Self-Propelled Windrowers

9000 Series

We know hay like no one else

Hay is serious business and we can appreciate that. That's why we've been equipping farmers with the most innovative and productive hay equipment for decades. Hesston invented the first self-propelled windrower, the large rectangular baler, center-pivoting mower conditioners and the first fully automatic round baler. We are the choice of those who are serious about making hay their business. The Hesston 9000 Series self-propelled windrowers carry on the tradition with proven design and innovation. It's equipment for serious hay makers from the company that knows hay best.



In 1955 the Hesston Model 100 was introduced, making it the industry's first commercially available self-propelled windrower. Twelve years later, we introduced the Hydro-Static 600, the first hydrostatic drive windrower in the industry. Today we are still creating innovations with real payoff for the commercial hay producer.

Hesston knows windrowers

AGCO Hesston dealers offer you two windrower models to match your operation. The 9000 Series features a deluxe cab, a wide variety of headers and the added option of a disc header with the Model 9635. This model is a good choice for custom cutters and large hay operations with multiple annual cuttings.

Hesston knows usability

Hesston is unmatched in the ability to have headers interchanged and attach quickly. Our hydraulic system allows the operator to change headers by simply attaching the unit and connecting the electrical wiring harness. The windrower "senses" which header is attached and automatically adjusts hydraulic flow to match the header type (i.e. a draper header runs slower than a disc header). A 3-point hitch style header connection not only improves the header's ability to follow ground contours but also streamlines hook-up. Optional hydraulic quick coupler also can simplify header changes without sacrificing hydraulic flow.

Picking the Hesston windrower to suit your operation


The ability to handle any Hesston sickle or draper header allows the 9435 to meet the productivity needs of custom hay operators, large grain and hay growers, and commercial hay operations.


Designed and powered to handle the 9190 and 9192 disc headers, as well as any other header in the lineup, the 9635 is ideal for the custom operator, large rancher or dairy/livestock operator who has to put up large volumes of hay on a timely basis.

Hesston knows versatility

No one windrower is designed for every condition. The Hesston 9000 Series is designed to be easily customized to your operation. For larger hay windrows that match the capacity of big balers and high-capacity forage harvesters, add the double windrow attachment to the 9435 or 9635 or the windrow tripler kit on the 9635. An offset tailwheel kit is available to reposition the right tailwheel behind the axle when building double windrows.


Cab comfort and controls

We know you're going to spend many hours on your Hesston windrower which is why we designed it to have the kind of comfort and quietness that keeps you productive, no matter how long the day. The smooth ride starts with the longer wheelbase that helps level the contours on rough fields. Large-diameter tires, extended frame, the isolation-mounted cab and a fully adjustable air-ride seat also work to keep the ride smooth. A seat-mounted console, which adjusts vertically and horizontally to fit the operator, puts all regularly used controls at your fingertips even as the seat moves up and down. An instrument gauge cluster, incorporated into the control console is at eye level while viewing the header and includes a full bank of gauges, monitors and indicator lights to alert the operator of any problem. The cab on the 9000 Series is fitted with both a heater and high-capacity air conditioner to keep the operator environment comfortable, no matter the temperature outside. The cab also includes an instructor's seat with seat belt, 73 square feet of tinted glass and a larger, curved windshield.

Optional cab suspension

An optional cab suspension system, which incorporates dual air bags, an air reservoir and dual shock absorbers, is available on the Model 9635 tractor to help reduce operator fatigue and improve productivity. The system is especially valuable when harvesting rough and uneven fields with the high-speed 9190 or 9192 RazorBarTM disc header.

Keep making hay after the sun goes down

A full bank of rectangular halogen lights that includes five at the front of the cab, two at the rear of the cab and one at the rear of the tractor turn night into day and give you the extra hours to get the job done.


Standard on the 9635 and optional on the 9435, a performance monitor mounted on the steering column provides ground speed, header speed, engine rpm, acres per hour, field acres cut and total acres cut.

In addition to speed and direction, the travel control lever is used to control header lift, header tilt, swathboard actuation, reel raise and lower, reel speed and monitor selection (some functions require optional kits).

