New Holland Agriculture introduces the new BigBaler 340 Plus, the latest generation of its acclaimed flagship baler. The new model builds on the brand’s leadership in the large square baler market, which dates back to 1987 — close to 30 years of pioneering innovations and industry firsts leading to one-of-a-kind features that set it apart from the competition.
“The new BigBaler 340 Plus bristles with unique, best-in-class features that deliver the ultimate baling performance in all crops,” said Seth Doman, Hay & Forage Marketing Segment Leader for New Holland North America. “Hay and forage operations, straw contractors, large-scale arable farmers and biomass businesses will appreciate the higher, even more consistent bale density and the productivity of the highest capacity New Holland baler ever. High capacity combined with high bale density means fewer bales per acre, less time to collect the bales and fewer bales to transport — all of which translates into lower costs per bale. The new BigBaler 340 Plus is designed and built for reliability and durability, and the easy serviceability means it will spend even more time in the field delivering its top-notch performance.”
The BigBaler Standard and Packer Cutter models can be ordered from the plant with the new specially developed backhoes to make short work of baling the stiff and stalky biomass material, which is notoriously difficult to bale. The feeder guards of the stuffer are split to divide the forces developed in the pre-chamber and prevent damage to the stuffer shear bolt.
Multiple features mean that the BigBaler 340 Plus can spend more time in the field, further adding to its excellent productivity. The exclusive one-piece side and front shields provide easy access to all service points and moving parts for quick maintenance. The wider body of the BigBaler 340 Plus results in a bigger flat deck service platform, while the railings have been extended to the front for safety.
The new LED work and service lighting mean that the BigBaler 340 Plus can work longer hours, well after dark, and that maintenance can be carried out efficiently even in dusty, low-light conditions.
The new foldable railings facilitate shipping and make the conversion to road transport quicker and simpler, so no time is wasted when transporting the tractor and baler from field to field via semi.
