From wet silage to dry hay to straw and stalks, the new Case IH RB565 Premium HD round baler provides producers the flexibility to bale a full range of crops. The RB565 Premium HD round baler is equipped with components to efficiently handle wet hay making in an all-purpose, multicrop baler, making the most of short baling windows. This new baler expands the RB5 series lineup.

“More and more producers are baling wet hay due to shorter production windows and added feed value. To accommodate those customers wanting to produce baleage in a 5x6 bale, we added the proven, robust design of our 4-foot silage baler to our 5-foot baler with some additional features,” said Brian Spencer, Case IH hay and forage marketing manager.

 The new RB565 can be equipped with ISOBUS Class 3 Tractor and Baler Automation. Paired with a Puma® or Maxxum® tractor featuring a CVXDrive™ continuously variable, PowerDrive powershift or ActiveDrive 8 dual-clutch transmission, this system controls the tractor stop, bale wrap and bale-eject functions without operator input. Operators can take advantage of ISOBUS Class 3 controls to automatically stop the tractor when the target bale size is reached.

From there, net wrap is automatically applied. When the wrap cycle is complete, the baler tailgate raises and lowers automatically to eject each wrapped bale. Once the completed bale is ejected, the operator can simply move the tractor shuttle lever to the forward position and go.
