EVEN HIGHER BALE DENSITY
Bale chamber is extended by 31.5 inches or 31% for up to 10% higher bale density.
SOFTER BALE DROP
The longer bale chamber also means bales exit the bale chute closer to the ground for gentler bale drop and less concern about twine breakage.
A larger platform allows for easier cleaning of the sides of the baler.
THE RIGHT MODEL FOR YOU
With the choice of three bale sizes with available crop processing and tire/axle combinations for any terrain, you’ll find a model that’s ideal for your needs.
MAXISWEEP™ SPEED AND PERFORMANCE
The MaxiSweep™ pickup is designed to give you unsurpassed performance. Flare-to-flare width ranges from 77.5 inches on the BigBaler 230 Plus and 330 Plus Standard to 92.6 inches on the BigBaler 340 Plus CropCutter™ model.
“S”-SHAPED SIDE SHIELDING
This industry-exclusive design works to maintain crop flow into the augers. Material can even enter from the sides, especially important when picking up crop material at the edge of over-width windrows. The industry secret—top-undershot and bottom-overshot augers work in conjunction with the integrated crop flares to maintain constant, fast crop flows when negotiating curved windrows or slicing through overlapping end rows. Space between the end of the crop flare and outside tines is minimal to prevent crop from being missed.
STANDARD ROLLER WINDGUARD
The roller windguard is a standard feature. It rides the contour of the windrow on spring suspension to compress the windrow as it enters the pickup for increased throughput and better flow in extra-heavy windrows. Another standard feature is the full-width feed assist roller. Combined with the counter-rotating augers, it maintains constant and fast crop flow in the packer or rotor – a key component of continuous and high-capacity feeding.
FAST, SIMPLE ADJUSTMENTS
Adjusting pickup flotation is quick with no tools required. The spring-loaded suspension system maintains the pickup contact with the ground, even in rough, uneven terrain at high speeds. Spring-loaded gauge wheel adjustment means no tools required and nothing gets lost.
Longer and thicker pickup tines are more durable and effective. Strong 2-mm profiled pickup guards with welded tine bar supports, as well as stronger cam and cam bearings increase durability and pickup performance. Thick frame and side sheets increase rigidity—important when operating at higher speeds, driving over pivot tracks and uneven terrain.
OPTIONAL CASTERING GAUGE WHEEL
The factory-fitted castering gauge wheel option allows the pickup to follow the ground when following curvy windrows and during turn-rows. A heavy-duty turf tire option is available from the factory.
