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 self-tying pick-up baler in 1940. And the rest, as they say, is history. Today, 25 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 that the BigBaler range, together with all flagship harvesting products - the CR, CX8000 and FR9000 ranges, continue to set the harvesting benchmark.
