New John Deere balers unveiled at Grassland


A new John Deere 800 Series mower-conditioner plus three new 400 Series fixed chamber round balers, including a wrapping baler model, can be seen working for the first time in the UK at this year’s Grassland & Muck 2014 event at Stoneleigh in May.

The 830 centre-pivot mower-conditioner is available in working widths of 3 or 3.5m, with a choice of impellers or adjustable rubber rollers for the conditioning process. As an exclusive feature, the modular cutterbar allows high-speed mowing, and has been engineered to duplicate the load conditions of a self-propelled machine. The mower’s balanced design and high ground clearance also increase field performance, while a new floating suspension system allows the machine to closely follow ground contours.

The 830 is equipped with six discs and 58 preloaded tines, which significantly increase capacity and crop flow under varying harvesting conditions. Even in heavy and wet crops and at high working speeds, the parallelogram design of the conditioning hood maintains the optimum distance between the impeller tines or rollers and the hood at all times.



The F440R round baler and C440R wrapping baler are suitable for large livestock farms and contractors who produce more than 3000 bales per season and focus on silage production. These are premium specification balers with long-life components, and have been specially designed to operate well in wet silage conditions.

There is a choice of 2 or 2.2m pick-ups feeding a high capacity inline MaxiCut HC rotor with 13 or 25 knives. In addition to the rotor, these machines utilise a number of other components from the 900 Series variable chamber round baler, including a five tine bar pick-up with heavy-duty bearings, and a full width drop-floor system which enables the operator to remove blockages instantly, from the tractor cab. Cab monitoring and control systems include a GreenStar Display 1800 or new Implement Display 1100.

The F440M round baler is a multi-purpose machine aimed at small to medium size farms. Designed to produce between 1000 and 3000 bales of hay, silage or straw per season, this model offers a choice of 2m RotoFlow HC or MaxiCut HC 13-knife rotors, and is available in MultiCrop or Silage Special versions. It also features the 900 Series baler’s high performance feeding system, new driveline and rotor, stronger shielding, wider and bigger tyres and other improved components.

All three 400 Series machines offer a choice of CoverEdge or Edge to Edge netwrap or double twine wrapping systems.
