Ag machinery maker John Deere has released details of the new 5M models set to hit the New Zealand market next year.
The new line of draper headers will complement existing header series for the brands and will be available to order in early 2022 at Case IH and New Holland dealers worldwide, except South America.
“New Holland and MacDon are well established within our respective areas of the harvesting process. Bringing together the expertise from both brands will unlock the potential to significantly increase our customers’ in-field performance and decrease their running costs,” says Lars Skjoldager Sorensen, head of harvesting product management NHA.
“This partnership creates a best-case scenario for both brands, our dealers, and most importantly our customers.”
Based in Manitoba, Canada, MacDon has manufactured highperformance harvesting equipment for more than 70 years. The company is well known for working directly with producers and custom harvesters to make equipment that helps producers efficiently harvest crops.
