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.
