Attaching and detaching platforms is easy, allowing fast and narrow draper transport and the ability to quickly change from hay to grain harvest. This also allows those with diverse operations to use the machine for more hours annually, spreading out their costs.
Single-point multicoupler 400D
A single-point multicoupler on the right-hand side of the machine stores easily out of the way for hay use and is conveniently connected to the platform usng the multicoupler.
Hydraulic and electric connections on left side of machine
Storage position for hoses and wiring
Hydraulic and electrical connections to 400D
The storage position keeps hydraulic and electric connections away from moving components and secure for transport.
Uniquely sized locking flat-face quick-attach couplers provide easy attachment and make connecting virtually fool proof.
Self-latching hydraulic center link option
Center link vertical alignment
A self-latching center link comes with the optional hydraulic center link, making connecting the platform easy.
The other optional kit for center link vertical alignment makes attaching and detaching a breeze for those who move fields frequently or want the ease of attaching. This kit gives the capability to move the center link up and down with a cylinder under the cab controlled by the reel fore-aft buttons on the multi-function control lever.

Quick-attach 100A Auger Platform
Quick-attach 400D Draper Platform
The pin on lower-lift arms allows easy change over from draper to auger platforms and also changing from wide draper in-field operation to narrow transport.
Springs and float-fine adjust
Springs are easily adjustable. Simply raise the platform to relieve spring pressure and turn the bolt to adjust the leverage on the springs. This allows changing platforms quickly and easily.
The float-fine adjust is in base equipment and available on the W150 only. It uses a small hydraulic cylinder to adjust spring length and force independently on each side. This also allows changing the platform float for varying field conditions on the go and has three memory positions from which to select. The float-fine adjust also allows rebalancing the platform when using the deck-shift feature using the same controls on the armrest.
Storing the 400D with a W150
Storing 400D Platform with a W150 is easy with great visibility and control to push the platform in through narrow doorways for off-season storage.
