John Deere Baler B-Wrap

John Deere 469 Premium and 569 Premium Round Balers can now apply B-Wrap, the alternative to indoor storage.

“The Premium Round Balers are designed for customers who make thousands of bales each year,” says Louis Fernandez, senior marketing representative for John Deere Ottumwa Works. “These Premium Balers are not only designed with stronger chains, larger shafts and bearings, and more robust pickups, they also feature Tractor Baler Automation (TBA). And, with TBA, the baler can electronically communicate with newer John Deere tractors to help speed baling and prevent many typical operator errors.”

2015 John Deere Large Square Baler

John Deere has introduced two new L Series Square Balers, the L330 and the L340. These large balers are designed to maximize performance, increase uptime, and lower the overall cost of operation for commercial hay equipment owners and operators.

“We’ve been working for years to develop a large square baler that will meet the tough demands of our commercial hay customers,” says Jeremy Unruh, product line manager, Ottumwa Works. “And now we’re very pleased to launch the new L Series Square Balers with High-Capacity Rotor to offer more efficiency, capacity, and performance to commercial hay producers in the U.S. and Canada.”

 Hesston 2900 Series Round Baler

Hesston by Massey Ferguson has introduced its new 2900 Series round baler. This high-capacity baler is designed to feed faster and more smoothly, achieving dense, uniform big round bales regardless of the crop or crop conditions.

“The Hesston 2900 Series features design enhancements that keep pace with the productivity needs of our largest hay and livestock-feeding customers,” says Dean Morrell, product marketing manager for hay and forage equipment. “The Hesston legacy of innovation and commitment to quality is evident in the detailed engineering and rigorous testing that this Series has undergone.”

Hesston 2200 Series Square Baler

Hesston by Massey Ferguson introduced the 2200 Series large square baler at the 2013 Farm Progress show in Decatur, Ill. According to Hesston, new features engineered into the 2200 Series help custom harvesters and producers bale a wider variety of crops, particularly crop residue, under a broad range of conditions.

“With increasing crop yields, the need to bale excess residue like straw and corn stalks is really driving demand for balers such as the 2200 Series. Baling is a management solution that gets excess residue off the field to help ensure top yields the following year,” says Dean Morrell, product marketing manager for hay and forage. “The growing biomass fuels industry also requires a durable, reliable machine with the capability to handle a wide range of crops, often in less-than-perfect conditions. The 2200 Series has this type of capacity.”
