Case IH launches heavy duty flexible round balers for the busiest users

Case IH has topped its range of variable chamber round balers with the new RB HD Pro. Designed for larger livestock farmers and contractors, the new machine produces higher density bales in a wide range of crops, from wet silage to dry straw. For top reliability and throughput, it has been fitted with heavy duty components and fewer moving parts.

“To do this, we have strengthened and enlarged the rolls, shafts and tailgate and introduced a more powerful gearbox and driveline – which also increases the numbers of bales per hour. In some places we have simplified things to help reliability and maintenance, for example reducing the number of driveline chains and sledge rolls.”

The new balers come in two bale size options: the RB456 HD Pro makes 120cm-wide bales from 90cm to 165cm in diameter while the RB466 HD Pro’s are also 120cm wide but from 90cm up to 190cm in diameter. Each size comes with three rotor options: a feeding rotor, 13 cutter knives or 25 cutter knives, making six models in all.
