Commercial hay producers and large farmers can now create large “extra density” square bales that are more efficient to stack, load, transport and store, thanks to the introduction of the new Hesston® by Massey Ferguson® 2170XD Large Square Baler. To accommodate the additional weight associated with heavier bales, the 2170XD model is built tough with heavy-duty tension cylinders and plunger arms, a heavier fly wheel, and higher-capacity gearbox and driveline to provide the reliable performance producers have come to expect from Hesston.

“Since 1978, when we introduced the world’s very first large square baler, Hesston has remained at the forefront of the hay and forage industry,” explains Dean Morrell, product marketing manager for hay and forage. “Each baler we’ve introduced has built on the innovations offered by its predecessor, and pushed the benchmarks for quality and performance higher and higher. The all-new Hesston by Massey Ferguson 2170XD Large Square Baler is no exception, producing a denser bale without compromising the Hesston tradition of proven high-capacity baling.”
