About Hesston

With hundreds of patents to its credit, Hesston® has been the hay and forage innovator since 1955, when the company developed the first commercially available self-propelled windrower. Other industry "firsts" have included the first hydrostatic windrower, the first center-pivot mower-conditioner and the first big rectangular baler—which had nearly 50 individual patents of its own.

Today, Hesston products from AGCO continue to lead the way in advanced hay and forage technology. The company offers mowing systems, rakes and tedders, baling systems, forage equipment, manure spreaders and windrowers and heads.

Hesston dealers are unmatched in their knowledge of the products, their application, and service and parts support. They help customers take full advantage of the advanced features built into every Hesston machine, adjusting the equipment to match field and crop conditions and meet specific customer needs.
