DOUBLE KNOTTING

  • PRECISION KNOTTING. GENTLE BALE HANDLING

    Pioneering double knot technology for over 25 years, New Holland has been on an unswerving quest to continually improve this industry-leading technology. The BigBaler’s double knot system guarantees higher bale density with lower knotting strain. Knotting technology has been tailored to the BigBaler’s dimensions, with four knots on the BigBaler 870 and 890 models or six knots per bale on the BigBaler 1270 and 1290 variants. But that’s not all. With over 15,000 bales tied without a miss-tie, reliability and accuracy come as standard. Improved debris management and gentle set-down logic complete the most advance baling technology around. Quite simply, the BigBaler still leads the field over a quarter of a century on.
  • KNOT AND KNOT AGAIN FOR ULTIMATE BALE INTEGRITY

    High bale density is guaranteed as virtually no strain is placed on the twine or the knotter during bale formation. How? Well it’s time to get technical. Two twine feed positions mean that the twines do not slide over the bale surface while the crop is pushed through the bale chamber. Furthermore, the final knot on the completed bale is made before the first knot on the new bale is tied to further enhance the reliability of the baling process.

  • CLEAN KNOTTERS FOR ENHANCED PRODUCTIVITY

    Knotter reliability is at the heart of the baling process. After all, knot quality is what keeps a bale a bale instead of a mound of material. The redesigned knotter shielding keeps the knotters free from debris for improved performance. Advanced computational fluid dynamic technology was used to analyse the airflow around the knotters, and areas of stagnant air, which were potential build-up sites, were identified. Three fans have been precision-placed to nip debris accumulation in the bud. For operations that work in particularly dusty conditions, such as those baling maize straw, an optional automatic blow-off kit can be specified, which directs a jet of high pressure air into the knotters. This is efficiently powered by the tractors pneumatic brakes. The frequency is controlled via the IntelliView™ monitor.
  • IMMEDIATE MISS-TIE NOTIFICATION

    An advanced miss-tie detection sensor immediately informs operators in the unlikely event of a miss-tie via the IntelliView™ monitor. The traditional knotting flags complement this system and provide an immediate visual warning: when one knotting flag drops down, a miss-tie has occurred.
