Steel roller conditioners: The crimp style is especially effective for stiff or heavy stem material and produces well-formed windrows over a wide range of widths. Steel rollers are extremely durable and require minimal maintenance. Polyurethane roller conditioners: The rollers deliver a combination crimp-and-crush action while being gentler to leaves. Flail conditioner: The v-tine conditioner removes the stem wax with a crimping action to promote dry-down time. Non conditioner machines are also available when conditioning is not needed.
