A double swath package (hydraulic deck shift) is available as an option for the 525D, 530D, and 536D Draper Platforms.
Double swath is controlled from the cab using hydraulics and two shifting decks. Operators can choose right, left, or center delivery of the windrow.
The double swath package is a valuable asset for producers who want to combine the two windrows into one to match up with the material handling capacity of larger combines and self-propelled forage harvesters (SPFHs).
Additionally, the package gives the ability to discharge crop to the outside on the headland to prevent running over the windrow while cutting the rest of the field.

Third pass with left discharge

When the operator wants to switch back to center delivery, it can be completed with the touch of a button using the controls inside the cab.
