AGCO Corporation today announced the launch of the Massey Ferguson Series 1 baler, which delivers "efficiency, quality and operator comfort with simple, proven technology and rugged reliability." The series is specially designed to work in challenging dry hay, straw and waste applications. Massey Ferguson will display the new baler at this year's Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Illinois, and is accepting pre-orders.

“Baling dry hay and stubble puts a lot of strain on hay equipment,” said Matt LeCroy, director of hay and harvesting for Massey Ferguson North America. “Our engineering team in Hesston, Kansas, worked diligently to provide an efficient solution that would withstand the challenging conditions our farmers face in the field.”

According to company information, the Massey Ferguson Series 1 Round Baler integrates proven technology from decades of industry-leading innovation to make the baling process more efficient and comfortable than ever. It is available in two variable chamber models, the RB.146, which produces round bales up to 4 x 6 feet, and the RB.156, for bales up to 5 x 6 feet.

Engineers designed the Series 1 baler to "deliver reliable, long-lasting service, even in the challenging conditions of dry hay production in North America." Reinforced components ensure the new baler can withstand the harshest conditions.
