Custom hay operators and large hay producers can add higher baling capacity with Krone North America’s three new Generation 5 BiG Pack large square balers.
This latest generation of large square balers from Krone come with several new features and benefits, such as improved Variable Fill System (VFS) which the company says allows for easier adjustments and maintenance.
Some of the other features of the new generation of the large square baler models include:
- New bale chamber design builds more uniform, higher density bales, through hydraulic pressure on the top and sides of the bale chamber
- New plunger helps build a better-shaped bale while reducing wear
- A longer bale channel creates higher bale densities
The balers also feature a new belt-driven cutter system for higher output and easier removal of blockages, all from the cab. The cutter bar has variable blade choices and settings, and are easy to change out.
Ryan Hatfield, product manager for Krone North America, says large hay producers and customer operators are very demanding when it comes to their balers, and he thinks the new generation will meet those demands.
“We’ve had several operators run these new Generation 5 BiG Pack balers this past year, and they are very pleased. The new Variable Fill System is designed to deliver superior reliability, while the improved bale chamber creates more uniform higher-density bales. That’s what customers need,” he says.
