The Hesston 1800 Series Small Square Balers by Massey Ferguson

A Model To Fit Every Baling Need

Whether you bale a few acres a year for your own herd, or put up thousands of bales annually in a commercial operation, you can always count on the proven performance of an 1800 Series square baler.

From the time hay enters the wide, low-profile pickup until it drops out the back as a finished bale, the crop follows a straight path. There are no right-angle turns, no cross – conveying mechanisms and no high pickup lifts to shake or tear valuable leaves from the stems. Instead, the crop is lifted about half as high as on competitive models and fed straight into a prepacker chamber that actually preforms each flake before sweeping it straight into the bale chamber. There’s nowhere for nutritious leaves to go but into the bale.

The preformed flake concept also ensures consistent bale density and uniform flake size bale after bale. Plus, nutritious leaves are distributed throughout the bale, not concentrated on the side or bottom of the bale. It all adds up to higher-quality bales that are easier to stack and easier to feed.

Features

  • The compact, low-profile design allows the operator to see behind the baler, which is especially important when using a bale thrower or towing a wagon.
  • A constant velocity driveline allows sharp turns without driveline chatter or vibration.
  • Centering augers help increase the capacity of the pickup and evenly distribute crop material to both sides of the packer/stuffer chute for uniform bales.
  • Every 1800 Series model is based on a high-strength steel mainframe, axles, hitch and welded box-beam construction.
  • The raised location of the bale chamber protects the needles from damage. Even in the down position, the needles are still above the axle.
