Continental's Swather Canvas utilizes side folds and a center strip for extra strength and increased wear resistance where contact is made with the header structure.
The S & Z Weave insures the best tracking with the least amount of effort and maintenance. The S & Z fabric is used by high speed sorting equipment, so incorporating this into Swather canvas makes sense due to the traditional tracking problems of Swather canvas.
All Continental Swather Canvas utilizes three different additives to insure superior oxidation and ozone resistance where most manufacturers use only wax.
Patented oil resistant rubber compounds help our canvas stand up against the oil residue left behind by harvesting oily crops such as canola. It also helps the canvas hold up to the grease and oils from the Swather and /or the tractor.
Continental was the first manufacturer to put additional rubber on the top of the canvas to help prolong it's life. This is especially important in crops with large stems such as canola.
