New generation knotters from New Holland

Written by John Swire

New Holland has been pioneering double-knot technology on balers for over 30 years, and based on this experience has launched the new patented Loop Master Knotter which will be introduced on all BigBaler models.

The New Holland LoopMaster gives, high density, a reliable knotter system and low cost per bale. The loop-knotting process eliminates offcuts left loose on the bale (so improving forage quality) and in the field (so reducing environmental impact): in one season on 10.000 bales produced, we estimate the elimination of close to 6 kilometers worth of twine offcuts per season, which are normally left to pollute the ground and crop.

The Loop Master allows the twine to retain 15% higher twine strength, this translates into efficient baling and considerable productivity benefit. Furthermore it reduces the twine cost for our customers by using a lower grade of twine to keep the bales together.

“A strong, reliable knotter paired with clean crop: at New Holland we are extremely pleased to have fulfilled this request coming from our customers.” says Felix Ramuenke, global product manager for Large Square Balers at New Holland Agriculture. “The new LoopMaster™knotter substantially reduces the risk of twine snapping or knotsuntying,that can cause a lot of trouble to the operator – at the same time it maintains the most appreciated features of our industry-leading double-knot system, higher bale density with lower knotting strain and unparalleled packaging performance. Furthermore our customers & the environment benefit from the elimination of twine offcuts left on the bale or across the field”.
