The Merge Maxx belt merger, available in 3 models, Merge Maxx 750, Merge Maxx 950 and Merge Maxx 1090 use two adjustable, variable width and bi-directional merger belts that provide multiple swath delivery options. Forage can be delivered into a single central swath, a single lateral swath (left or right side), two lateral swaths (one either side) or a central and left or right lateral swath.
Pick-up and swath width can be adjusted to suit the quantity and type of forage material being harvested, thus enabling the number of passes and associated costs to be reduced. For lateral swaths, the width can be varied between 1.00 and 1.50m. For central swaths, it can be up to 2.20m in width.
Auto-regulating rollers at the front and side of the pick-up unit self-adjust their position according to crop thickness. These in turn pass a consistent and constant supply of forage to the merger belts, thus allowing a uniform, airy and faster-drying swath which makes it easier for the subsequent baler or chopper to collect large volumes of grass. For forage harvesters this can equate to a 2-3 km/h increase in forward operating speed.
