Our engineers worked hard to make the PW8 as user friendly as possible, from easy installation to time saving innovations, it all adds up to harvesting performance you can count on. Here's why the MacDon PW8 is the smartest no-brainer on the market.
A strengthened auger tube and robust chain drive allow the PW8 to easily handle high capacity loads. Hydraulic motors run both draper decks independently. The drapers are kept on track by MacDon's patented V-guide roller groove tracking system. Together these systems allow the PW8 to process the heaviest swaths with ease.
A simple draper tensioning system, easy to see draper tension indicators, and common all metric hardware allow adjustments to be made in a flash.
Our simple and effective spring-over-shock floatation system provides a ground following 18” (45.7 cm) of wheel float, and requires no adjustment during operation or lockout during transport. Float indicator numbers are clearly visible on both sides of the machine, letting you know the PW8 is operating at an optimum float position.
Switch combine brands with MacDon PW8 completion packages. These packages make it easy to switch between combine brands, which increases resale value down the road.
Tight draper connectors and seals, along with a deep overlap of front and rear draper decks ensure that more seed is making its way into the combine for better yields.
