MF RB Series Round Balers - Fixed Chamber Range

MF RB 3130F fixed chamber balers feature 1.5 cubic meter bale chamber with 18 Powergrip rollers and mechanical tail-gate lock ensuring consistent bale shape and density while Hydroflexcontrol, two stage protection system keeps you going faster automatically preventing up to 80% of potential blockages.

An extremely reliable and high performing range of baler models tailored to your specific needs producing high density hay, silage or straw bales, while remain simple, easy to set up and adjust.

Key Benefits

High speed pick-up

High speed pick-up

Higher operating speeds are possible with the Massey Ferguson camless pick-up design. With fewer moving parts, the camless pick-up is quieter, simpler and more reliable. Low maintenance and less adjustments save time and increase productivity. The pick-up system has five tine bars with each one being spaced only just 64mm apart, providing higher capacity and a smoother even feed at high speed. On the Massey Ferguson round balers, the pick-up is positioned very closely to the rotor, therefore improving crop flow and reducing the risk of blockage.

Xtracut for optimum cutting performance

Xtracut for optimum cutting performance

Designed for optimum performance, Massey Ferguson Xtracut can be equipped with 13, 17 or 25 knives. Cutter units are fitted with the longest knives on the market, making sure that no material will pass through uncut. Xtracut 17 and 25 feature two sets of hydraulically operated knife banks with separate control from the cab depending on customer requirements.

Hydroflexcontrol - Two stage protection system

Hydroflexcontrol - Two stage protection system

The first stage of Hydroflexcontrol allows movement of the front part of the feed chamber floor and will automatically prevent up to 80% of potential blockages and will keep you going without unnecessary downtime. Should a major blockage occur, stage two of Hydroflexcontrol is activated by the operator, and is cleared by lowering the rear of the feed table floor hydraulically from the cab, allowing for material to easily pass through, therefore minimizing downtime.

Bale chamber

Bale chamber

The bale chamber is made up of 18 Powergrip rollers which ensure an effective grasp and quicker bale rotation for higher density and improved bale shape. Rollers with 10 ribs are made from a seamless solid tube. They are the industry benchmark for durability and performance, known for their proven design and capability to withstand the harshest environments. The new, improved chamber has a ‘spiral’ form with slightly reduced diameter at the front thus improving feeding and bale rotation, increasing density and net grip when wrapping.

Wrapping options

Wrapping options

Perfect wrapping of perfectly formed bales is provided by the Varionet system, saving cycle time, tying materials and preserving bales for safe handling and storage afterwards. The tried and tested Varionet net wrapping system features a special net tensioning and spreading device that is capable of dealing with various widths and types of net, allowing for fast wrapping of bales from edge to edge or over the edge.

Xtracut 17 and 25 feature two sets of hydraulically operated knife banks with separate control from the cab depending on customer requirements. The operator can select: a single knife bank, both knife banks or disengagement of all knives.

Hydroflexcontrol

Hydroflexcontrol

To maximise efficiency in the field and minimise downtime from crop blockages, the MF Round balers are fitted with the unique Hydroflexcontrol protection system which works in two stages:

Hydroflexcontrol - Stage 1

Hydroflexcontrol - Stage 1

The first stage of Hydroflexcontrol allows movement of the front part of the feed chamber floor and will automatically prevent up to 80% of potential blockages and will keep you going without unnecessary downtime.

Hydroflexcontrol - Stage 2

Should a major blockage occur, stage two of hydroflexcontrol is activated by the operator, and is cleared by lowering the rear of the feed table floor hydraulically from the cab, allowing for material to easily pass through, therefore minimizing downtime.

Easy Loading System

Easy Loading System

Fitted as standard, the Easy Loading System (ELS) allows one spare roll to be carried on the baler. Roll replacement can be made in a matter of minutes, thus extending your time in the field and increasing output.

Round Balers - Pick-Up Position

Round Balers - Pick-Up Position

On the MF round balers, the pick-up is positioned very closely to the rotor, therefore improving crop flow and reducing the risk of blockage.

Five Tine Bars

Five Tine Bars

The pick-up system has five tine bars with each one being spaced only 64mm apart, providing higher capacity and a smoother even feed at high speed.

Variotwin Twine System

Variotwin Twine System

The optional Variotwin twine system offers simple and economical bale tying. The unique Variable Speed Control allows for additional twine revolutions on the bale edges, securing bale ends and increasing overall tying speed.

Varionet Net Wrapping System

Varionet Net Wrapping System

The tried and tested Varionet net wrapping system features a special net tensioning and spreading device that is capable of dealing with various widths and types of net allowing for fast wrapping of bales from edge to edge or over the edge.

The number of unique and patented features make our balers stand out from the crowd. The MF RB 3130F is available with the E-Link Control unit as standard; the E-Link Pro monitor with ISOBUS technology is optional for the MF RB 3130F Xtracut; Balers can also be specified with an ISOBUS connection for utilising tractor monitors.
E-Link Control

E-Link Control

The E-Link Control unit, offered as standard, allows the operator a great overview of the key baler processes with all adjustments made through the monitor. Its High Definition screen provides clear working images.

E-Link Control Terminal Functions

E-Link Control Terminal Functions

Knife selection, Bale pressure adjustment, Bale size adjustment, Net layer adjustment, Net start/stop/pause, Visual bale chamber filling, Softcore bale on/off, Bale counter, Total bale counter, Customer settings, Sensor and actuator settings.

E-Link Pro Monitor

E-Link Pro Monitor

The E-Link Pro monitor with integrated ISOBUS technology features a large bright screen which offers great visibility of multiple parameters, giving the operator more information and control of the baler.

E-Link Pro Wizard

E-Link Pro Wizard

Specific field or customer information, such as the number of bales or hours worked, can easily be set and collected with the Wizard and later exported via a USB connection for easy management of records and further performance analysis.

ISOBUS

ISOBUS

Utilising a single in-cab terminal in the tractor for all implements reduces cab clutter and can make for simpler and more accurate control by drivers who may carry out a wide range of operations with different machines.

Powersplit Gearbox

Powersplit Gearbox

The Powersplit gearbox equally divides and transfers power to drive the rotor unit on one side and the roller drives on the other, reducing the overall power requirements by simplifying the drivelines.

Centralized Grease Banks

Centralized Grease Banks

Regular and sufficient lubrication of roller bearings is extremely important, particularly in adverse conditions. Centralized grease banks for roller bearing lubrication are located in convenient positions for easier access and reduced service time.

Automatic Chain Lubrication

Automatic Chain Lubrication

Automatic chain lubrication with individual adjustment for each chain guarantees sufficient oil supply, reduces maintenance time and extends chain service life. For added durability the highest quality chains are used throughout the baler.

Bearing Housing Design

Bearing Housing Design

The bale chamber can experience extreme loads with forces from all directions. The clever bearing housing design allows some movement of the rollers to eliminate major axial loads occurring during operation.
