Massey Ferguson Across America-9560-Combining Soybeans in Illinois

Deen Sleezer owned his first Massey Ferguson (a 410 Combine) in 1969. After he was introduced to the quick attach system, there was no turning back. Today he is a proud owner and operator of many Massey Ferguson machines. With the help of his sister Judy, the duo is able to tackle challenges on their 4,000 acrcorn and soybean farm in Gibson City, Illinois. Hear about why he loves his Massey Fergusons and why he chooses to farm.

WR Series Windrower Test Drive

Recently I had a chance to demonstrate our new Hesston by Massey Ferguson WR Series windrower to hay & forage growers in the San Joaquin Valley in California. The responses from the demonstrations was so overwhelmingly positive that I had to capture it on video. The one thing I heard loud and clear from everyone was that our new WR Series didn’t just meet their expectations, it exceeded them in many ways.

One thing that I found very interesting about the San Joaquin Valley is that they still use mostly sickle headers to mow hay, instead of rotary disc heads. When I asked why, they said it was because they didn’t believe a rotary disc head could do as good of a job as a sickle head. But when we mowed their fields with our new 9196 TwinMax™ advanced conditioning disc head featuring our RazorBar™ low-profile cutterbar next to their sickle headers, they couldn’t believe the cut quality. To quote one grower “This machine is doing a beautiful job in alfalfa, I don’t think you could ask for a better job”.

But don’t just take my word for it, check out this video of WR Series test drive interviews.
