DewEze has developed a new pivot squeeze bed to help farmers and ranchers with hay handling needs. The pivot bed is built with the same strength and look as current DewEze beds, which are made by Harper (Kan.) Industries. The pivot squeeze bed opens 110 inches wide and closes to 34 inches giving the operator a wide range of motion. The bed also has a new spinner style and is designed for unrolling hay while always having the capability to remain parallel to the bale. There will be a limited quantity available on the pivot squeeze beds this fall. For more information, circle A in the Reader Reply Coupon, contact a dealer or visit www.deweze.com.
Kuhn Krause has introduced class II and class III disc harrow models in the 8210 and 8310 models. They will succeed the popular 8200 and 8300 disc harrow models. For the 8210 two new 5-section 41-foot and 44-foot sizes are designed for wider machines to match today’s high horsepower tractors and the requirement for increased field efficiency. The 8210 and 8310 models offer decreased maintenance with no-grease wing hinges and wheel rocker pivots. Using hardness-matched pins and bushings, service life has been greatly improved with no need to lubricate hinge or wheel rocker pivot joints from the harrows made by the Hutchinson, Kan.-based company. The 8210 disc harrows, for class II, average 220 pounds per blade and are available in sizes from 19 feet to 44 feet, with 22-inch or 24-inch blades. The 8310 disc harrows, for class III, average 250 pounds per blade, are available in sizes from 19 feet through 37 feet, with 24-inch or 26-inch blades.

New small square baler added to manufacturer's line
Hesston by Massey Ferguson, a hay equipment brand from AGCO, has introduced the MF1840 small square baler.
The two-twine, in-line MF1840 features a number of design enhancements that expand its capacity to bale a greater volume of hay more efficiently, even in challenging conditions.
The twine capacity has been increased by 60 percent for less downtime to change spools. The MF1840 balers produce 14-by 18-inch bales.
The MF1840 baler features a redesigned cross auger on the hay pick-up to help bale more hay. The up-turning auger provides smoother flow of a greater quantity of crop, particularly when working in damp or uneven hay. In addition, a redesigned packer fork matches the increased capacity of the pick-up auger, keeping the increased volume of hay moving efficiently into the bale chamber.
Operators looking can add an optional hydraulic density control, which senses the resistance of the bales sliding through the bale chamber and sets the bale tension accordingly.
The system adjusts automatically to keep bale density constant even as moisture conditions change, eliminating the need for the operator to get on and off the tractor to fine-tune density throughout the day. Bale density is monitored from the gauges on the back of the baler and on the front shield and bale density is adjusted using the control box.
An adjustable hitch on the MF1840 makes it faster and easier to hook the baler to a wider range of tractor drawbars.
The twine capacity of the MF1840 baler has been increased to hold 10 spools, reducing downtime needed to refill twine. The 10-spool capacity is the result of a new spider-web spool design, which allows for more efficient twine storage. Fewer stops allow operators to bale more hay per day.
