MacDon teams with CNH for draper headers
The draper headers are expected to arrive Down Under in time for harvest season 2023


Leading header manufacturer MacDon will develop co-branded combine draper headers for Case IH and New Holland harvesters, available to order Down Under in late 2022.

To be developed for Case IH and New Holland harvesters, the MacDon draper headers will start arriving in Australia in time for the 2023 harvest season, the companies said in an announcement.

MacDon will continue to manufacture and distribute its full line of combine draper headers under the MacDon brand to all its dealers and customers for all major combine brands, and New Holland has confirmed it will continue production of its Varifeed grain headers and CornMaster corn headers.

New Holland Australia’s Product Segment Manager – Broadacre, Marc Smith says the partnership will offer immediate improvements to customers.

"Using New Holland’s technical harvest expertise and customer needs insights as well as MacDon’s ability to craft best-in-class headers with increased flex and speed, we can significantly increase our customers’ on-farm performance and efficiency, and decrease their operational costs," he says.

"This partnership creates a best-case scenario for both brands and our dealers, and most

importantly, takes the harvesting experience and performance for our customers to a new level."

Case IH ANZ general manager Pete McCann says the deal will deliver an industry-leading harvesting package for producers.

"The collaboration is an exciting new chapter in Case IH’s Hay and Harvest product offering, and we believe it gives farmers a high-efficiency draper header-combine solution that will make harvesting easier, and more profitable for local farming businesses," he says.

"Seeking out new partnerships like this one with MacDon will ensure the bar continues to be raised for the benefit of farmers, and consumers both here and across the globe."
