Top marks for Case IH balers

Case IH has optimised its large square balers to peak capacity. 

Equipped with the latest ISOBUS electronic software option, the baler changes the speed of the tractor to maintain high productivity, set to one of two criteria which can be defined on the baler or tractor monitor.

The first criteria, “Charge Control”, is purely based on the capacity of the baler, measuring the time it takes to fill the pre-chamber. 

In the second criteria, “Slice Control”, a constant number of slices for a preset bale length, so density is a major input in this case. 

The benefit of this feature is that high baler productivity is maintained, with high throughput plus potential fuel savings. 

This is very evident when inexperienced operators are used or when operator fatigue normally results in a lower productivity.
