Serious Pick-up Capacity In any crop condition
A strengthened auger tube and robust chain drive allow the PW8 to easily handle high capacity loads. Hydraulic motors run both draper decks independently. The drapers are kept on track by MacDon's patented V-guide roller groove tracking system. Together these systems allow the PW8 to process the heaviest swaths with ease.

On-THE-GO Control
The PW8 works with the combine's Automatic Header Height and Lateral Tilt System.

Simple Adjustments
A simple draper tensioning system, easy to see draper tension indicators, and common all metric hardware allow adjustments to be made in a flash.

DROP-AND-GO Float Performance
Our simple and effective spring-over-shock floatation system provides a ground following 18" (45.7 cm) of wheel float, and requires no adjustment during operation or lockout during transport. Float indicator numbers are clearly visible on both sides of the machine, letting you know the PW8 is operating at an optimum float position.

Brand compatibility
Switch combine brands with MacDon PW8 completion packages. These packages make it easy to switch between combine brands, which increases resale value down the road.

Tight draper connectors and seals, along with a deep overlap of front and rear draper decks ensure that more seed is making its way into the combine for better yields.

Five 100-hour grease points make for quick and easy maintenance of this machine.
