Self-Propelled Big Baler Lets You Adjust Bale Size
New from France is the world's first self-propelled big round baler which also features a variable bale chamber. Bale size can be set anywhere from 2 to 6 ft. in dia. A large indicator light in front of the driver advises when the exact diameter has been reached, thus assuring uniform size bales. Bale width is 4 ft.
Manufactured by Rivierre Casalis, the self-propelled RC121 is a converted pull-type. It's catching on especially fast with European farmers who bale flax straw. "Working at speeds of 10 to 12 miles per in flax, it allows the operator to look forward," notes J. M. Hammann, sales manager.
Power is provided by a 70-hp. 4-cyl. Deutz engine. Height of the pickup is controlled hydraulically. Twine is fed via a telescopic tube and, as standard equipment, the baler is fitted with a new automatic twine-wrapping robot which allows automatic repetition of any twine- wrapping cycle programmed by the operator. The operator, by flipping a switch, can repeat the tying cycle.
