AGCO’s large and dynamic booth fits prominently in the show’s proceedings and will feature new equipment and interactive experiences from across its brand lineup that make it a must-see stop for all attendees:
Massey Ferguson 8S Series Tractor: New to World Ag Expo! The 8S Series tractor opens a new era for Massey Ferguson’s storied brand and World Ag Expo attendees will be the first on the West Coast to see it! The 8S project began from a blank page and built a complete farming solution based on an in-depth “Voice of the Customer” study, which included one-on-one interviews with operators around the globe. The result is a revolutionary and powerful tractor with a spacious cab, less noise and vibration, and better visibility for more productive operations.
Hesston WR Series Windrower by Massey Ferguson: Debuting at World Ag Expo! Hesston’s hay and foraging solutions have long been the equipment of choice for farmers across the United States and attendees will be the first to see the new WR Series self-propelled windrower. Larger fuel capacity and hydraulic efficiencies means the new WR Series offers more uptime, more power, and more comfort to maximize hay production and quality. The WR Series is a smarter, more powerful way to better hay.
Hesston Balers and Rakes: Hesston by Massey Ferguson has produced the industry’s leading balers and rakes for generations, and both will be on-hand for up-close inspection. Available on the lot will be Hesston’s 2200 Series large square baler, 1800 Series small square baler, and RK Series rotary rakes.
FendtONE Experience Center: New to World Ag Expo! The Fendt Mobile Experience Center is an innovative digital experience that educates farmers on the unique capabilities of Fendt’s latest technology and equipment.
