Pro-Belt™ Series round balers deliver maximum dependability and performance to enhance the productivity of professional haymakers and contractors.
SUPERFEED™ OR CROPCUTTER® FEEDING SYSTEMS
Impressive crop throughput is the result of a large, 20.5-inch diameter rotor. For ultimate bale density, choose between a 13 knife or 25 knife CropCutter version.
Heavy-duty components, like the smooth TwinDrive™ gearbox, thick steel frame, and simple chamber design lead to ideal bale density and commercial-grade longevity.
PRECISION TOOLS THAT IMPROVE PERFORMANCE
Precision solutions, like IntelliBale™ baler automation, in-cab density control, and factory-installed moisture sensing help you work smarter and produce better bales.
GEARED UP TO GATHER CROP
Professional-grade baling requires a robust driveline and pickup. For Pro-Belt™ balers, that starts with the strong TwinDrive™ gearbox, which evenly distributes PTO power to both sides of the baler for smooth operation and ultimate reliability. Along with a premium oil-filled cut-out clutch and heavy-duty drives with high-quality chains, commercial-grade performance comes standard.
ALL POWER, NO HASSLE
To push through crop and avoid plugs, the premium oil-filled cut-out clutch can maintain over 1,000-foot pounds of force. When it’s needed, power is immediately cut out to protect the drive. Unlike a friction slip clutch that can heat up and lose torque, this clutch remains cool during operation while delivering constant torque. To resume, simply idle the tractor down and the clutch will re-engage.
TOUGH TWINDRIVE™ GEARBOX
For smooth operation and greater reliability, the TwinDrive gearbox directs PTO power to both sides of the baler without transferring it through the driven rollers. The left side powers the main belt, fixed roll drive chain, and floor roll drive chain, while the right side delivers power to the starter roll drive chain and rotary feeding system drive chain.
Pro-Belt balers feature big, heavy-duty bearings, sprockets, and drive rolls to provide maximum durability. Using only four, heavy-duty Diamond-brand driving chains, power is delivered more efficiently while enhancing durability. The right side of the baler has #100 chain powering the starter roll drive and #100H chain driving the undershot rotor. On the left side, #100H chain drives the main belt and fixed roll, while #80 chain is found on the floor roll.
EFFICIENT MAXISWEEP™ PICKUP
A baler with a big appetite is nothing without a pickup and feeding system that can keep it full. The path to perfect, square-shouldered bales starts with the heavy-duty MaxiSweep pickup. The reliable twin-cam drive, 160 tines, and five-bar reel deliver a clean sweep, high capacity, and the strength to handle big windrows at a fast pace. To improve visibility and crop flow, the pickup mounting angle is moved forward slightly and the roller and tine windguard is fully adjustable.
ROLL WITHOUT THE BUNCHES
Big windrows are no match for the heavy, all-steel windguard. This adjustable windguard uses its weight and crop-driven rotation to effortlessly compress crop, which means less bunching and smooth, even crop flow over the entire pickup.
AUGERS THAT DELIVER MAXIMUM THROUGHPUT
Delivering maximum throughput means that crop needs to move quickly from the ends of the pickup. The pickup is outfitted with eight-inch overshot, in-feed stub augers that turn over three-and-a-half times faster than the pickup reel. Unlike integral or in-line designs, these augers are positioned to deliver crop ahead of the feeding system to help ensure uninterrupted crop flow. Augers are finished with a hardened wear strip to increase wear resistance and reduce scraper adjustments.
LINKED TO MORE BENEFITS
To maximize performance and uptime, the pickup is driven by number 80H Diamond chain. Its exceptional resistance to wear and stretch is delivered by hard chrome pins and extra thick heavy-duty side plates. Further adding to the pickup and drive reliability, protection is provided by a maintenance free radial pin clutch. A maintenance-free radial pin clutch further increases pickup and drive reliability.
FROM FIELD MODE TO ROAD IN A FLASH
The standard hydraulic pickup lift and dual no-tools gauge wheels let you go from field mode to the road and back in a flash. Convenient, no-tools gauge wheels are standard, but no-tools castering gauge wheels can also be equipped to assist with tight turning on headlands and eliminate scuffing.
FEEDING AND CUTTING EXCELLENCE
For greater capacity, the SuperFeed™ rotary feeding system and CropCutter® rotary feeding and cutting system both feature a large, 20.5-inch diameter feeder that’s both 14% larger and double the weight of equivalent Roll-Belt™ models. These rotors offer smooth, “V”-shaped feeding to ensure that crop is directly power-fed across the full width of the chamber to provide excellent feeding and cutting for a baler with a big appetite.
