Frontier Equipment has introduced the HM Series hay mergers. Multiple windrows can be combined into one with a 9' standard model or a 9' or 12' Hydro-Swing, side-pull model. All are designed to stand up to rigorous field conditions. Left or right merging can be easily switched with quick-disconnect hoses. All three mergers are equipped with heavy-duty, 42" wide-ribbed cross conveyors.
The XL 200 unloader for Harvestores, replacing Goliath and Alliance unloaders, easily fits existing structures, according to Engineered Storage Products Co., DeKalb, IL. The unloader's 25-hp variable-speed direct drive gives the cutter chain a running force of 4,900 lbs compared to the Alliance's 1,800 lbs.

John Deere's 600 and 800 Series rotary mower-conditioners, designed with new features to improve windrow formation and simplify adjustment and serviceability, come with an industry-exclusive three-year cutterbar warranty. The cutterbar on all models has a shear hub design to protect its internal gears and to allow for easier, faster and less-expensive repairs.
A new swathboard has been added to improve windrow formation. The side-pull and mid-pivot machines come in cutting widths ranging from 8'2" to 11'6".
Electric Tub Grinder
The H-1100 Tilt Series II Tub Grinder is powered by an electric motor and features a tub that tilts up to 65° to open up access to the hammermill and drive components. That eases maintenance, according to its manufacturer, Haybuster, Jamestown, ND. Its Big Bite hammermill, with a diameter of 26" and a length of 50", grinds hay; ear, shelled and high-moisture corn; sorghum; all feed-quality grains; corn stover; straw; switchgrass and more.
