The belts and pickups are driven using the on-board hydraulic pumps with hydraulic oil from a 67-gallon reservoir. This large capacity ensures that cool oil is always being circulated through the system. The massive reservoir surface area and specially designed system provide excellent cooling in even the hottest conditions, without the need for an oil cooler.
The floating windguard used on the MM 1100 eliminates the need to make adjustments when merging different crops or cuttings. The simple geometry of the floating linkage means the windguard is automatically optimized for differing volumes of crop. The long, curved guiding fingers provide excellent crop guidance onto the center of the belt for fluffy and even windrow creation.
Standard crop netting greatly limits leaf loss during transition to the belt and ultimately improves leaf incorporation in the windrow. Users can adjust the netting from fully extended to halfway to match their needs.
Commercial-grade, single-ply belt conveyors allow the crop to effectively transition into the windrow, regardless of discharge side. The conveyor belt is self-cleaning and requires no tracking adjustments. Each conveyor has an easy to access splice for fast removal or replacement if necessary due to maintenance and normal wear.
To simplify operation with a wide variety of tractors, the MM 1100 is ISOBUS compatible for plug and play capability. If the operator has an ISOBUS compatible terminal, they can control all machine functions on that screen. For controlling the machine on a non-ISOBUS tractor, an operator can purchase the CCI 50 or CCI 1200 terminal with a harness running off the 12V power source.
