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.
