Kuhn has launched the latest version of its round baler, the FB 3130. The MkII FB range of fixed chamber balers includes a number of new features that improve baling speed, quality and efficiency.
The latest FB balers are available with two different intake rotors – Kuhn’s Optifeed or Opticut 14 systems – both of which share the same 2.30m pick-up width for maximum productivity.
The Optifeed rotor uses double feeding tines and integrated augers to provide an even and consistent flow of crop into the bale chamber for improved bale consistency. The Opticut 14 rotor is fitted with 14 knives that provide a cutting length of 70mm and that even out the swath by force-feeding the crop into the baler for maximum throughput.
The new FB uses Kuhn’s Pendulum pick-up to gather the densest of swaths at high forward speeds and uses height-adjustable guide wheels for accurately carrying the pick-up over every ground contour.

The FB is also equipped with Kuhn’s Powertrack system that uses 18 asymmetrical, ribbed steel rollers to rotate and tightly compress bales as they are being produced.
The FB MkII range also features Kuhn’s hydraulic Powerlock rear door cylinders that work in combination with a hydraulic lock valve to produce maximum bale density. Fast door opening and closing means more bales per hour and improved efficiency.
