    Designed for optimal crop pick up.

    Featuring an innovative design, this pick-up with an intake width of 2.30 m, gathers even the thickest, tallest windrows effectively and quickly. The gradient control and height adjustment systems mean that the machine closely follows the contours of the terrain to ensure thorough gathering. The pick-up roller feeds material to the rotor effectively regardless of the conditions of the crop. To adapt the machine to your fields, you have the choice between fixed and pivoting pick-up wheels. The pivoting pick-up wheels are semi-pneumatic and therefore idel for rough terrain and stony soils.

    Intake capacity is one of the most important factors in profitability. That is why the SB series balers feature a high-performance crop intake system. The unique crop guard design, in combination with a high torque on the INTEGRAL ROTOR and on the feeder fork driveline, ensures a high intake capacity while offering extreme endurance.

    Go into detail

    A perfect balance between capacity and density

    The Power Density system ensures optimum compression chamber filling with all types of forage, while also preserving the qualities of the forage itself. Whether working with the season's first harvest of lucerne, the large windrows typical of the first cutting in spring or straw, this system ensures the same, outstanding results, with tightly packed, evenly formed bales. The loader fork transfers the forage from the rotor to the compression chamber. When this pre-compression chamber is 100% full and the pressure reaches a predetermined value, the system automatically transfers the pre-compressed block directly to the compression chamber.

    DEUTZ-FAHR's engineering excellence is evident in pistons and a compression chamber designed with the primary goal of producing extremely compact, tightly packed bales. The 3.4 meter long compression chamber ensures outstanding bale density. The piston is driven at a speed of 46 strokes/minute directly by the main transmission and is mounted on three or four 150 mm diameter roller bearings which run on specially treated slides. The roller bearings are lubricated by a centralised system and located outside the compression chamber for easy access for inspection and maintenance. The pressure may be preset directly from the cab of the tractor. In the event of overload, the machine reduces the pressure in the chamber to prevent the risk of damage. Once the overload has been cleared, the preset pressure is restored. All models are equipped with cam-actuated clutch protection systems for all the main feeder elements: namely, the pick-up, integral rotor and loader fork.

    The patented torque regulation system on all BigMaster 6 series 120 cm bale channel models ensures a perfect balance between capacity and density. The system consists of plunger rod load pins that measure the plunger force and an angle sensor that measures the crank angle. Throughout the complete plunger cycle the exact torque is calculated. The benefit of this sophisticated measuring method is that up to 5% higher bale density can be achieved when driving at a capacity of 25 t/h. This results in a higher transport and handling efficiency.

    Different binding solutions

    The TWIN STEP system on the BigMaster 5 series ensures trouble-free knotting. The knot is tied in two steps to create the ideal tension between the twine and knotters, for maximised bale density. The 4 or 6 knotters (depending on model) are lubricated by a centralised system, and may also be connected to an optional lubricator system. For additional peace of mind, to reduce the risk of machine damage and down-time, each knotter is protected by a shear bolt.

    The BigMaster 6 models are equipped with a double knotting system. With the electronic knotter control, the driver has accurate information concerning twine tension at all times and receives an alarm in case of risk. The knotting progress can be monitored directly from the tractor cab.

    The design of the BigMaster 6 models offers perfect accessibility to the inside of the machine during daily inspection and maintenance. For more safety, the knotter deck is equipped with solid stairs and a safety railing. The safety railing can be folded down easily to reduce the height of the machine during transport. Moreover, the driver can benefit from optimal comfort thanks to the heavy flywheel, the load sensing hydraulics and the torque regulation system.

    Always in control

    Take advantage of ISOBUS compatibility on the BIGMASTER large square balers range! CCI 800 and 1200 ISOBUS terminals are AEFcertified. They focus on three priorities: performance, visibility and flexibility. Control intuitively your machines with their large size antiglare touchscreen. Capable of displaying simultaneously different essential information, accepting the connection of a joystick control and a camera, these terminals offer a high level of flexibility.
