Krone’s range of BiG Pack HighSpeed machines are a cut above the rest. Setting new benchmarks for the industry, Krone’s extensive range offers throughputs as high as 40%, increased speed and exceptional bale density, up to 25% heavier.

The Big Pack Series offers over 8 models across its high speed range. This article only goes into depth on the 1290HDP HS and 1290 HDP XC HS models.

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS

Producing bales 1200mm wide x 900mm high, the Krone BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HighSpeed is the essential tool for farmers or contractors looking for a high quality large square baler.

BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

Krone’s BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS produces bales up to 25% heavier then conventional large square balers. With a flywheel weighing almost 600kg, the Krone BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS is the result of a number of Krone innovations all cleverly packed into one machine.

Features

Active Pick Up

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS & BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

  • The secret of the pick up is the wave-shaped design of the tine bands. You get the effect of tine retraction without the cam track drive and it functions without a complex cam track control.
  • The EasyFlow pick up runs approximately 30% quicker than conventional systems. It also has 60% fewer moving parts, resulting in less maintenance and services costs.
  • Specified with 5 rows of tines that are spaced 55mm apart, the EasyFlow picks up everything at fast forward speeds, increasing your efficiency by ensuring maximum forage pick up.

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS Only

  • Heavy duty gear boxes and drive shafts protected by cam type clutches offer more comfort and productivity. Clutches allow the machine to unblock itself without the need for replacing shear bolts.

Cutter

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS & BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

  • Featuring a large diameter of 550mm, the double tines, (designed in sets of three across the full width of the cutting and feed rotor)  pass the crop efficiently across the knives due to the V-shaped arrangement.
  • Wide hardox plates on the feed tines result in higher throughputs, clean scissor-like cuts and harder wearing. 20mm wide plates guarantee quality forage.
  • X-Cut cutting system has 2 knife drawers with 26 knives. The drawers can be lowered hydraulically and then easily pulled out of the machine, to the side, to install and remove the knives.

Prechamber

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS & BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

  • The Variable Fill System (VFS) unique to Krone offers the highest throughput, 5-phase feed sequence for the bale chamber, offering rock solid and well formed bales, even in small windrows.
  • The packer and feeder tines convey the crop into the feed chamber where it’s collected and pre-compressed. When the feed chamber is completely filled, the feeder rake conveys the crop into the bale chamber.
  • In case of overload the fully sealed and lubricated cam type clutch will disengage. Reducing throttle speed will clear the blockage and the cam clutch re-engages without stoppages or shear pin replacing.

Chamber

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS & BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

  • Produces rock hard bales of uniform densities with tidy and smooth edges thanks to Krone’s massive funnel shaped bale chamber and large hydraulic rams.
  • Features extremely long plungers which support the work of the needles. The plunger on BiG Pack 1290 XC operates at 45 strokes/min ensuring a quiet and smooth operation.
  • All BiG Packs feature over dimensional flywheels for smoother running and less fuel usage. A soft start package is available as an option on 6 Stringer machines.

Knotters

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS & BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

  • Krone has been using double knotters for many years. Extra wide needle rollers safely move the twine into the knotter.  While the needle is traveling into the knotter it’s guided by a roller positioned under the bill hook for the most secure knotting performance.
  • Krone uses compressed air that is forced through pipes to ensure the  entire knotter area is kept clean. This guarantees consistently high reliability even under extreme operating conditions.
  • Dust tight twine boxes easily swing out of the way for ease of maintenance. To ensure the best performance always use Krone Twine.

Electronics

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS & BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

  • Standard on Australian delivered BiG Packs, the CCI IsoBus Touch Screen Monitor offers a range of applications to streamline your business, from entering jobs to creating invoices.
  • Colour, high resolution, 8.4 inch touchscreen.
  • Optional sensors fitted in the side doors transfer their measurements to the terminal, keeping the operator constantly up to date.

Comfort

BiG Pack 1290 (XC) HS & BiG Pack 1290 HDP (XC) HS

  • Heavy duty gear boxes and drive shafts protected by cam type clutches offer more comfort and productivity. Clutches allow the machine to unblock itself without the need for replacing shear bolts.
  • Standard with weight scales, electric bale length adjustment, hydraulic jacks, extra lights on pick up in drawbar, knotter and knotter emergency kit.
  • To create heavy bales you need a big flywheel. Krone have created a soft start kit which is a hydraulic motor that creates momentum in the flywheel to remove the stress on the tractor’s PTO.
