John Deere’s C500 Mower Conditioner provides a cut width of 5 meters, allowing it to harvest more acres per hour.
To move crop from the cutterbar to the conditioner rolls more efficiently, the C500 utilizes the same cross auger design used on John Deere 500R Rotary Windrower platforms. This system delivers improved cut quality and reduced ash content while promoting fast dry down through improved windrow formation.
The Quick Change Knife system improves the uptime of Zero Series MoCos by reducing the time needed to replace worn or damaged knives by more than 50% compared to a standard-bolted knife. Forming vanes are base equipment on the MoCos from 3 to 4 meters wide and increase their ability to spread crop up to 25% wider than a similar machine without the vanes.
Also, available is the C400. Its lighter weight makes it compatible with a wide range of tractors, and its wider conditioning rolls allow improved crop conditioning and windrow formation that promote fast dry down. The C400 also features a repositioned driveline above the main beam of the tongue that improves access for easier serviceability.
All Zero Series MoCos include an extended 5-year cutterbar warranty.
