The M2s have two new Stage V Cummins turbo diesel engine options that meet global emission levels while delivering more power, improved efficiency, and easier maintenance. Choose either an M2170 with a 4.5 liter 4 cylinder with a peak 173 HP (129kW) at 1900 rpm, or the mighty M2260 boasting a 6.7 liter 6 cylinder with a peak power delivery of 280hp (209kW) at 2000 rpm. The M2260 also gets an upgraded high-horsepower engine gearbox, this robust design reliably handles the heaviest high-capacity forage loads with ease. Clean, simple, efficient, and powerful, that's how you get more with MacDon M2 Series Windrowers.

M2 Windrowers provide precision control at your fingertips with the all-new HarvestTouch™ Display. HarvestTouch™ precisely tracks your harvesting performance and provides user-customization features through an intuitive touchscreen interface.

The M2's precision controls feature a two-stage control allowing faster and more precise header positioning. In addition, users can easily program up to three One-Touch-Return buttons for immediate control of the header's height, tilt, knife speed, reel, or draper operations.

Trimble-ready integration means your M2 Windrower connects seamlessly to Trimble's guidance system.

M2 Series Windrowers feature a dual radiator design. The cooling fan behind the cab pulls in clean air and kicks in to reverse independ

Featuring the Industry's best crop clearance with 115 cm (45") of height and 341 cm (134") of width, big bushy swaths flow effortlessly under M2 Series Windrowers.* Ample header lift height lets you get up and over the tallest bushiest windrows with ease.

*Measurements may vary depending on tires and tire setup.

MacDon's patented CrossFlex™ Suspension makes in-field speeds up to 29 km/h (18 mph) possible, but MacDon's innovation doesn't stop there. With our patented Dual Direction® steering, you can switch from field to road mode in seconds and travel at speeds up to 45 km/h (28 mph)*.

Hooking up and transporting MacDon drapers is quick and easy with MacDon's Easy Move Transport System and allows towing speeds up to 32 km/h (20 mph)*. Spending more time in the field instead of transport is just another way you get more with MacDon.

*Always follow local traffic laws and regulations.

MacDon's patented CrossFlex™ Suspension makes in-field speeds up to 29 km/h (18 mph) possible, as this innovative design absorbs impact from rough terrain, allowing smooth harvesting no matter the field condition.

MacDon's Smooth innovations don't stop there. The Ultra Glide® cab has a four-corner independent gas shock suspension system featuring stabilization to prevent cab roll.

CrossFlex™ Suspension, Ultra Glide® cab, and an air ride seat in combination mean you'll enjoy a smooth, comfortable, and controlled harvesting experience with the M2, reducing fatigue to keep you cutting all day long.

M2 Series Windrowers' deluxe cab option takes comfort and performance to the next level, featuring heated and vented leather seating, power mirrors, and 360 Degree Night Vision from 8 high-power LED work lights. The bright halo of light from our Night Vision lets you transition smoothly from day to night.

M2 Windrowers equipped with the deluxe cab option get you more with MacDon's 360 Degree Night Vision. Eight high-power LED work lights create a bright halo of light that lets you work safely long after the sun goes down.

M2 Series Windrowers are compatible with several MacDon headers, including the A40DX, D1X, D1XL, D2, R1, R2 and all your favorite attachments like the DWA (Double Windrow Attachment), Swath Compressor, and HC20 (Hay Conditioner).

MacDon's optional Double Windrow Attachment (DWA)* lets you achieve the ultimate windrow when paired with a rotary disc header. This option is ideal for keeping today's large forage harvesters working at capacity, allowing operators to combine up to three passes into a single windrow. That translates into significant time and fuel savings in the field. The DWA is just another innovative solution that lets you get more with MacDon.

*Double Windrow Attachment is not compatible with all units.

Continuing MacDon's tradition of innovative solutions to make harvesting easy, the M2's design means you'll spend less time setting up and more time cutting.

• DEF and fuel fill at ground level

• 530 liter (140 gallon) fuel tank keeps you cutting all day

• Larger 55 liter (14.5 gallon) DEF tank (M2260)

• Check the engine oil without lifting the hood

• Hydraulic oil level sight glass

• Easy access to the radiator and cooler box

• Sliding platform allows easy access

• Multi-coupler hydraulic hook-ups

• Easy-access lockable toolbox conveniently tucked away in the M2's platform

The M2260's upgraded high-horsepower engine gearbox provides power and reliability from its robust design, and daily maintenance is easy too. The gearbox's dipstick lets you accurately check the oil level to ensure everything runs smoothly all day long.

Order an M2 with the HT (High Torque) spec for those working in extremely hilly fields. These High Torque wheel drive units have a higher final drive ratio for increased drive wheel torque, allowing harvesting performance on slopes greater than 18 degrees (32% grade).*

*Factory order only. Note: The High Torque option decreases speed in non-extreme and flat ground conditions.

Keep Your Harvesting Options Open
As a farmer you deal with risk every day, so a little bit of control goes a long way. MacDon M2 Series Windrowers help widen your harvest window and give you more options to help manage that risk. MacDon has been perfecting the windrower concept for 75 years, so we know that with swathing comes great harvesting benefits: quicker harvest times, fully organic harvesting, a shorter season, an alternative to natural drying or desiccation, and even crop ripening. Here’s how MacDon Windrowers can help you reach the next level of harvesting performance.
