Intake Options to Meet Your Operation’s Needs
The newly designed pickup on the FB 2130 gathers the heaviest of windrows even at high forward speeds. The pendulum system and 91" wide intake with height adjustable guide wheels accurately carry the pickup over every ground contour. The pickup roller helps to even out the flow of material into the Integral Rotor, regardless of the crop conditions.
Open Throat Intake – FB 119
With the open throat design, with 66" pickup, there is no restriction on the crop as it feeds into the baler.
Integral Rotor Technology
The large diameter rotor on the FB 2130 has heavy-duty auger flighting which is integrated directly onto the outer sections of the rotor.
This system is called Integral Rotor Technology. This maintenance-free and short distance intake system ensures even feeding regardless of variations in the crop. With this system, even the heaviest of crops are force-fed through the intake, resulting in higher forward speeds for outstanding productivity.
OptiFeed & OptiCut 14 – FB 2130
Where chopping is not required, the OptiFeed Integral Rotor will feed the crop directly into the bale chamber. The FB 2130 can also be equipped with a cutter, the OptiCut 14. The 14 knives cut the crop to a maximum of 2.75". Each single knife is spring protected against damage. When the obstruction is passed the knife will automatically return to its cutting position.
Drop Floor Technology
The intake unit is protected by the main PTO clutch. If a plug occurs the PTO clutch is automatically activated. In addition, the complete cutting floor, including the knives, can be lowered. First the cutting floor will be lowered automatically followed by the knives. After the plug is cleared, the cutting floor, including the knives, can be brought back into the working position. In extreme circumstances KUHN provides double security by rotor disengagement clutch which separates the rotor drive so the bale can be finished.
Thought-Out Bale Chamber
Producing silage and hay bales each season can be tough and well thought-out designs are demanded.
To compress the crop into bales with a consistent size and density, the baling process has to be as effective as possible while being gentle on the crop.
The 14 PowerTrack rollers equipped with a unique ribbed profile provide optimal traction and compression. Together, with PowerLock, the KUHN fixed balers exceed the requirement in every aspect.
The 14 steel rollers, with an asymmetrical profile, ensure a reliable bale rotation without stoppages. The PowerTrack rollers start to rotate the core of the bale as fast as possible to ensure maximum compression.
Thanks to the asymmetrical profile maximum rotation, traction and compression are assured for producing solid bales.
The high-grade steel rollers are constructed from two overlapped pressed sections which are then fully seam-welded for maximum rigidity. Radial support rings located inside each roller creates additional strength, while the end plate and roller stub shafts are forged in one piece.
Strong rear door hydraulic cylinders work in combination with a hydraulic lock valve to produce maximum bale density. The accumulator levels off peak loads on the rear door and automatically protects from overloading. For those who need diverse bale densities the pressure can be manually set to a maximum of 2,465 PSI.
Each roller has heavy-duty bearings and are bolted onto the side walls of the bale chamber for easy access and maintenance. The FB 2130 has an automatic cam clutch protection on the PTO drive shaft.
Bale Binding Solutions
Use of the double twine tying system reduces the tying cycle time to a minimum. The twine system can be easily programmed with a preselected choice or you can customize your own settings with the baler monitor from the tractor seat.
During the tying process, both twines start at the bale center and overlap themselves, then move to the edges of the bale. Then, the twines gradually move back to the center. At the final stage, the twines overlap to ensure that they are tied and there are no loose ends.
Net Wrap System
The net wrap system provides the bale with a tight and even wrap from edge to edge. The net is fed into the front of the bale chamber to secure an even and direct start. A second net roll storage guarantees sufficient net supply for a long working day.
