John Deere Launches New 9-Series Balers

Presented by

Leading agricultural machinery manufacturer John Deere has introduced its 9 Series Round Balers for 2013.

The new range which includes 12 baler models comes with a range of enhancements that John Deere claims will increase durability and productivity of the balers.

These enhancements include larger cams and bearings in their existing pickup system, new Diamond chains, a redesigned output shaft, quicker gate cycle time for speedier bale ejection and extended-lube driveline

According to Laura Cobb, senior marketing representative at John Deere Ottumwa Works, the new 9 Series Round Balers offer customers a larger selection of machines that will handle a wide variety of forage and silage baling needs. The current round baler line-up is listed below.

"We've also added silage-special balers to the Class IV baler line-up, giving customers options for larger bale sizes in silage, especially new five-by-six-foot bales," Cobb says.

A new ISOBus electronics system is also built into the new range which John Deere claims ensures responsive baler/tractor operation.

The new system has GreenStar 3 integration with 1800, 2600, 2630, and CommandCenter displays which John Deere says will give customers full monitoring and control of their machines.

Cobb says customers will appreciate the additional strength and reliability of the new 9 Series Round Balers.

"They'll have more optional features to choose from to customise their baler to the type of crop they have and the size of bale they want to handle. As a result, we've made it easier for customers to produce tight, uniformly sized and shaped bales faster than ever before."
