Features

High Capacity Baling

  • The Overshot feeder provides smooth and consistent crop flow from the pick up into the bale chamber resulting in higher capacity
  • The 5 bar pick up combined with a roller windguard provides a clean sweep of crop and uninterrupted feeding of material into the baler.
  • Large pick up width allows you to pick up wider, fuller windrows to maximize your productivity in every pass
  • Low-profile design lets the pickup float over ground contours, gently gathering crop and saving nutrient-packed leaves

 

Durable Performance

  • The heavy-duty pickup features stronger, more durable components to increase the wear life of the pick up
  • The "premium laced" and "endless" belt are designed with higher tensile strength for improved durability and better belt tracking
  • Redesigned net wrap system has an independent up-cut knife system to create less stress on components which results in a more reliable wrapping system
  • The cut out clutch comes with more torque than previous versions

 

Simple, Easy to Operate

  • Easy to use monitoring system that can be installed or removed quickly
  • ISOBUS Monitoring system with AFS PRO 300 or PRO 700 Control Center
  • Large swing open doors provide easy access to key components and service points
  • Adjustments can be made quickly and easily with options such as "no tools required gauge wheel settings"
  • Front-loading net wrap for efficient loading and positive feeding on bale


Simplified System: Net Wrap Electrical System and Twine Delivery System

New net wrap system and twine delivery improvements provide improved reliability with fewer adjustments.

Net Wrap Electrical System

  • Enhanced H-bridge and ICM controller
  • Separate motor for net knife and duckbill reducing current draw in system
  • Front loading net wrap for efficient net loading and positive feeding on bale
  • Fewer adjustments for simplicity and better performance

 

Twine Delivery System

  • Enhanced single pivot, dual twine arm system
  • Positive twine starts due to twine arm sweeping across the full face of bale from left to right and back rather than staring in center
  • Twine tails reduced to left side only
  • Twine end wrap position adjustable from monitor
  • Consistent twine spacing across entire width of bale


Style with a Purpose

  • Plastic side shields with full access to side of baler when panels are raised and additional grease banks for ease of servicing
  • Steel front shield
  • Case IH family colors, black frame/red shields


Configuration Options:

  • Choice of 540 rpm or 1000 rpm gearbox on all models
  • Cut-out clutch on 5x6 Premium models
  • Better, long-term durability than friction plate clutch
  • Can achieve higher bale density


Designed To Pick Up Crop Quickly And Efficiently

Overshot Feeder / In-Feed Auger

  • Overshot feeder replaces the current stuffer feeder pickup for improved feeding capacity
  • In-feed augers are in line with rotor handles providing better crop pickup for heavy windrows and significantly reduces auger plugging
  • 2.0m pickup available on 5x6 units
  • Reel options: 4-bar with steel tines or 5-bar with rubber tines
  • Large diameter in-feed augers reduce incidence of crop jamming augers
  • 5-bar reel with rubber tines standard

 

Tines

  • Enhanced design rubber tine
  • Stronger rubber base with lateral reinforcements
  • 5x more life than previous rubber tine
  • 100% stiffer than coil tine on 4 bar pick up
  • Heavy Duty Reel Components: Reel Tube - 23% larger in diameter, double spider plates, drive shafts are 10% larger, solid tine bars, heavier reel drive chain

 

Additional Pickup Options

  • ​Adjustable no-tool gauge wheels
  • Castoring gauge wheels
  • Pickup frame mounted gathering wheels​


Belt Options: Provide Better Belt Tracking And Increased Durability

Premium Laced Belts

  • MATO premium laced belts have cold rolled loops making them more durable and longer lasting.​

 

Endless Belts

  • Enhanced surface patterns
  • Higher specifications for tear and puncture resistance = longer belt life
  • True endless belt construction, no seam
  • Sealed edges prevents fraying


In Cab Control

Deluxe Monitor with Keypad

  • Compact Design
  • Black and white display
  • Larger screen area than current monitor
  • Menu screen navigation
  • User friendly icons
  • 20 customer bale count storage

 

AFS Pro 300 Monitor for ISOBUS Option

  • Color touch screen
  • ISOBUS can also be ordered less monitor, will work with any size or brand virtual terminal that is ISOBUS compatible
  • Pictured above is the optional factory-installed AFS PRO 300 which features touch screen controls with better graphics and easier navigation and provides connectivity with any ISOBUS compliant tractor.

 

Tractor and Baler Automation

This system controls the tractor stop, bale wrap and bale eject functions without any operator input required. Hooked up to a Puma or Maxxum CVT tractor, operators can take advantage of ISOBUS Class 3 controls to automatically stop the tractor when the target bale size is reached. From there, net wrap is automatically applied and, when the wrap cycle is complete, the baler tailgate raises and lowers automatically to eject each wrapped bale. Once the completed bale is ejected, the operator can simply move the tractor shuttle lever to the forward position and go.


RB4 Series Round Balers

Pick Ups: Cover More Ground

RB 4 Series round baler pickups are substantially wider than the bale chamber which allows them to pick up the widest windrows and pack more crop into the sides of the chamber for firm bales.

  • More tines grab more hay (72 tines on the RB444 and the RB455A)
  • The low-profile design allows the pickup to float over ground contours
  • The pickup’s forward location allows you to view windrows feeding and crop flowing evenly into the bale chamber
  • Long, large diameter augers on wide pickups ensure smooth crop flow
  • Pickups are protected from overload with a slip or ratchet clutch​

 

Dense and Uniform Bales

RB 4 Series round balers use the combined action of low-profile, chevron-patterned belts and sturdy all-steel rolls to form dense, uniform bales.

  • Endless three-ply chevron belts eliminate lacing maintenance
  • The adjustable hydraulic belt tensioning system puts density control at your fingertips (N/A on RB444), and the front pressure gauge allows density monitoring

 

The floor roll starts the bale formation process by moving the crop from the pickup to the belts and into the core cavity.

  • The powered floor roll carries a large portion of bale weight inside the chamber, reducing belt stress
  • The forming rolls help curl the crop and quickly starts an edible core
  • The variable bale chamber allows you to customize bale diameter

 

Consistent Twine Placement

  • The electronic-controlled twine wrap system ensures consistent twine placement, automatically starts the twine wrapping process, and has a full-bale alarm to alert you to stop forward motion and an in-cab monitor to alert you when the tying cycle is complete
  • An optional electronic-controlled twine/mesh wrap system is available with the press of a button on RB454 Silage, RB454 Rotor Cutter Silage, RB464 and RB564
  • The RB444 tying system features a fast, electric, single-arm twine system that applies two strands of twine at once, an adjustable twine guide and full-bale light that alerts you when it’s time to activate the twine arm

 

Controls at the Touch of a Finger

  • Make bale size adjustments on the go
  • Tying and wrapping controls allow for the adjustment of tying/wrapping patterns
  • The tailgate latch indicator alerts you when to start baling after a bale is ejected
  • The electronic bale counter provides daily and total bale counts
  • Bale-shape indicator
