
THE 499 ROLAREEL HEADER
At first glance, the header on the 12-foot 499 model looks like it’s missing something—there’s no auger. But the exclusive Rolareel header uses a converging reel to sweep the crop directly into the 110-inch conditioning rolls. Since the rolls are mounted in the main frame, the header is light enough to react quickly to changing ground contours for a closer, cleaner cut.
