New Holland Roll-Belt Round Balers
New Holland’s new roll-belt, variable chamber round balers deliver up to 20% capacity increases when compared to their predecessors, the BR7000 series. The introduction coincides with New Holland’s 40th anniversary of producing round balers.
“As New Holland celebrates its 40th anniversary of round baler technology, we continue our dedication to providing innovations and improvements in this next generation of Roll-Belt balers,” says Michael Cornman, New Holland.
Available in 4-foot and 5-foot bale widths, you can customize the baler to fit your needs. “The standard rotor SuperFeed and professional CropCutter variants enable tailored baling,” says Bob Hatz, New Holland. “The all new pickup, repositioned back wrap roll, and endless belt design will deliver significant productivity gains.”
New pickups and feeders
The ActiveSweep, SuperFeed, and CropCutter pickups have been redesigned to boost capacity by up to 20%. The standard-duty four-tine bar pickup, available on the ActiveSweep, has 23% larger diameter and 80% thicker walled tubular tine bars as well as a 10% larger center hex shaft.
The heavy-duty five-tine bar pickup, standard on SuperFeed and CropCutter, optional on ActiveSweep, establishes a new level of durability with solid steel, split center tine bars. With the split center tine bars you only have to replace half of the tine bar if something breaks, instead of the entire bar, reducing maintenance and costs. Complete with 6mm reinforced rubber tines, which are 10% stiffer laterally and last five times longer, the pickup maintains peak performance in difficult, uneven windrows.
The new optional feed assist roll transfers the crop from the pickup to the rotor while merging the flow of the crop to ensure that it matches the exact width of the bale chamber.
Higher capacity rotary feeding
To improve baling flexibility, you can choose between the CropCutter and the SuperFeed standard rotors. The SuperFeed’s 18-inch rotor maintains high throughput of all crops with New Holland’s “W” pattern single lobed fingers. The CropCutter variant delivers the densest bales with 15 integrated knives.
Clear blockages quickly
During tight baling windows, stopping to unblock clogged balers wastes valuable time. After receiving feedback from customers, New Holland is introducing DropFloor functionality to keep you in the cab and baling. When large wedges of crop block the rotor, the floor is simply lowered from the cab to provide additional space in the feeding zone and baling continues.
The Roll-Belt baler features four 7-inch wide belts that prevent costly losses as well as improve tracking performance. The increased belt stability ensures a large contact area with the crop to improve reliability and bale formation. Constructed using endless belt technology, these belts are much stronger because there are no joints. This eliminates stretching for uniform bale formation. In addition, the belts are designed to be self-cleaning. Horizontal grooves on the belt drop sand or dirt before it mixes with the bale and the grooves make the bales tighter.
