New Holland’s next-generation BigBaler offers a 20% increase in capacity and up to a 5% increase in bale density from older models. The BigBaler 330 produces 3 x 3’ bales; the BigBaler 340 makes 3 x 4’ bales. The line’s MaxiSweep pickup features a full-width feed-assist roller with paired overshot-undershot augers at both ends to completely pull in material. A standard roller windguard helps pre-compress the crop mat before the pickup tines for continuous smooth crop flow.

Vermeer’s VR2040 high-capacity wheel rake has a 40’ raking width and 20 rake wheels, each equipped with individual wheel suspension.
It also features a dual-purpose lift-and-suspension cylinder on each rake wheel, coupled with a nitrogen-charged accumulator, for easily changing rake-wheel settings and pressure. By properly setting the pressure, the down force on each wheel remains consistent through the entire range of motion, improving tooth life and hay pickup, and reducing dirt content in the windrow.
