Features

Comfort

  • EASY AS 1, 2, 3: Reloads can be completed in less than 30 seconds and are as simple as inserting a fresh roll, tucking the mesh tail and then closing the mesh brake. Reloads can be easily completed by one person with no tools, reducing downtime.
  • AUTOMATIC BALING: The 2900 Series offers an industry-exclusive auto cycle configuration. Onboard hydraulics control the baler from wrapping through ejection, perfect for inexperienced operators or those looking for the ultimate in ease of use.
  • EASILY MONITOR YOUR PROGRESS: The ISO-compliant C1000 monitor gives you real-time, advanced monitoring and baler control.

Key Benefits

  • INNOVATION: The Hesston legacy of haying innovation continues with the 2900 Series. Advances include Sure-Trac crowned drive rollers, a dual-tube twine arm, and 3-ply WedgeGrip bale forming belts — all designed to ensure quality bales and longer service life.
  • CAPABILITY: Available in 4' x 6' and 5' x 6' models, Hesston by Massey Ferguson 2900 Series high-capacity balers represent our very best in efficiency, reliability and convenience.
  • COMFORT: Comfort and ease of use are key in managing long days in the field. While Hesston by Massey Ferguson 2900 Series round balers are some of the simplest round balers to operate and maintain, we’ve included a number of features designed to enhance operator comfort and ease of use to ensure maximum productivity throughout your season.
  • AUTOMATION: Both 2900 Series balers are available as automatic. The baler handles wrapping and ejection of bales on its own, allowing the operator to focus on starting and stopping the tractor.
  • SMOOTH RIDE: A torsion axle and large flotation tires allow 2900 Series balers to glide across the roughest fields with ease while keeping the pickup close to the ground.

Performance

  • BUILD A BETTER BALE: Our Quad Cylinders System keeps belt tension consistent, even when ejecting bales — for better bale density and fewer belt problems.
  • ROTOR SPEEDWAY: Higher capacity, positive rotor feeding incorporates side augers to simplify the drive system and provide quieter, more dependable performance.
  • BETTER VISIBILITY: The 2900 Series' super-wide, low profile starts with a small-diameter pickup that sticks out further for improved visibility.

Productivity

  • QUICK SERVICE: The one-piece service door makes it easy to access all major drive components for fast, convenient maintenance.
  • DRIVE ON: With only five chains and our exclusive reversible 540- or 1,000-gear box, this renowned drive system is simple and strong.
  • GO WIDE: With a wide, low-profile pickup and centering augers, the 2900 Series tackles wide windrows with ease, while maximizing leaf retention.
  • SQUARE THOSE SHOULDERS: By packing the open-throat vertical chamber all the way to the edges, these balers deliver dense, square-shouldered bales.
  • HERE'S THE KICKER: A simplified, positive hydraulic kicker ejects bales gently and puts them right where you want them.
