Tractor-Baler Automation simplifies baling experience
A single manual action; system manages the rest TBA awards
The optional Tractor-Baler Automation (TBA) makes baling easy. This exclusive system manages most of the baling process and gives the customer the following advantages:
- High baling comfort a single action to bale instead of four.
- Error proof baling - even after 10 working hours, the system does not forget any action; a true advantage for an inexperienced driver.
- Constant bale quality - same diameter bale after bale
- Constant productivity - no reduced efficiency due to operators fatigue.
When used with a John Deere ISOBUS tractor, electric selective control valve (E-SCV), and (IVT™) transmission, the system will be able to:
- Stop the tractor when bale size is reached
- Wrap the bale
- Open the gate
- Close the gate when bale is unloaded
The only action remaining is to forward reverser and manage the steering.
If the John Deere tractor is not equipped with IVT but has E-SCV and ISOBUS, opening and closing can be automated.
A single touch on SCV, brakes, or reverser will disengage the automation. In the same way, automated open/close can be momentarily stopped when unloading in hilly conditions.
Tractor-Implement Automation is an exclusive green on green advantage. This advanced technology option has won awards at SIMA and Agritechnica farm equipment show in Europe, a true cost/value guarantee.
NOTE: to run through fully automated mode, a John Deere Isobus tractor with E-SCV and IVT is required. A baler activation key and a tractor activation key (different) have to be ordered.
