A LEGACY OF INNOVATION
The Hayliner® name returns across all three models—fusing legendary, time-tested performance and reliability with new, precision technology to provide you with even greater bale uniformity and quality.
From the Power-Pivot joint that minimizes driveline wear and chatter to the Category 6 driveline, 248-pound direct-drive flywheel, and high-capacity hypoid gear drive gearbox, the Hayliner Series offers reliable power transfer for robust performance.
BIG CAPACITY FOR SMALL BALES
The durable rotary feeding system provides smooth and even crop flow, while the powerful plunger runs at 93 strokes per minute to handle big windrows at impressive speeds.
DRIVELINE ＆ PICKUP
GEARED UP TO GATHER CROP
Building perfect small square bales starts with reliable power transfer and a pickup that delivers a clean sweep. That’s exactly what the Hayliner® Series offers—a dependable, robust driveline fused with a wide, rugged pickup design that collects even the fine crop that others can leave behind.
To relieve driveline stress during sharp turns, the exclusive Power-Pivot joint minimizes driveline wear on universal joints and reduces noise. When turning beyond approximately 75 degrees, the Power-Pivot begins to breakaway—maintaining primary PTO driveline equal angles and reducing driveline chatter—without your intervention. When the turn is complete, the system is spring-reset to the normal working position.
CATEGORY 6 DRIVELINE
Unlike other balers with lighter-duty drivelines, for maximum capacity, you can push more power into a Hayliner in big windrows with the standard heavy-duty, three-joint, Category 6 driveline.
For smooth power transfer, a 248-pound flywheel dampens each plunger stroke. This direct-drive flywheel is driven with a multiplate slip clutch for gentle engagement, long life, and greater load capacity. To protect your tractor at shutdown, an overrunning clutch eliminates the risk of baling without the flywheel turning, which can occur on indirectly driven designs. Instead, the shear pin on the flywheel immediately cuts power to protect your tractor’s PTO.
MAIN GEARBOX AND PLUNGER DRIVE
The main gearbox delivers high-capacity and smooth, quiet operation. Fitted, tapered roller bearings and heat-treated alloy-steel gears are sealed in an oil bath for smooth, quiet operation. Its hypoid gear drive powers the baler and produces 93 plunger strokes per minute at full speed.
SUPER-WIDE SUPERSWEEP™ PICKUP
Perfect square bales start with the wide, reliable SuperSweep™ pickup. Curved teeth are made from high-carbon steel alloy with an exceptionally high tensile strength. The 2.6-inch tine spacing means you’ll collect the short, fine crop that other pickups can miss. For trouble-free baling, these pickups are protected against overloads with a belt drive that acts as a slip clutch. Plus, the “lost motion drive” capability means you can back up the baler over windrows without damaging the teeth. Above the tines, a floating windguard helps control the windrow and forms a smooth crop mat for positive feeding.
A LIFT IN PRODUCTIVITY
All pickups are easily raised and latched by hand for transport. However, for effortless raising and lowering to adjust for differing terrain and navigate around obstacles, hydraulic pickup lift is standard on the Hayliner 275 PLUS and optional on the other models.
A BIG APPETITE FOR SMALL BALES
The rotary feeding system is durable, reliable, easy to service, and simple to adjust. It provides smooth, even flow of crop through the baler to reduce leaf loss and produce uniform, high quality bales. Crop moves into the bale chamber with heavy-duty, paired, rotating tines and a feeder fork. The system is timed to keep material flowing evenly into the bale chamber by allowing the tines to overlap for smooth, continuous crop movement. The feeder floor below the tines is replaceable on all models for greater wear resistance, easier serviceability, and to protect your investment.
ADJUSTABLE PACKER FORK
A double packer fork folds crop into the bale case through a large, 283-square-inch opening. For optimum bale shape in different crop conditions, this packer fork can be adjusted on both ends in nine different positions.
For maximum capacity, a fast plunger speed of 93 strokes per minute with a 30-inch stroke lets you handle big windrows at impressive speeds. Even better, with the large feed opening, the plunger can run at lower speeds while still maintaining outstanding capacity. The plunger is guided down a high-strength plunger rail and runs on sealed ball bearings and a white-iron slide block for optimal bale shape, minimal maintenance, and fewer adjustments.
BALE CASE AND CHAMBER – HAYLINER® 265 AND HAYLINER® 275
The rugged bale chamber of the Hayliner® 265 and Hayliner 275 is designed to promote better bale formation. Six hay dogs hold charges in place to allow crop to be evenly distributed as it enters the chamber for compression, which leads to high-quality bales. Adjustable tension springs apply bale tension. Just a half-inch increase in spring tension equates to an increase of 600 pounds of force. Changing bale density is easy with the adjustable tension doors. You can also upgrade either model with two-way hydraformatic bale tension control. The hydraformatic system is self-contained and the flywheel gear-driven pump is positioned for easy adjustment and servicing.
BALE CASE AND CHAMBER – HAYLINER® 275 PLUS
To improve bale shape and length, the Hayliner 275 PLUS features a bale case that’s extended by 12 inches to hold the bale longer and provide extra density, which lets you make bales as heavy and dense as possible. Four-way hydraformatic tension is standard and with just the turn of the knob, tension is applied to all four sides of the bale. Hydraulically controlled side tension rails increase density and apply more consistent pressure throughout the entire bale. The Hayliner 275 PLUS is also outfitted with a hardened, high-strength steel plunger rail, 19% thicker bale chamber, and heavy-duty cast-iron hay wedges that replace the front sheet metal wedges for enhanced performance in straw compared to the Hayliner 265 and Hayliner 275.
