The MF1316S RazorEdge pull-type disc mower conditioner is a 16-foot, centre-pivot mower conditioner built for high-throughput and fast serviceability, as the first step to high-quality, consistent bales, says AGCO.
Matt LeCroy, hay and forage product marketing manager at AGCO, says the Hesston by Massey Ferguson MF1316S replaces the MF1395, becoming the largest of the heavy-duty, fully welded-frame 1300 series of RazorEdge pull-type mower conditioners.
New, easy-to-service belt-drive augers at the ends of the header move the crop quickly to the conditioners, LeCroy says, minimizing the chance of double cuts, crop wrapping, and buildup.
The low profile cutterbar decreases hay ash content for higher quality hay, and the quick-change knife system, allows farmers to swap knives one-handed and in less than five minutes per knife.
The MF13116S also has forming shields that allow farmers to choose a wide-range of swath shape, from tall and skinny, to wide and flat.
Farmers should be able to see the new 16′ model at Hesston locations this fall.
