Welcome to the next generation of windrowers and the next generation of hay. No other self-propelled windrower helps you produce quality hay faster, more efficiently, with greater precision, less fatigue, better fuel economy and lower operating costs.
All windrower models may be equipped with the factory installed high speed transport option. Since the electro-hydraulic steering provides a higher level of windrower control, there is no need for added steering assist mechanisms on the rear axle. There is also no need to reverse the travel direction of the windrower.

All windrowers are pre-wired to accept the Topcon Precision150 AutoSteering system. There is no additional steering wheel required to mount the autosteering system on the windrower. This is because an electronic signal from the System 150 is sent to the windrowers steering controller located under the fuel tank. The autosteering signal is then converted into a steering signal that operates the drive pumps. Since there is no mechanical linkages or steering wheel systems to work through the response time for the autosteering system is drastically reduced, giving operators a much higher degree of steering accuracy.

Virtually all functions of the Windrower are controlled from right here, offering you immediate access to features like a fuel economy monitor, performance monitor, header flotation settings – even diagnostics and troubleshooting. We’ve made sure each one is easy to read, easy to understand and easy to navigate while you operate the windrower.
The main dashboard is icon-based for no-nonsense readability. And a simple, yet comprehensive icon guide is attached to the console for easy reference.
A wealth of useful information is displayed here, including:
Fuel Economy MonitorWe talk about fuel usage in acres per gallon (acres per gallon is fuel used to cut an area) as this gives the end user the fuel economy for the actual work he is doing, not just over the time that he spent in operation. By comparing acres per gallon the operator can make adjustments to maximize his fuel economy versus his operating speed.

The optional semi-active seat reacts to changes in field conditions and adjust the suspension of the seat for improved ride and reduced bounce. The seat controller has a refresh rate of 67 times per second. Since most windrower forces are side to side and fore and aft (not up and down) the semi-active seat is equipped with side to side and fore and aft isolators to reduce the jarring forces that an operator endures during windrower operation. The seat cushions have also been specifically designed for the windrower as they heavily padded on the sides to help keep the operator in their seat, similar to seat cushions on a sports car.

The windrower cab has been re-designed to reduce operation noise while increasing operator comfort and reducing operator fatigue. Extra sound deadening material has been added to the cab, along with a thicker floor mat and headliner, to create a quieter operating environment. The new steering column, has been integrated to give operators a higher range of steering wheel placement adjustments.

The suspended rear axle is composed of a solid, oscillating rear axle beam attached to the frame by parallel link arms on both sides with a lateral support arm underneath. Providing the suspension are two gas shocks and a spring in the center of the axle. This system provides an optimal amount of travel, while still being strong enough to handle pivot tracks and irrigation borders without compromising structural integrity. There are no adjustments required, minimizing maintenance time and repair cost. Machine bounce is reduced while traveling over rough field conditions; helping to increase operator comfort and increase field speeds.

The electro-hydraulic steering provides precision windrower steering with quick response time. By controlling hydraulic pump displacement electronically, the windrower is easier to drive and capable of faster operating speeds without compromising steering control and stability. A sensor in the steering wheel sends a signal to the main controller, which then sends a signal to the drive system’s EDC (Electronic Displacement Control) which adjusts the swash plate angle, changing the drive pump displacement thus steering the windrower.
Adjustable SteeringOperator fatigue is also reduced as the windrower force needed to move the steering wheel is lower and even adjustable. The operator can select how much resistance they want on the steering wheel as well as the steering wheel sensitivity. If the operator only wants a little steering wheel movement to turn the windrower they can increase the sensitivity to high, or if they want more movement to turn the windrower they can set it to low. This allows for customized adaptability to match operator’s driving preference.

Tandem Ground Drive Pump The WR Series incorporates the latest version of tandem mounted Sauer-Danfoss* hydraulic pumps. The tandem pump is electronically controlled for a higher degree of precision accuracy. The operating noise of the tandem pump has also been reduced, creating a quieter operating environment.
High Speed Drive MotorsThe high speed drive option features bent axis variable displacement wheel drive motors. This gives both the pump and motor variable displacement: allowing for increased torque to drive motors during field operation.
GradeabilityGoing up steep grades can often be challenging for windrowers. However, windrowers equipped with the high speed drive motor option provide approximately 14% higher gradeability (aka tractive effort) than the standard speed fixed displacement wheel drive motors. This puts the windrowers power to the ground more efficiently to climb even the toughest hills.

Our high-performance cooling fan, part of our new V-Cool System, goes far beyond ordinary rotary vacuum screen cleaners. Because it’s hydraulically driven, it can run at variable speeds, allowing it to match the cooling needs of the engine. Again, because it’s hydraulic, it can auto-reverse to clean out the radiators and fan screen. And that’s just what it does at 15-minute intervals. The fan reverses upon header shutdown. The reverse fan also senses the cooling performance and adjusts the fan speed or increases the reversing cycle. When you tally up all the advantages, you’ll be a fan of this fan too.
