The W260 Self-Propelled Windrower and 500R Rotary Platform are new additions to the John Deere windrower product line. These models bring new features such as Pivot Pro, independent float, an industry-leading 260 rated horsepower with 285 maximum horsepower, increased platform capacity, and improved crop flow performance. The 500R Rotary Platform , delivers uniform windrows, allowing John Deere's single-conditioner system to perform as well as dual-conditioner platforms available today. Pivot Pro brings the productivity of integrated AutoTrac-, with field operating speeds up to 29 kph (18 mph) and a line acquisition consistency of [+ or -]101 mm ([+ or -]4 in.), to customers with center-pivot irrigation. The ability to independently adjust float suspension results in less dirt in the windrow, delivering higher-quality hay and forage. These new products deliver a significant increase in productivity and were developed through close collaboration with a broad base of customers.
