The RB545 and RB545 Silage Pack round balers from Case IH are designed to make baling faster, easier and simpler, all while producing higher-quality results.
INCREASED BALE DENSITY – HIGHER FORAGE VALUE
Silage baling is all about getting good quality grass from the swath to the stack as quickly and cleanly as possible, whether dealing with high dry matter material or dense green crops. Case IH RB544 round balers are designed to package your grass rapidly and reliably, regardless of the challenges that climate, weather or ground conditions may create, to ensure maximum protection of leaf quality and sugar content. Their ability to compact the plant material to make bales of the highest density means they actually produce fewer bales per hectare, reducing wrapping costs and raising silage quality.
Whether you’re dealing with first cut or lateseason grass, shortstemmed material, long stalks or bulky, leafy grass, the fivebar pickup ensures a high feedrate, even in light crops, while keeping losses to a minimum.
The large diameter feeder draws the material into the chopper knives, which process it to an average length of 51mm. The hardened knives remain sharp – and therefore fuel-efficient – for as long as possible, reach deep into the bale chamber, for thorough, accurate, efficient cutting. They are spring-protected and re-set automatically in case of a hard object being picked up. Knives can be extracted and replaced without tools.
Eighteen compression rollers firmly but gently knead the silage to exclude air, and form high density round bales 1.2m wide and 1.25m in diameter (1.3m on HD versions). The rollers run in unique constantly lubricated bushes that are able to withstand the rigours of performing in tough, high-moisture conditions. Active chamber control on Silage Pack HD balers provides extra high-density performance.
NET OR PLASTIC FILM PRE-WRAPPING
RB544 round balers feature net-wrap (basic) and plastic/net wrapping options (Silage Pack, Silage Pack HD). Applying film in the bale chamber replaces netwrap, protects the grass quickly, reduces further wraps on the wrapping table, and ensures bales are more easily unwrapped especially in freezing conditions. Film rolls can be easily exchanged for net ones if required.
Airtight wrapping is completed by two satellite arms on the wrapping table. The overlap between the film layers can be adapted to your needs of silage protection. When wrapping is complete, the high-speed wrapping table can place bales on the ground either conventionally or on their ends, when discharging them. This prevents bales from rolling downhill on sloping fields.
CHAMBER CONTROL ON RB 544 SILAGE PACK HD
The RB544’s unique Active Chamber Control (ACC) constantly monitors and adjusts density to ensure material is packed tightly and consistently into each bale. The result is maximum density silage bales with minimal air inclusion, helping to minimise any chance of spoilage and ensure bales keep their shape over long storage periods.
PERFORMANCE MONITOR – OPERATOR CONTROL
Operation is made easier by a baler monitor display that features large numbers and letters to ensure data is easy to read during both day and night. The screen is divided into information and settings areas, with all settings easily accessed, ensuring they can be quickly altered to suit changing conditions, or re-configured to the factory settings if required.
All models are equipped with large, low-pressure flotation tyres to ensure minimal field damage, while tandem axles on wrapper models further reduce ground pressure. The bottom line is that grass regrowth is unhindered, meaning high quality crops can be produced cut after cut.
