Significant upgrades boost the MF 2200 New Gen Series large square baler performance
Building on the success of its predecessor, the MF 2200 New Gen Series brings significant updates and new features to further enhance performance.
The large square baler range retains four models covering three bale sizes. New model numbers have been introduced.
These square balers make dense, well-formed bales, and are renowned for their reliability, longevity and low cost of ownership.
Exceptional cutting capabilities
The MF 2233 has a cutter with up to 17 knives, while the MF 2234 and MF 2234 XD all have up to 26 knives. The knives are arranged in two banks which can be simply engaged and disengaged from the cab using the terminal and spool valve. With all knives engaged the chop length is 43.5mm and using a single knife-bank gives a chop length of 87.0mm.
Massive capacity, industry leading bale density and superb shape all stem from the award winning pre-compression chamber design. Only when the chamber is perfectly full will the trip door activate and the stuffer fork powers the fully formed flake into the bale chamber.
The heaviest and strongest plunger in the industry
Driven by an enormous gearbox with massive strength, the plunger is connected via two heavy duty connecting rods. Contained in these are load cells that measure the load on the plunger face. Information from the load cells is used to control the automatic density control system and also provides the operator with driving arrow guides if uneven swaths are encountered.
Optiformᵀᴹ bale chamber
The bale chamber on the new generation MF 2200 Series is engineered to produce bales of perfect shape and incredible density. Its design provides massive strength and continuing reliability year after year. The MF 2234 XD and the MF 2244 balers feature the Optiformᵀᴹ bale chamber, which ensures ‘Optimal Formation’ of the bales on these high capacity and high density models.
The double-knotter system pioneered at the Hesston factory has an unrivalled record of reliability, tying many millions of bales all over the world for over 40 years. It continues to perform this vital role in the MF 2200 Series balers.
Technology & Innovation
Polypropylene Wrapper Bands
By pivoting around the lower auger, there’s less to lift. Durable polypropylene wrapper bands further lighten the load, reduce noise and are quick and easy to replace.
ProCut chops the crop to your required length and the packer tines ensure high capacity crop transition into the pre-compression chamber.
The packer system ensures consistent flake formation producing perfect bale shape regardless of windrow shape and density.
Only when the chamber is perfectly full will the trip door activate, and the stuffer fork powers the fully formed flake into the bale chamber.
Load Cells within Connecting Rods
Contained in these are load cells that measure the load on the plunger face. Information from the load cells is used to control the automatic density control system and also provides the operator with driving arrow guides if uneven swaths are encountered.
Double Acting Density Rams
Double acting density rams apply pressure to both the side and top chamber doors to give consistent bale density all controlled automatically via the Baler Monitor.
The baler is pre wired in readiness for a video camera and the baler monitor is full colour and video compatible.
Bale Weighing System
The Integrated Bale Weighing System weighs the bale as it exits the chamber onto the roller bale chute.
