Characterised by flowing elegant lines that
scythe through the air, this quintessentially
New Holland design, fully in line with all
flagship harvesting products, offers significant
advantages in terms of servicing and safety.
The ultra-wide single-piece front shield opens
on gas struts, an industry first.
This provides unfettered access to all moving
parts, as well as to the automatic greaser and
oiler for swift daily maintenance for minimum
downtime. The single-piece side shields use
an identical opening logic, and form a
hermetic seal around the twine compartment
to prevent dust ingress, which improves both
knotter performance and the maintenance
environment. The super flat service deck on
the top of the baler has made servicing even
easier, together with reducing possible areas
of debris accumulation.
A unique safety system has been developed
so that the front shield can only be
opened when the baler is completely
stationary, when the PTO has been
deactivated and when the flywheel brake
has been engaged. Side doors can be
opened in absolute safety as they only
cover the twine boxes and provide no
access to any moving components.
Improved knotter shielding and
impressive cleaning performance
increases bale productivity.
New Holland has pioneered double knot
technology for over 25 years, and continual
development has resulted in a segment-leading
The upgraded knotting shields ensure that the
knotter stays free from debris to prevent costly
miss-ties. Furthermore, the airflow around the
knotter was mapped using state-of-the art
computation fluid dynamic programmes.
Areas of stagnant airflow were identified, and
three fans have been precision placed to
automatically blow away any debris before it clogs
For operations which work in most extreme
conditions, an optional air blow off kit can be
specified, which is supplied by the tractor's
pneumatic air brakes. This automatic system,
controlled via the IntelliViewTM monitor, automati-
cally directs a high speed air jet to further enhance
IntelliViewTM IV colour touchscreen monitor for
wide-screen baler management:
When baling at top speed operators must have at
a glance intuitive fingertip control of all key
The standard IntelliViewTM III monitor, or the wide
screen IntelliViewTM IV monitor can be specified.
Bale length, density and moisture content,
amongst others, can be analysed and adjusted on
the move. Knotter fans, automatic oil and greasing
can even be controlled via the screen.
The BigBaler is also fully ISOBUS compatible for
visibility enhancing, single screen technology, and
offers perfect integration with tractors equipped
with the SideWinderTM II armrest.
Improved lighting package and operator
comfort boost performance:
The redesigned lighting package optimises the
spread of light around the baler and turns night
into day when working late into the night to bale
the crop in optimal condition. In addition, two
dedicated LED work lights have been positioned
on the pick-up to flood the area with light to assist
the operator when working in dim or dark
The optional comfort package has been designed
with professional baling operations in mind. The
right hand rail on the flat service deck further
enhances safety and a touch of baling luxury
comes courtesy of the extra-large tool box and
water tank for hand washing.
Efficient road transport and ultimate in-field
The range-topping large wheel tandem axle
significantly reduces ground pressure to assist in
rapid crop regrowth, perfect for hay and silage
operations which perform multiple cuts through-
out the season.
Moreover, all tyre combinations are under three
metres wide for stable high speed transport
The BigBaler's already outstanding manoeuv-
rability has been maintained thanks to the
sculpted frame design.
PLM bale data management:
The BigBaler offers advanced PLM solutions, such
as bale weight, which can be controlled and
analysed using New Holland's award winning
electronic ActiveWeighTM on-the-go bale weighing
technology, moisture content, date and time and
the bale's GPS location can all be recorded. All
data for each individual bale can be downloaded
using a USB stick to create precise yield and field
mapping data, so that inputs can be fine-tuned to
increase productivity and profitability for future
seasons. The Crop IDTM system can transfer all
aforementioned data onto a radio frequency tag
which can be consulted at a later date for bale
Evolution in baler numbering:
New Holland has applied its evolved numbering
strategy to the BigBaler range to make its
performance immediately obvious to customers.
The BigBaler name is the natural progression of
the current 'BB' designation, making its size
immediately obvious. The first one or two
numbers, either '8' or '12' represent the bale width
in centimetres, '8' for 80cm and '12' for 120cm.
The final two digits refer to the bale height in
centimetres, either '70' or '90'.
