John Deere's 8 Series round balers allow faster field speeds, improved feeding and additional features to help bale more hay in less time. It replaces the 7 Series and includes eight models with bale sizes ranging from 4 × 4' to 5 × 6'.
An optional MegaWidePlus pickup is 1' wider than the bale chamber and is designed with heavier teeth to help gather crop in wide or wind-blown windrows. It also features a self-adjusting Roller Baffle that produces a smoother crop flow across the pickup width, permitting increased ground speed with less chance of plugging.
