Hesston by Massey 1836 Square Baler

The Hesston 1836 is designed for the hay producer or livestock owner who needs a strong, reliable baler for a minimal number of acres. The 1836 churns out 14 x 18-inch bales with a plunger speed of 92 strokes per minute and a pickup width of 73.5 inches. Yet it’s built tough enough to pull a loaded bale wagon over rolling terrain — an important factor when the bale thrower option is added.

  • Versatile performance
  • Solid reliability
  • Industry-exclusive in-line design
  • Solid, brick-shaped bales
  • Denser bales with consistent leaf distribution

Featuring the same efficient in-line design as our industry-leading large square balers, the Hesston 1800 Series runs directly behind the tractor and straddles the windrow like a round baler.

It offers benefits you just won’t find with conventional side-feed designs. Bottom line, you’ll just get better hay.

In-Line Ingenuity
Thanks to our exclusive in-line design, every small bale produced by our 1800 Series is easier to handle, stack and feed. Our bales are also denser, with more consistent bale flakes and less leaf loss.

Good-bye flimsy, banana-shaped bales that fall apart at the drop of a hat. The Hesston
1800 Series delivers bales that are consistently higher quality and uniform in shape.

On competitive balers, the plunger has to form, cut and compress the hay that’s side-delivered through the bale chamber into an individual bale slice.

On the Hesston 1800 Series, these operations are evenly distributed between the pre-forming chamber, packer/stuffer and plunger, which helps minimize peak loading on the entire drive system.

And because each bale flake is pre-formed before it goes into the bale chamber, the nutritious leaves are more evenly distributed and the same amount of crop is distributed to each side of the bale. The result is uniform bale density from top-tobottom, side-to-side and end-to-end.

The benefits of in-line design go far beyond better shaped bales. Because field and road positions are one in the same, you save time when you’re on the move. It also means the baler and any wagon pulled behind it are towed in a straight line, for less twist or strain on the baler frame. And the baler can adjust to ground contours faster and easier, since flotation tires are of equal size on both sides of the machine.
