Vemeer Reveals new Mower Conditioner Line - MC2800, MC3300 and MC3700
Vermeer Corporation 641-621-8339
Vermeer, of Pella, Iowa, has introduced a mower conditioner line that combines productivity, flexibility and convenience into one package. Three models are available--the MC2800 (9.1 feet), MC3300 (10.5 feet) and MC3700 (12 feet) mower conditioners. A Q3 cutter bar requires less horsepower while providing shear protection. The modular, shaft-driven Q3 cutter bar helps make this line more fuel-efficient with minimal gear-to-gear interface, requiring less horsepower than gear bed style cutter bars. Innovations simplify changing blades and repairing a sheared device. Operators can customize suspension settings for their specific field conditions with a simple turn of a lever, resulting in less cutter bar weight on the ground and less stress on the header. An option of either a steel roller or v-tine conditioner is available on the models. For more information, contact a dealer or visit www.vermeer.com.
