Unrestricted crop intake to meet your capacity needs
The pick-up on the FB 119 maximizes the full capacity of the machine. With a working width of 167 cm, the machine is capable of working in all regular windrows. Straight pick-up tines help release the crop and reduce crop wrapping. A cam track pulls the tines straight down in the rearward position to avoid wrapping. The pick-up is suspended in chains and can be optionally equiped with pick-up support wheel to follow the ground structure.
OPEN THROAT intake
The OPEN THROAT design offers an unrestricted intake. There are no fingers or rotor tines which can hinder the flow and therefore limit the intake capacity. The cam-steered pick-up directly pushes the crop into the bale chamber.
Consistent, firm round bales
Producing firm, well-shaped bales requires expert engineering of the machine. To compress the crop into bales with a consistent size and density, the baling process has to be as effective as possible while being gentle on the crop. The POWERTRACK rollers start to rotate the core of the bale as fast as possible to ensure optimal compression.
Fast, perfect bale formation
The 14 steel rollers with an asymmetrical profile ensure a reliable bale rotation without the risk of stopping. The high-grade steel rollers are constructed from two overlapped, pressed sections which are then fully seam-welded for maximum rigidity. Radial support rings located inside each roller create additional strength, while the end plate and roller stub shafts are forged in one piece.
The FB 119 driveline layout is simple and easy to maintain. It consists of only 3 heavy duty chains. It is secured via a shear-bolt protection on the PTO drive shaft. To ensure a long lifetime of the chains, the KUHN FB 119 can be equipped with a chain oiling system, which is activated at every binding cycle.
Secure binding solutions
Firm bale shape
One of the final steps in creating the perfect bale is the binding. It is one of the most crucial steps! The less time required to bind the bale, the higher the baling operation output. KUHN binding solutions guarantee reliable and secure net binding. All FB models can be equipped with a combination of twine and net binding.
When using the double twine binding system, the binding cycle time is reduced to a minimum. In the twine binding cycle, both of the twines start at the bale edge and overlap before moving to the centre of the bale. In the centre of the bale, they overlap again. This ensures that the twines are fixed and that there are no loose ends.
AT 10 control box
The in-cab control box provides clear and easy-to-read information and gives full command of the baling process and audible and visual alarm signals when the bale is ready. A choice of automatic or manual start of the binding process can be pre-selected, as well as the number of net layers or twine binding. Various job counters are integrated and the status of the machine is constantly monitored. With a magnet and hook on the back of the control box, it can be installed easily in each tractor cab without any tools.
Optimal visibility and safety
The FB range can be equipped with a KUHN camera system to provide optimal visibility and safety around the machine. The kit consists of a separate monitor and a camera.
To improve the pick-up functionality, pneumatic pick-up support wheels are available which follow the ground contours.
The bale kicker (or bale ejector) ensures a secure bale ejection by preventing the bale from getting stuck underneath the tailgate.
Chain lubrication and greasable roller bearings are available as an option. The roller bearings can be greased from four conveniently reachable greasing banks.
