Explore Features

  • Advanced Cutterbar Technology for Maximum Productivity

    Case IH 3100 Series II model cutterbars feature stainless floors inserts for increased durability, trash bar options for improved performance in green conditions, easy in-field service and installation, and reinforced z-channel for improved cutterbar straightness. With two types of cutterbars, the TerraFlex™ Cutterbar is available on the 3162 model while the Durable Rigid Cutterbar is available on the 3152 model.

  • Improve Performance Across the Cutterbar

    The CentraCut™ center-mounted knife drive improves performance and minimizes cutterbar vibration. The head is driven from the center, eliminating gear boxes on the ends of the header and allowing for narrower dividers, reducing crop knock down.

    • Strength and Stability: The CentraCut™ center knife drive features a heavy-duty knife head and offers 2X the cutting force as dual wobble box and 3X the cutting force as a single wobble box. Helical cut gears ensure that the cutter bar never falls out of timing. If the knife drive becomes plugged, it is fully reversible from inside the cab. CentraCut also has improved dirt evacuation flaps and seals
    • Adjustability: The CentraCut™ is a hydraulically driven mechanical drive, with adjustable knife speed on the back side of the header. This well-balanced knife drive is driven from the center, eliminating the need for a double knife drive.
  • Versatile Reel Reduces Crop Loss In Any Field Condition

    The cam action reel found on all Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads positively engages then gently lifts the crop over the cutterbar and across the draper belt floor, reducing reel shatter. For different crop conditions the cam timing can easily be changed to provide different reel tine angles. In 2019, reel anti-wrap kits are standard equipment on all Series II draper heads. Additionally, the reel drive motor and reel travel, tine shape and design have all been upgraded.
  • High Capacity Draper Belts Maximize Yield

    The two side belts and two center belts gently convey the crop across the draper floor and into the feeder house so that the heads of the plant are always feeding first. 3100 Series II draper heads use WCCO belts for superior performance. Wide belts match the capacity of the combine. A Seed Saver Channel on the bottom edge of the draper belts allows the grain to be pulled into the combine instead of being lost. If the draper belt is damaged, it can be serviced rather than replaced.
  • Even Cutting with Adjustable Gauge Wheels

    Gauge wheels stabilize the header during cutting operations. The wheels are fully adjustable and spring loaded. 2019 improvements include: better visibility to gauge wheel lubrication interval; added life point on the gauge wheel assembly; and improved gauge wheel pivot pins.
  • Variable Flotation for Changing Conditions

    Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads are equipped with a new air-bag suspension system in the center section of the cutterbar to provide increased floatation across varying field and harvest conditions. Floatation can be adjusted from within the cab with improved flotation linkage geometry.
  • Providing Engineered Excellence From the Inside Out

    The 3152/3162 series draper heads uses a simple, but very heavy duty drive system. The feed auger utilizes a PTO shaft drive. When the header is engaged after being reversed the side drapers are delayed on engagement to prevent slugging the combine feeder house.
  • Long Lasting Durable Frame

    The Case IH 3100 Series II draper heads have been designed from the ground up starting with the frame. All 3152/3162 frames are designed with fully welded construction to ensure strength and durability in the field. The frame has also been designed for simplicity. The 3152/3162 requires very little set-up and is simple to make adjustments as needed. Recent improvements include improved profile to z-channel connection, diagonal frame bracing and reinforced top beam. Narrow end dividers (6” width) reduce crop knockdown and increase grain savings.
  • Efficiently Travel From One Field to the Next

    The low speed transport system is available as an option for the 3100 Series II draper heads The transport wheels can be hydraulically deployed in less than 20 seconds from the comfort of the cab using the propulsion handle. This industry-exclusive feature eliminates the need for a header cart, saves time and provides a convenience that no other draper head offers.
  • Produced at the Case IH Combine Header Center of Excellence

    To ensure the highest levels of quality and reliability Case IH has made significant investments into header design and manufacturing. Case IH 3100 Series II draper headers are produced at the Case IH Combine Header Center of Excellence in Burlington, Iowa. The Burlington Assembly plant has a long history with harvesting products and originally began building Case combines in 1937. Today, the Burlington plant has gone through extensive renovations and has been completely retooled to incorporate the latest manufacturing technology and processes.
