M1 Series Windrower

Release Date: August 2017

Introducing MacDon’s new M1 Series Windrower and Cutting Platforms

August 2017, for immediate North American release.

Next Level Windrower Performance

M1 Series Windrowers continue MacDon’s tradition of bringing harvesting innovation to the field. These all-new Windrowers deliver power, performance, comfort, and speed. Powerful Cummins engines deliver increased header drive capacity on three interchangeable cutting platforms to power through the toughest harvesting conditions. Cut at speeds up to 18 mph as the all-new patented CrossFlexTM Suspension absorbs impact from rough terrain allowing a smooth, clean cut. Two stage controls and One-Touch-Return buttons give operators precise control and customization of header functions. Setting a new standard in Windrower technology, the M1 Series is the next level of harvesting performance.

Standard Features Include:

•    M1240 Engine; Cummins QSB-6.7L 6 Cylinder Tier 4 Final Turbo Diesel 248 HP (185 kW) @ 2200 RPM boosts to 262 HP (195 kW) @ 2000 RPM

•    M1170 Engine; Cummins QSB-4.5L 4 Cylinder Tier 4 Final Turbo Diesel 173 HP (129 kW) @ 2400 RPM

•    High speed Dual Direction® provides field speeds of up to 18 MPH (29 km/h) and transport speeds of up to 28 MPH (45 km/h).

•    Patented CrossFlexTM Suspension System design absorbs impact from rough terrain for an even cut.

•    New dual radiator design draws air from the cleanest location, behind the cab. A hydraulic-drive reversing fan works on the go to blow out unwanted debris, keeping the engine and hydraulics running cool and efficiently, without the need of operator input.

•    For ease of use, all hydraulic connections happen on the operator’s side of the machine and through two multi couplers for draper-ready machines.

•    Industry leading crop clearance featuring a height of 46” (117 cm) and a 12” (30 cm) wider walking beam allowing big bushy swaths to flow freely under the frame.

•    Improved header clearance with 3 inches more lift height over the previous model.

•    Harvest Performance Tracker on a 7” LCD display let operators track harvest performance with an easy to read interface that provides on board diagnostic readings and user customizing features.

•    Two-stage controls allow for precise positioning of the header.

•    One-Touch-Return buttons provide fast, customizable in-field header control.

•    Standard Cab features include; Ultra Glide® cab suspension, high-back multi-adjustable air ride seat, fold away trainer seat, auto climate control, Bluetooth radio, windshield wipers with washer fluid, front and rear window shades, warning beacons, and a tilting and telescoping steering column.

•    In-Cab noise levels are reduced helping to decrease operator fatigue

•    Easy serviceability with longer service intervals

Optional Packages Include: (But are not limited to)

•    Deluxe cab option features heated and vented leather seating, power mirrors, and 360˚ Night Vision from 8 high-power LED work lights.

•    Double Windrow Attachment allows operators to combine up to three passes into a single windrow. Using the DWA translates into significant time and fuel savings in the field.

•    MacDon’s all-new patented Swath Compressor creates a smooth, even slope that gently compresses and forms loose bushy swaths into perfect windrows.

Each M1 Series Windrower model can be equipped with three interchangeable cutting platforms. Three new headers are available for use with the M1 Windrowers. Introducing the all-new R1 Series for the M1170 and the D1XL and D1X for use with both M1 Series Windrowers.
