Round Baler Family

The Round Baler Family Just Got Bigger.

Whether baling wet silage, dry hay or stalks, new additions to the Case IH round baler family are designed to boost your productivity and efficiency.

The new are made to handle higher bale counts with new high-performance features. Built to tackle wet and heavy silage but able to excel in any crop, RB6 HD Pro balers bring superior speed with fewer moving parts, making for lower maintenance and greater productivity.

New Standard and Premium modelshave also been added to the lineup with features such as wider pickup widths and a new wrapping system. Taken together, these features and models allow you to create denser, higher-quality hay, leaving you with fewer bales to handle.

Automation

Tractor & Baler Automation

This system controls the tractor stop, bale wrap and bale eject functions without any operator input required. Paired with a Puma® or Maxxum tractor, featuring a CVXDrive™ continuously variable, PowerDrive powershift or ActiveDrive 8 dual-clutch transmission, operators can take advantage of ISOBUS Class 3 controls to automatically stop the tractor when the target bale size is reached. After that, net wrap is automatically applied and, when the wrap cycle is complete, the baler tailgate raises and lowers automatically to eject each wrapped bale. Once the completed bale is ejected, the operator can simply move the tractor shuttle lever to the forward position and go.

Capacity & Durability

High-Capacity Baling

  • Feeders

    • The hay and silage models feature an overshot feeder.
    • The overshot feeder provides smooth and consistent crop flow from the pickup into the bale chamber, resulting in higher capacity.
    • If equipped, the 5-bar pickup combined with a roller windguard provides a clean sweep of crop and uninterrupted feeding of material into the baler.
    • No-tool-adjust gauge wheels help protect the pickup in rough fields. For curvy fields, the castering gauge wheel option prevents crop scuffing and damaging regrowth.
    • Low-profile design lets the pickup float over ground contours, gently gathering crop and saving nutrient-packed leaves.
  • Durable Performance

    • The heavy-duty pickup features stronger, more-durable components to increase the wear life of the pickup.
    • The “premium laced” and “endless” belts are designed with higher tensile strength for improved durability and better belt tracking.
    • The main drive is protected by a cutout clutch, not friction disks. This reduces overall maintenance and increases productivity.
    • The new RB456 and RB466 Pro HD round balers offer heavy-duty components and fewer moving parts for a higher bale count life cycle (5,000 or more bales annually).
    • The new HD drive heavy-duty option available for the RB565 Premium round baler includes larger chains and sprockets, main gear box, and heavier cutout clutch for an efficient transmission of power.

Bale Control

Easy In-Cab Adjustment of Bale Quality

  • In-Cab Density Adjustment

    All RB5 balers may be equipped with in-cab density. This allows the operator to be able to control density from the monitor, either Deluxe or Pro 700 (shown). With dual zone control, the inner (core) density may be set independently from the outer density. Increase the outer density when storing bales outside for improved weatherability.

  • On-Board Moisture Sensor

    The Moisture Sensor option displays bale moisture on the monitor as the bale is formed and provide the final average moisture for the completed bale.
    • It is a fully-integrated system that works with the balers electronics and monitor, no need for a separate display
    • Available with either Deluxe (shown) or Pro 700 monitor
    • The moisture system is able to measure bale moisture from 7% to 60%, providing a wide range for both dry and wet crops, including hay, straw, silage, and corn stalks
    • It is simple to use. If desired, the operator can set a high and low moisture level warning, otherwise no adjustment needed
    • Offered as both a factory installed option or a dealer-installed kit for balers made after February 2019

Net and Twine Solutions

Net Wrap Electrical System and Twine Delivery System

Net wrap system and twine delivery improvements on standard baler models provide more reliability with fewer adjustments. Plus, new wrapping systems offer options for twine, net and twine/net wrapping.
Net Wrap Electrical System and Twine Delivery System
  • Net Wrap Electrical System

    • Separate motor for net knife and duckbill reducing current draw in system
    • Front-loading net wrap for efficient net loading and positive feeding on bale
    • Fewer adjustments for simplicity and better performance
    • New wrapping system on the RB456A standard round baler offers three options: twine, net and twine/net wrapping
  • Twine Delivery System

    • Enhanced single pivot, dual twine arm system
    • Positive twine starts due to twine arm sweeping across the full face of bale from left to right and back rather than staring in center
    • Twine tails reduced to left side only
    • Twine end wrap position adjustable from monitor
    • Consistent twine spacing across entire width of bale

BELT OPTIONS

Belts Built to Last

Belts can make or literally break your season. That’s why Case IH has two kinds of belts to suit your needs and your budget — both made for long life. And, with a three-year/15,000-bale warranty, you can bale worry free knowing your bottom line is protected.
  • Endless Belts

    • Three-year/15,000-bale warranty
    • No splices to track better and maintain crosswise rigidity and lengthwise flexibility
    • Unique construction prevents belt failure from edge punctures or tears
    • Sealed edges prevent fraying
  • Premium Laced Belts

    • Provide durability and flexibility while delivering excellent value
    • Premium laced belts use Mato® fasteners with long-lasting cold-rolled loops

Feeder Options

Feeder Options to Fit Your Operations

  • Overshot

    Available in Hay and Silage models, the rotating feed rotor provides smooth, uninterrupted crop flow.As the crop comes off the pickup, the tines of the large diameter rotor engage the crop and keep it moving over the top of the feeder (overshot) and into the chamber.

    The “W” pattern of the tines and large 14” diameter provide high capacity baling in a diverse range of crops and conditions.

  • Undershot Feeder

    A large diameter rotor, paired with a hydraulically operated drop floor, combine to give you high capacity in even the most difficult crops. The undershot rotor is designed for aggressive feeding. If a rotor plug does occur, the drop floor allows you to easily and quickly clear the plug from the comfort of the cab.

    The chopping system available in RB455 and RB465 rotor-cutter models processes the crop to build extra bale density.The 15-blade chopping system works to reduce feed particle length to maximize feed quality.Rotor-cutter balers are the ideal balers for baleage operations and baling high moisture crops.

  • Reduce Waste to Improve Profitability

    University studies have shown that feeding bales that have been processed significantly reduces waste. By packing smaller pieces of forage, the baler can create incredibly dense bales containing less oxygen which is very beneficial to the fermentation process. The smaller forage length reduces the amount of feed that drops from the animal’s mouth while eating.Feed that is dropped typically gets stepped on and goes uneaten.
