Bundled power – hour after hour

Fendt has equipped its square balers with a very efficient and robust main gearbox to ensure the best operational security. Furthermore, the new v-shaped rotor cutter with 6 rows of tines guarantees a high throughput rate and perfect quality of cut. The unique baling system, with a mechanically controlled pre-compression chamber, guarantees uniformly shaped, highly dense bales – one like the other. The main bale chamber is responsible for solid compression.

One bale like the other

Uniform shape and density

The decisive factor for uniformly dense bales is the pre-compression chamber. It is continually filled by the rake feeder. Only when the pre-compression chamber is full is the sensor flap on the bottom end of the chamber pressed down. At the same time, the fingers are pulled back and open the way to the main baling channel.

High throughput guaranteed

The precompressed flake is baled to a highly dense bale in the bale chamber. Inside the main baling channel, fingers and flaps ensure there is adequate resistance. The plunger speed of 47 strokes per minute (33 strokes for 12130) guarantees high output and smooth running.

Constant, optimum baling density

To guarantee a uniform bale density under all kinds of harvesting conditions, the load in the plunger arms is measured for each stroke of the plunger. If, for example, the measured load is too low in relationship to the preset value, the resistance in the bale chamber is automatically increased by upping the oil pressure to the hydraulic cylinders for the bale chamber flaps. The baling density is therefore controlled fully automatically. Operators only need to set the desired load for the load arms and then drive off. At the same time, the automatic indicates if it is necessary to drive further to the right or left in order to produce uniformly shaped bales.

High output – simply economical

The bales are heavy thanks to the uniquely high baling density. Furthermore, square bales are always uniformly rectangular and can be stacked easily.

Packer

The packer transports the crop material into the precompression chamber.

Sensor flap

After compression in the pre-compression chamber is completed, pressure is exerted on the flap, which activates the feed rake.

Precompression chamber

The packer ensures uniform filling of the pre-compression chamber, where the crop undergoes the first stage of compression.

Charge holding fingers

The tines prevent the crop from immediately entering into the main baling channel.
The baler is equipped with its own internal hydraulic circuit. The pump supplies the bale chamber flaps and the traverse-impeller fan with oil.
The bale chamber flaps are automatically controlled by the double-acting hydraulic cylinders in the baling channel.

You decide, how short you want it

ProCut – and the cut is just right

The new ProCut table with maximum cutting performance: The combination of a newly designed rotor cutter and an easily accessible knife drawer makes the balers more precise, faster and highly efficient. The result is perfect fodder or short bedding material.

Variable cutting length

There are 26 knives (17 knives for 990 S) available to produce an ideal cutting length of 43.5 mm for straw and silage. With the push of a button, you can halve the number of knives: the group engagement for the knives, which swings every other knife forward and backward hydraulically, is controlled in the Varioterminal. This gives you a cutting length of 88 mm. All knives are hardened with tungsten carbide and can be replaced individually.

Quick change

If you want to change the number of knives or exchange a knife, simply open the knife drawer. The knife bed is then lowered and the drawer can be pulled out with one hand movement. The double hydraulic knife protection, which secures the knives on both sides with two hydraulic cylinders, ensures safety. If necessary, the rotor tines can be unscrewed and replaced.

The heart of the table: the rotor cutter

The heart of the table: the rotor cutter

The v-shaped arrangement of the rotor tines sets up the crop for a perfect cut – with a uniform, efficient cutting process and no load peaks. The new rotor cutter runs at a speed of 120 rpm and has 6 rotor tines per rotor ring. This ensures a high cutting frequency and increases the throughput rate, resulting in lower fuel consumption. The rotor tines are hardened with carbon and especially robust and durable.

The perfect operating interface

A control terminal should be one thing most of all – user-friendly. It is optimally integrated in the overall operating concept; you can operate your Fendt square baler via the Fendt Varioterminal. The straightforward menu has a logical structure and is therefore extremely easy to use. The menu for the square baler is automatically loaded via ISOBUS technology, so you can begin working immediately.

Everything under control with the Varioterminal

Just as in the Varioterminal, the baler menu can be viewed in full screen or partial screen modes. Here the target values for the achievable plunger load can be set. Then the machine controls the bale chamber flaps automatically. An electric bale length adjustment facility is available as an option. Operators set the desired length for the bale; then the automated function triggers the knotting procedure when the bale has reached the target length. Electric adjustment permits fast changes between different lengths, which is of particular interest for contract work. Using the terminal, operators can also set the lubrication interval for the knotter lubrication system as well as create jobs, read out the number of bales and operate the bale chamber manually.

An electric bale scale is available as an option. It tells the operator in real-time, if the desired bale weight has been reached. If this is combined with the AgCommand telemetry system, customers or bale collectors can see the number, weight and position of the bales on their PC. The C1000 is the standard-equipped terminal. If no ISOBUS-compliant tractor is available or operators prefer an additional terminal, they can fall back to the C1000 terminal at any time. All functions are also available in this terminal.

Ready to go with the ISOBUS

Mosaic

The Fendt square balers are compatible with the ISOBUS as standard. This allows the baler to be operated directly through the Varioterminal or a terminal of an ISOBUS-compliant tractor. You only need to connect one cable and your familiar user interface already appears on the monitor in the cab. Additional control units can further simplify machine operation, depending on the tractor.
