Honey Bee lives to make harvests faster. With a keen understanding of material flow into a combine, we have engineered a superior straight-cut header built on a design that moves the crop smoothly to the feeder housing. The Grain Belt Header defines harvest efficiency.
With low maintenance features including an oversized oil cooling reservoir and heavy duty 3/16″ (0.48 cm) tubular steel header mainframe, the Grain Belt Header is designed to last. Add in our reputation for well-built, dependable equipment and you’ll have a lot more harvest time on your hands.
The Honey Bee Grain Belt Header improves combine efficiency by eliminating the twisting and tangling problems of conventional auger headers that result in poor combine performance, higher fuel costs and lower grain quality.
Using drapers and a unique feed auger, the Honey Bee Grain Belt Header uniformly feeds the crop heads first into the combine, providing constant harvest speeds, superior threshing and less down time. Depending on the crop, you can increase combine capacity by as much as 20 percent.
The Grain Belt Header not only ensures proper feeding of cereal crops, but also dramatically improves feeding of bulky crops like peas and mustard.
Hydraulic Header Tilt
The hydraulic header tilt adjustment is equipped with a ball and socket on both ends, improving header floatation.
Adjustable Castoring Gauge Wheels
Adjustment to cutting height is now a breeze — simply pull a pin and push a lever. The Grain Belt Header also has an incredible floatation of eight inches.
Draper Speed Control
Draper speeds are hydraulically controlled and adjustable. Independent control over the drapers gives you the power to move heavy material smoothly and efficiently.
The improved crop divider flows seamlessly through the heaviest of crops, reducing crop trampling.
Lateral Leaf Spring Float System
The Grain Belt Header has excellent floatation and ground-hugging capability. Lateral and vertical leaf spring suspension allows the header to float independently of the combine’s OEM accumulator floatation system. You’ll put more crop through the combine, leave less in the field and reduce rock damage to your cutting system.
Draper Tension and Tracking
The canvas can be adjusted for tracking and tightening, which creates even tension on both the front and rear of the rollers. A quick-release lever allows for ease of canvas and roller cleaning.
Deck and Feed Auger
Fasten your seat belt. The 68″ (172.7 cm) centre deck, combined with the 72″ (182.9 cm) feed auger with retractable fingers, smoothly feeds the crop into the feeder housing without twisting or tangling. A hinged door under the centre deck allows easy cleaning of foreign material like rocks and roots that might jam the feeder.
The knife is driven by a 3 5/16″ (8.4 cm) stroke, epicyclic knife drive that ranges from 1,284–1,400 strokes per minute (depending on make of combine), eliminating fore/aft movement. The knife drive is driven by a low-maintenance hydraulic drive motor. Optional double knife drive systems are available.
Dual Wheel Hitch Carrier
Allows for easy towing of your combine header behind a pickup truck or combine. Easily transport your header through gates and down narrow roads. The hitch carrier can be used with the Detachable Storage Transport or Integral Storage Transport.
Hydraulic drive cross augers assist in material flow from the drapers to the feed auger. The auger is adjustable to match varying crop conditions and increases combine capacity in bulky crops like peas and mustard. Augers are size-specific.
