Features

Versatility and performance provided by choice of MultiCrop bale chamber

MultiCrop gate option offers a versatile solution

This baler provides versatility to small and medium farms because of its ability to harvest wet and dry crops.

Combined with a front chamber featuring powered 12 ribbed rolls, the F441M MultiCrop provides high fixed chamber baler versatility.

Reduced maintenance increases uptime

Increasing the number of chains is often linked to high maintenance and reduced lifetime. The MultiCrop gate has two idlers that optimise chain tension to enhance chain lifespan.

An aperture on each tailgate side allows the operator to check and replace slat bearings. Due to heavy-duty slats (35-mm [1.4-in.] diameter), the bending of parts is rare and the apertures can be replaced without dismounting the conveyor.

Simple feeding with proven technology provides a long and quiet ride

Cam track design offers the best versatility

The F441M Baler provides operators with a single baler to harvest all kinds of crops, from gliding straw to short, sticky silage. Cam-track technology provides an efficient solution for such needs. The traditional stripper design provides reduced space between the pickup tines and rotor feeder, while the tine motion helps to avoids pinching.

The cam-less technology requires long strippers, creating a dead-zone between the tines and rotor. Additionally, fixed tines can easily pinch crops in sticky conditions, causing plugs that need to be manually removed.

The F441M Balers feature a 2.0- or 2.2-m (6.5- or 7.2-ft) pickup and galvanized strippers for an extended lifespan. The four-tine bars mounted on sealed ball bearings and equipped with 5-mm (0.2-in.) diameter tines meet the picking capacity expected by small and medium size farms.

High-capacity (HC) rotor limits plugging risk

The F441M features an HC rotor design already used on the previous model F440M. This simple design offers several key advantages:

  • Large-diameter rotor to provide high feeding capacity
  • Limited distance from pickup to rotor tines to reduce plugging
  • Reduced number of bearings and distributed loads along the rotor to increase reliability
  • Hardox® wear plate tines to provide high resistance to wear.
Advanced drop floor or simple rotor wrench offer unplugging choice

As with the high-spec F441R Baler, the drop floor makes removing plugs easy, even those under converging augers. This exclusive design covers the rotor width, so wherever a plug occurs, the unplugging device decompresses the crops and feeds the plug into the baler.

User-friendly and efficient tying system provide quality bale

Easy net roll loading

Even with long net rolls, a roll is changed at least twice a day. Operators lifting 40-kg (88-lb) rolls over 2.0-m (6.6-ft) can cause serious injury. A convenient loading ramp allows the operator to easily push the heavy net rolls to the wrapping system and to the roll storage device.

Simple and easy net tracking

Once placed in the wrapping device, the net is easy to install. Declutch the net system and push the net between the feeding rolls. Re-engage the system and close the shielding. The process is completed in less than a minute.
