Over 118 Improvements Optimize Your Harvest
Matched draper delivery openings and variable draper speeds provide uniform crop flow into the combine for unbeatable harvest performance. With model options from 25 to 45 ft widths, Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads offer industry-leading ground contour following, superior crop feeding, exceptional durability and simplicity. Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads have incorporated over 118+ improvements since the original launch of the 3100 Series.
Advanced Cutterbar Technology for Maximum Productivity
In 2019, Case IH 3100 Series II model cutterbars feature stainless floors inserts for increased durability, trashbar options for improved performance in green conditions, easy in-field service and installation, and reinforced z-channel for improved cutterbar straightness.
TERRAFLEXTM CUTTERBAR (MODEL 3162)
Harvest More of What You Grow
The advanced ground following capabilities of the Case IH 3162 Series II TerraFlextm draper cutterbar allows you to harvest low podded crops with minimal waste, no matter what the terrain.
The TerraFlextm cutterbar features a flexible range of movement, 3 inches up and 3 inches down for a total of 6 inches differential. Choose the tension to match field conditions, whether muddy and soft or dry and hard. The TerraFlex cutterbar can also be locked into a rigid position for harvesting tall crops. The optional Auto-Header Height Control can be used when in rigid position.
Make Adjustments From the Comfort of the Cab
Optional in-cab cutterbar adjustment allows the operator to fine-tune cutterbar pressure on-the-go to match field conditions. Additionally, cutterbar flotation, featuring air-bag suspension design, can be adjusted from inside the cab.
Exclusive TerraFlextm Torsion Block
The TerraFlextm cutterbar tension is controlled using a simple rubber torsion block that provides consistent response through the full range of cutterbar travel. The torsion arms can be adjusted individually to fine tune cutterbar pressure.
Improve Performance Across the Cutterbar
The CentraCuttmcenter-mounted knife drive improves performance and minimizes cutterbar vibration. The head is driven from the center, eliminating gear boxes on the ends of the header and allowing for much narrower dividers, reducing crop knock down.
Strength and Stability
The CentraCuttm center knife drive features a heavy-duty knife head and offers 2X the cutting force as dual wobble box and 3X the cutting force as a single wobble box. Helical cut gears ensure that the cutter bar never falls out of timing. If the knife drive becomes plugged, it is fully reversible from inside the cab. CentraCuttm has improved dirt evacuation flap and seals.
The CentraCuttm is a hydraulically driven mechanical drive, with adjustable knife speed on the back side of the header. This well-balanced knife drive is driven from the center, eliminating the need for a double knife drive.
Versatile Reel Reduces Crop Loss In Any Field Condition
The cam action reel found on all Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads positively engages then gently lifts the crop over the cutterbar and across the draper belt floor, reducing reel shatter. For different crop conditions the cam timing can easily be changed to provide different reel tine angles. In 2019, reel anti-wrap kits are standard equipment on all Series II draper heads. Additionally, the reel drive motor and reel travel, tine shape and design have all been upgraded.
High Capacity Draper Belts Maximize Yield
The two side belts and two center belts gently convey the crop across the draper floor and into the feeder house so that the heads of the plant are always feeding first. 3100 Series II draper heads use WCCO belts for superior performance. Wide belts match the capacity of the combine. A Seed Saver Channel on the bottom edge of the draper belts allows the grain to be pulled in to the combine instead of being lost. If the draper belt is damaged, it can be serviced rather than replaced.
Gauge wheels stabilize the header during cutting operations. The wheels are fully adjustable and spring loaded. 2019 improvements include: better visibility to gauge wheel lubrication interval; added life point on the gauge wheel assembly; and improved gauge wheel pivot pins
Variable Flotation for Changing Conditions
Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads are equipped with a new air-bag suspension system in the center section of the cutterbar to provide increased floatation across varying field and harvest conditions. Floatation can be adjusted from within the cab with improved flotation linkage geometry.
Providing Engineered Excellence From the Inside Out
The 3152/3162 series draper heads uses a simple, but very heavy duty drive system. The feed auger utilizes a PTO shaft drive. When the header is engaged after being reversed the side drapers are delayed on engagement to prevent slugging the combine feeder house
Long Lasting Durable Frame
The Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads have been designed from the ground up starting with the frame. All 3152/3162 frames are designed with fully welded construction to ensure strength and durability in the field. The frame has also been designed for simplicity. The 3152/3162 requires very little set-up and is simple to make adjustments as needed. Recent improvements include improved profile to z-channel connection, diagonal frame bracing and reinforced top beam. Narrow end dividers (6” width) reduce crop knockdown and increase grain savings.
Efficiently Travel From One Field to the Next
The low speed transport system is available as an option for the 3100 Series II draper heads The transport wheels can be hydraulically deployed in less than 20 seconds from the comfort of the cab using the propulsion handle. This industry-exclusive feature eliminates the need for a header cart, saves time and provides a convenience that no other draper head offers.
