Baler Automation will increase productivity, bale quality and operational flexibility.
07 November 2023, Italy: Case IH is delivering seamless, hands-free efficiencies in baling with the introduction of Baler Automation at Agritechnica 2023. This next generation integration connects tractors and balers for optimal performance when it matters most.
“Efficiencies are the name of the game and the baling business is no different,” said Global Product Leader for Crop Production and Hay & Forage product lines, Monte Weller, Case IH. “With pressures of rising fuel costs, lack of skilled labor and unpredictable weather patterns, an operator’s time in the field needs to be at peak productivity and we purposefully designed our Baler Automation solution to get them there.”
The Case IH Baler Automation solution helps deliver consistent, high-quality bales specifically for large square bale production. Here’s how it works: the automation technology signals to the tractor to automatically adjust speed for optimal crop feeding and preferred slice quantity on the other end. The result is peace of mind for the operation knowing that the automation is boosting throughput, preventing blockages, and reducing fuel consumption as work continues through a field.
Case IH Baler Automation also benefits operators by ensuring greater flexibility, more comfort and reduced stress. The easy-to-use technology optimizes the tractor’s steering, helping maximize baler throughput, preventing overloads, and improving fuel economy, making it simple to deliver consistent quality without operator fatigue.
“Even when you’re not the one in the cab, you can get a lot more done with the Case IH Baler Automation,” said Weller. “There’s an opportunity to view jobs remotely, understand service needs and import bale drop data by field or job—including bale weights, moisture, density, flake count, the list goes on. You don’t have to be in the seat to know how well things are going.”
The new Baler Automation technology will be available for all Case IH LB6 Series and model-year 2024 LB4 Series balers. Operations interested in increasing performance and efficiency should visit www.caseih.com for more information.
