LEGENDARY CUT QUALITY
Full header flotation and the reliable Haybine® cutterbar design assures close, even cutting every time.
New Holland’s plug-free roll-pressure system delivers smooth, thorough conditioning action.
Crop and field conditions change, and New Holland makes it easy to adjust the cutting and conditioning action of your Haybine mower-conditioner to match your needs.
RELIABLILITY YEAR AFTER YEAR
High-volume haymakers and small family farms alike depend on Haybine performance season after season.
SMOOTH, RELIABLE CUTTING
Haybine® mower-conditioners lead the pack in cutting through heavy, down and tangled crops. That smooth, reliable cutting starts with over-serrated, bolt-on knife sections, adjustable sickle hold-down clips and square back-bar guards. And Haybine sickle drive systems are designed to provide clean cutting, less wear and vibration, with minimum maintenance.
DUAL, COUNTER-STROKING SICKLES (H7150)
Dual, counter-stroking sickles deliver smooth, clean cutting on the Model H7150 and HS 14-, 16- and 18-foot heads. They’re gear driven from both sides, operate with less vibration and are easy to service. A 1800-strokes-per-minute sickle speed plus a full 3-inch stroke combine for fast, high-capacity cutting.
ADJUSTABLE CUTTING ANGLE AND HEIGHT
It’s easy to make a mechanical adjustment to knife and guard angle on the Model 488 to suit crop and field conditions. Hydraulic cutting angle adjustment is standard with the H7150 trail frame, allowing changes on the go, right from the tractor seat, which is ideal for working in rocky fields. Adjustable header skid shoes allow for easy changes in cutting height.
CONSISTENT CROP FLOW AND UNIFORM CONDITIONING
The high-capacity, center-pivot H7150 is equipped with an HS Series Haybine® sickle mower-conditioner head that features a fully adjustable five-bat reel that smoothly sweeps crop from the wide 14-, 16-, and 18-foot cutterbars into the crop auger where it is uniformly fed into the conditioning system. Reel speed is variable using an adjustable sheave thatprovides an effective adjustment of reel tine tip speed to compensate for crop conditions and ground speeds.
THE HEART OF EVERY HAYBINE—CONDITIONING
Get gentle but thorough conditioning from New Holland chevron-design intermeshing rubber rolls. Their unique spiraled pattern helps grip the crop and keep it moving. The lugs crack the stem every three to four inches to release moisture for fast drydown.
UNIQUE ROLL-PRESSURE SYSTEM
Don’t get bogged down with crop plugging. The New Holland torsion-bar roll-pressure system applies near-constant pressure to the crop, even as the crop mat thickness changes, delivering the most consistent conditioning available. When the rolls reach their maximum opening, the pressure decreases automatically to permit slugs of crop to pass through without plugging.
EASY NO-TOOLS PRESSURE ADJUSTMENT
A turn of a crank is all it takes to change conditioning pressure to match field conditions. No tools are required. The critical roll-gap and roll tension can be adjusted for optimal conditioning, as well. For legumes, the roll should be maintained between 1/64 and 1/16 inches for optimum drydown.
MODEL H7150 and HS SERIES HAYBINE HEAD: CONDITIONING SYSTEM OPTIONS
For the commercial hay producer, a range of conditioning roll options includes our versatile chevron-design intermeshing rubber rolls. The gentle handling and full-stem crimping and cracking action promotes fast drying while protecting delicate leaves for maximum forage quality. Choose durable chevron-design intermeshing steel rolls when cutting green feed forage crops, extra-tall grasses, and cane-type crops. The steel chevron-design feeds crop uniformly and all-steel construction resists wear in abrasive crops and conditions. If you’re considering full-stem crushing for fast drying, high-contact rolls are specially machined for an exact fit for complete stem conditioning. These urethane rolls feature a machined groove to grip and move crop efficiently without sharp angles that can damage valuable leaves.
