The KUHN FB 2130 fixed chamber round baler has proven itself as easy to operate and maintain, combined with an outstanding reliability. Thanks to the 14-roller bale chamber combined with the INTEGRAL ROTOR design, it offers a perfect crop transport and bale shape in all circumstances.
The all-round FB 2130 baler is designed for baling a wide range of forage materials, from straw to wet silage. Choose between a non-cutting OPTIFEED rotor and 14-knife OPTICUT cutting rotor. POWERTRACK rollers provide a large surface area for maximum compression, resulting in firm bales.
To best suit your operation's needs, the KUHN FB 2130 comes equipped with your choice of net or twine binding. You can conveniently control this baler from the comfort of your tractor seat with the in-cab AT 10 control box.

Your benefits

An intake system that can handle every crop condition

230 cm wide pick-up

Optimal crop pick up

The cam-steered pick-up on the FB 2130 maximizes the full capacity of the machine. With a working width of 230 cm, the machine is capable of working in all windrows and will not let you down, even in the toughest conditions. Straight pick-up tines help release the crop and reduce crop wrapping. Camless-shaped crop guides result in an efficient and gentle pick-up. A cam track pulls the tines straight down in the rearward position to avoid wrapping, making this the only hybrid pick-up on the market today. Therewith, it can handle every kind of crop, from long straw up to the shortest autumn silage or crops with fragaile leafs. The pick-up features standard pendulum frame and optional pivoting pick-up wheels to allow the pick-up to adapt to changing field conditions. <br />To better meet your operation's specific needs, there are two intake options available. Choose one of our INTEGRAL ROTORS – the non-cutting OPTIFEED rotor or the 14-knife OPTICUT cutting rotor.


Available for the FB 2130 model is our INTEGRAL ROTOR technology found on OPTIFEED and OPTICUT models. This simple, maintenance-free intake system guarantees an enormous throughput capacity at all times. The short distance between rotor and pick-up tines maintains consistent crop flow. The design of this force-fed intake makes higher forward speeds possible for increased productivity and reduces crop damage.

Non-cutting versions

The OPTIFEED rotor design, with single feeding tines and integrated augers, helps even out the swath by spreading the crop evenly for consistent bales every time.

Cutting: OPTICUT Rotor

KUHN OPTICUT (OC) cutting rotors are designed for unlimited intake capacity and excellent cutting quality. OC cutting rotors, with elliptical-shaped rotor tines, are acknowledged by users as one of the best cutting systems on the market. The silage is guided and drawn down to the knives from an early stage which improves flow and cutting performance while requiring minimal force - this also prevents unwanted blockages.<br />OPTICUT 14<br />The INTEGRAL ROTOR, with the 14-knife OPTICUT system, is designed to even out the swath and force-feed the crop into the baler for maximum throughput. The 14-knife OPTICUT cutting system provides a theoretical cutting length of 70 mm. Each single knife is spring-protected against damage from foreign objects.

DROPFLOOR & Rotor disengagement

The floor and knives can be hydraulically lowered from the comfort of the tractor cab in the case of a rotor blockage. After the blockage is cleared, they can easily be brought back into work position.
In extreme circumstances, double security is provided by a standard rotor disengagement. This will enable the operator to bind and eject the bale from the chamber before continuing.
Both the rotor disengagement and DROPFLOOR technology ensure fast clearance in the case of a blockage and enables you to quickly continue your baling operation.

Consistent, firm round bales

The powertrack profile of a roller


Producing silage and hay bales each season can be tough and well thought-out designs are demanded. 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.

Reliable driveline

The FB 2130 are balers which have proven themselves as easy to operate and maintain, combined with an outstanding reliablity. Thanks to the proven design of the machine, the baler offers a perfect crop transport and bale shape in all circumstances.<br />Each roller has heavy duty bearings and is bolted onto the side walls of the bale chamber for easy access and maintenance.The FB 2130 has an automatic cam clutch protection on the PTO drive shaft. The FB 2130 is equipped as standard with central greasing banks for<br />the roller bearings.<br />To ensure a long lifetime of the chains, the KUHN FB 2130 can be equipped with a chain oiling system, which is activated at every binding cycle.

Secure binding solutions

Firm shaped bales

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.<br />All FB models can be equipped with a combination of twine and net binding.

Net binding

The binding cycle is crucial during baling. Less time needed for binding means a higher output. To optimise this process, main adjustments can be done via the AT 10 control box. The number of wraps can be pre-set. On the KUHN FB balers, the binding is placed at the front of the machine, resulting in a perfect view of the binding process from the tractor seat. Changing the net roll can be done easily whilst standing safely on the ground next to the machine.

Twine 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.
