Provides For A Uniform, Well-Shaped Bale

Huge 283-sq in (1,826-sq cm) feed opening allows SB balers to swallow large, uneven windrows. From here, a uniform, well-shaped bale is produced by the dependable Case IH feeding system:

  • High-throughput rotary feeding system delivers high capacity in any crop
  • Heavy-duty, double-rotating tines overlap to feed crop smoothly and continuously
  • Adjustable double-packer fork folds hay into the bale chamber
  • No-plug feeding system effortlessly moves crop from the pickup area to the bale chamber with minimum shatter loss


Easy Bale Density Control
All SB Series balers allow for easy bale density control by adjusting the tension applied to the bale chamber. For manual density control, tension springs are an economical choice.

  • Provides "set-it-and-forget-it" convenience 
  • Ensures consistent bale weight and density



Handle Challenging Baling Conditions
Case IH small bales hold up to handling from the rack to the elevator and from the barn to the bunk.
