From economy models with conditioning options to advanced center-pivot disc models, the rugged 1300 Series Hesston mowers are all you need to bring in your hay crop quickly - and in great condition.
Innovation-Rely on the innovative features of the 1300 Series to cut a wide swath through grass hay, pasture or alfalfa with equal ease.
All new 1300 Series mower conditioners have a standard 3-year cutterbar warranty covering the cast iron module and all internal parts
Preserving Leaf Quality
Our herringbone design, steel on steel condition rolls, feed the crop evenly and gently crimp it every 3 inches for a faster drying time.
All models except the 1359 utilize the Razorbar cutter bar. The Razorbar is a low profile spur gear driven cutter bar making it one of the most durable and shear-resistant cutterbars in the industry.
Capability-For a clean, close cut and efficient conditioning, choose the Series 1300 model that fits your farming needs
In Full Swing
Swinging tongue convenience lets you cut square corners, windrow back and forth on the same side of the field, and steer around obstacles.
The 1300 series disc mower conditioners are designed to provide you with rugged construction and maximum adaptability.
Performance always comes standard.
No matter which Hesston 1300 Series center-pivot disc mower conditioner you choose, you can be assured of quality performance, thanks to impressive features you won’t find on most competitive machines.
The 1380 Series is everything you want from a commercial disc mower conditioner — robust reliability, quality hay and a faster finish. It all adds up to give you self-propelled cut quality without the windrower cost. Its unique RazorBar cutterbar and exclusive hydraulically-tensioned conditioner rolls work together to give you a more precise cut while crimping — but not crushing — nutrient-filled leaves. Crimping breaks open the stem for faster drying while preserving leaf quality. Plus, a herringbone design lays the swath out evenly all the way across, preventing heavy spots across different points of the width. The result is a top-quality, high-protein crop that’s more palatable and more valuable.
Herringbone conditioner rolls
Extra-wide, 110-inch conditioner rolls increase the capacity of the header and allow the crop to be distributed into a thinner mat for more uniform conditioning.
Cage crop conveyors
Rotating cages at each end of the cutterbed help convey crop material to the conditioner rolls while preventing crop material from wrapping on the cutterbed driveshaft.
Top Shield Protector
Tough, poly panels on the underside of the header shields absorb the impact of rocks and debris to keep the sheet metal from being dented, scraped or exposed to rust.
Turbulence reduction roll
A turbulence reduction roll, or helper roll, located between the conditioner rolls and the cutterbed allows the conditioner rolls to be positioned farther back, improving performance in light crops and assisting crop flow in dense, heavier crop.
Pre-lubricated, sealed bearings
Pre-lubricated bearings provide a longer life, while substantially reducing maintenance, compared to cutterbeds that require regular oil checks.
High tooth-to-tooth contact at all times allows the cutterbar to evenly transfer power throughout the cutterbar and help protect the cutterbar against foreign objects.
Smooth-profile rock guards, integrated into the cutterbed, reduce mud build-up, while protecting the disc and knives from rocks and other obstructions.
Conditioner options to match every need--Choose the unique conditioner options that meet your specific crop and operating conditions. Regardless of model, the extra-wide width ensures thorough, uniform conditioning that helps increase the total value of your crop.
Designed to meet the needs of custom and commercial operators, steel-on-steel rolls feature a herringbone pattern that provides long-lasting durability while evenly distributing crop material across the full width of the rolls. They’re also the best option for alfalfa, since they crimp the stems, for faster drying, while maintaining leaf quality.
These rubber-on-steel conditioner rolls are fully engaged to crimp plant stems along their entire length so stems dry at the same speed as the leaves.
Customized performance-Although Hesston 1300 Series disc mower conditioners are built to handle nearly any type of material or challenge, certain situations call for additional equipment. That's why we offer all the options you could ever need to match your specific cropping program. These include:
• Topping skids and/or skid shoes for additional ground clearance.
• A hydraulic header tilt on select models for on-the-go cutterbar angle adjustment.
• Filler pan kit (1383-1386 only) for enhanced performance in tall stalk or biomass crops.
