BigBaler







CHOPPING

  • FLEXIBLE CROP PROCESSING SOLUTIONS

    What are your bales going to be used for? As no two baling operations are the same, the BigBaler offers a whole host of crop processing options with different chop lengths to suit your individual requirements. From the standard direct flow option through to the Packer Cutter and CropCutter™ variants, the BigBaler has the solution no matter what the crop, growing conditions, usage profile or conservation method used.
  • STANDARD PROCESSING FOR DIRECT FLOW

    Not all customers and operations require chopped crop, so the standard processing system, which features two or three cranks - with each crank having three fingers, is the natural choice. As no chopping occurs, long unbroken straw or hay is fed directly into the chamber for dust free fodder or bedding, perfect for livestock and equine businesses.
  • EXCELLENT CHOPPING WITH THE PACKER CUTTER

    Perfect for contractors who have a variety of customers with differing needs, the Packer Cutter offers the ultimate in baling flexibility. Available on the BigBaler 870 and 890 models, three cranks - each with two double tine packer forks, efficiently transfer the crop from the MaxiSweep™ pick-up to the pre-compression chamber. When chopping is required, six knives are available and are automatically engaged from the comfort of the cab. These significantly enhance the density and nutritional value of silage bales.
  • HIGHLY EFFICIENT CROPCUTTER™ SYSTEM

    The renowned ‘W’ shape rotor pattern on the CropCutter™ system guarantees an even spread of the cutting force for a smooth cutting action and uniform chopping performance. The ingenious design not only divides the power requirement equally over the two rotor halves, but also ensures an equal distribution of the crop. This matches the width of the pre-compression chamber intake for uniform density and to make blockages a thing of the past. Two chopping lengths can be selected: a medium 8cm chop, which is perfect for bedding, or a super fine 4cm chop for silage, fodder and biomass applications.
  • EASY SLIDE KNIFE DRAWER FOR EFFICIENT SHARPENING

    The CropCutter™ knife drawer pulls smoothly out on self-supporting runners which makes removing and replacing knives after sharpening effortless. Sharper knives require less power, and easy maintenance encourages operators to do it as and when required.
