JOHN DEERE - W170 Back
JOHN DEERE WINDROWERS, W100 SERIES W170
WEVE GOT THE RIGHT WINDROWER FOR THE JOB
With four traction unit choices between 155 and 260 horsepower, theres a machine that is perfectly matched for any small grain, hay or forage operation.
Both the 155-hp W155 and the new 173-hp* W170 Windrower can be matched with draper heads and auger heads to provide the cutting and windrow performance that you need.
For higher-horsepower cutting needs, look to the W235 or the W260 Windrowers, compatible with both rotary and draper heads. With integrated AutoTrac, a top speed of 21 mph (34 km/h), the IntelliAxle rear steering-assist system and a well-appointed cab, you get all-day comfort even in rough fields.
W100 SERIES WINDROWERS
The 155-hp W155 and 173-hp W170 Windrowers offer you versatile and efficient cutting. With interchangeable draper heads from 15 to 45* feet (4.6 to 13.7 m) and auger heads from 16 to 18 feet (4.3 to 5.5 m), you get a draper machine that can be used in hay applications as well. You can match the speed of reels and belts to your ground speed with the header index. And more than 45 inches (114 cm) of underframe clearance on the W170 keeps you going through tall windrowed crop.
CAB SUSPENSION PROVIDES SMOOTH RIDE FOR MAXIMUM PRODUCTIVITY IN ROUGH FIELDS
A four-point independent suspension delivers a smoother, more comfortable ride. The W170 has four coil-spring shock absorbers working in conjunction with fore-aft and side-to-side stabilizers to minimize cab roll. The shocks are placed at each corner of the cab so the entire cab can go up or down from the resting position. This suspension makes the W170 one of the most comfortable cabs in the industry.
VISIBILITY AND POWERFUL EXTERIOR LIGHTING MAKE HARVEST EASIER DURING DAY AND NIGHT
The large, wide-front glass and cab positioned forward and above the platform give excellent visibility to the cutterbar and incoming crop across the widest platforms. This allows ease of operation and maximum productivity even in the toughest cutting conditions.
LED lighting is used to give the operator excellent visibility when operating at nighttime or in low-visibility conditions.
Four LED and two high-intensity discharge (HID) lights are mounted to the front of the cab to illuminate the cutting area in front of the platform. This gives excellent visibility to the crop and obstacles in the field.
Two rear work lights are mounted on the rear of the machine.
Four adjustable side or rear-facing work lights are mounted on the rear of the cab to illuminate the area to the sides and rear of the machine. This allows operators to see stubble and obstacles in the field. The left-hand side light has a delay egress feature.
When transporting in road range, the flashing hazard lights (and beacon lights, if equipped) come on automatically.
An optional HID lighting package is available with the base cab. Optional warning beacon lights are available, providing additional visibility during transport.
OPTIONAL REVERSER CLEARS PLUGS EFFORTLESSLY FOR HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY DURING TOUGH
An optional reverser is available on the W170. It is easily activated from the operators station to clear the platform of plugs that may occur. On the 1400D Draper Platforms, the reverser slowly reverses the knife drive and optional hay conditioner, if equipped, to clear plugs. The reverser is highly recommended when using the optional hay conditioner with the 1400D Platforms.
QUICK-ATTACH PLATFORMS MAKE TRANSPORT AND STORAGE A BREEZE
Attaching and detaching platforms is easy, allowing fast and narrow draper transport and the ability to quickly change from hay to grain harvest. This allows those with diverse operations to use the machine for more hours annually, spreading out their costs.
NARROW DRAPER TRANSPORT WITH W170
Transport wider draper platforms with ease and control using the ballast box and the 1400D with an integrated transport system.
It also enables narrow transport when used with a 1400D Draper Platform with the integrated slow-speed transport system. The ballast box shifts weight onto the drive tires for traction and control when in transport. It also has a hitch for attaching and towing the 1400D Platform. It is required to have the electrical wiring harness and hitch pin kit to provide a seven-pin connector on the ballast box for lighting. This provides the W170 and 1400D Platform with visibility for safe transport.
INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY WITH AUTOTRAC ASSISTED STEERING SYSTEM GUIDANCE
The W170 comes from the factory GreenStar system ready. Select the AutoTrac kit option when ordering the machine to make the W170 AutoTrac ready. The AutoTrac kit includes a hydraulic steering kit, AutoTrac Controller, and universal global positioning system (GPS) receiver mounting kit. An optional GreenStar 3 2630 Display kit and StarFire 6000 Receiver can also be ordered from the factory.
