ELIMINATING THE REEL - AUGER GAP
Anyone who has harvested with a grain or flex header has seen crop hesitate in front of the auger, resulting in slugging, reel carry-over, and slower harvest speeds.
To improve continuous crop flow, HCC took the standard pickup reel design and replaced it with a durable double track system. The Orbit™ Trac II Reel’s unique shape allows the reel tines to break from their conventional circular path and swing directly past the auger. This pushes crop directly into the auger rather than dropping it on the header floor.
The Orbit™ Trac II Reel, now with an all-steel track, reduces or eliminates slugging.

Go with the flow. The Orbit Trac II™ allows you to harvest more crop in less time:
• Positively places crop into auger
• Reduces or eliminates slugging
• Resists wrapping in green crop
• On-farm installation in a few hours
HCC Orbit Trac II Reels have advantages such as 35-40% improved visibility, up to 25% less weight to decrease load on harvesting equipment, and superior bat strength versus sheet metal or aluminum. The HCC Orbit Trac II Reel provides lower cost, more effective crop movement and less down time for combines and swathers. The Orbit Trac II Reel closes the gap between the reel and the auger to provide more control of crop entry into the header.
