9’ Wide Road Friendly Transport (Optional)

Road Friendly Transport option is available on both models. This dealer installed option transforms the R1 to a road friendly 9’ (2.75m) wide transport. Switch from field to transport in 30 seconds, for quick, safe travel to, from, and between fields. Moving from a 10 to 16 foot mower can increase productivity by 60%, making this option ideal for operations where width restrictions are the limiting factor.

Clean Cut & 3 Year Cutterbar Warranty

Our low profile forward mounted cutting discs provide a flat header angle resulting in a cleaner, smoother cut than ever before. And this new design is backed by MacDon’s 3 Year Cutterbar Warranty. That’s our way of ensuring worry-free harvesting performance. 

Serious Conditioning

Featuring the industry’s widest conditioning roll at 129” (328cm), and 4 interchangeable conditioning options. Choose from Steel Inter-Meshing, Polyurethane Inter-Meshing, Finger Conditioner, or No Conditioner option. The R1 lays down well-formed, well-conditioned WIDE to NARROW windrows to suit a variety of conditioning needs.

Unique Responsive Float

Using minimal ground pressure, our Responsive Float System moves the R1 “Up and Back”, as it encounters bumps in the field. This unique movement results in true, even ground following and helps ensure a clean, smooth cut.
