Feeds better, built tougher: iPaddock’s new TyphoonTM feed drum

Farmers know the frustration of slow harvest speeds in bulky crops like canola, and even worse, the blockages and breakdowns often caused by the standard feed drum in draper fronts.

With a new manufacturer and a raft of important structural and operational updates, the TyphoonTM  aggressively grabs crop and pulls it through in a constant, steady flow: day after day, year after year .

  • Aggressive flighting design
  • iPaddock’s patented paddle flights keep the centre clean
  • Fully adjustable Quick-set finger timing to suit all conditions
  • 150° timing adjustment with just one nut
  • Easy installation with simple instructions

  • Solid steel retractable fingers
  • Field fit retractable finger holders
  • High strength 2 piece retractable finger guides
  • Fully welded plate steel internal structure

New release: iPaddock TwisterTM Chain Tensioner

Introductory offer: One FREE iPaddock TwisterTM with every Typhoon purchased!

The patent pending iPaddock TwisterTM is the latest invention from the iPaddock stable which fixes the problem of the drive chain for the feed drum coming off in Macdon fronts. The cam shaped slot makes precise adjustment of chain tension possible with just hand pressure, while preventing the tensioner from sliding loose in the track when it is tightened up again. Save yourself hours of lost time and operator frustration during your busy harvest.

No drilling, welding or cutting required; Twister is installed in just minutes. The iPaddock TwisterTM is just another game changer, proudly brought to you by iPaddock.

Available now in the iPaddock online store, and for a limited time you will get a FREE Twister with every iPaddock Typhoon purchased.

$149 including GST, freight free Australia wide.

(Suits all CA20 and CA25 fronts, even with the original feed drum and older model Turbodrums).

You will regret it later if you don’t fit a Twister!

iPaddock: Built, tried and tested in the real world, by real farmers

A few messages from early adopters:

  • “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 early model 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!”

The business case for fitting an iPaddock Typhoon to 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. 

You took all year to grow your crop; don’t risk having poor feeding, blockages, breakages, bent and broken crankshafts, broken end plates, and busted drive chains this year.  

In terms of the numbers, 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 iPaddock TyphoonTM.

You can fit a new iPaddock 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 will regret it if you don’t fit a TyphoonTM this harvest.

Benefits from fitting an iPaddock Typhoon:

The iPaddock TyphoonTM marks a step change in harvesting with draper fronts, but there are many incremental changes in the iPaddock TyphoonTM based on actual paddock experience which make harvest less stressful on the machine, and the operator. 

  • Eliminate swathing, and all the extra costs and risks that go with it
  • iPaddock’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
  • iPaddock support: we don’t just make the product, we use the product and know how to make it work
