These balers are low on cost, but high on quality construction and advanced features. The 3’x4’ and 4’x5’ balers in the 1700 Series lineup are a perfect match for smaller scale operations focused on dry hay production.
Our 1700 series round balers are built to get the job done. The 1745 is equipped with features others include only on their premium round balers, such as 2-cylinder and 2-spring density system, wedge grip forming belts and a second to none mesh system.
The 1745's balanced tension system uses twin hydraulic cylinders and 2 springs to maintain tension and build more uniform bales
Get a grip
In order to positively grip incoming hay and build consistent dense bales, the 1745 utilizes wedge grip forming belts with alligator laces. These belts let you easily bale a wide range of crops and are easily serviced as needed.
Our patented open-throat design and vertical bale chamber allows the bale to start quickly without helper rolls for consistently solid, high-quality bales
Tie one on
Deluxe Auto-tie bale monitor on the 1745 gives you fingertip control of automatic, semi-automatic or manual tying modes
That's a wrap
All models except the 1734 feature a mesh wrap option with easy mesh routing and extra roll storage to keep you baling longer
More is less
The 1745 is capable of packing an industry leading 1250 lbs. into a dry hay bale, 25% more than our competitors. More hay per bale provides you many benefits, fewer bales to gather, load, transport and store which saves you time and money.
Drive to succeed
The 1734 and 1745 feature the legendary Hesston drive system for long-lasting performance, reduced maintenance, and lower operating costs
Twine x 2
A single arm applies two twines at once, decreasing tying time
