High performance big balers from Case IH, the advanced-look LB series balers not only suit the customer business, they are also stuffed with modern features to meet your business challenges, now and well into the future.
The Case IH AFS monitor continuously supervises and displays all key baler functions, including the knotters. New on LB models is a visual steering aid to assist operators in picking up very small and/or irregular swaths and ensure uniform, sturdy bales are formed even in difficult conditions. On the AFS Pro 700 monitor, images from several video cameras can be displayed simultaneously. It is also possible to operate the balers through the terminals of ISOBUS-compatible tractors.
The new high-speed pickup with stronger tines for improved feeding and additional feed roll for high speed work in all crops and conditions. The pickup has up to 2.40m working width. A swath windguard, available in a rake or roller version and manually-adjustable to match crop conditions, works with an additional intake auger plus central feed roller to ensure rapid and loss-free material transfer, even with bulky harvest material.
For maximum road safety Case IH big balers feature suspension systems for excellent handling. On and off the road they offer a wide choice of tyres to match your working conditions. There is a choice of either a single axle or tandem axle, with steered rear axle. The large tyres in combination with the steered tandem axle reduce soil pressure and protect the regrowth of the next crop. In spite of their higher performance and capacity, new LB series balers feature a very compact construction, and even on 600mm-wide tyres they are less than 3m wide. Transport speeds of up to 60kph are possible on the road, depending on local regulations.
The proven and extremely reliable double knotter system on the new machines offers an optional new compressed air cleaning system to ensure reliability by keeping knotters clear of dust and debris. This is in addition to the improved current knotter cleaning system and is used for extreme dusty conditions, often experienced in drier countries.
Whatever the crop-light hay, dry straw or the first silage cut with heavy material, rich in sucrose, LB big balers will consistently form the right bale in perfect condition for bedding or feeding. With four models in the range and different crop cutter knife options you can choose the chopping system for your needs and bale dimensions to suit your farming or contract operation. Renowned bale density can be easily adjusted from the tractor seat using the AFSmonitor regardless how fast the baler operates.
High pickup speed allows for higher capacity baling to capture the crop in time – always at the required density and consistent bale shape to suit all rehandling requirements. The new Feedrate option ensures optimum performance of the baler, by adapting the speed of the tractor to the swath volume.
Case IH LB balers have been designed to give trouble free operation for many seasons and to require the minimum of service and maintainance. Direct access to all major components is provided by the high-opening panels that lift upwards supported by gas assisted cylinders. Storage compartments with the ability to store up to 32 twine balls are enough for a days high capacity baling.
