New Holland BigBaler 340 Plus CropCutter™ Rotor Cutter
EVEN HIGHER BALE DENSITY
Bale chamber is extended by 31.5 inches or 31% for up to 10% higher bale density.
SOFTER BALE DROP
The longer bale chamber also means bales exit the bale chute closer to the ground for gentler bale drop and less concern about twine breakage.
EASIER CLEANINGA larger platform allows for easier cleaning of the sides of the baler.
THE RIGHT MODEL FOR YOU
With the choice of three bale sizes with available crop processing and tire/axle combinations for any terrain, you’ll find a model that’s ideal for your needs.
CROPCUTTER™ FEEDING SYSTEM
GET THE BENEFITS OF SHORTER CHOP LENGTH
Chopping crop as it’s fed into the baler provides a number of advantages. The shorter particle length allows for tighter packing of material in the bale, better fermentation in silage bales due to less air in the bale and more anaerobic bacteria activity. Cutting silage, hay or straw bales also allows for more efficient feeding and spreading of material. New Holland offers two CropCutter™ processing options—the high-performance Rotor Cutter feeding system and the more simple, economical Packer Cutter system.
ROTOR CUTTER (BIGBALER 330 PLUS/340 PLUS ONLY)
New Holland’s Rotor Cutter System gives you a widest range of chop lengths to match specific forage requirements. Select from two cut length configurations—the short cut configuration delivers chop length as small as 1.5 inches, while the medium cut configuration delivers a chop length of 3.0 inches. The proven W-shaped rotor pattern divides the power requirement equally and also ensures an equal distribution of crop. The rotor now matches the width of the pre-compression chamber for straight-through, smoother crop flow, increased flake density and capacity.
ABRASION RESISTANT OPTION
A new abrasion resistant rotor feeder option is available from the factory, and provides high wear resistance when working in cornstalks and sugarcane trash.
SLIDE-OUT KNIFE DRAWER
The industry-leading, one-piece, slide-out knife drawer makes knife inspection and sharpening fast and easy. Sharp knives require less power and lead to a more consistent cut length.
PACKER CUTTER (BIG BALER 330 PLUS ONLY)
The simple, effective Packer Cutter uses three packer forks and six double tines to feed the crop through a set of serrated knives and into the pre-compression chamber. It allows for chop lengths as short as 4.5 inches. The packer slip clutch features a more durable design for long life and reliable performance. For convenience, you can engage and disengage the cutter function from the tractor seat. Unlike competitive designs using tines or rotor lobes of the same length, New Holland’s staggered tine lengths/rotor lobes prevent the crop from pinching, which reduces crop damage, accelerated baler wear and the need for increased tractor horsepower. A fill-flow floor improves crop flow in high-moisture conditions.
