MF mowers and mower conditioners are manufactured with one thing in mind: to cut the biggest jobs down to size.

Models 1474 and 1476 both feature dual sickles to achieve 14-and 16-foot cuts respectively.
The sickle drives are simple and reliable, the sway bar reduces the side to side or up and down movement of the sickle that occurs with wobble box designs.
Decreasing the unwanted movement reduces maintenance and repair costs as well as increases the life of the sickle.
All mowers feature an adjustable lean-bar. Adjusting the bar to 1/3 crop height starts butt-first feeding which helps keep leaves on the stem as well as promotes more uniform and thorough conditioning.
The reel is belt driven on all models, using belt slippage to protect the reel drive is a simple and effective system that eliminates the need for a slip clutch reducing maintenance costs. Reel speed is easily adjustable by the use of shims which allows the operator to match reel speed with crop and field conditions. Tine release is cam track controlled and can be adjusted to accommodate a wide range of crop conditions. The reel bulkheads are bolted on and a sixth bat can be added to all mowers to accommodate very heavy crops.
All models use an over-center cam system to apply roll pressure and release tension allowing slugs to pass though without stopping or plugging the machine.
The conditioning rolls are available in two different configurations:
The over-the-top, box frame design carries the header much like a self-propelled machine for better ground-hugging flotation and higher windrow clearance.