Hesston knows productivity

At the heart of every Hesston windrower is an AGCO SISU POWER diesel engine. All engines are turbocharged and feature electronic engine management and a common rail fuel system for quick response and the reserve torque to handle variable conditions.

Positive ground drive

A pair of Sauer-Danfoss hydrostatic pumps power wheel motors that are attached directly to the planetary drives, eliminating the need for chain drives. Superior torque and radial load characteristics from the planetary drives further contributes to the pulling power when climbing hills or crossing ditches. The Model 9635 is additionally equipped with a step-up gearbox, which allows for better torque in low range and faster road speeds in high range.

Fingertip hydraulic control

A pioneer in the use of hydraulic header drive, which eliminates the need for driveshafts and u-joints, Hesston built headers are electronically engaged with a single toggle switch on the operator's console. Hydraulic header flotation, which is standard on both 9000 Series windrowers, is just as easily adjusted via a gauge and switch on the console-- allowing on-the-go adjustment to changing field and crop conditions. For added convenience, hydraulic header tilt is another standard feature while electric swathboard actuation is available as an option on all disc and sickle headers.


RazorBar disc header

When it comes to acres per hour, there's nothing that lays a crop on the ground faster than a 9190 or 9120 RazorBarTM disc header. Featuring a new lower profile, spur gear cutterbed that's thinner in design for closer cutting, it slices a 16-foot swath through lush alfalfa, tangled grass or tall sudan with equal ease. The modular heavy-duty design is built for endurance and longevity. The wide-profile teeth offer increased gear-to-gear contact and the entire drive train is designed to handle maximum load for whatever length of time is needed. The RazorBar's sealed bearings also provide constant lubrication, no matter the slope of the terrain which is an exclusive feature available only from Hesston. Should the worst happen, the gear spindle is designed to shear off outside the cutterbed, keeping contamination away from the gears. The bottom line is the stronger gear bed used allows the RazorBar header to operate without the use of a weakened sheer hub. Each gear assembly and adjacent idler gear can be individually removed through the top of the module, without disassembly of the cutterbar. Other new features of the RazorBar include: · · · · · Radura® high-carbon steel knives in a choice of sizes and bevels. Counter-rotating discs with increased overlap. Sloping disc hub mounts for reduced debris buildup. Ductile cast-iron module housings that are machined for perfect alignment and maximum durability. Augers on each end of the cutterbar that assist the cage crop conveyors in moving material to the conditioner.

Standard or double conditioning

While the Model 9190 RazorBar header features the standard steel-on-steel conditioner, the Model 9192 uses the Hesston Advanced Conditioning System, which includes two sets of steel-on-steel rolls. All rolls feature a herringbone tread pattern that cracks stems without stripping leaves and each set of rolls, whether single or double, feature hydraulic roll tension that provides constant roll pressure, yet is easy to adjust.

Adjust to any crop or field condition

Hesston 9190 and 9192 disc headers were designed for adaptability. Among the standard settings are: · · · ·


Header height is adjustable from 0.75 to 3 inches to match field conditions and crop types. Roll gap can be varied from 1/16th to 1/8th inch for the desired crimping action. Disc speed is infinitely variable from 1,600 to 2,600 rpm to match crop conditions. Header flotation ranges from 1,200 to 2,200 psi to control bounce and match field conditions.

Dual hydraulic motors, which drive the cutterbed from each end, provide even torque load across the entire width of the cutterbar for increased reliability.

A patented 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.

The Hesston dual auger system features a slip clutch on each auger for maximum protection, as well as center supports on the bottom augers for less vibration and reduced risk of damage. Meanwhile, the top auger floats up to 1.4 inches (36 mm) for more efficient feeding in a wider range of crop conditions.

Unlike traditional conditioners, the Advanced Conditioning System on the Model 9145 sickle header uses two pairs of independently controlled herringbone conditioner rolls positioned in line for double conditioning. A pair of steel-on-steel rolls start the conditioning process, while a pair of shallow-lug, machined rubber rolls provide the extra crushing action that speeds crop drying.

