Rural Group offers New Holland’s newest baler

By Rodney Woods

New Holland Agriculture has raised the bar on productivity and comfort, after releasing a new baler which it says is the most efficient large square baler in its segment.

New Holland brand president Carlo Lambro said the new BigBaler 1290 High Density was built at the company's Centre of Harvesting Excellence in Belgium.

“The new model is the culmination of more than 30 years of baling excellence,” he said.

“It enriches New Holland's hay and forage offering, and once again raises the standard on the performance we offer our customers.”

Those in the Goulburn and Murray valleys can purchase the new baler from the Rural Group, which has dealerships in Cobram, Echuca and Shepparton.

“The new high density baler features a modern design,” Rural Group dealer principal Chris Pettigrove said.

“It is the smoothest and quietest baler I've seen, which combines with the incredible serviceability and cleanliness in operation.

“The new technically advanced gearbox provides smooth start-up and operation.

“This is a baler that will be a real pleasure to drive and service.”

The New Holland BigBaler 1290 High Density produces bales of up to 22 per cent higher density than conventional large square balers, significantly increasing transport and bale handling efficiency.

The new MaxiSweep pick-up helps feed in crop at higher rates, resulting in increased capacity and performance, and the BigBaler also introduces the unique SmartShift gearbox, winner of an Agritechnica silver medal, that delivers a soft start-up resulting in greater comfort for the operator and overload protection for the tractor's driveline.

The unique patented LoopMaster knotting technology ensures best-in-class solid binding and protects the environment and the forage by eliminating twine offcuts, while the short drawbar concept ensures excellent visibility for the operator and manoeuvrability.

Comfort is further enhanced with a new intuitive user interface using the large IntelliView IV touchscreen display and it also comes with a range of automated features such as the IntelliCruise technology system which automatically adjusts tractor speed.
