FEATURES & BENEFITS

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.

THE EVENFLOW™ ADVANTAGE

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 26 km/h (16 mph). The 18° reversible blades provide more lifting action in lodged crop.

EVEN WINDROWS
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.

SERIOUS CONDITIONING
The R2 features the industry’s widest conditioning rolls at 328 cm (129 inches). 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.

DOUBLE WINDROW ATTACHMENT

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.


* Double Windrow Attachment is not compatible with all units.

EASY MAINTENANCE

Serviceability with the R2 is a breeze with easy access to the belts and quick coupling drivelines to the conditioners.

PRECISION CONTROLS

One touch controls allow for faster and moreprecise positioning of the header. Operators can easilyprogram One-Touch-Return buttons for fast in-fieldcontrol of the header’s height, tilt, and disc speed.

CUTTERBAR PROTECTION

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 cutterbar. The shear pins can be quickly replaced in-field, with minimal downtime. MacDon’s 3-year cutterbar warranty ensures worry-free harvesting performance
