New Holland Roll-Belt variable chamber round balers

The New Holland Roll-Belt variable chamber round balers replace the BR7000 series and delivers capacity increases of up to 20% when compared to the previous BR7000 series.

Round -baler

Available in 1.5 and 1.8 metre maximum bale diameters, it will become the default choice for livestock operations together with hay, straw, and forage contractors. New Holland, a pioneer in round baling technology, has globally produced over 235,000 variable chamber round balers, testament to their unrivalled performance and popularity amongst the world’s farmers.

New and improved pick-up and feeder

The pick-up has been completely redesigned to boost capacity by up to 20 percent in silage. The standard heavy-duty, five solid tine bar pick-up with reinforced rubber tines, which are 10 percent stiffer laterally and last five times longer, will maintain pick-up performance in difficult, uneven and stony terrain.

The new feed assist roll transfers the crop from the pick-up to the rotor whilst simultaneously merging the flow of the crop to ensure that it matches the exact width of the bale chamber.

Customised feeding

To improve baling flexibility, owners can choose the SuperFeed standard rotor with New Holland’s renowned ‘W’ pattern fingers. The 455mm diameter rotor maintains high throughput of all crops. The CropCutter model delivers the densest bales, with 15 integrated knives which guarantee the ultimate in fine chopping performance.

Drop Floor technology

During tight baling windows, stopping to unblock clogged balers wastes valuable baling time. After extensive consultation with farmers, New Holland has introduced ‘Drop Floor’ functionality. Operated from the comfort of the cab, when large wedges of crop block the rotor, the floor is simply lowered to provide additional space in the feeding zone, and baling can continue.

Never ending super wide belts

The Roll-Belt baler features four 273mm wide belts which prevent costly losses as well as improving tracking performance. The increased belt stability ensures a large contact area with the crop to improve both reliability and bale formation. Constructed using ultra-modern endless belt technology, these belts are much stronger as there are no joints. This eliminates stretching for uniform bale formation. Furthermore, the belts’ texture has been engineered by design to assist cleaning and to prevent clogged belts for efficient bale formation.

Dual hydraulic density system

The addition of a second hydraulic density cylinder has increased bale density by up to 5% when compared to the BR7000. The system which has a density cylinder on either side of the chamber provides improved density control, which is ideal for all operations, as uniformly denser bales improve the fermentation profile for more nutritious crops and storability.

Improved net and twine wrapping flexibility and performance

All models are standard with net only wrapping while the choice of net and twine combination system to match their individual needs is also available. The twine placement system has been redesigned and now uses an improved centre pivot dual twine tube to maintain a consistent wrap pattern to maintain bale shape, even during extensive handling.

The duckbill net wrapping system is now closer to the actual bale, which means it takes even less time to provide full wrap coverage, thus enabling operations to get back baling even more quickly. Up to two rolls of additional net can be stored on CropCutter models, with a convenient storage area to the rear of the baler, and the second roll can be stored above the active roll. The industry-leading duckbill net wrapping system now only requires limited power from the in-cab connection, making connecting it to the tractor even simpler.
