Crary Air Reel
Truly, the worlds only Air Reel!
Crary is the only company that can offer you a complete reel system, equipped with high velocity air! We've been developing our air systems for more than 20 years, which means at Crary "We definitely know Air flow".
We also know, that the most efficient thrashing comes from an evenly fed harvester. A constant, even flow of material in, leads to the most efficient grain separation. Poor feeding, bunching at the cutter bar and crop simply shattering or falling off the leading edge can literally leave your profit in the field. Add an Air Reel and you will add bushels to the hopper.
A constant stream of high velocity air quickly feeds crop back to either the auger or right onto the draper belt, eliminating bunching. The Crary Air Reel offers a better view of the cutter bar for improved visibility. The Air Reel also features powder coat paint.
Faster Ground Speeds
Most owners and operators of a Crary Air Reel report higher ground speeds due to the fact that they no longer have to wait for bunched crop to clear the platform. With faster ground speeds come higher profits and reduced fuel expenses.
A Variety Of Crops
Types of crop and the condition of the crop are not a concern for Air Reel owners. Many report that they can move between fields while making no adjustments to their header. The benefits of high velocity air are being realized in many different crop harvests: wheat, lentils and beans are just a few.
The Crary high pressure fan utilizes a steel rotor. Natural dust and dirt particles can be coarse and abbrasive, having a steel rotor will increase the longevity of your air system.
"I'm very impressed with this reel...it's the greatest innovation to harvesting standing crops since the self-propelled combine."

"Simply great, we are able to start earlier and go later at night."

Frequently Asked Questions
Both systems provide an equal benefit to saving crop at the cutter bar. However, some customers perfer to remove their factory reel, or order their new header without a factory reel. Doing so can save on the cost of a new head itself. Others perfer to fit up their current header with air by adding the CWS. They do not remove the factory reel with the CWS.
The Air Reel will fit most combine headers from widths of 15 to 40 feet. Many Air Reels are sold on new combine headers due to the deduction in price that the customer can receive when purchasing the header less the factory reel.
Even though the percentage of crop savings is greater in tougher conditions (i.e. short or lodged beans); the Air Reel can save bushels of crop and increase feeding and visibility in all conditions.
The Air Reel can help in virtually all crops that are harvested with a flex or rigid header. Soybeans, edible beans, wheat, lentils, peas and milo are the most common crops harvested with the Air Reel. The Air Reel also makes a flex header perform well in crops that are normally harvested with a rigid head.
A gearbox driven by the header backshaft generates enough air for all sizes of Air Reels. This air is then directed towards the cutterbar at speeds up to 100 mph through specially designed nozzles.
Yes, besides being able to use your header's fore and aft controls, the Air Reel comes standard with two toggle switches, which are mounted in the cab, and control the direction as well as the volume of air.
