Challenger - LARGE BALERS
For high output and superior bales, in all common bale sizes, challenger’s large square balers are first-rate.
The Large Square Baler range’s pick-up flotation system adds to its terrain-following capability, for excellent ground clearance during baling and transportation.
Four ‘quad’ augers for the non-cutter baler provide improved pick-up capacity in all crop conditions.
Cutter balers have a full-width top auger for a smoother crop feed and a solid, fully floating wind guard is standard on all models, promoting better control of the crop at all times.
From the pick-up, the packers feed the crop into the pre-compression chamber to form the perfect flake. Once full, the stuffer feeds the flake into the bale chamber.
Even density silage bales retain their optimum nutritional value, while hay and straw bales are consistently solid and square for efficient transport and storage.
Reliability and durability is enhanced by the extensive use of sealed bearings, low component numbers and simple design.
The unrivalled double-knotter system aims to provide perfect bale quality and protection. The knotters are chain-driven directly from the main gearbox, enabling plunger, knotters and needles to be synchronised precisely.
This system is further enhanced by the knotter blower which maintains a constant flow of air, clearing any debris entering the knotter area. The design uses a full width, hydraulically driven turbine fan to ensure superior, efficient air flow.
The bale length star-wheel floats with the top chamber door, ensuring that the star-wheel gets firm traction in all crop conditions for improved bale length accuracy.
