The newly released 900 Series variable chamber baler design by John Deere is sure to enchant livestock farmers, according to a published report. And two models are available.
The 960 model produces bales of 0.8-1.6 meters while the 990 produces bales of 0.8-1.85 meters. Both John Deere balers possess a 2.2 meter pick-up and they are equipped with either a non-chopper RotoFlow feeder rotor or a chopper MaxiCut rotor. The 960 and 990 models are equipped with either a 13 or 25-knife pre-cutter.
The machinery will be fully produced for commercial purposes in 2012. Until then, limited quantities of the machinery are available at John Deere dealerships.
Since the fronts of the new series of balers are built to hold the net wrapping system, monitoring the net-tying process will be simpler. With assistance from three powered rollers inside the chamber, igniting the baler will be easier. This functionality will prove to be beneficial during wet conditions.
The newly manufactured series of balers are ISOBUS-certified. The machinery also is compatible with GreenStar 1,800 displays, which aids soft core pressure and diameter. Bale density and size also will see upgrades.
