Features Roll-Belt 560 available from Hines Equipment Co., NC
THE SIZE THAT STARTED IT ALL, NOW REDEFINING ALL
New Holland round baling history started in 1974 with the Model 850. Today, the same size baler, the Roll-Belt™ 560, is still designed and built to get the most out of every season.
EXCLUSIVE BALE-SLICE™ SYSTEM
For denser bales that are simpler to feed and easier for livestock to digest, select a 560 with New Holland’s industry-exclusive Bale-Slice system. In contrast to a CropCutter® rotary cutter system that cuts crop during the entire formation of the bale, the knives of the Bale-Slice system enter the bale after its core is formed. How much of the bale is cut to the outside surface is up to you. The outcome? Bales that are 14% more dense than unsliced bales. According to a Bale-Slice study, feeding bales sliced with this method can lead to an increase in average daily weight gain in yearling heifers of 23%.
SPECIALTY CROP MODELS FOR COARSE CORNSTALKS AND SLIPPERY STRAW
The Specialty Crop configuration is exclusive to the Roll-Belt 560 model, and handles cornstalks, straw, and other high-volume crops with ease. Specialty Crop balers feature the heavy-duty ActiveSweep™ five-bar pickup with rubber tines, solid split-center bars, and a roller windguard. Additionally, this configuration also comes standard with a 1,000 RPM gearbox with a cut-out clutch, 18L-16.1SL 10PR flotation tires, crop guides to reduce crop catching on gauge wheels, fingers on the external expeller roll to remove debris, and a duckbill trash baffle to clean net wrap during each wrapping cycle. Optional items include 21.5Lx16.1 10PR tires and a 540 RPM with a cut-out clutch.
HIGH-EFFICIENCY FEEDER AUGER
ActiveSweep pickups use a double-flight, overshot feeder auger to replace the stuffer that was previously used. The design combines the feeder and augers on a common shaft to move crop efficiently from the pickup to the bale formation area. This auger also simplifies the driveline while simultaneously enhancing capacity.
A CHOICE OF 3 PICKUPS, AND ALL LEAVE NOTHING BUT BALES BEHIND
From the moment the pickup tines touch the windrow, your Roll-Belt baler will pick up all of the valuable crop that you’re baling. The design innovations on ActiveSweep™ pickups add up to a 20% increase in capacity, leaving nothing but perfect, square-shouldered bales behind.
HEAVY-DUTY ACTIVESWEEP™ PICKUP
This heavy-duty version of the ActiveSweep™ pickup is available on both Specialty Crop and Bale-Slice™ models. This pickup features four double-plate reel spiders to support the five solid-steel tine bars that are split in the center for easy servicing. Attached to the tine bars are 160, six-millimeter, rubber-mounted, curved, double-steel tines for efficient crop gathering.
STANDARD-DUTY ACTIVESWEEP™ PICKUP
Wide-pickup Roll-Belt 560s receive the standard-duty ActiveSweep pickup with a tine windguard (roller windguard optional). Three plate-type reel spiders carry four, two-inch-diameter tine bars. The 128 five-millimeter, five-coil, shot peened, curved, double steel tines have a 24% increase in bending strength to improve durability.
Dry hay 560s come equipped with the classic SuperSweep™ pickup with a tine windguard. This six tine bar pickup has 144, four-point-eight millimeter, shot peened, curved, double steel tines. A single bolt-on adjustable pickup gauge wheel is standard, but both bolt-on and no-tool dual gauge wheels are also available.
NO-TOOLS GAUGE WHEELS
In addition to dual, standard, bolt-on gauge wheels, two types of quick-adjust gauge wheels are available on both ActiveSweep™ pickups. Straight-arm wheels provide quick height adjustments with the quick removal of a lynchpin. Curved, castering gauge wheels provide the same type of quick, no-tools height adjustment, but also deliver the ability to caster on sharp turns and therefore reduce ground scuffing.
