Produce Quality Hay Faster

03/06/2013 @ 10:04am

Massey Ferguson’s new expansive TD Series tedders are designed to help commercial hay producers cut drying time and increase tedding efficiency to produce hay faster.

“The longer hay lies in the field for drying, the more opportunity there is for it to be damaged by rain or bleaching from the sun,” explains Dean Morrell with Massey Ferguson. “Both rain and sun decrease the nutritional value and palatability. The new TD Series tedders spread the hay out to their full width to help cut drying time so hay may be harvested quickly and at its optimum quality.”

The TD1655 is a 33-foot, 6-inch model, and the TD1665 is a 41-foot, 8-inch model; both are equipped with convenient transport chassis. The chassis allows rotors to be lifted off the ground and supported in a vertical position, which improves maneuverability in and out of fields and allows on-road transport speeds up to 30 mph. Both models are also equipped with Super C coil tines that have six full windings per tine to make them flexible and durable. The C-coil tines are mounted on the bottom of the tine arm, which results in better deflection and reduces crop buildup.

The TD1655 starts at $27,903 and the TD1665 at $32,960.
