John Deere's C451R and C461R Combination Balers are a great option for producers who utilize individual wrapped or in-line bagged forage for silage. The combination balers utilize the V-Series Variable-Chamber Baler with 7 foot wide pickup and MaxiCut precutter with up to 25 knives to size the length of cut. Two levers on the side of the baler give the operator the ability to engage one of two knife banks, or both, to achieve the desired length of cut.

The high-capacity feeding system features a large-diameter, fully integrated converging auger to ensure smooth, consistent flow of all types and condition of forages into the MaxD bale chamber. This results in more uniform bale size and density for improved storage and handling. Operators can choose where to drop the bale or select one of two automatic drop options.

A rear-view camera and extra lighting packages are available to help operators monitor wrapping and unloading functions and improve visibility when baling in low-light conditions. An optional tilt system is available to turn bales on end upon release from the wrapping station to help protect the film from being punctured by crop stubble.
