Bales up to 1.65-m (5.5-ft) in diameter maximize weight for optimal density
1.65-m (5.5-ft) x 1.21-m (3.11-ft) bales are heavy weight
As for fixed chambers or for M-/R-Series Variable Chamber Balers, the V451G Baler features a 1.21-m (3.11-ft) bale chamber width. Compared to previous generation balers with similar bale diameters, bales are up to 3.6 percent bigger than before. Considering a similar density, that is a huge advantage.
The bale diameter on the V451G Baler can be adjusted from 1.00 m (3.4 ft) to 1.65 m (5.4 ft) from the monitor. The maximum diameter of 1.65 m (5.5 ft) is an added 10 cm (3.9 in.) compared to the previous generation. This allows the grower to produce bales up to 17 percent larger than previous 852/854 Balers and also facilitates production of similar 1.60-m (5.3-ft) hay and straw bales.
Bale diameter progress can be followed from the baler with BaleTrak™ Easy option or from monitor and baler with BaleTrak monitor.
High density provided regardless of bale diameter
Dedicated cylinders for tailgate and density system plus mechanical tailgate lock
Simple density settings from the baler side
The bale chamber on the V451G Baler provides high-density bales regardless of the bale diameter or crop type. A dedicated pair of cylinders applies strength to the density arm while mechanical hooks firmly lock the tailgate in the closed position. Another pair of cylinders manage the tailgate opening/closing and avoid potential interferences between the two functions and tension loss to the belts.
Bale density is easily set from the baler hydraulic valve by a knob, a simple but efficient solution for operators not changing hydraulic settings several time in a day. Bale density can be controlled from the cab thanks to a hydraulic gauge on the front of the baler.
To optimize harvested hay quality, a softcore is offered as standard, which removes all hydraulic pressure into to the density harness up to a determined diameter. This function can be adjusted and activated from cab no matter the monitor choice. By providing a loose bale core, softcore function is particularly helpful when baling hay that has residual moisture or when unrolling bale by hand.
Bale chamber design optimizes machine versatility
Three bale chamber rolls facilitate bale rotation
Laced belts can be changed or repaired quickly and for limited cost
The bale chamber on the V451G Baler features a starter roll and two front rolls, all driven, to allow a quick crop rotation, whether harvesting short silage or brittle crops.
Easy bale starting, facilitated by the three rolls, avoids aggressive belt patterns that often cause crop accumulations. The six belts – derived from traditional diamond John Deere belts - keep the three plies, but adopt a smooth pattern. This pattern (similar to M- and R-Series Balers) is almost not sensitive to wear.
Belts are powered by a single big-diameter rubber roll. A second driven roll is available as an attachment for extreme conditions.
The belts are all joined thanks to proven and durable MATO®-type lacers. In case of trouble, belts can be easily removed and repaired, something not possible with an endless belt design.
Due to initial empty bale chamber geometry, round bales created by the V451G Baler feature a star-shaped core comparable to the one offered by fixed chamber balers. This star shape guarantees easy bale unrolling, no matter the density settings.
