The New Holland double-knotter system is proven reliable, delivering higher bale density, lower knotter strain and consistent knotting. A design that places twine closer to the edge of the bale than competitive brand bales improves stacking and appearance. Knotters are driven by fully enclosed gearboxes for a long working life.
Two twines fed to each knotter make a final knot for the completed bale and a starting knot for the next one. Four knotters on the three-foot-wide models and six knotters on the four-foot-wide models maintain bale integrity even with high-density bales.
FANS ENSURE CLEAR TYING
Keeping knotters clean makes them more efficient. Two fans on the BB9060 and three on the BB9080 provide a blast of air to keep the tying area clear of dust, chaff and twine tails that can cause miss ties. Additional shielding also improves airflow and fan efficiency.
NO STRAIN ON TWINE OR KNOTTERS
With the double-knotter system, there is virtually no strain on the twine and knotter components during bale formation, which allows for higher bale densities. With two twine feed positions, the twines no longer slide over the bale surface while the crop is being pushed through the bale chamber, and that extends knotter life and improves reliability of the process.
PLENTY OF TWINE STORAGE
Store up to 30 twine balls in the dustproof twine box on the side of the baler-enough to continuously make bales even on the longest work day.
