Features include 10-ball twine storage, an adjustable drawbar that allows attachment to a wider range of tractors and a knotter fan (optional) to keep the knotters clean. All are part of the high-performance package that also includes the hydraulic bale density system. We’ve also added 18 more inches to the OptiForm bale chamber, compared to the Hesston 1839. This ensures even greater consistency in bale shape and density.
