Hit it with The Haymaker! Heavy or Light, Tall or Short, Lodged or Standing crops. The all-new MacDon R2 Rotary Disc Header and M1 Series Windrowers deliver a Knock-Out performance in a wide variety of crops and conditions. Featuring MacDon EvenFlow™ Technology, the R2 delivers the best possible cut, conditioning, and windrow formation, allowing for quick dry down and increased productivity.
One Touch Controls allow for faster and more precise positioning of the header. Operators can easily program One-Touch-Return buttons for fast in field control of the headers height, tilt and disc speed.
Serviceability with the R2 is a breeze with easy access to the belts and quick coupling drivelines to the conditioners.
Each of the R2’s discs feature shear pin protection. These pins are designed to shear if the disc comes into contact with a large rock in the field. Once sheared the disc moves up out of the path of the obstruction preventing any damage to the rest of the cutter bar. The shear pins can be quickly replaced in-field, with minimal downtime. Worry-free harvesting performance is ensured with MacDon’s 3-Year cutterbar warranty.
MacDon’s optional Double Windrow Attachment saves time and money. The DWA combines two or three passes into a single windrow, ideal for keeping today’s large forage harvesters working at capacity.
A Clean Shave
Low-profile forward mounted cutting discs provide a nearly flat header angle, resulting in a close, clean, smooth cut at speeds of up to 16 miles per hour (26 km/h). Worry-free harvesting performance is ensured with MacDon’s 3-Year cutterbar warranty.
The R2 features the industry’s widest conditioning rolls at 129 inches (328 cm). This massive conditioning surface area creates well-conditioned windrows even in the heaviest crop conditions.
Choose from two conditioning options; Steel Inter-Meshing Rolls, ideal for high volume crops that require aggressive feeding, or Polyurethane Rolls that deliver a crimp/crush action to gently condition leaves and delicate stemmed crops.
Uniform windrow formation has never been easier. M1 Series Windrowers feature in-cab controls allowing the operator to adjust the R2’s baffle, controlling windrow formation on-the-go.
Altogether, EvenFlow Technology delivers the best possible cut, conditioning, and windrow formation, allowing for quick dry down and increased productivity.
