HOW IT WORKS
1 – To deliver fast, consistent core starts and support the bale as it grows, the floor roll moves crop from the feeding system up into the chamber. This roll carries most of the bale’s weight to reduce stress on the belts and lacings for longer life and lower maintenance costs. From here, belts carry crop up into the sledge frame rollers.
2 – The core begins when the stripper roll turns the hay downwards, moving it into a D-shaped core in the chamber. To allow for full-diameter bales, the completed core rotates this roll forward.
3 – The pivot roll acts as the pivot for the stripper roll above and its dimpled surface helps move crop to the fixed roll below. The gap between the pivot roll and the fixed roll allows net wrap to be applied from the front of the baler.
4 – The fixed roll has slats to keep the hay rolling, turning it back towards the belts to complete the core.
5 – The starter roll below the fixed roll supports the core in the chamber. Its smooth surface eliminates interference as crop is turned towards the belts.
6 – To maintain belt pressure as the bale grows, the take-up arm assembly moves to expand the chamber.
