BB9000 Series Large Square Balers

CROPCUTTER™ FEEDING SYSTEMCROPCUTTER™ FEEDING SYSTEM

  • CROPCUTTER™ SYSTEMS OFFER IDEAL CHOP LENGHT

    Equip a BB9000 large square baler with one of two New Holland CropCutter feeding systems-the Packer Cutter or the Rotor Cutter. Both slice the crop as it's fed into the baler, producing more tightly packed, heavier bales. The Packer Cutter is controlled from the tractor seat and is available only on the BB9060. The Rotor Cutter offers the widest range of chop lengths to fit any crop or feed needs.
  • BENEFITS OF SHORTER PARTICLE LENGTH

    Chopping the crop before it's baled results in better fermentation in silage bales due to less air in the bale and more anaerobic bacteria. Smaller pieces also help maximize crop compaction. Straw bales are easier to spread for bedding and shorter particles are more absorbent.
  • PACKER CUTTER IS SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE

    The Packer Cutter, available only on the BB9060, uses three packer forks and six double tines to feed the crop-hay, silage or straw-through a set of serrated knives and into the precompression chamber. Use two to six knives for chop lengths from 4.5 to 10 inches. Engage and disengage cutter functions from the tractor seat.
  • ROTOR CUTTER DELIVERS RANGE OF CHOP LENGTHS

    With the widest range of chop lengths, the Rotor Cutter system can meet the feeding needs of any operation. Available on both the BB9060 and BB9080, it uses a massive W-pattern rotor with a bank of knives to cut the crop and move it evenly to the precompression chamber.
    • 17 knives on the BB9080 produce cut lengths down to 3.1 inches.
    • 23 knives on the BB9060 cut particles down to 1.5 inches.
  • HARDENED KNIVES IMPROVE DURABILITY

    Hardened knives are standard with the Rotor Cutter system and available as a dealer-installed option on the Packer Cutter BB9060 model. They extend the life of the knives in crops that are tough to cut and can increase the sharpening interval by up to three times. The knives on the Rotor Cutter are held in a drawer that slides out for easy inspection and sharpening
