New Holland BigBaler 340 High Density



BigBaler 340 High Density balers can deliver up to 22% higher-density bales than other conventional large square balers, and up to 15% more when compared to BigBaler 340 PLUS models.

Exclusive SmartShift™ gearbox features two-speed start-up technology for smooth baler engagement while protecting the tractor’s driveline.

Provides excellent ground following ability and superior accessibility underneath the baler.

Patented Loop Master™ knotter system increases overall bale tensile strength up to 26% for lower operating costs while eliminating twine offcuts.
