The article focuses on the higher capacity MF 1837 square baler introduced by Massey Fergus. The new baler, with its higher plunger speed and nearly 30 percent wider pickup, is a direct response to Massey Ferguson customer requests. The centerline design eliminates two 90-degree changes in crop direction found in most competitive small square balers. Hay moves straight through the baler, minimizing leaf loss and building a better-formed, higher quality bale. Leaf retention is further aided by the baler's low profile, which reduces the lifting needed to move hay into the pre-forming chamber.
