PROFESSIONAL BALING FROM NEW HOLLAND.
New Holland has led the big baler segment for over 35 years, introducing a string of pioneering firsts that have revolutionize big baling throughout the world. The latest BigBaler Plus range introduces another baling first: Loop Master™ knotting technology. The second knot is now a loop style knot, producing:
• 37% stronger knot with a 26% improvement in tensile strength for reduced breakage
• Loop Master™ combines the key benefits of double and single knotting technology
• Eliminates the twine offcuts, which are currently left in the field, or can even find their way into fodder
• Over six kilometres or 46kg of twine are saved in a 10,000 bale season
Ultimate baling performance is guaranteed in all crops and all farms. Hay and forage operations, straw contractors, biomass business and large scale arable farmers will be won over by the Plus models which deliver consistent best-in-class bale quality from its proven and frequently improved design over the years.
- New Holland has a long and illustrious baling heritage which stretches right back to the very beginning of baling itself. Over more than seven decades of continuous evolution, countless innovations which have revolutionised baling efficiency, productivity and comfort have been introduced which today, make New Holland the worldwide leader in baling technology.
A HISTORY OF MODERN BALING BY NEW HOLLAND
The flagship BigBaler models are built in Zedelgem, Belgium, home to New Holland’s global Centre of Harvesting Excellence. It was here, over 100 years ago, that Leon Claeys built his very first threshing machine that revolutionised the way farmers harvested. Yet New Holland’s baling heritage spans both sides of the Atlantic, with New Holland developing the very first selftying pick-up baler in 1940. Today, 35 years after the first of thousands of large square balers rolled off the line, the big baler is still the world’s number one large square baler, and yellow blooded engineers are still committed to developing the next generation of baling products. The sophisticated product development process and the extensive knowledge of a dedicated workforce of a World Class Manufacturing facility ensure the BigBaler range, together with all flagship harvesting products, the CR, CX and FR ranges, continue to set the harvesting benchmark.
CLEARING FIELDS AT HIGH SPEEDThe pick-up is perhaps the most important part of your BigBaler. New Holland has completely redesigned the MaxiSweep™ pickup for unbeatable collecting performance. Now available with 5 tine bars for 1270 and 1290 CropCutter™ models for increased performance and durability, this configuration offers a 25% increase in double tines vs previous models. Two different widths are available, the ultra-wide 2.35m is perfect for the widest straw swaths from todays’ high capacity combines, and the standard 1.96m width is the ideal choice for silage operations. The heavy-duty 5.5mm coil tines on CropCutter™ models have been designed to increase durability when working on the roughest, stoniest ground.
FLEXIBLE CROP PROCESSING SOLUTIONS
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 Packer 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. When baling in extremely abrasive conditions, the new heavy duty rotor has been developed, ideal when baling tough crops. The rotor has an abrasive finish, which can extend its life by up to four times.
PERFECTLY FORMED, DENSE BALES AS STANDARDDensity is king when it comes to producing big bales. Whether they are straw bales with an improved combustion profile for biomass operations, tightly packed silage bales with enhanced fermentation characteristics or simply bales that take up less space for easier storage or transport, density is at the heart of big baling excellence. The next generation best-in-class SmartFill™ II bale direction sensing system now has even greater accuracy to ensure the operator feeds the crop in an even manner, and the strong, reinforced monocoque frame, machined from reinforced steel, guarantees durability, season after season.
RELIABLE DOUBLE KNOTTING. GENTLE BALE HANDLING.
Pioneering double knot technology for over 35 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. And the new big baler range introduces another baling first: Loop Master™ knotting technology. The second knot is now a loop style knot, producing a 37% stronger knot with a 26% improvement in tensile strength for reduced breakage, but, perhaps even more importantly it eliminates the twine offcuts, which are currently left in the field, or can even find their way into fodder. It might not sound much, but consider that over six kilometres or 46kg of twine are saved in a 10,000 bale season. Knotting technology has been tailored to the BigBaler’s dimensions, with four knots on the BigBaler 870 Plus and 890 Plus models or six knots per bale on the BigBaler 1270 Plus and 1290 Plus variants. 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.
FINGERTIP BALER MANAGEMENT
Managing your BigBaler has never been simpler, as the new state-of-the-art user interface makes managing your baler even easier. All key operating parameters can be controlled whilst on the move via the IntelliView™ IV colour touchscreen monitor which comes as standard. Furthermore, the BigBaler is fully ISOBUS compatible with full AEF ISOBUS certification, for seamless SideWinder™ II armrest integration, so one-monitor operation is guaranteed.
INTELLICRUISE™ SYSTEM. OPTIMISED CAPACITY. ULTIMATE UNIFORMITY.
The IntelliCruise™ feature controls the tractor’s forward speed through ISOBUS Class III technology, increasing productivity, improving operator comfort, improving fuel savings and optimising feeding rate in varying field and crop conditions. This system IntelliCruise has two running modes.
• IntelliCruise™ technology enables
• Up to 9% more throughput
• Up to 4% fuel savings
• Reduced operator fatigue
Charge Control mode
• In Charge Control mode, available on CropCutter™ models only, the tractor speed is adapted to achieve optimum capacity by using sensor paddles which measure both the throughput of crop fed into the stuffer feeder channel, as well as the time to fill it to ensure the optimum tractor speed is maintained
Slice Control mode
• In Slice Control mode, available on both the Packer and CropCutter models, the tractor’s speed is adjusted according to bale slice thickness and the system will strive to obtain the exact amount of slices defined by the operator
INTEGRATED YIELD AND MOISTURE SENSING
The BigBaler range of balers have been engineered by design with precision farming features. Bale weight and moisture information is continually updated and displayed on the IntelliView™ IV monitor. This data can be stored, downloaded and analysed with MyPLM®Connect Telematics precision farming software to establish accurate yields maps. These can be used to fine tune inputs to maximise yields and minimise input costs.
FLOATING ACROSS THE FIELD, FLYING DOWN THE ROADBigBalers will work in a variety of different environments, from the largest arable operations where reducing soil compaction is of prime importance, to small fields and winding country lanes that mean hassle-free transport is a must. The range boasts a wide variety of axles and tyre options which all comply with the three metre transport width restriction to suit every operation. Furthermore, turn on a sixpence manoeuvrability to complete the package.
TRUE DAY AND NIGHT VISIBILITYA 360° lighting package, available with an LED option on all Plus models, has been developed to turn night into day, and to maintain productivity and ease of operation even in the dead of night.
360°: BIGBALERThe new BigBaler has been designed for easy daily maintenance. All service points can only be access when the baler is completely stationary for industry-leading maintenance safety. Best-in-class access means these balers will spend more time in the field. The entire baler has been engineered by design for full compliance with all safety directives.
THE ERA OF INTELLIGENT BALERS• SmartFill™ II upgrades the already class-leading bale direction sensor system, which ensures that every bale is perfectly uniform
• Sensors are directly connected to the plunger, which measures with a high degree of precision, the load on the plunger. This is then translated into perfect left/right driving direction indication
• If one-sided crop entry is detected, the operator is informed via the IntelliView™ monitor to drive either more to the right or to the left of the swath, to maintain smooth feeding
• This system improves automated density as well as leading to more stable bale weights in a variety of conditions
