Pre-cutter for JD 580

JOHN DEERE 580 round balers can now be equipped with a 2m (6.5ft) pick-up and a pre-cutting mechanism – the same unit available for the companys fixed chamber 575 model.

Available as an option, such systems have become increasingly popular with farmers looking to increase the density of bales and cut wrapping and transport costs.

The variable chamber 580 produces bales 1.17m (3.8ft) wide and with diameters from 0.6m to 1.55m (1.9ft to 5ft). Price with 2m pick-up, pre-cutter and optional net-wrap is £22,906. Twine-only machines cost £20,939. &#42
