Two new models complete the MacDon M5 Series windrower lineup. The M105 and M155 windrowers are powered by Tier 3–compliant Cummins engines that offer 110 hp and 148 hp, respectively, and automatically boost power when in extreme conditions.

To increase fuel efficiency, the Intermediate Speed Control allows header functions to operate at full power with reduced engine revolutions per minute. The M155 features the new Ultra Glide cab suspension system and Dual Direction cab technology with a faster road speed when in the cab forward position.

The machines are designed with movable rail platforms and cooling system cores that easily slide or swing out of the way for fast cleaning. The redesigned chassis features a wide wheel stance and increased crop clearance below the frame. List prices: M105, $96,523; M155, $101,933. Contact:
