"We’ve also added silage-special balers to the Class III and Class IV baler lineup, giving customers options for larger bale sizes in silage, especially new 5'×6' bales," Cobb says. "For the 469, 559 and 569, we’ve made them faster and more durable, with faster gate cycles, heavier chains, and larger, stronger shafts, bearings and pickups. In addition, we’ve added adjustable tongues, extended lube drivelines and larger tire options for the 459 and 559 balers."
 
The new premium balers are also built with stronger chains, larger shafts and bearings, and more robust pickups. They feature newly designed gull-wing doors for ease of service and adjustments. ISOBus electronics ensure responsive baler/tractor operation, including GreenStar 3 integration and monitoring and control with 1800, 2600, 2630, and CommandCenter displays. This new ISOBus system enables an industry-exclusive Tractor Baler Automation to make baling easier and allow customers to cover more acres in less time.
 
"In the field, customers will appreciate the additional strength and reliability of the new 9 Series Round Balers, no matter which model they use," Cobb adds. "They’ll have more optional features to choose from to customize their baler to the type of crop they have and the size of bale they want to handle. As a result, we’ve made it easier for customers to produce tight, uniformly sized and shaped bales faster than ever before."
