Large Square Balers

Must have in the field.

The CLAAS name stands for professional equipment and the QUADRANT is no exception. Square bales and throughput come naturally with all CLAAS square balers. Make quick work of hay, straw, or biomass.

Baling heavyweight.

It's very simple, the higher the throughput, the faster the field is cleared, and baling more pounds per cubic foot achieves higher tonnage per hour. In short, the productivity and cost-effectiveness of the QUADRANT is outstanding. The long bale chamber and plunger driven by the large main gearbox has the potential to produce dense dales at high throughput rates. This is a great advantage for straw or dry and wet hay harvesters alike.

Perfectly shaped flakes.

Depending on the consistency of the crop and windrow size, three pre-chamber modes can be selected via the ISOBUS control terminal to achieve maximum output at all times. Only the QUADRANT uses two paddle shafts and sensors to activate the stuffer cycle. The packer rakes crop into the pre-chamber until full, then pushes the flake in front of the plunger. The results are firm, well-shaped and conveniently stackable bales while maintaining maximum throughput.

Consistent density.

Only CLAAS offers an automatic control system for baling pressure and resulting bale density. The variables for automatic baling pressure are the load on the baler frame and the twine tension. With this system, even an inexperienced baler driver has no problem operating the machine at maximum capacity, hour after hour. The first step is to enter the bale density in the menu, then the machine calculates the load limit based on the crop and twine quality.

Cut easily.

The knife drawer for the ROTO CUT and FINE CUT simplify maintenance with automatic knife cleaning function, access from both sides of the baler, and automatic lowering in the event of a blockage. Lowering and raising of the rotor floor can be controlled from the operator terminal or the side of the baler. Each knife has individual spring protection for the longevity of the rotor. Blank knives can also be installed to customize the length of chopped crop.

Watch the weight.

A long baling chamber, high plunger frequency, and automatic baling pressure control ensure high bale density in all conditions. Now you can also set the weight for the finished bales with the optional bale weighing system. Four sensors precisely measure the bale weight right on the bale ramp and record it to the monitor. This gives contractors and farm owners alike an overview of how many tons were produced in a particular area. It also means that, where required, they can invoice based on tonnage in a way that is transparent for those involved.
