AWS Airbar® FDX

Incorporating the the same high-efficiency, dual-channel airflow system as the Airbar® FD, the FDX model also incorporates the high-output X-model fan & chassis system for the ultimate in air-assist harvesting performance.

The FDX adds up to 50% more air pressure over the standard Airbar. The FDX provides highly efficient power for the most demanding operations and combine header sizes.

Available for both draper and auger headers.

Up to
More air flow


  • Airbar® FDX incorporates all of the same features as Airbar® & Airbar® FD models.
  • X-model fan & chassis, with dual-channel Flow Dynamics system, producing up to 50% more airflow than standard Airbar.

The Airbar® FDX model features our largest and most advanced drive assembly and fan. X-model airflow provides up to an additional 50% of air pressure for the ultimate performance in air-assist harvesting.

Primary benefits

In harvesting Soy and Pulse crops, traditional headers incur shatter loss at the knife when loose and low-lying pods are impact-shelled and fall back into the field or are otherwise lost or damaged. This results in profit loss and reductions in sample quality. Knives are often cluttered with debris, reducing cutting efficiency and creating unnecessary wear, breakage and downtime.

When added to a combine header, the AWS Airbar reduces or eliminates this loss of product and efficiency. The high-velocity air stream that is applied to the knife through the out-front manifold, thrusts these pods and materials across the cutting head and into the feeder-house increasing yields by as much as 4 bushels per acre on average.

Improved feeding

The high-speed airflow keeps the cutting head clear and operating at maximum efficiency reducing equipment wear.

Reduced shatter loss

Air pressure keeps all loose product flowing into the feeder-house preventing these losses and increasing yields by as much as 4 bushels per acre.

Faster ground speed

Improving crop flow across the header, allows for substantial increases in ground speed.

Increased operating efficiency

The S3 AWS Airbar creates a more even flow of material through the feeder-house by eliminating waste-material build up, increasing cutting and feeding efficiency, reducing knife and internal component wear and operating time.
