The first step in better baling is to pick more crop up off the ground, and the tines are the most crucial part of that process. That’s why we’ve engineered a completely new tine for the RB Series.
Improved crop throughput
Due to its compact design, the new pickup is positioned closer to the rotor. This ensures an improved crop flow to the bale chamber, giving you increased baling output, with well-shaped, more uniform bales every time.
Angled for cleaner pick-up
The angle of the tine has been adjusted to ensure the cleanest possible crop pickup under all crop and soil conditions.
When looking at the RB Series pickup, you’ll notice offset tines on the ends. This allows the pickup to continually and consistently feed the crop flow augers, giving you square, shouldered bales.
More tine bars
Due to the additional space created through the absence of a cam track, five tine bars are now fitted to the pickup. With the tines spaced just 2.5 inches apart, you get an even better and cleaner crop intake.
Sometimes peak loads can become time-killing blockages. With our unique HydroFlex Control™ (HFC) two-stage anti-blockage system, you can reduce and resolve blockages quickly and easily.
A flexible floor in the feed chamber
Hydroflex Control is situated under the rotor where the feed passage is at its narrowest. It allows the front part of the feed chamber floor to flex up and down via a rubber suspension unit. This flexing action will smooth out the crop flow.
A hydraulic solution from the cab
In the event of a blockage, the rear of the feed table floor can be lowered hydraulically from the operator’s seat. When lowering the feed floor, all knives are withdrawn, ensuring that the blockage has passed into the bale chamber without any crop wastage before the machine is re-engaged.
Making a perfect bale is only half the battle. You also need to preserve your bales until they’re needed. There’s a variety of methods for storing, preserving and feeding bales, but it all begins with a fast, secure and flexible wrapping system.
Improve feed quality
The Varionet system provides “edge to edge” or “over the edge” wrapping, for perfect bale coverage every time. This means your bales not only look great, but they’re also completely protected against bad weather and crop losses.
Easy loading saves time
The Easy Load System allows easier loading of the net roll. After loading, the new net roll is simply tipped backwards, lifted and locked into position. It makes the process simple, saving you time and effort.
