|John Deere W155 Self-Propelled Windrower|
Building on the success of the W150 Self-Propelled Windrower released 3 years ago, John Deere announced 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.
“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,” says Jeremy Unruh, product line marketing manager for John Deere.
The 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%, which allows operators to cover more acres in less time.
