Simple feeding with proven technology provides a long and quiet ride
Cam track design offers the best versatility
Left – pickup with cam track / right – cam-less pickup Left – pickup with cam track / right – cam-less pickup

The F441M Baler provides operators with a single baler to harvest all kinds of crops, from gliding straw to short, sticky silage. Cam-track technology provides an efficient solution for such needs. The traditional stripper design provides reduced space between the pickup tines and rotor feeder, while the tine motion helps to avoids pinching.

The cam-less technology requires long strippers, creating a dead-zone between the tines and rotor. Additionally, fixed tines can easily pinch crops in sticky conditions, causing plugs that need to be manually removed.

Four tine bars match good picking capacity Four tine bars match good picking capacity

The F441M Balers feature a 2.0- or 2.2-m (6.5- or 7.2-ft) pickup and galvanized strippers for an extended lifespan. The four-tine bars mounted on sealed ball bearings and equipped with 5-mm (0.2-in.) diameter tines meet the picking capacity expected by small and medium size farms.

High-capacity (HC) rotor limits plugging risk
Left - HC rotor / right - classic rotor design Left - HC rotor / right - classic rotor design

The F441M features an HC rotor design already used on the previous F440M model. This simple design offers several key advantages:

  • 480-mm (18.9-in.) diameter rotor and converging augers (largest on the market) to provide high feeding capacity
  • Limited distance from pickup to rotor tines to reduce plugging
  • Reduced number of bearings and distributed loads along the rotor to increase reliability
  • Hardox® wear plate tines to provide 80 percent or more resistance to wear and foreign objects (e.g., stones) versus traditional S700 grade steel
RotoFlow HC and MaxiCut™ HC 13 rotors are available on the F441M RotoFlow HC and MaxiCut™ HC 13 rotors are available on the F441M

The F441M is available without a precutter (RotoFlow HC Premium feeder). MaxiCut HC Premium 13 knives is proposed as alternative solution for operators searching for a regular precutter with 80-mm (3-in.) space between knives. In order to provide quality cutting, knives are individually secured by springs to protect against foreign objects and are double heat treated for longer durability. The full set of knives is controlled by a hydraulic valve conveniently located on the front of the baler.

 

Knife slot fillers set is delivered as standard with all machines featuring precutter. When using the MaxiCut™ High-Capacity (HC) Premium pickup without knives, dust and harvest matter can fill knife slots. This keeps the  knives from returning back to the cutting position, and plugs have to be manually removed to free the knives.

 

The 13-knife slot fillers take the place of knives when not cutting crops. Drop-floor holes are then filled, allowing quick and easy knife re- engagement. When cutting, the knife slot fillers are stored and locked in a convenient bracket located on the right-side of the baler.

Advanced drop floor or simple rotor wrench offer unplugging choice
Exclusive drop floor removes the worst plugs Exclusive drop floor removes the worst plugs
Rotor wrench offered as an economical solution for RotoFlow HC Premium Rotor wrench offered as an economical solution for RotoFlow HC Premium

As with the high-spec F441R Baler, the drop floor makes removing plugs easy, even those under converging augers. This exclusive design covers the rotor width, so wherever a plug occurs, the unplugging device decompresses the crops and feeds the plug into the baler.

 

Parallel kinematics provides a consistent 40-mm (1.6-in.) space on the entire drop floor, eliminating narrow pinch points like front- hinged drop floors have.

 

The drop floor is easily controlled by a hydraulic valve located on the control panel. The drop floor is standard for the F441M, when equipped with the MaxiCut HC Premium 13.

 

For a RotoFlow HC Premium equipped baler, the drop floor system is proposed as an option. Even without this system, the F441M can be unplugged without the operator reaching their hands into the pickup. If this happens, the operator needs to declutch the rotor, put the wrench on the rotor, and reverse to remove the compressed crops.

Versatility and performance provided by choice of MultiCrop bale chamber
MultiCrop gate option offers a versatile solution
F441M with MultiCrop tailgate combines advantages of rolls and conveyor technologies F441M with MultiCrop tailgate combines advantages of rolls and conveyor technologies

This baler provides versatility to small and medium farms because of its ability to harvest wet and dry crops.

Due to the slats conveyor integrated in to the tailgate, the MultiCrop gate efficiently grabs dry crops. Even in hot brittle barley straw, bales are constantly rotating from the beginning of the process to the tying process.

Combined with a front chamber featuring powered 12 ribbed rolls, the F441M MultiCrop provides high fixed chamber baler versatility.

Conveyor technology at its best
Noise absorber makes conveyer silent Noise absorber makes conveyer silent

Thanks to clever design, the MultiCrop gate eliminates:

  • Bad conveyor tracking caused by foreign objects
    • Rails protect the conveyor chains from stones caught in the crops. The stones can be released by opening the tailgate
  • Steel-on-steel contact, creating traditional conveyor noise.
    • The MultiCrop tailgate decreases noise by having rubber conveyor tracks that absorb most of the noise and vibration.
Reduced maintenance increases uptime
Tensioner optimizes chain lifespan Tensioner optimizes chain lifespan
Slats can be easily changed Slats can be easily changed

Increasing the number of chains is often linked to high maintenance and reduced lifetime. The MultiCrop gate has two idlers that optimize chain tension to enhance chain lifespan.
 
An aperture on each tailgate side allows the operator to check and replace slat bearings. Due to heavy-duty slats (35-mm [1.4-in.] diameter), the bending of parts is rare and the apertures can be replaced without dismounting the conveyor.

User-friendly and efficient tying system provides quality bale
Easy net roll loading
Loading ramp assists roll handling Loading ramp assists roll handling

Even with long net rolls, a roll is changed at least twice a day. Operators lifting 40-kg (88-lb) rolls over 2 m (6.6 ft) can cause serious injury. A convenient loading ramp allows the operator to easily push the heavy net rolls to the wrapping system and to the roll storage device.

 

The F441M Baler has one roll installed in the device and one roll, up to 300-mm (11.81-in.) diameter, in the storage.

Simple and easy net tracking
Very simple net tracking Very simple net tracking

Once placed in the wrapping device, the net is easy to install. Declutch the net system and push the net between the feeding rolls. Re-engage the system and close the shielding. The process is completed in less than a minute.

Easy access to platform
Convenient ladder access from both sides Convenient ladder access from both sides

A convenient loading platform accessible from both sides of the machines allows the operator to easily put in place the roll and setup the bale tying system.
