Hesston Triple Window Attachment

Hesston by Massey Ferguson, the industry-leading hay equipment brand from AGCO Corporation, introduced an all-new triple windrow attachment (TWA) for WR9800 self-propelled windrowers during Husker Harvest Days 2016. Designed specifically to enhance forage harvesting efficiency, the TWA allows operators to place freshly cut forage in the windrow configuration best suited to the capacity and capability of the operator’s forage harvester or baler. This capability eliminates raking or merging windrows together, reducing trips through the field, lowering fuel and equipment costs and reducing labor needs.

“The new triple windrow attachment is designed to match the preferences and needs of most producers and commercial forage harvesters,” says Shaun Allred, tactical marketing manager for hay and forage products at AGCO. “Whether windrowing heavy first-cutting alfalfa, light grass hay or thick, heavy forage crops, the TWA attachment installed on a WR9800 Series windrower will produce uniform and consistent single, double or triple windrows.

Hesston 2200 Series Square Baler

Hesston by Massey Ferguson introduced the 2200 Series large square baler at the 2013 Farm Progress show in Decatur, Ill. According to Hesston, new features engineered into the 2200 Series help custom harvesters and producers bale a wider variety of crops, particularly crop residue, under a broad range of conditions.

“With increasing crop yields, the need to bale excess residue like straw and corn stalks is really driving demand for balers such as the 2200 Series. Baling is a management solution that gets excess residue off the field to help ensure top yields the following year,” says Dean Morrell, product marketing manager for hay and forage. “The growing biomass fuels industry also requires a durable, reliable machine with the capability to handle a wide range of crops, often in less-than-perfect conditions. The 2200 Series has this type of capacity.”
