Still the closest shave

The AirFLEX® has evolved into a tougher and more resilient machine, all while maintaining its simple design and providing the closest cut imaginable. With improvements that enhance performance and reliability, the NXT focuses on the future of farming.

Fully flexible cutterbar controlled by air

The independently-suspended cutterbar is light, fast-reacting, and infinitely adjustable.

Reversible mechanical drive

The center drive reduces weight and provides more powerful cutting and feeding action.

Switch from flex to rigid mode

The switch from flex to rigid mode is made from the cab of your combine, at the push of a button.

The draper header you’ve been waiting for

In flex mode, the AirFLEX NXT will shave the ground, picking up more of your peas, lentils or soybeans. In rigid mode, the no-compromise cutterbar will race through taller crops like canola and cereals.

Only cutting in soybeans? There’s an AirFLEX NXT that’s optimized for you.
