New Holland launches new Roll-Bar 125 fixed chamber round baler

  • The new Roll-Bar 125 is the successor of the best-seller in the fixed chamber baler segment, the BR6090. It builds on the solid DNA of its predecessor, with the proven Roll-BarTM bale chamber system, and further improves its performance, serviceability and durability with new features

New Holland Agriculture has introduced the new Roll-Bar 125 baler, which carries over the perfect price-performance balance that is the hallmark of the BR6090 and combines it with a host of new features. Available in two versions, Rotor Feeder and Rotor Cutter, the new baler introduces a new, modern styling with a large side shield that provides easy access for maintenance operations. The Roll-Bar 125 stands out for its excellent flexibility: the combination of large floor roll, starter roll and the high tensile steel bale rotation bars of the proven Roll-Bar bale chamber system ensures early core formation and positive rolling action in a wide range of crops – from dry straw to wet silage – and conditions

Felix Ramuenke, Global Product Manager for Large Square Balers & Fixed Chamber Round Balers, says: “The best-selling fixed chamber baler on the market has a worthy successor in the Roll-Bar 125, which remains true to its strong heritage DNA. With new additional features and options, it is the right choice for farmers who are looking for a robust, simple and diverse baler, which feels home in all major crops and conditions – from dry straw up to wet silage.”

The most visible new feature of the Roll-Bar 125 is the side shield introduced with the new styling. Its robust weld structure ensures durability, while the top door hinges, wide opening and gas strut supports provide easy access to service points for maintenance. It also provides protected space for storing spare net rolls. The flowing lines of the new styling are highlighted by the new decals. The main frame of the baler has been modified and a shock absorber has been added on both sides between the main frame and the tailgate to ensure a smooth closing. The front lights have been repositioned to accommodate the new-design side shields.

Under the hood, the new baler introduces improvements that deliver greater durability and reduce maintenance costs: high-grade drive chains with chromized pins and hardened plates, which have a longer life cycle, and new sealed type bearings that prevent dust contamination. A wellproven Hydraulic Rotor Reverser with a free-run clutch is now available on Rotor Feeder models, for easy unplugging when there is a rotor blockage.
