Company’s hay products receive recognition

AGCO Corporation, Duluth, Georgia, received awards for Hesston by Massey Ferguson WR9900 self-propelled windrowers and the Hesston by Massey Ferguson 2370 Ultra high density baler from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.

The WR9900 self-propelled windrowers are designed to meet the needs of hay producers and custom forage harvesters. The series features the 265-horsepower model WR9980, which is built to cut and condition the most difficult crops, including winter forage, miscanthus and biomass crops. Increased machine power gives operators the flexibility to run disc, auger or draper headers on all models. An improved hydraulic system delivers 20 percent more available header power on 16-feet disc headers for higher throughput and performance.

A larger cab provides greater visibility and comfort with 50 percent more air-conditioning power. The WR9900 series machines also offer a more user-friendly operator interface for intuitive monitoring and control. The WR9900 series is the industry’s only windrower to operate all primary functions through a virtual terminal, giving the operator precise control of over the entire windrower.

The 2370 Ultra HD baler was created from the ground up to meet the needs of large commercial hay growers, operations that export hay, businesses harvesting biomass for the North American biofuels and livestock feed industries.

The industry’s first Class 8 large square baler, the 2370 is designed to produce heavy, dense bales from light-weight, dry, slick grass and crop residue that can be hard to bale. The 2370 Ultra HD makes 3- by 4-feet bales with 20 percent greater density than the 2270XD baler.

It also offers the throughput and reliability large operations require when harvest windows are small and tons-harvested-per-day is driving an operation’s profitability.
