Drumheads for John Deere

Drumheads provide an essential function for any cotton harvester since it’s the drum that is enabling the harvesting of cotton. The component that holds the bars and all the spindles is the drum, and the drumhead serves to enclose that whole unit. The high drum cotton pickers have bars that each hold 20 spindles, making the bar 20 spindles high. These are generally used to harvest taller cotton plants, slightly shorter plants use bars with 18 spindles. The earliest Cotton Harvesters used 14 spindle bars, and were known as ‘low drum’. The low drum harvesters are obsolete and are possibly only found in museums.

Premium Aftermarket Replacement Parts

As you might guess, the drums and drum heads are critical components for any cotton harvester, and if you have a problem with any of them, you probably won’t be harvesting too much cotton any time soon. Some components to check within your drum heads are the rubber seals, bolts, and grease bushings. Each bar uses a U-cup seal and an O-ring seal. These should be checked periodically for wear as the picker bar sleeves oscillate within them when the arm, which is pressed onto the sleeve on top of the bar and locked into place by a key, is directed by the cam track. Drumhead bolts should be checked for tightness as they hold the Drumhead caps, and Pro bar journals in place. Grease bushings are used to direct grease into the bar journals on the Pro Machines. Picker bar sleeves and keys, cam rollers and cam tracks should also be checked for wear when servicing the Drumheads. The cam roller spins on top of the arm as it rides through the cam track making it necessary to check it for wear on the inside and outside of the roller.

Fortunately, Certi-Pik, USA stocks these drumheads, seals, sleeves, keys, bolts, grease bushings, bar journals, cam rollers, and cam tracks, so that you can quickly get a replacement sent to you, just by making a phone call or faxing us your order.
