Features

Heavy-duty (HD) bale chamber provides density and durability

Rolls manufacturing provides long lifespan
Three-lip plastic sealThree-lip plastic seal
Fully greased bearingsFully greased bearings

In order to provide high-quality rolls, the F440R rolls are not two half shelves welded together. John Deere only uses tubes that are ribbed to better grip the crops. The dedicated manufacturing process produces an accurate cylindrical shape, avoiding vibration.

All rolls benefit from greased bearings on both sides, not only on the chain side. A three-lip plastic seal locks off debris, silage juice, and moisture from bearings.

Depending on their positions, the rolls do not all carry the same load and stress. Some rolls feature specific reinforcements, providing extended reliability:

  • Rolls numbered 14 and 17 transmit the load of the main drive to the secondary chains (front bale chamber part and tailgate). Due to this specific stress, both rolls feature an inner reinforcement (bell shape) on the left-hand side.
  • Rolls numbered 10 and 11, located on the bottom, sustain the weight of the bale. To carry heavy loads, both rolls have three inner reinforcements in addition to the bell on the left-hand side (same as rolls 14 and 17).

The balers allow operators to maximize the quantity of material or minimize due to shipping and storage needs.The bale diameter can be easily adjusted from 1.25 m to 1.35 m (4.10 ftto 4.43 ft)by gliding a skid. The continuous settings allow an accurate and quick choice. The bale diameter is controlled by contactless sensors, which provide long durability and error proof monitoring.

The bale density and size are not directly linked on the F440R and C440R Balers. Depending on the crop type, operators can independently choose a small-diameter bale with high density, a 1.30 m (4.27 ft) with large density, or large diameter with low density. A pressure gauge located on the front of the baler communicating the density is linked to the density harness. The density is easily adjusted by a knob located on the front black grid. No tool is required.

The density harness is a closed and isolated circuit, meaning that there is no continuous oil flow requiring extra power consumption.

Exclusive concept increases machine durability and forage quality

Integrated solution optimizes weight and performance
C440R sub-assemblyC440R sub-assembly

The C440R is a single-operator machine. While past silage making required one operator for baling and another wrapping, the C440R gathers all operations in a single place.
In order to provide the best productivity and forage quality, all baler functions are developed from John Deere operator’s well-known products:
- The bales are formed by the new F440R Baler
- When wrapped, the bales are transferred to the wrapping area by the patented Transport Table System (TTS)
- The plastic film is wrapped by a two-arm system, the same as the 900 Series wrapping baler solution.
- The overall machine is handled by a rolling frame with tandem axle.

The TTS, rolling frame, and the electric harness are specially designed for the C440R Balers:
- The component durability is aligned to have a similar wear level for the life of the machine.
- The weight of the components are optimized
- The management software maximizes overall productivity

TTS offers smooth bale transfer

Smooth bale handlingSmooth bale handling

The bale transfer from chamber to wrapping area is a critical step in the C440R cycle. The TTS is designed to is:
- Limit stopped time
- Limit time needed to move bales to the wrapping area
- Avoid bale shape damage. Deformation can cause air pockets and spoilage.
- Limit shock transferred to the machine frame to maintain durability
- Maintain machine balance during bale transfer, even on slopes
- Provide a smooth bale unload on the ground to avoid film puncture

The TTS helps to avoid bale kick that causes shape damage and stress to the frame, and gravity transfer that causes bad bale tracking on slopes. It also uses a patented gliding table positioned under the bale chamber. The railways gently move the table to the wrapping arms, avoiding ball roll. Four wide and endless belts and four guiding rolls maintain the bale in position to allow film preservation.

Because of the smooth motion, the quantity of net required to wrap is minimized.

High-speed wrapping arms increase overall productivity

Manual controlsManual controls

The C440R features a high-performance wrapping system. The two-arm wrapping device offers:
- 750-mm plastic roll width capacity to provide a fast wrapping cycle
- 70 percent pre-stretching setting to limit film consumption and increase forage quality by avoiding air pockets
- High rotating speed up to 35 rpm.
- Proportional valve and film breakage sensor as a base to provide a constant wrapping quality no matter the film breakage or end of roll.
- High-efficiency safety system to stop the wrapping process in case of interfere with a turning satellite
- Emergency circuit-breaker shutting all hydraulic and electrical functions
- Manual controls located close to the wrapping device, allowing easy maintenance and fast plastic roll replacement
- 12-roll autonomy for continuous uptime

Optimized cycle management increases productivity

Variable arm speed profileVariable arm speed profile

By managing the C440R subassembly design, John Deere is able to maximize overall productivity. A few details that impact the C440R performance are:
- The table does not wait until the end of the tying process to reach the unloading position. Nearly five seconds after beginning of the tying process, the wrapping table automatically reaches the right position to minimize stopping time.
- The table speed varies pending on position and the speed, not compromising the bale stability. The table accelerates during the first centimeters and decelerates in the last centimeters.
- The wrapping arm speed also varies based oncycle status. In order to avoid downtime caused by film breakage during the arm launch, the armsgently accelerate during the first rotation while speed decreases during last turn to provide a high-quality film cut.

In order to boost baler versatility and efficiency, several options can be added to the C440R wrapping device :
- A bale tilt allows the film wrapped bales to unload flat, which results is lower film puncture risks reduced bale rolling risk, and time saving for handling.
- A rubber mat provides smooth bale unloading and reduces film puncture, especially with alfalfa or when dumping in automatic mode.
- A steep-slope kit increases baling capacity in hilly conditions. A roll located on the rear of the wrapping table prevents bales from dropping..
- A working light illuminates the wrapping area. Plastic roll changing is fast and easy even when baling by night.

Wide-choice of dumping modes enhance efficiency, forage quality, and safety
Dumping mode choicesDumping mode choices
Grouper modeGrouper mode

Depending on the crop type or field conditions, changing the dumping mode can significantly impact productivity, forage quality, and overall safety. For example:
- When baling silage alone in a flat field, the automatic dumping mode provides maximized productivity.
- When baling silage alone in hilly fields or during demonstration, the manual dumping mode offers increased safety and avoids accidental unloading of bales.
- When baling alfalfa, dumping while the baler is stopped to avoid film puncture.
- When baling hay or straw and not using plastic wrap, grouping two bales limits handling time.

All of these functions and dumping mode can be selected from the monitor.
