Large, wide-front glass and cab positioned forward and above the platform give excellent visibility to the cutterbar and incoming crop across the widest platforms. This allows ease of operation and maximum productivity even in the toughest cutting conditions.
Halogen lighting is used to give the operator excellent visibility when operating at nighttime or in low-visibility conditions.
An optional HID lighting package (two mirror-mounted HID lights) is available to provide additional lighting. Optional warning beacon lights are available, providing additional visibility during transport.
Four-point independent suspension delivers a smoother, more comfortable ride. The W155 has four coil-spring shock absorbers working in conjunction with fore-aft and side-to-side stabilizers to minimize cab roll. The shocks are placed at each corner of the cab so the entire cab can go up or down from the resting position. This suspension makes the W155 one of the most comfortable cabs in the industry.
An optional reverser is available on the W155 only. It is easily activated from the operator's station to clear the platform of plugs that may occur.
On the 400D Platforms, the reverser slowly reverses the knife drive and optional hay conditioner if equipped to clear plugs. The reverser is highly recommended when using the optional hay conditioner with the 400D Draper Platform.
On the 100A Auger Platform the reverser slowly reverses the conditioning rolls, auger, and reel. This makes a difficult job easier, so the operator can be more productive.
Operators can run the machines nearer to their maximum capacity and it will take less time to unplug, adding to the machine productivity.
The reverser consists of a valve block and valves shown in photo above. It is the gold-colored valve block to the right of the photo. It is shown plumbed for a 100A Auger Platform.
W155 Self-Propelled Windrowers feature an AutoTrac Controller, delivering improved line acquisition and online accuracy to increase performance and lower cost of operation. The fully integrated AutoTrac Controller uses hydraulics to steer the machine, providing more precise control than the AutoTrac Universal solution.
Can be ordered from factory
The W155 comes from the factory GreenStar™ system ready. Select the AutoTrac kit option when ordering the machine to make the W155 AutoTrac ready. The AutoTrac kit includes a hydraulic steering kit, AutoTrac Controller, and universal GPS receiver mounting kit. An optional GreenStar 3 (GS3) 2630 Display kit and StarFire™ 3000 Receiver can also be ordered from factory.
AutoTrac kit (dealer installed) includes:
NOTE: Estimated dealer install time for the AutoTrac kit is approximately 8 hours. Installation includes mounting and connecting the hydraulic and steering linkage components, installing the AutoTrac controller, and installing the universal receiver mounting kit.
When ordered from the factory, the hydraulic kit will be shipped with the machine. The AutoTrac Controller kit and receiver mounting kit (and GS3 2630 and SF3000 Receiver if ordered) will ship from a secondary location separate from the machine.
Display (cornerpost mount)
GS3 2630 Display includes:
Compatibility and availability
AutoTrac Controller on W150 and W155 Self-Propelled Windrowers is compatible with the GreenStar 2630 Display and 1800. If not purchased from the factory at time of machine order, refer to the AMS Sales Manual and Price Page for ordering information.
Transport wide draper platforms with ease and control using the ballast box and 400D with an integrated transport system.
The optional ballast box enables the power unit to safely transport without a platform.
It also enables narrow transport when used with a 400D Platform with the integrated slow-speed transport system. The ballast box shifts weight onto the drive tires for traction and control when in transport. It also has a hitch for attaching and towing the 400D Platform. It is required to have the electrical wiring harness and hitch pin kit to provide a seven pin connector on the ballast box for lighting. This provides the W155 and 400D Platform with visibility for safe transport.
Attaching and detaching platforms is easy, allowing fast and narrow draper transport and the ability to quickly change from hay to grain harvest. This allows those with diverse operations to use the machine for more hours annually, spreading out their costs.
A single-point multicoupler on the right-hand side of the machine stores easily out of the way for hay use and is conveniently connected to the platform using the multicoupler.
The storage position keeps hydraulic and electric connections away from moving components and secure for transport.
Uniquely sized locking flat-face quick-attach couplers provide easy attachment and make connecting virtually fool proof.
A self-latching center-link comes with the optional hydraulic center-link, making connecting the platform easy.
The other optional kit for center-link vertical alignment makes attaching and detaching a breeze for those who move fields frequently or want the ease of attaching. This kit gives the capability to move the center-link up and down with a cylinder under the cab controlled by the reel fore-aft buttons on the multi-function control lever.
The pin on lower-lift arms allows easy change over from draper to auger platforms and also changing from wide draper in-field operation to narrow transport.
Springs are easily adjustable. Simply raise the platform to relieve spring pressure and turn the bolt to adjust the leverage on the springs. This allows changing platforms quickly and easily.
The float-fine adjust is in base equipment for the W155. It uses a small hydraulic cylinder to adjust spring length and force independently on each side. This also allows changing the platform float for varying field conditions on the go and has three memory positions from which to select. The float-fine adjust also allows rebalancing the platform when using the deck-shift feature by using the same controls on the armrest.
Storing 400D Platform with a W155 is easy with great visibility and control to push the platform in through narrow doorways for off-season storage.
