Behind the Scenes: A Look in Hesston Windrower Engineering

Ever ask yourself, “What were the engineers thinking when they designed this?”  Well growing up on a farm I asked myself that question a lot. To help better answer, we interviewed our WR Series Windrowers engineering design team to see exactly what they were thinking in the development of an entirely new design of windrower. Find out what new technologies they were able to incorporate into the machine and what makes the new WR Series the most advanced windrower on the market. What do you think?

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.

 

Designed By the Sharpest Minds In the Hay Business: Farmers.

What is it that you would like to see in your next windrower? That is the question we asked commercial hay producers across the country in the developmental process of our new Hesston WR Series Windrowers. We found out that operators didn’t just want a better windrower, they wanted a revolutionary new machine that would change the industry. Check out this video to find out what producers really wanted in a new windrower and catch a glimpse of our WR Series windrower in action.
