With the introduction of the 0 Series Round Balers for the 2018 haying season, John Deere is offering its first North American-built round baler precutter and the industry’s first 5-foot precutter baler.

John Deere Square Baler

Making large square bales of high-quality hay will get much easier in 2018 with the introduction of the model L331 and L341 Large Square Balers from John Deere.

Both models feature several customer-requested enhancements, including a new MegaWide pickup with or without precutter, and numerous hay-making options that hay producers can select from to best fit their operations.

These two new large square balers, which will replace the previous L300 Series Large Square Balers introduced in 2015, are 100 percent John Deere designed and built from front to back, says Travis Roe, senior marketing representative for hay tools for John Deere. “They are a perfect fit for commercial hay producers, as well as larger dairy and beef producers, who demand more consistent bale densities with less crop loss, and who want to spend more time baling and less time clearing plugs and servicing the machine.”
