New Holland went big at World Dairy Expo as in BigBaler Big! On the show lot to visit with dairy farmers was Curt Hoffman. I visited with Curt to learn a little bit about these new balers.
New Holland’s next generation BigBaler sets a new benchmark in baling performance. With up to a 20% increase in capacity and up to 5% denser bales, the BigBalers significantly improve productivity and profitability. The BigBaler 330 produces 3′x3′ bales while the BigBaler 340 produces 3′x4′ bales.
The all-new MaxiSweepTM pickup has been completely redesigned featuring a new full-width feed assist roller with paired overshot-undershot augers at both ends to pull in material to ensure that every last stem of profitable crop is safely baled. The addition of a standard roller windguard helps pre-compress the crop mat before the pickup tine so ensure continuous smooth crop flow from the swath to the baler and prevents crop flow disturbance for uniform bale production.
