  • GET THE BENEFITS OF SHORTER CHOP LENGTH

    Chopping crop as it’s fed into the baler provides a number of advantages. The shorter particle length allows for tighter packing of material in the bale, better fermentation in silage bales due to less air in the bale and more anaerobic bacteria activity. Cutting silage, hay or straw bales also allows for more efficient feeding and spreading of material. New Holland offers two flexible CropCutter™ feeding systems that allow you to adjust chop length to match your needs.
  • PACKER CUTTER (BIGBALER 230 AND BigBaler 330 only)

    The simple, effective Packer Cutter uses three packer forks and six double tines to feed the crop through a set of serrated knives and into the precompression chamber. Use one to six knives for chop lengths as short as 4.5 inches. New Holland’s staggered tine lengths/rotor lobes prevent crop pinching that’s common with systems using tines or rotor lobes of the same length. A fill-flow floor improves crop flow in high-moisture conditions.
  • ROTOR CUTTER (BIGBALER 330 AND BIGBALER 340 ONLY)

    For the widest range of chop lengths to match specific forage requirements, choose the Rotor Cutter system. Select from two cut length configurations—the short cut configuration delivers chop length as small as 1.5 inches, while the medium cut configuration delivers a chop length of 3.0 inches. The proven W-shaped rotor pattern divides the power requirement equally and also ensures an equal distribution of crop. The rotor now matches the width of the pre-compression chamber for straight-through, smoother crop flow, increased flake density and capacity.
  • SLIDE-OUT KNIFE DRAWER

    The industry-leading, one-piece, slide-out knife drawer on CropCutter™ Rotor Cutter balers makes knife inspection and sharpening fast and easy. Sharp knives require less power and lead to a more consistent cut length.
