Reel resume and reverse are features on the 700D Drapers. The combine operator can store two different reel positions with one setting for normal conditions and another for down, tangled, short, or leaning crops.

Takes one person a few minutes to convert draper from field to transport without use of tools.

All John Deere 700D Drapers include a double-cut knife which features a hydraulic tilt that is controlled from inside the cab. All 10.6-m (35-ft) and 12.1-m (40-ft) draper cutterbars have knifeback reinforcement straps to strengthen the knifeback.

A draper feeding option is available for model year 2018 that will be offered for the full 700D Rigid Draper lineup. This option code will include larger top crop augers with the necessary hydraulic components and mounting hardware as well as an improved seal kit to keep the grain in the draper and not left on the ground.

The center feed drum is designed for efficient, consistent feeding of the crop into the combine feederhouse. A feature for 700D Draper Platforms is a feed drum retractable auger finger to improve crop feeding at the corners of the feed drum.
