Kubota has announced the introduction of a revised range of variable chamber round balers for the 2021 season.
Designated Plus-series, the updated models comprise the BV5160 and BV5200 versions, and the Flexiwrap baler-wrapper combination which uses the BV5160 with 14-knife crop chopping system.
The changes have been implemented to improve output and lower operating costs, and combine a redesigned roller crop press capable of lifting higher in heavier crops, with strengthened side support arms with improved limit stops. Enhanced protection against crop wrapping is also provided for the crop press bearings, which have now been mounted inside the roller.
In addition, the pick-up reel has been refreshed to improve cleaning in wet conditions, the baler driveline will have increased wear resistance, and overall maintenance on all models has been simplified to improve maintenance time.
Maximum bale sizes are 1.65m and 2.0m depending on model, and prices start at £39,908 for the BV5160 SuperFeed model.
