The new MF 1840 small rectangular baler from Massey Ferguson builds on the success of the MF 1839 with new features to further enhance performance and reliability of the machines.
Like its predecessor, the new MF 1840 is designed and built in Hesston, Kansas, in the USA. The baler employs a novel ‘centre-line’ design in which the crop flows through the machine in a straight line – working like a mini large square baler. This in-line loading improves efficiency because the crop is not turned before entering the chamber.
“There is still a large demand for hay and straw in normal conventional bales. Massey Ferguson continues to invest in improving designs to ensure these balers provide the same reliability and performance as our renowned large square balers,” says Mark Grigson, Product Marketing Manager – Harvesting. “Whether you are making a few hundred or thousands of bales, the MF 1840 delivers consistent, well-formed and densely packed bales that are the right size for handling and feeding.”
The new MF 1840 makes well formed 356mm x 457mm bales and retains the key features such as narrow transport width, 1.9m wide pick-up with standard gauge wheels, short stroke and high speed plunger as well as the renowned rugged knotters.
