The Seeds of Life

Farmers feed the planet. The seeds they plant today will be the food we eat tomorrow. See how they face whatever comes their way. New Holland Tractors help them in that same challenge, in countries very far and different from each other. 

In 2012 New Holland launched the new generation BigBaler range which has set a new benchmark in the professional baling segment. Up to 20% capacity increases and up to 5% denser bales will significantly improve your productivity and profitability. Cutting edge features such as the all-new MaxiSweep pick-up and enhanced pre-compression chamber crop flow monitoring have been combined with renowned industry firsts including advanced CropID systems and proven features in the form of Double Knot technology to offer professional hay and forage operations, straw contractors and large scale arable farmers unsurpassed baling performance.

The four model range produces bales from 80x70cm to 120x90cm. Crop-to-crop flexibility has been engineered by design, and the it guarantees performance in conventional crops, as well as in non-traditional crops such as sugar cane and maize stover, perfect for the burgeoning biomass sector.

"Today's BigBaler range is the culmination of over 25 years of baling excellence, and represents the flagship baler in our extensive baler offering" Stated Bob Hatz, Hay&Forage and Crop Production Product Management. "The BigBaler is built at our Centre of Harvesting Excellence in Zedelgem, Belgium, and has been engineered by design to meet the stringent quality, productivity and reliability requirements of modern baling businesses. Over 200,000 bales, equivalent to ten seasons' output,  were produced before even the first production BigBaler rolled off the line." He concluded.

The MaxiSweep pick-up has been completely redesigned to ensure that every last blade of profitable crop is safely baled. Tine strength has been significantly improved on CropCutter models with the adoption of 6mm coil tines as standard for increased durability when working in rough terrain and in stony fields.

The addition of a roller wind guard ensures smooth crop flow from the swath to the baler and it prevents crop flow disturbance for uniform bale production. Swath transfer has been further enhanced by the sculpted pick-up side shields. Their distinctive 'S' shape design draws all crops in, even when negotiating tight corners and smoothly feeds snagged crop into the pick-up. The pick-up edge now features crop guides to assist the final tine in collecting every blade of crop.

The new feed assist roll is situated behind the roller wind guard and features a system of two overshot and one undershot counter rotating augers that transfer the crop from the pick-up to the rotor or packer feeder, depending on the model, whilst simultaneously merging the flow of the crop to ensure that it matches the exact width of the feeder. The feed assist roller then positively directs the condensed crop flow into the feeder for increased, constant feeding.

Variety of crop processing options for tailored crop management

The BigBaler offers three crop processing systems.The Standard Packer features two packer forks with six single tines each for 870 and 890 models, and three packer forks with nine single tines each for 1270 and 1290 models. This traditional technology directly feeds the crop into the pre-compression chamber for long, unbroken straw or hay, perfect for equine businesses.

The Packer Cutter variant, available on BigBaler 870 and 890 models,has three, six double-tine packer forks with six removable knives. This option offers the ultimate in crop processing flexibility, and enables contractors to tailor bale production to individual customer requirements.

The densest bales, perfect for the biomass sector, are produced by CropCutter models. The 'W' pattern rotor is specifically designed for each baler and offers a configurable chop length. It also features a removable knife drawer for easy maintenance and offers tailored knife configurations. The BigBaler 870 and 890 models can be specified with either nine knives in medium cut, or 19 knives in short cut guise, and the BigBaler1270 and 1290 come with 15 or 29 knives respectively. These knives can be individually regulated to fine tune the chop length: medium cut chops to approximately 8 cm, which is ideal for chopped bedding straw for cattle sheds, whereas the short cut option shreds crop to a mere 4 cm in length. This is perfect for silage or straw for chicken sheds, as well as for biomass operations.
