RACINE, Wis. - The new Case IH RDX131 rotary disc header is designed to enhance productivity of hay growers who face difficult drying conditions. Compatible with Case IH WDX1902 and WDX2302 windrowers, the 13-foot-wide RDX131 also is ideal for maneuvering in small or irregularly shaped fields.
"Relative humidity is often high during haying months in the Great Lakes states and Northeast, making drying difficult," says Steve Smith, Case IH marketing manager for hay and forage.
"The smaller cut width of the RDX131 lays less material into the windrower swath. That speeds drying because it exposes a thinner crop matte to the sunlight and heat of the day. Faster drying produces a higher quality hay crop," Smith adds.
Trouble-free transport is another advantage of the RDX131. "The 13-foot header is easy to move over the road, from field to field, through narrow gates and across narrow bridges," Smith says.
The RDX131 was designed and built with the same tough, field-tested components as other Case IH rotary disc headers: the RDX181 with its 18-foot cutting width and the RDX161, with a cutting width of 15 feet, 5 inches. "The new RDX131 is built with the same, proven, modular cutterbed," Smith continues. "The operator can count on the same ease-of-maintenance that larger Case IH headers are known for."
According to Smith, "The new RDX131 is another example of the Case IH commitment to provide choices that deliver more productivity and flexibility for our customers."
