Frequently Asked Questions
Question
My reel is to slow, how do I increase its speed?
 
Answer

Reel speed should run approximately 15% faster than ground speed.

If the reel speed cannot be increased with the header reel speed control,

  1. The reel relief valve is located on the top of the reel drive motor, undo the lock nut on the reel relief valve; screw the relief valve in fully and then out 3 turns (factory setting)
  2. Check all hydraulic connections are properly engaged and not leaking or restricted.
  3. Check reel drive for proper adjustment and reel is free and easily turned.
