Platform reverser controls on W155
An optional reverser is available for the W155 Self-Propelled Windrower only. It is easily activated from the operator's station to clear the platform of plugs that may occur.
On the 400D Draper Platforms, the reverser slowly reverses the knife drive and optional hay conditioner if equipped to clear plugs. The reverser is highly recommended when using the optional hay conditioner with the 400D Platform.
On the 100A Auger Platform, the reverser slowly reverses the conditioning rolls, auger, and reel. This makes a difficult job easier, so the operator can be more productive.
Operators can run the machines nearer to their maximum capacity and it will take less time to unplug, adding to the machine's productivity.