SUPERFEED™ ROTARY FEEDING SYSTEM
If you need the power to feed difficult crops, but don’t need the ability to cut, or want bales packed with long, unbroken crop, then the SuperFeed rotary feeding system is the perfect choice for you. This system has single-point feeder tines, but no knives in the floor. To resist wear, the lobes are made from heat-treated steel. Compared to conventional overshot feeding systems that kick crop into the chamber, this rotor pulls crop underneath it, then power-feeds it directly into the chamber. This positive feeding shines in bulky crops like straw and cornstalks, yet still handles dry hay and silage crops with ease.
CROPCUTTER® ROTARY FEEDING AND CUTTING SYSTEM
If you’re looking for the ultimate way of making dense bales, bales that easily break apart during bedding or in a Total Mixed Ration (TMR) to reduce ration mixing times and improve feed efficiency, or a mix of all the above, then look no further than the CropCutter rotary feeding and cutting system.
Two CropCutter versions are available: a single knife bank with 13 knives that cuts crop as short as three inches, or a twin-knife bank, 25-knife version that can cut crop just under 1.7 inches. The 25-knife configuration reduces knife sharpening downtime in abrasive crops because it provides the flexibility to extend fresh, sharp knives on one bank and retract dull ones on the other. Rotors are made of tough, abrasion-resistant AR steel to resist wear.
To deliver a consistent cut, knives can be hydraulically extended or retracted. When extended, an accumulator ensures that knives stay engaged and protected. The 25-knife version has independent knife bank protection to provide exceptional cut quality. When cutting is not required, or a longer cut length is desired, knife blanks are also included. For longer materials, simply remove individual knives and install the conveniently stowed blanks in their place. To ensure maximum capacity, knife pressure is actively monitored and displayed. If working pressure gets too extreme, you’ll be alerted on the display.
AUTOMATIC ACTIVEDROP™ FLOOR SYSTEM
Commercial productivity means you push your equipment harder and faster to get jobs done, and Pro-Belt™ balers make no exception with the standard automatic ActiveDrop™ floor system. When you’re pushing hard, the forward dampers provide up to .39 inches (10 millimeters) of flex. However, if the load becomes too significant on the rotor, the system will automatically drop the floor to clear potential plugs, giving you continuous baling without the need to stop. The floor’s position is actively monitored, and you’ll be alerted to slow your ground speed when difficult conditions persist.
PERFORMANCE TO THE CORE
The Pro-Belt™ bale chamber is a simple design with few moving parts, which means maximum durability, less maintenance, and greater productivity. Only two fixed bale formation rollers are required to provide aggressive rolling action inside the chamber. When combined with the four, 11-inch-wide, steeply angled premium endless belts, tight cores are quickly and easily formed, leading to dense bales time and time again.
BIG BELTS FOR BIG PERFORMANCE
Four extra-wide, 11-inch premium endless belts deliver ultimate performance, durability, and low maintenance. These belts feature three-ply construction, sealed edges to resist fraying, and a high degree of crosswise stiffness to resist flipping. Textured on both sides, the belts can run on either surface. For your peace of mind, they’re backed by a three-year, 15,000 bale warranty.
DUAL DRIVEN BELT ROLLS
Belts are driven with two belt rolls for double the driving power and performance, while the large diameter drive rolls provide more belt and roll contact area for positive driving in any condition. Individually-driven sprockets are 44% larger than their equivalent Roll-Belt™ counterpart, transmitting more torque with less chain tension. For extra reliability, #100H Diamond®-brand chain is used to power the main drive because of its exceptional resistance to both wear and stretching.
CLEAN BELTS YIELD PERFORMANCE
Reliable performance in difficult conditions means keeping the area behind the belts clean. That’s why both the follower roll and the tailgate nose roll are paired with spiral stripper rolls that extend beyond the width of the chamber to expel crop buildup, reduce belt stress, and improve efficiency.
RAISING YOUR STANDARDS WITH FAST TAILGATE CYCLE TIMES
Fast tailgate cycle times keep you productive. For extra strength and durability, solid pivot blocks are incorporated in the tailgate’s construction. The tailgate cylinder is cushioned – it opens at full speed, then slows down when it’s close to full extension to eliminate sudden hard shocks.
