Appropriately named Feedrate Control, the advanced baling technology enables the baler to run at optimal performance by controlling the speed of the tractor. Using Feedrate Control, the baler controls the tractor’s forward speed through ISOBUS Class 3 commands, maintaining desired capacity by using a charge sensor. The system then calculates the best speed based on the information received from the sensors.
Feedrate Control includes two running operations:
Charge Control (available on LB334R, LB434R and LB434R XL rotor cutter configurations): Charge Control automatically adjusts the tractor's speed to reach optimal capacity inside the baler. This results in a higher feedrate throughput by up to 9 percent overall
Slice Control (available on all configurations of LB4 models): Slice Control automatically adjusts the tractor's speed based on bale slice thickness. This allows the operator to predetermine the number of slices per bale to create more consistency
