The Draper Movement

In the past two decades, agricultural equipment and technology have made leaps and bounds. Threshing capacity has jumped, hoppers have gotten bigger, horsepower has been surging upward, and farmers yearn to go faster and wider with their harvest headers.

The new combine demands started pushing traditional auger headers out of the running due to width restrictions, although, the other pitfalls of augers headers didn’t help their cause (inflexible, increased crop damage and crop loss). And so it became draper header’s time to shine.

Farmers began starting earlier and stopping later with the latest hightech agricultural equipment. However, draper belt performance across the market was not measuring up to the increasingly high demands...

UNTIL NOW.

Q-Power® Draper Belting

The patented fabric technology within Q-Power®  Draper Belts is an advancement that keeps pace with today’s farmer and modern equipment.

Tinsile Strength Graph

Tensile Strength

Q-Power® Draper Belts are made with filament fabric, can withstand 29.5% more stress from stretching and pulling than the competition.

Tear Strength

Tear Strength

Q-Power® Draper Belts are 18.1% higher in tear strength than its leading competitor.

Puncture Resistance

Q-Power® Drapers are 81% more durable in puncture resistance than its competitor.

Fabric

The backbone of any belt lies in its fabric construction, which is why Q-Power® Draper Belts are manufactured with a patented fabric technology for high belt performance.

Raptor Close Up

Filament vs. Spun

Q-Power® Draper Belts are designed with 100% polyester filament yarns and tests well above the closest competitor product made from spun fabric:

  • 81.7% Advantage in Puncture Resistance
  • 29.5% Advantage in Tensile Strength
  • 18.1% Advantage in Tear Strength
Spun and Fiiliment Fabrics

Filament fibers are long, continuous man-made strands whereas spun fibers are composed of short length wool or cotton fibers.

Spun and Filiment Yarns

Fibers are twisted together to form the yarns, which in turn are woven together to create the fabric. The continuous, uniform filament yarns are significantly stronger than their spun counterpart, which is a weaker fabric due to the short, non-uniform length of its spun fibers.

Rubber

The fabric construction of Q-Power® Draper Belts is a technological advancement in how it allows Q-Power® customers to utilize the benefits of both rubber skim coating and friction coating.

Friction & Skim

Friction Side

Friction coating is the process of pressing raw rubber into the fabric, not adding to the fabric’s original thickness, for reinforcement. By using friction coating on the underside of a Q-Power® draper, the belt weighs less and drags less, thereby reducing horsepower requirements.

Skim Side

Skim coating is when raw rubber is applied as a layer on top of the fabric, adding to the fabric’s original thickness, for fabric protection. Utilizing a skim coat on the topside of a Q-Power® draper increases belt durability and offers protection from the environment.

Teardrop Cleat Design

Teardrop Design

Q-Power® Draper Belts feature a teardrop shaped fiberglass reinforcement rod inside of the cleat for increased belt stiffness, making our drapers significantly stronger than the competition in its cross direction. The belt may also include the original equipment manufacturer-specified v-guide on its underside to improve proper tracking regardless of harvesting conditions.

Q-Power® Endless Draper Belting

The patented fabric technology within Q-Power® Draper Belts is an advancement that keeps pace with today’s farmer and modern equipment. Q-Power® is now combining the benefits of its draper belt with an endless draper belt design.

Tinsile Strength Graph

Tensile Strength

Q-Power® Drapers can withstand 44% more stress from stretching and pulling than OEM endless drapers.

Tear Strength

Puncture Resistance

Q-Power® Draper Belts are 22% more durable in puncture resistance than OEM endless drapers.

Compare And See The Difference

Current OEM endless draper belts are manufactured by adding rubber to the topside and attempting to press the rubber through to the belt’s underside which results in inconsistent bleed-through (pictured below). Inconsistent bleed-through leads to exposed fabric, leaving the belt unprotected and making it extremely susceptible to wear (abrasion). This inconsistent layer of rubber on the under side can signifcantly decrease the life of the belt.

Pictured below is the underside of the Q-Power® draper belt. The Q-Power® draper belt uses a friction coat of rubber on the underside which offers fabric reinforcment and superior protection.
