A compact build for an efficient crop flow
The pick-up on the KRONE Bellima round baler stands out for its compact design. The small diameter rotor with four rows of tines together with the adjustable crop roller mounts close to the bale chamber and operates extremely efficiently, feeding even short and wet crop in a continuous flow into the chamber – a requirement for higher outputs and consistently shaped bales. The working depth is restricted by refitting a pin. Ground contour following is given by height-adjustable gauge wheels.
The pick-up for Bellima F 125: Our Bellima F 125 model features a 1,400 mm (4'7") pick-up (work width to DIN 11220) that is controlled hydraulically and locked at the desired depth. The small gap between the pick-up and the bale chamber optimizes the intake and flow of the crop.
EasyFlow with packer
Standard specification on Bellima F 130
- This pick-up works at a 1,800 mm (5'11") width –
which is ideal for harvesting wide swaths
- The packer ensures a continuous flow of crop
- Feed augers on both ends optimize the crop flow into the machine
- Optional tires on gauge wheels give superior and quiet running
The extra wide EasyFlow pick-up version with packer is standard specification on the Bellima F 130 model. Its packer works closely to the tines and the starter roller inside the baling chamber, providing a smooth and consistent flow even of short material into the machine. Boosting the machine’s filling rate and capacity, the packer is a tremendous boost for the machine’s overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Active packer: The packer actively transfers the crop from the pick-up to the starter roller, filling the baling chamber evenly and uniformly and making the pick-up more effective.
A gripping system
- Produces consistent 1.20 m (3'11") diameter bales
- Provides effective bale roll, eliminates bale stop, reduces loss
due to fragmentation
- Requires a low tractor input
- Is simple by design with just one drive chain
A better spin on baling: The enclosed bale chamber with endless chain-and-slat elevator forms the incoming material to high-density and firm bales – layer by layer. Providing an excellent bale feed, the elevator starts rolling the material at a very early stage so that the baling cycle finishes earlier as well. At the same time, this elevator creates a firmer core for higher densities and weights as well as high-quality silage and in addition reduces bale handling effort and transport.
The KRONE chain-and-slat elevator. The ‘grippy’ system for straw, hay and silage. Round balers are harvesting straw, hay and wilted silage in a wide variety of conditions around the world. The challenge is high and well-known and calls for a machine that offers absolute operational reliability. Fragmentation is a risk in straw and hay where the crop was exposed to sustained drought, whereas wilted material may actually be wet and heavy after periods of sustained rain. An added issue is ‘stickiness’ in crop high in sugar. The chain-and-slat elevator responds to all these multiple conditions and requirements and delivers absolutely dependable. This elevator never lets you down, giving a gentle but firm grip on the crop, ‘meshing’ with the bale and rolling it non-stop while keeping the pressure high.
The art of refinement
Bellima – the art of refinement. Buying a Bellima means tapping into KRONE‘s vast experience and expertise gained in decades of baler manufacturing. We at KRONE understand farmers’ needs. Our round balers operate around the world and have proven excellently in a wide variety of conditions. In addition to providing high bale densities, KRONE balers are extremely robust, simple by design and perfect in specification. Last but not least, they offer superior operational reliability.
Positive bale starts: The profiled starter roller takes care of an instant bale start, optimizes the entire process and takes load off the rear door, which is ideal when baling heavy silage bales.
Pressure indicators on either side: Baling pressure indicators on either side of the machine show the current loading inside the chamber so the operator can correct his steering and ensure the chamber is filled uniformly – for uniform bale densities and shapes.
Little helpers: An audible / LED alarm is available as an option to indicate acoustically and visually when the baling pressure is right so the operator can trigger the twine wrapping cycle.
More bales per hour: The optional KRONE Mini-Stop tray serves as bale ejector and collecting tray! It allows the baler to start the next baling cycle while the rear door is still closing after the bale was ejected. The small detail increases your output by up to six bales per hour!
Twin twine wrapping system
Twins work twice as fast
- Two threads cut down on the wrapping cycle
- Well-shaped bales as tying starts / ends in the middle of the bale
- Select the thread spacing
- Easy-to-use system
Perfect wraps for perfect bales
- Short cycles - produce more bales per hour
- Positive wrap start – short feed system
- Bales break up quickly and easily in the shed
Less fuel per bale. The net wrap system is simple by design and offers superior functionality. A net wrapping cycle is shorter than a twine wrapping cycle so that the machine is able to put out more bales per hour. Higher throughputs free up time for other jobs and cut the tractor‘s consumption per bale. The net wrap system accepts KRONE excellent rolls with total net lengths of up to 3,600 m (11,811').
Perfect: The net wrap assembly is at the front end, where it is in excellent operator view and holds 2,600 m or 3,600 m (8,530' or 11,811') net rolls. There is room for one spare roll.
