The MF 1840 small rectangular baler employs a ‘centre-line’ design in which the crop flows through the machine in a straight line – working like a mini large square baler, improving efficiency because the crop is not turned before entering the chamber.
Key features are retained from its predecessor , such as narrow transport width, 1.9m wide pick-up with standard gauge wheels, short stroke and high speed.

OPTIFORM BALE CHAMBER
To ensure superb bale shape in all conditions and maintain consistent density, the OptiForm bale chamber is 460 mm or 30% longer when compared to the previous MF 1839 baler.
CENTRAL KNOTTER GREASING KIT
A new centralised greasing system is now available. Grease is fed to twelve grease points via a distribution block. There are six grease points on each knotter head. The system ensures the components are efficiently and quickly lubricated.
Gauge wheels, fitted as standard to either side, further help the pick-up to follow uneven ground contours, avoiding pick-up tine damage.
PRE-FORMED SLICE CONCEPT
With a short stroke and high speed plunger, the pre-formed slice concept enables the baler to operate with high capacity, significantly reducing plunger bearing wear whilst generating a greater number of bales.
The crop is delivered into the pre-compression chamber where the flake is pre-formed before entering the main chamber. This ensures a well-shaped bale is formed improving bale density and reducing stress on components giving improved baler durability.
The 1.9 metre wide pick-up features a small diameter, ‘low-profile’ design with closely spaced tines ensuring that windrows are picked up cleanly with minimal disturbance and leaf loss.
