Fixed Chamber Balers
The FB3130 is a fixed chamber baler by Kuhn which comes with a ‘Integral Rotor’ designed to produce top quality bales and comes complete with Kuhn’s ‘OptiCut’ should you need to cut crops. When using this baler a twine or net binding system is activated to ensure the compressed bale is secure. As a farmer you will have full view of the process as the binding system is located at the front of the baler for easy viewing. The bale chamber consists of 18 ‘Powertrack Rollers’ and has a pickup intake width of 2.3 meters.
The Kuhn FB 3130 is controlled by a AT 10 control box which provides clear ad easy to read information for the operator in the tractor. Operator information such as fast bale growth and bale counters (cut / uncut /meters of net used) are also provided.
The Kuhn FB3135 fixed chamber baler is a high end model with ‘Isobus’ steering, to ensure clear operator settings such as the amount of net layers and type of binding start (manual / automatic). Being able to adjust the bale density from the comfort of the tractor cab gives additional driver comfort. Whilst use of efficient techniques such as a ‘Integral Rotor’ and ‘Powertrack’ (with 18 power track rollers) ensures very high density and reliable bale rotation in all crop conditions.
The FB 3135 also offers the ‘Opticut 14’ and ‘Opticut 23’ with intensive cutting to ensure quality cut crops. Double security is provided by the hydraulic rotor disengagement and ‘Dropfloor’ technology which allows the floor and knives to be lowered hydraulically from the tractor cab should there be a rotor blockage. This high end model also has heavy roller bearings which are oversized with central greasing and ‘Beka-Max’ to ensure continuous chain oiling for maximise baler reliability. The net binding system within this baler also assures a firm bale shape with constant high net tension throughout the entire binding cycle, even beyond the bale shoulders.
New to the Kuhn FB 3135 at Drumlish Farm Machinery is an ‘Automate’ function which means visual and acoustic signals on the baler are activated when the new binding is being applied. The tailgate will also open and close automatically but when the bale kicker notices that the bale is out of reach it will not open the tailgate any further than necessary. This ‘Automate’ feature allows the driver to fully focus on the driving of their tractor whilst improving safety throughout the baling process.
Variable Chamber Balers
VB 3160, 3165, 3190, 3195
Within the Kuhn range of variable chamber balers you can choose from the VB 3160, VB 3165, VB 3190 or VB 3195. Each model is fast, simple and reliable with a wide range of techniques such as ‘integral rotor’, ‘progressive density’.In a non-cutting version, there is choice between the ‘Optiflow’ and ‘Optifeed’ intake units. When cutting is required, the machine can be equipped with an ‘Opticut’ intake unit. On selected models, additional features such as ‘Dropfloor’ technology is available. While many are ‘Isobus’ compatible to allow the operator an optimal view and control of all baling processes.
