DFO™ Crop Lifter™
Features
Specifications
Videos & Guides

The Flexxifinger® DFO™ Crop Lifter™ is designed for use on auger headers and is used for harvesting a variety of different crops including peas, cereals, oilseed, and other specialty crops. The lifter rail hugs the guard and the replaceable nylon finger is held in an adjustable receptor, allowing the combine operator to fine-tune the location of the lifter's forward lifting point for his specific conditions. The receptor is outfitted with a spring-steel tail which stands the crop up in front of the auger, optimizing crop flow into the machine allowing increased ground speeds.

Benefits

Adjustable

The DFO's™ finger receptor is adjustable – this adjustability changes the angle and the forward lifting point of the nylon finger. This movement allows the user to individually fine-tune the angle and height of each nylon finger resulting in the lifters working in unison.

Gentle on the Crop

The finger length of the Flexxifinger® DFO Crop Lifter minimizes shatter loss by reducing the time it takes for the plant to get off the ground and onto the header, yet still strong enough to lift heavy cereal, oilseed and forage crops.

Gentle on the Combine

The replaceable nylon finger is the weakest point of the lifter by design which minimizes the probability of steel components entering the combine.

Easy to Maintain

A bent or broken nylon finger can be replaced in less than a minute, significantly reducing downtime in the field.

QD™ Compatible

Flexxifinger® uses the same patented QD™ technology on all its lifters, which makes it possible to quickly interchange different lifters on the same header without the need for removing the guard bolt each time.

Custom fit

The DFO™ Crop Lifter™ is offered in two models (N for longer guard lengths and J for shorter guard lengths) which makes it compatible with virtually every guard system on the market.  Please refer to our fitting chart for which size is compatible with your make and model of header and/or guard system.

Usage

Crop type: peas, cereals, oilseed, and other specialty crops

Generally, the recommended spacing is one lifter per foot across the header. Harvesting some row or bedded crops, where lifters mounted to the row or a combination of different Flexxifinger® lifters to maximize recovery have proven beneficial.

The 33064P nylon finger is included with the DFO™ lifter, however this finger is interchangeable with other Flexxifinger® HD nylon fingers.  Please refer to specifications tab for additional product information.

Optional Accessories

33080 Bean Lifting Pan
This pan attaches to the rail of the Flexxfinger's® line of crop lifters and helps to:

  • Pull edible bean pods above the knife
  • Reduce shatter loss in dry field conditions by catching shelled seed that would otherwise be lost

32310 Carriage Bolt
This Carriage bolt is for select headers that have a poly skid plate held on by a 7/16" (11mm) carriage step bolt from under the header, which tapers to 10mm in order to mount the QD™ nut assembly.

32312 Carriage Bolt
This Carriage bolt is for a header that uses a 7/16" (11mm) carriage bolt from under the header, which tapers to 10mm in order to mount the QD™ nut assembly.

32314 Carriage Bolt
This Carriage bolt is used on a header that has a 10mm guard bolt from under the header, in order to mount the QD™ nut assembly.

40090 Off-set Bracket
On headers that have 4"(100mm) spacing between the guards, there will be instances where the guard bolts do not line up with the guard point, making the installation of a lifter at specific intervals impossible. Flexxifinger® has engineered a patented bracket, to position a lifter on a guard tip that does not align with a bolt. This allows users to place Flexxifinger® lifters at intervals other than once every 12" (304mm).
