Along with MacDon’s patented Dual Direction® steering, you’ll be able to navigate tight roadways with a narrow driving width of only 347 cm (137”), and safely cruise along at speeds of up to 45 km/h (28 mph)*. Turn yourself around and set the machine to field mode, which pushes the machine’s max-width to 440 cm (173”). In just minutes, you’re ready to take advantage of massive crop clearance ability. 

Featuring the Industry's best crop clearance with 115 cm (45") of height and 341 cm (134") of width, big bushy swaths flow effortlessly under M2 Series Windrowers.* Ample header lift height lets you get up and over the tallest bushiest windrows with ease.


As a farmer you deal with risk every day, so a little bit of control goes a long way. MacDon M2 Series Windrowers help widen your harvest window and give you more options to help manage that risk. MacDon has been perfecting the windrower concept for 75 years, so we know that with swathing comes great harvesting benefits: quicker harvest times, fully organic harvesting, a shorter season, an alternative to natural drying or desiccation, and even crop ripening.

The M2170 NT has a 4.5 liter 4 cylinder Stage V Cummins turbo diesel engine with a peak of 173 horsepower (129kW) at 1900 rpm. This engine meets global emission levels while delivering more power, improved efficiency, and easier maintenance. Clean, simple, efficient, and powerful, that's how you get more with MacDon M2 Series Windrowers.


M2 Windrowers provide precision control at your fingertips with the all-new HarvestTouch™ Display. HarvestTouch™ precisely tracks your harvesting performance and provides user-customization features through an intuitive touchscreen interface.

The M2's precision controls feature a two-stage control allowing faster and more precise header positioning. In addition, users can easily program up to three One-Touch-Return buttons for immediate control of the header's height, tilt, knife speed, reel, or draper operations.

Trimble-ready integration means your M2 Windrower connects seamlessly to Trimble's guidance system.


M2 Series Windrowers feature a dual radiator design. The cooling fan behind the cab pulls in clean air and kicks in to reverse independently to blow out debris from the radiator. This constant, fresh airflow keeps the engine and hydraulics running cool all day. 


Featuring the Industry's best crop clearance with 115 cm (45") of height and 341 cm (134") of width, big bushy swaths flow effortlessly under M2 Series Windrowers.* Ample header lift height lets you get up and over the tallest bushiest windrows with ease.

*Measurements may vary depending on tires and tire setup. 


MacDon's patented CrossFlex™ Suspension makes in-field speeds up to 29 km/h (18 mph) possible, but MacDon's innovation doesn't stop there. With our patented Dual Direction® steering, you can switch from field to road mode in seconds and travel at speeds up to 45 km/h (28 mph)*. 

Hooking up and transporting MacDon drapers is quick and easy with MacDon's Easy Move Transport System and allows towing speeds up to 32 km/h (20 mph)*. Spending more time in the field instead of transport is just another way you get more with MacDon. 

*Always follow local traffic laws and regulations.


MacDon's patented CrossFlex™ Suspension makes in-field speeds up to 29 km/h (18 mph) possible, as this innovative design absorbs impact from rough terrain, allowing smooth harvesting no matter the field condition.

MacDon's Smooth innovations don't stop there. The Ultra Glide® cab has a four-corner independent gas shock suspension system featuring stabilization to prevent cab roll.

CrossFlex™ Suspension, Ultra Glide® cab, and an air ride seat in combination mean you'll enjoy a smooth, comfortable, and controlled harvesting experience with the M2, reducing fatigue to keep you cutting all day long.
