Krone's EC-6210CV center-pivot disc mower-conditioner offers narrow endwise transport and switches from working to transport position in the cab. Two cutter bars make for easy cutting and flexibility.
The machine has a 20'6" cutting width and convenient two-point hitch with 90° swivel gearbox. Its EasyCut cutter bar technology includes a one-piece bar for a strong “on-the-ground” base for the gear drive system.
Massey Ferguson 9000 Series self-propelled swathers are designed to handle tough field conditions and heavy crops. A welded, all-steel frame, Cummins engine and powerful hydraulic system offer durability. The 85-hp MF 9220 and 110-hp 9420 also include variable-speed hydrostatic drive systems.
New Holland's newly designed 69- to 85-pto hp TL-A Series utility tractors feature four-cylinder engines, high-capacity hydraulic systems and 5,745-lb three-point lift capacity.
The TL-A Series' larger, heavier front axles offer durability to handle heavy loader work. The tractors come in two- and four-wheel drive, flat decks or all-weather cabs and in standard or deluxe configurations.
The Automatic Stack Saver bale spear from Westendorf Manufacturing, Onawa, IA, comes with a built-in mechanical push-off mechanism that holds the bale stationary as it releases the spear.
Models are available for big square and round bales and make use of the loader's existing hydraulic cylinder that tilts the bucket.
Rotary Disc Mowers
The TM7 and TM8 DiscPro trailed mowers from Vermeer cut 9'2" and 10'6", respectively. The units easily hook up to minimum 55- and 60-drawbar hp tractors and are equipped with rubber torsion suspension systems, hydraulic swing cylinders and double-wide skid shoes.
Reversible knives, plus seven extra-thick cutting discs on the TM7 and eight on the TM8, help reduce wear and minimize downtime.
