ITT News CM93: Testing the BigBaler 1290 Plus NH Baler
Last July a field test was carried out at the beginning of the harvest to test one of New Holland's most accurate machines. The NH Bigbaler 1290 Plus baler.
This baler is the largest of the four models that make up New Holland's BigBaler series and differs from previous series in:
- It has a longer baling chamber to give more uniformity to the bales and can achieve greater density of the bale.
- Its tandem axle reduces soil compaction, improving forage baling and favouring crop regrowth.
- It has an IntelliView monitor in which various functions can be controlled and activated from the tractor driver's seat. It informs of the different variables of the work, has a capacity indicator and warns of possible warnings or alarms.
- IntelliCruise system with two operating modes: load control and plate control.
- Partial Bale-Eject function that allows the last fully formed bale to be ejected into the compression chamber when a farmer's farm has been packed and NH Bigbaler 1290 Plus is to be transferred to another owner's farm.
These are just some of the improvements that were tested in the field test carried out in July in the province of Segovia. The results showed that the NH Bigbaler 1290 Plus is an efficient machine and more than profitable.
- The machine offered full performance with a high working capacity (excluding maneuvers) of 7 ha/h.
- A total of 4.76 bales/ha were packed with an average weight of 484 kg/bale.
- It did a good job with a drier product than usual. The bales were very well formed, maintaining their consistency in the chosen handling system (two-tipped front loader).
- It has numerous technical options that allow optimum work to be carried out in different working conditions.
In conclusion, a combine that offers maximum profitability with excellent performance.
