With the grass merger concept becoming increasingly popular around Europe, Ploeger used Agritechnica to launch its new self-propelled machine.

The CM4240 merger has a number of capabilities. Thanks to a side-shift function that allows a push-button change from central to side-delivery mode, it can merge both outer swaths to one central swath, similar to how a rake works. It can vary the width from 0.8m to 1.5m. It can merge the entire working width of both mergers to either the left or the right. It also has the capability to work each merger in the opposite direction, allowing it to form two swaths.
