New Holland has enhanced its BB9000 Series large square balers stating that improvements will increase bale density by up to 5%. They say additional improvements include a new, narrow hitch for greater maneuverability, and oil-immersed gearboxes and automatic greasing for reduced service requirements and improved durability.
According to the company’s new product announcement, new engineering includes larger bale density cylinders on the BB9080; a new door balancer; longer, lower bale chamber floor; and improved top-fill of the bale. With the new knotter design, there is virtually no strain on the twine and knotter components during bale formation, allowing for higher bale density. Updated density software provides smoother feeding and better density control.
Their BB9000 Series offers a choice of three monitor systems to control the baler. Operators can control baler function by using their own tractor monitor (if ISOBUS 11782); the economical black & white InfoView II monitor, or the advanced, color IntelliView III touch-screen monitor. The IntelliView monitor provides convenient fingertip operation and can be linked to an optional rearview camera for improved visibility.
Optional CropCutter Packer Cutter and Rotor Cutter systems are available to produce silage bales. CropCutter cuts the crop into small pieces that are packed tightly into each high-capacity, high-density bale. These bales are denser, easier to feed, and easier for livestock to eat and digest.
Three CropCutter configurations are available: six knives on the BB9060 Packer Cutter; 33 knives on the BB9060 Rotor Cutter; and 17 knives on the BB9080 Rotor Cutter.
