When it comes to drying hay, it’s nearly impossible to beat Mother Nature.
Of course, farmers have utilised nature’s resources – like the wind and sun – for as long as seeds have been planted in the ground. Today, you can accelerate Mother Nature’s gifts by spreading the crop with a professional-grade Massey Ferguson TD Series tedder.

Quality, easy handling and durability.
Offer Valid Until March 31st 2023.
Seventeen MF models provide tedding widths from 4.5 metres to 12.70 metres. Each one offers easily adjusted spreading angles of 15, 18 and 20.5 degrees for adaptability in all forage and crop conditions.
Simple to Set Up and Adjust
All MF models are simple to set up and adjust for quick and efficient ground coverage. Synchronised lifting of exterior rotors via a centralised hydraulic lift system and pressure cylinders ensure optimum performance and eliminate one-sided loads – even on slopes.
SLS (Security Lock System)
SLS (Security Lock System) prevents driveline damage during folding operations.
Fully enclosed rotor head for low maintenance and long service life.
Smooth flat steel tine arms provide excellent power distribution with no crop hang-up.
Technology & Innovation
The tine arms are made of a tough, galvanised flat steel bar, which allows a wide contact surface between tine and rotor disc. This ensures excellent power transmission even under the harshest of working conditions.
Sturdy Frame Joints
The individual rotor frames are connected via sturdy frame joints with special flange sleeves and hardened pins. All joints can be relubricated for extra reliability and durability.
Massey Ferguson rotor heads have an enclosed design which protects all important components from dirt and dust. This design provides years of trouble-free service.
The individual rotors are driven via a generously dimensioned hexagonal shaft and robust universal joints. This type of power transmission is smooth and reliable and free from backlash.
Square Frame Tubes
All MF hay tedders are equipped with thick-walled, strongly dimensioned square frame tubes which ensure excellent rigidity and a very long service life.
Equal-sided tines allow you to achieve an optimum mixing of your high quality forage. During the process, the different layers of forage are perfectly mixed together and turned, providing the optimum production of high-quality forage.
Tines with sides of equal length also provide the benefit that you do not need right-hand and left-hand tines but only one kind of tine, which makes spare parts management easier.
Tine Loss Protection
This protects machines which are following behind and also your valuable livestock. The tines are secured under the tine arm. This arrangement has the advantage that the upper side is smooth and, as a result, forage will not be left hanging.
Super C Tine
The Super C tine has a tine diameter of 9.5 mm, a coil diameter of 70 mm and six windings, making it one of the most efficient on the market and typical of the high quality of each and every Massey Ferguson hay tedder.
Super C Quality
The Super C quality feature guarantees a high level of quality and ensures an extremely long service life. The tines used at Massey Ferguson have to undergo a test cycle and survive 200,000 impacts without damage.
Hook-Shaped Tines Tedding Action
The hooked shape, working angle and the combination of a short and long tines produce an exceptional tedding action: Moves up to 50% more crop on each revolution, Gentle operation protects the crop, Minimises sward damage and crop contamination.
Flexible Hooked Tines
Unique, flexible hooked tines offer clean, even crop pick up, less tine wear and lower risk of breakages.
Hooked Tines - Better Spreading
Better spreading: Longer tines rotate 12% faster than the shorter tines
Hooked Tines - Shorter Tine Movement
Slower moving, shorter tines move lighter and drier top material less far.
Hooked Tines - Longer Tines Movement
Longer tines rotate 12% faster and work further down the crop, collecting the heavier, wetter material and throwing it further - onto the drier material to enhance wilting.
SLS - Security Lock System
SLS is an automatic, hydraulically-activated switch-off and positioning system, with integrated freewheel which interrupts the flow of power to the rotors when the halves of the machine are folded up.
As with all Massey Ferguson hay tedders, the forage is picked up by the tines and turned gently, without damage. A light, loose and well mixed mat of forage is created, to help ensure a top quality end-product. With the central edge spreading device which is fitted as standard, edges of fields no longer present any problems. It’s all high quality forage down to the last blade of grass. Because of the spreading angle adjustment system, you can always adapt your machine according to the harvesting situation. In the working position, the transport chassis is folded up in front of the rotors, which ensures an optimum centre of gravity.
As a result, the chassis does not stand in the ejection path of the forage and the loading created by the centre rotors is reduced to a minimum – perfect pre-requisites for producing your high quality forage.

MF Hay and Forage I Overview
Customer Reviews & Testimonials
Members of Simon Bierton's family have been farming the land that is Perio Barn Farm, at Fotheringhay, near Oundle, Northants, for many years. Today, much of the 450 acres of generally heavy soils, on gently sloping terrain, is devoted to growing crops of winter and spring wheat, with the remainder used for grass leys or are down to permanent pasture.
The Broad family runs a mainly grassland enterprise over the 325 acres of slightly undulating medium loam, split between two farms around Penshurst, in Kent.
