The FINANCIAL — Building on the success of the W150 Self-Propelled Windrower released three years ago, John Deere announces its replacement with the new W155 Windrower for hay and forage producers.
The self-propelled windrower offers fast cutting speeds and easy-to-maneuver controls, streamlining forage cutting and windrowing for all types of conditions and terrain, according to John Deere.
“The W155 is designed to maximize cutting and windrowing performance in the field and enhance the operator experience under a wide variety of growing conditions while meeting government regulations,” says Jeremy Unruh, product line marketing manager for John Deere. “We built on the success of the W150 to include new features like the Final Tier 4 PowerTech 4.5 Liter engine that generates 155 horsepower and provides the low-speed torque ideal for high altitude operation and fast acceleration without stalling.”
The W155 Self-Propelled Windrower offers features to enhance operator comfort and convenience. These include a four-point independent spring and shock cab suspension design, a reversible operating station and a single-point multi-coupler with a hydraulic center link (controlled from the cab).
In addition, the W155 comes with the option of an AutoTrac Controller kit. When paired with AutoTrac Activation, GreenStar Display and the StarFire 3000 receiver, the controller kit can reduce header overlap by up-to 90 percent, which allows operators to cover more acres in less time.
“Everything about the W155 Self-Propelled Windrower is designed to increase performance and uptime while cutting and curing grain and forage,” adds Unruh. “With all the features that we’ve included, it’s clear that the W155 adds another excellent model to the already successful hay and forage product lineup.”
