"Reverser" Kit For Pull-Type Haybines
The kit consists of a reversing valve that installs between the hydraulic pump and motor, mounting bracket, hoses and wiring harness.
“When you hold down a switch the header automatically slows down, stops, and reverses direction to clear the plug. Releasing the switch causes the header to slow down, stop, and return to the forward direction,” says Sueltz.
The kit sells for $1,500 plus S&H and takes about 90 min. to install. A kit for MacDon haybines will soon be available.
Sueltz also came up with a “wide swath” kit for the same New Holland haybines that lets you lay the swath out up to 13 ft. wide for faster, more even drying.
“It reduces hay drying time by 1 to 2 days and also improves the hay’s feed value,” says Sueltz. “With a 16-ft. haybine you’re normally laying out a swath that’s 4 to 6 ft. wide. But when you expand the swath to 13 ft. wide, you spread the hay out much thinner so it dries faster, which results in better quality.”
The kit consists of a new swath board and six 15-in. long, 1/8-in. thick steel fins that bolt onto the swathboard, just above the conditioner rolls. The fins mount at an angle to deflect hay toward the side and can be easily adjusted to vary the swath width.
The wide swath kit sells for $960 plus S&H.
Wide swath kits are also available for New Holland discbines and sell for $150 plus S&H.