Sickle headers

Hesston invented the auger header years ago to provide the smooth, clean cutting farmers demand from a sicklebar/auger header. Available in 14-, 16- and 18-foot cutting widths the Model 9125 features the Hesston trademark dual augers along with a double sickle and a single pair of rubber-on-steel conditioner rolls. The Model 9145 features the exclusive Advanced Conditioning System in addition to the 9100 Series' standard features and is available in 14- and 16-foot cutting widths. All models feature hydraulic drive, hydraulic header flotation and hydraulic roll tension for easy adjustment and time-tested reliability. All 9125 and 9145 sickle headers also offer you the choice of standard range guards, with their adjustable sickle hold-downs or stub guards, which excel in wet and matted conditions for clean cutting and trouble-free operation.

Time-tested features

· A standard five-bat reel that takes smaller "bites" provides smooth feeding to the augers and conditioner. · A half-swaybar dual sickle drive system uses a counter-balanced flywheel to reduce peak starting, stopping and cutting loads. The system also reduces vibration and side-to-side movement while driving the sickle at 1,840 strokes per minute. · Dual, counter-rotating augers, which provide two separate "live" feeding elements, ensure smooth, even feeding across the full width of the conditioner rolls. · A standard header reverser (on 9125 models only) allows the operator to back large objects or slugs out of the header without leaving the seat. · Tine tubes are segmented between bulkhead spiders for quicker and easier tine replacement. Reel tine tubes also rotate on sealed ball bearings for longer life and less downtime. · Sickle sections are bolted to the sickle bar, rather than riveted, for quicker, easier field replacement.


Cutting uniform swaths

Turn any 9000 Series model into a high-capacity swather by simply adding a Hesston 5200 Series draper header. Choose from five centerdelivery head widths -- 18-, 22-, 25-, 30- and 36-foot (5.5, 6.7, 7.6, 9.1 and 10.9 m) -- that build the perfect swath for today's high-capacity combines and harvesters. Or select one of three triple-delivery models in 22-, 25- and 30-foot (6.7, 7.6 and 9.1 m) cutting widths. These shiftable draper models let you position the swath at the center, or for double swaths crop can be positioned at either the left or right side of the head.

Eliminating sickle vibration

Whether you're cutting close to the ground or leaving 10 inches of stubble, you can count on the 5200 header for smooth, clean performance. A hydraulically driven sickle drive features a planetary gear system that eliminates starting and stopping loads. The lack of shafts, belts and sheaves translates into reduced maintenance. The planetary drive, which runs at 1,400 strokes per minute, also produces a linear knife movement that eliminates up-and-down and side-to-side movement during its stroke for less wear and better cutting performance. Finally, a skid plate along the bottom of the cutterbar protects the entire unit when cutting close to the ground.


The hydraulic reel drive is infinitely variable from 0 to 60 rpm to precisely match reel speed to ground speed and crop conditions.

Adjust the windrow opening from 54 to 70 inches (1.37 ­ 1.78 m) to accommodate a wide variety of grain and oilseed crops. Narrowopening inserts are available for light or short crops.

Heavy-duty, nylon reinforced belts are driven by a hydraulic motor and are adjustable from the cab to any speed from 0 to 600 feet (0 ­ 183 m) per minute.

The rotary screen air intake on the 9435 and 9635, sits forward of the engine and high on the tractor, where it provides cleaner air to the engine without the worry of chaff and debris buildup.

Not only is the cab air filter located externally, where it can be changed without dropping contents into the cab, but the system is designed to purge dust from the filter each time the cab door is closed, extending the filter life.

Quicker service means greater productivity

Like any harvesting unit, a windrower or swather needs to be ready to go when the crop is ready to cut. With every redesign, Hesston windrowers have improved reliability and serviceability as well as efficiency, strength and productivity. For example, the one-piece engine hood offers two positions for quicker, easier access the first for daily service, or the second opens fully for increased engine compartment access for periodic service and maintenance. Top-hinged radiator compartment doors, along with hydraulic oil cooler and air conditioner condenser units that slide out, further add to the service convenience. We've added a walkway with non-slip frictions strips to the top of the headers for safer, easier access when cleaning the cab windows.

Rapid refueling

A folding access ladder and service platform permit quick refueling, even if it only comes once a day, thanks to a 100-gallon (377.4 L) fuel tank on the Model 9635 and an 80-gallon tank (303 L) on the Model 9435.
