Baleskiis Bale Liners from New Holland

The BaleSkiis® baler liner was developed to eliminate the problems associated with all sizes of square balers. It is the only significant improvement in the elimination of square baler problems since the square baler has been put into wide-spread use. While eliminating the problems of the baler, it also improves the function and cost effectiveness of the power source that runs the baler (tractor or engine). It improves the efficiency and use of the bale retrieving, transporting, and stacking equipment, by making a more uniform and compact bale. Because of the BaleSkiis® design it does so with no moving parts and, in fact, reduces wear on the baler and power source.

We developed the BaleSkiis® baler liner and used and tested it extensively in our own haying operation in a wide variety of forages and haying conditions. After having such good results with our own haying equipment, we decided to back up those results with official tests. It was tested by the Alberta Farm Machinery Research Centre in Lethbridge, Alberta under PAMI and their guidelines.

The results confirmed our tests and also showed that there is a bonus of 30% more leaf retention when using the BaleSkiis® Baler Liner. Leaves containing more nutrition and protein are a BIG plus. With more of them retained, the more valuable the hay is with added protein and pounds per acre.

The New Holland Genesis T8 With PLM Intelligence

The New Holland redesigned T8 is built for the way you work. Growing production demands, resource challenges, labor shortages, weather uncertainties… these are just a few of the obstacles you face every day. You need a dependable partner in the field to help you simplify things. One that knows your operation inside and out. That connects you effortlessly to real-time resources and insights. That adapts to the way you work… not the other way around.

Customizable Control— When the time comes to deliver precision results in the field, there’s no room for a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Every operator has their own unique preferences and requirements with their IntelliView display. So, we built your controls package around the revolutionary idea that custom adjustments should come standard. Variable hydraulic technology lets you control all eight remote valves from any of 15 in-cab hydraulic buttons. Up to nine configurable buttons let you customize armrest controls to the operator or the task at hand.

Improved Visibility— Whether you’re in an open field or on a busy road, awareness of your surroundings is essential. We’ve reduced in-cab obstructions, placed your InfoView™ monitor in direct line-of-sight and even installed a nose mounted camera and a rear facing camera for road safety and in-field work. Welcome to your new horizon. Additional cab lights and controls let you configure custom lighting patterns, choose from three different lighting packages and turn night into day. Redesigned cab and instrument layout provides you with nearly 360-degrees of visibility. Strategically placed cameras offer additional safety, visibility and peace of mind. In the field or on the road.

Enhanced Comfort— With all the hours you spend in the field, shouldn’t work feel a little more like home? We think so. That’s why we’ve added more accessible storage, power ports, HVAC vents, egress lights and the most comfortable seat outside of your living room. Multi-zone HVAC system ensures optimal comfort, control and visibility no matter the climate or season. Redesigned SideWinder™ Ultra armrest offers multi-directional, independent motion to provide nearly infinite comfort configurations.

Advanced Support— When there’s no time for “downtime,” you need a tractor that measures productivity and precision in seconds and inches. We engineered New Holland Remote Assistance to provide remote connectivity, advanced diagnostics, and remote display viewing whenever, and wherever you need it. Customer-to-Vehicle connectivity allows you to run your farm business from the cab, the farm office or the other side of the world. Dealer-to-Vehicle connectivity helps you minimize downtime with proactive support, remote monitoring and diagnostics, and in-field software updates. Advisor-to-Vehicle connectivity lets you stay in touch with nutritionists, agronomists and other experts to improve decision-making on the move.

Intuitive Simplicity— True innovation doesn’t require an advanced degree to operate. To help you harness all of the powerful features and technologies built into the new T8, we developed a user-friendly interface that feels as natural and instinctual as agriculture itself. Improved button orientation and handle ergonomics put precision command in your hands. Enhanced joystick design lets you control tractor transmission functions as well as hydraulic remotes. Bluetooth connection allows you to control phone and radio through armrest or display. Easily split screens, expand tiles, and set up tasks right from the homescreen on the new IntelliView 12™ in-cab display.

Kivi-Pekka Rock Pickers are Hard as Stone

By using a Kivi-Pekka stone picker, you will be able to avoid causing wear and tear on your other farming machinery. The Kivi-Pekka stone picker will also help increase your crop yield, as there will be no stones to restrict the cutting height when harvesting, prevent harvesting or damage your machinery.

The machine is customized and manufactured according to the customer’s specifications. The KIVI-PEKKA, manufactured by Peltuote in Finland, is suitable for use by small co-operative groups and contractors, thanks to its durability and speed. In addition to field work, the KIVI-PEKKA can also be used for land clearance, road renovation and foundation work, golf courses and landscaping. Kivi-Pekka stone pickers are now sold in 43 countries, where they are used to collect stones from fields covering hundreds of thousands of acres.

Key Features:

  • Kivi-Pekka stone pickers do not require a large tractor. 70hp is required for the 4m (157″) working width model, and 80hp is required for the 5m (197″) and 6m (236″) models.
  • Maximum stone size is 50cm (20″) in diameter. The KIVI-PEKKA Flex Drum makes it possible to collect larger stones than when using the standard lifting drum. The lifting drum transmission is mounted on its own frame. This allows the frame and entire lifting drum to rise up together, thus making it possible to pick up stones 50 cm(20″) in diameter. The hydraulic pressure accumulator in the Flex Drum assists in raising the lifting drum when it comes upon a large stone. The drum can also be raised into its up position manually using hydraulics. The Flex Drum suspension dampens shocks to the sieve and tines, thus extending their service life. Thanks to the Flex Drum, there is no need to reverse rotation – the drum is simply raised to pick up large stones without having to stop.
  • Durability across the machine. Kivi-Pekka is equipped with strengthened drive belts, and power is transmitted to the lifting drum via straight drive belts, which reduces the power requirement. The belts do double duty as an overload protection mechanism, while also absorbing the shock from the stones that come into contact with the machine, thus preventing it from affecting the tractor through the transmission. The belts are highly resistant to wear and tear and require very little maintenance. Because the drivetrain contains no expensive parts that need replacing, the operating costs of the Kivi-Pekka stone picker are kept low.

Standard Equipment:

  • Standard tire size 560/60R22.5
  • All PTO shafts
  • Sieve for the stone tank
  • Sieve for the lifting drum
  • HD tines for the rotors

  • Other tire options: 710/45R22.5, 700/50R26.5, Walking tandems 500/50R17, Walking tandems 500/55R20
  • Hydraulic rotor lift
  • Flex Drum for 50 cm(20″) stones
  • Extra strong lifting drum tines (13×50)(1/2″x2″)
  • Rotation guard
