Choose from a Cummins 6.7 liter turbo diesel engine that delivers 248 horsepower at 2200 rpm or a Cummins 4.5 liter Turbo with 173 horsepower at 2400 rpm. Either way, more engine power combined with increased header drive capacity means M1 Series Windrowers are ready for any harvesting situation.
Cool Under Pressure
Keeping their cool under pressure, M1 Series Windrowers use a new dual radiator design to draw air from the cleanest location, behind the cab. To keep the clean air flowing constantly a hydraulic-drive reversing fan works on the go to blow out unwanted debris, keeping the engine and hydraulics running cool and efficiently, without the need of operator input.
A Fast Smooth Ride
MacDon’s all-new patented CrossFlex™ Suspension makes the 18 mph (29 km/h) in-field and 28 mph (45 km/h) road speeds feel like a relaxed cruise. This unique design absorbs impact from rough terrain allowing smooth harvesting no matter the field condition.
Faster in & Between Fields*
Thanks to MacDon’s patented Dual Direction® technology you can switch from field to road mode in seconds and travel at speeds of up to 28 mph (45 km/h). In most cases there’s no need to detach the header, saving you time and labor when moving from field to field. D1XL Series Draper Headers can be easily transported at 20 mph (32 km/h) with MacDon Windrowers using our Slow Speed Transport system. Either way, you’ll be spending less time in transport and more time cutting.
360˚ Night Vision
The deluxe cab option takes performance to the next level with our 360˚ Night Vision from 8 high power LED work lights. The bright halo of light from our 360˚ Night Vision lets you work safely long after the sun goes down.
DWA Saves Time & Money
MacDon’s optional Double Windrow Attachment lets you achieve the ultimate windrow when paired with a rotary disc header. Ideal for keeping today’s large forage harvesters working at capacity, this option allows operators to combine up to three passes into a single windrow. That translates into significant time and fuel savings in the field.
Massive Crop Clearance Ability
Featuring the Industry’s Best Crop Clearance with 46” (117 cm) of height and 152” (386 cm) of width, big bushy swaths flow effortlessly under the M1240. Header lift height is improved too, 3" higher than our previous model.
Track your Harvest Performance
Operators will enjoy the all-new 7" LCD Harvest Performance Tracker. Track your harvest performance with an easy to read interface providing on board diagnostic readings and user customizing features.
The new two stage controls allow for faster and more precise positioning of the header. Users can easily program up to three One-Touch-Return buttons for fast in-field control of the header’s height, tilt, cutting speed, reel, and draper operation.
MacDon’s Ultra Glide® cab has a four-corner independent gas shock suspension system featuring stabilization to prevent cab roll. The CrossFlex™ Suspension is designed to absorb impacts from rough terrain, and an air ride seat means operators will enjoy a smooth, comfortable, and controlled ride reducing fatigue and keeping them cutting all day long.
Deluxe Comfort & Productivity
Our deluxe cab option takes comfort and performance to the next level, featuring heated and vented leather seating, power mirrors, and 360˚ Night Vision from 8 high power LED work lights. The bright halo of light from our Night Vision lets you smoothly transition from day to night.
The Perfect Windrow
MacDon’s patented Swath Compressor creates a smooth, even slope that gently compresses and forms loose bushy swaths into perfect windrows every time. Compressor adjustment happens from the cab and is displayed on-screen. This control can also be programmed into the Windrower’s One-Touch-Return functions. Best of all, when you switch the Dual Direction to road mode, the MacDon Swath Compressor lifts up under the frame for quick unobstructed transport.
