Optimal Crop Pickup
The pickup is designed to match the full capacity of the baler. The wide, 91” pickup, with narrow tine spacing, will leave your fields clean. Pickup teeth on the SB Series are now even stronger than before, with increased tine thickness and a fifth spring coil to extend tine life. Straight pickup tines help release the crop and reduce crop wrapping. Uniquely shaped crop guides result in more aggressive and efficient pickup by exposing more of the tine when needed, and by pulling the crop away from the tines as it approaches the intake. The pickup roller has a large 10-inch diameter which compresses the crop against the pickup tines reducing friction, thus reducing leaf loss and increasing baler efficiency by evening out the windrow. In extreme conditions, pivoting gauge wheels ease wheel and tire stress.
To better meet your operation's specific needs, there are two intake options available, the OptiFeed non-cutting rotor or the OptiCut cutting rotor. These two intakes both use our patented integral rotor. Farmers who wish to cut their crop can also choose between the 15- and 23-knife OptiCut cutting rotors.
