ALL NEW FROM 2021: John Deere 6/7 series draper fronts

  • “She’s loving the big canola. Not even a stutter at the feeder”
  • “Pretty exciting how much it is pumping through. Like it should be from the start. Massive stuff”
  • “Actually driving machine to engine capacity now for first time in canola”
  • “In heavy barley it just loads the header up good, no fluffing and no noise”
  • “All good, works like a dream, cheers!”
  • “Before we were driving on the edge of the seat with the feeder slip clutch constantly going off in big lupins. We’re actually loading the engine up now, and the slip clutch hasn’t gone off once!”
  • “Our old turbodrum was matching our Vario tin front in canola at 11 k’s on wheeltracks. Now with our updated Typhoons, I honestly think our drapers are just a better all round front”
  • “Loving the timing system in the new Typhoon – good job!”
  • “In she went and away it went. Awesome so far. In some 7 ft canola, smashing it in!”

Superseding the original i-paddockIndustries Turbodrum, i-paddock’s all new i-paddock TyphoonTM  fixes the frustration of slow harvest speeds in bulky crops like canola and pulses, and the blockages and breakdowns caused by old technology feed drums in draper fronts.

With a new manufacturer and a raft of significant updates, the next generation i-paddock TyphoonTM  aggressively grabs crop and pulls it through in a constant, steady flow: day after day, year after year .

i-paddock: Built, tried and tested in the real world, by real farmers

The dollars and sense of fitting an i-paddock Typhoon in your front

With modern combine hire rates at $400 – $500 per hour, the Typhoon pays for itself over and again when your machine is harvesting faster and without the breakdowns.  Every farmer knows, there’s no money in leaving crop standing when it’s ready to go. 

We take all year growing our crops; don’t throw it away by putting up with poor feeding, blockages, breakages, bent and broken crankshafts, broken end plates, and busted drive chains this harvest.  

It’s been proven that every day lost at harvest accounts for a massive 1% loss in value. (SEPWA, 2007). Even one day lost with breakdowns or bad feeding in a 5000t program can cost you 25t in lost yield – more than the cost of an i-paddock TyphoonTM.

You can fit a new i-paddock TyphoonTM and TwisterTM in around two hours with the supplied instructions. You will probably gain that time back within the first day of direct cutting troublesome crops like canola and beans.

You might regret it – if you don’t fit a TyphoonTM and TwisterTM this harvest.

Practical advantages with an i-paddock Typhoon in your paddock:

The i-paddock TyphoonTM is yet another a step up in harvesting with draper fronts, but there are many incremental changes in the i-paddock TyphoonTM developed from our own real in-paddock experience which make harvest more productive, and less stressful. 

  • Eliminate swathing, and all the extra costs and risks that go with it
  • i-paddock’s unique patented paddle flights minimise repeating issues in light crops by eliminating the usual “dead zone” under the drum
  • Fast and simple adjustable finger timing through 150°, so you can easily adjust it for any conditions
  • Jam packed with retractable fingers with an aggressive pattern and a longer stroke. Typhoon grabs crop and pulls it through the massive crop window in a constant and steady flow
  • Full width between the outer flights uses the whole feeder house, meaning more even wear and less grumbling all the way from the feeder chains right through the rest of the combine and out the chopper
  • Feeder chains and drum bars now wear evenly across the full width. No more chain sag in the middle
  • Eliminating blockages means less reversing and less wear on the slip clutch
  • Harvest later at night without the risk of plugging from slug feeding
  • Easy installation with clear instructions provided
  • i-paddock support: we don’t just make the product, we use the product and know how to make it work
