We run two Krone BigPack 1290 HDP II square balers. We use these to bale hay and straw. The Big Packs are high density models meaning they have a high throughput and produce a high-density bale with more crop packed in. This means that the bale count is lower but more crop per bale which reduces handling time and making a fast-efficient straw service. The balers have eight double knotters which produce tight, dense 120cm x 90cm 8 string bales.
