Updated styling for RB 545 fixed chamber round baler.

Available as a standalone or combination baler-wrapper, the new RB 545 and RB 545 Silage Pack feature a 122cm by 125cm chamber and are both available for the 2017 season.

 

Taken from the firms’ variable chamber balers, both new models get a five-tine, 220cm wide pickup reel. Pickup wheels are now available in fixed or caster forms, both options have to be removed for road transport, and a single roller crop press comes as standard. The pickup also features a new heavier duty drive chain.

 

Hydraulic functions, crop flow de-clutch and hydraulic drop floor can now be operated from the in-cab controls.

 

Chopping blades come as standard, with a maximum of 20 blades and theoretical minimum chop length of 52mm. Manual engagement is required; blades are arranged in two banks of 10, so alternate banks can be used, all 20 or none.

Silage Pack models get larger tyres and additional wrap storage.

Bale chamber rollers now feature 10 ribs instead of the previous four, which Case IH says provides better grip during baling. Spacing between individual rotors has also been reduced.

 

Netting system has also been updated; the manufacturer says it is up to 20 per cent faster than previous and allows 1.3m wide netting to be used to extend over the edge of bales. Up to two spare rolls can be stored on the RB 545 machine.

 

On the combination Silage Pack machine, plastic wrap can be used instead of conventional netting. Up to 12 rolls of wrap can be stored, thanks to side compartments.

 

IsoBus functionality comes as standard on both machines, used to monitor pressures and baling progress. The manufacturers AFS 700 touch screen terminal is optional, as is a camera overlooking the wrapping table.

 

Silage Pack machines feature tandem axles, with tyre sizes increasing to 560/45x22.5 to reduce compaction.

Silage Pack HD

The firm has also revised its larger fixed chamber combination baler, the RB 544 Silage Pack HD which the manufacturer says delivers higher density 122cm by 135cm round bales.

 

With modifications to the pick-up, and chamber to wrapper transfer reduced to four seconds, Case IH says the machine is primarily aimed at contractors.
