    Plastic fingers:

    • Standard from the factory on all 1400D Series Platforms
    • Recommended for all crop conditions
    • Lighter weight and easy to replace

    Steel fingers:

    • Only available through Parts
    • Recommended for heavy forage crop
    • Longer life


    Optional end fingers improve feeding aggressiveness in difficult feeding and cutting conditions with down and tangled crop.

    All 10.7-m (35-ft), 12.2-m (40-ft), and 13.7-m (45-ft) platforms come standard with tine tube stiffener kits to handle heavy crop conditions and improve the life of the platform.

    • 6-m (35-ft), 12.2-m (40-ft), and 13.7-m (45-ft) sizes
    • Better feeding in heavy, wet, or down crop
    • Better control of the reel height for more consistent feeding
    Five-bat reel Five-bat reel
    Six-bat reel Six-bat reel
    Nine-bat reel Nine-bat reel

    The reel is available in five-, six- or nine-bat configurations:

    • Six- to nine-bat conversion is available with field installation
      • Recommended for heavy conditions such as silage or grass seed crops
  • Gauge wheels provide ground following for uniform cut
    Dual gauge wheel option Dual gauge wheel option

    1400D Series Draper Platforms offer optional dual gauge wheels with spring suspension:

    • 1-cm (15-in.)
    • Excellent ground following and flotation in all conditions
    • Fine adjust the float on the go from the cab for high-speed harvesting and stable flotation
    • Available as part of the integrated slow-speed transport system option
  • Hydraulic deck shift gives larger windrows for more efficient harvesting

    John Deere 1425D, 1430D, and 1435D Drapers can windrow out of the center, right, or left ends of the draper with the press of a button using the hydraulic shift option.

    Hydraulic deck shift option:

    • Larger windrows to match combine or self-propelled forage harvester
    • Match narrower-width drapers with higher-capacity harvesting
    • Place higher-density windrows in front of harvesters when yields are low
    • Discharge two windrows side by side for uniform combine or forage harvester feeding
    • Move chain stop to change center belt opening quickly and easily for different crop types and density (see operator’s manual for more information)
    • Discharge crop to the outside of the headland to prevent running over the windrow while cutting the rest of the field
    • Platform stays balanced with automatic fine-float adjustment when using deck shift
    • Optional double draper drive bundle is recommended when using deck shift and harvesting silage or wet, heavy crops
      • NOTE: The double draper drive option is not compatible with the 1425D Platform.

    Optional left- and right-end swath deflector rods form a space between the windrow and uncut crop to have adequate clearance for the crop divider on the next pass.

  • Transport easily with integrated transport system

    Slow-speed transport system:

    • 1400D Drapers are towable only with the W170 Self-Propelled Windrower
    • Transport is recommended behind a tractor with seven-pin electrical lighting outlet
    • 1430D, 1435D, 1440D, and 1445D Drapers only
    • Convert draper from field to transport in minutes with one person and without tools
    • Dual front dolly wheel tires and two gauge wheel tires carry the weight of transport


    It is a simple four-step process to switch from field to transport:

    1. Move right gauge wheels from field to transport
    2. Move left gauge wheels from field to transport
    3. Attach the tongue.
    4. Detach from the windrower.
  • Cutterbar and frame profile gives uninterrupted crop flow
    C-shaped cutterbar profile C-shaped cutterbar profile

    The C-shaped cutterbar profile provides:

    • Smooth crop flow
    • Superior draper-to-cutterbar seal
    • Reduced amount of material under belts
    • Minimized crop loss in shatter-prone crops
  • Excellent visibility to cutterbar and belt
    Cutterbar visibility Cutterbar visibility
    Right-side visibility Right-side visibility
    Left-side visibility Left-side visibility

    The cutterbar design provides excellent visibility across the full range of tilt:

    • Cutterbar and belt can be easily seen from the cab even with the optional top-crop conveying auger installed
    • Cutterbar can be tilted from the cab mechanically or hydraulically depending on the windrower option chosen
    • Change cutterbar angle with varying crop and field conditions for best cut height and crop flow
