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.
