Up to 22% higher density than conventional large square balers
The BigBaler 1290 High Density features the longest bale chamber in its segment, at 4.05 metres, and impressively high plunger force. With a 748 mm stroke, the plunger force is significantly maximized to reach as much as 58% more than Plus models, for even denser bales. The heavy-duty density ring features three top-mounted double-acting cylinders and two left and right, which is unique in this application. The double-acting cylinders are controlled by two hydraulic pumps and ensure full density within the first bales, when starting up with an empty bale chamber.
The unique driveline concept, winner of the Agritechnica Silver Medal, features a two-speed powershift start-up technology that delivers a smooth baler engagement with a 79% increase in torque. The operator engages the baler at a tractor PTO speed of 850 rpm, the SmartShift™ gearbox automatically shifts from 1st to 2nd gear, accelerating to a maximum flywheel speed of 1440 rpm at full tractor PTO speed – one of the highest flywheel speeds in the segment. This smooth start-up process protects the tractor and baler drivelines. The flywheel is significantly heavier than on BigBaler Plus models and has a 16% larger diameter, coming in at 1080 mm. The flywheel’s higher speed and larger size deliver 230% more energy, resulting in a more comfortable and efficient baling. A multi-plate brake with internal cooling, integrated in the gearbox, slows down the plunger and brings it to a stop when it reaches the optimum start position. It also serves as an emergency brake capable of bringing the plunger to a halt safely within 8 seconds. Additional customer benefits include the service mode with slow driveline rotation and overload protection. Also contributing to the BigBaler 1290 High Density’s high productivity is the new 2.35-metre MaxiSweep™ pick-up, which is perfect for the widest swaths left by today’s high-capacity combines.
The CropCutter™ system guarantees a controlled cutting action and superior fine cutting quality thanks to the 29 knives with individual knife spring protection and paired rotor fingers per knife. The higher rotor speed compared to the PLUS models also guarantees a higher throughput in all conditions.
The BigBaler 1290 High Density features New Holland’s Loop MasterTM knotting technology, which builds on the brand’s proven double-knotting system introducing a loop-style second knot. This results in up to 26% more tensile strength that reduces breakages and eliminates twine offcuts. The benefits are two-fold: on the one hand, it eliminates over six kilometres or 46 kg of twine offcuts in a 10,000-bale season; these offcuts, which are currently left in the field, will stay out of the environment and the customer’s forage. On the other hand, it ensures very tight knots, which significantly reduces twine snapping, an annoyance for every baler driver.
The BigBaler 1290 High Density introduces a new hydraulic axle concept with a hydraulic suspension that delivers improved ground following and ensures perfect weight distribution across the four wheels for low roll resistance. This not only improves the baler’s road and field performance, it also reduces tyre wear. The hydraulic axle concept also provides excellent access for maintenance, as no leave springs block the area.
The BigBaler 1290 High Density, developed at CNH Industrial’s Design Centre, is designed and built to last. The new heavy-duty frame has been designed to manage the higher density loads this baler experiences, with the new gearbox mounting design that attaches the gearbox to the top, ensuring durability and reduced crop accumulation. The new needle yoke reclaim system provides reliable needle protection.
