Big Square Balers
Several upgrades and innovative options are available on the Case IH LB333 and LB433 large square balers. The 2009 models provide a more-consistent bale shape and length and improve bale density by up to 5%. An improved knotter reduces stops and increases baling time, and wider rear doors make bale ejection easier with less friction. A new dual-bale ejection system lets the operator eject only the rear-most bale or clear out the entire bale chamber.

Square Bale Wrappers
Kverneland Taarup has introduced two new wrappers for medium-sized square bales. The 7124 tractor-mounted wrapper can handle bales 32" wide, 24-40" high and up to 71" long. The 7524 trailed, self-loading wrapper is for 32"-wide bales ranging from 24-40" high and up to 71" long.
Both are available with a manual or computerized control system. The latter offers fully automated, push-button wrapping. During transport, the trailed model's wheels can be folded inward to reduce its overall width.
