Round baler for tough conditions
Claas recently introduced the new fixed-chamber Rollant 540 RC Pro round baler, which features a stronger chassis and newly designed heavy-duty rollers with a 4-millimeter wall thickness and shafts bolted to 15-mm-thick flanges to improve strength and durability when handling challenging crops or commercial silage baling. Available with the Pro lowerable drop floor for quick blockage removal and adjustable bale density pressure, the round baler also is available with net, twine or both.

The new Goweil Kombi bale wrapper allows a producer to wrap bales on the go. “You can take a 4-by-5 or 4-by-6 round bale, drop in a modular frame and it becomes a round bale wrapper,” says Curt Hoffman, crop packaging marketing manager. The Kombi doubles as an accumulator. It will hold one round bale while the next one is being made. The wrapper holds 10 rolls of film and can be operated in high or low speed. There is also a camera mounted in the back. Price ranges from $99,600 to $125,000. Find your nearest New Holland dealer online.
