Roll-Belt™ Round Baler Roll-Belt™ 450 Utility



  • Ready To Roll?: Whether you're a part-time farmer occasionally baling 20 acres or a custom operator with 20 customers, there's a New Holland Roll-Belt™ baler to suit your needs. In fact, there are nearly 20 different models for you to choose from. From 4' X 5' to 5' X 6', uniform, dense bales are produced in every size and crop condition.
  • Easy Ownership: Roll-Belt™ 450, 460, 550, and 560 balers possess the newest design enhancements and smartest technology to ensure that they remain in the field. What does that mean for you? A 20% increase in belt strength, belt driving force, and capacity.
  • Stop The Squat: From the moment the pickup tines touch the windrow, Roll-Belt balers pick up all of your valuable crop. Curved-tine pickups get all your hay, and feed crop from edge to edge of the bale chamber for easy-to-handle, square-shouldered bales.
  • Bale Like Never Before: Numerous options on Roll-Belt round balers are available to provide you with peace of mind and simplify your baling experience. ISOBUS compatibility paired with a 10" color touchscreen IntelliView™ monitor eliminates the need to run multiple wires into the cab of your tractor. Balers with SuperFeed™ and CropCutter® rotary systems now feature a drop floor that can easily be operated from the comfort of your cab.
  • Higher Density+ More Capacity = Reduced Storage Losses: The industry's densest bales combined with EdgeWrap™ net wrapping yields weather-resistant bales that reduce storage losses. Download the New Holland Bale Wrap App to learn more.
  • Open Your Harvest Window with CropSaver™: Is your cut hay still a little too wet to bale? No problem! All New Holland Roll-Belt round balers can be equipped with CropSaver hay preservative to effectively bale at moistures up to 30%. That means you can start earlier, work later, and get your hay baled, even when the sun doesn't shine.
Roll-Belt™ Design Features
  • A Design Packed with Innovation Yields Bales Packed with Hay: The key to quickly forming perfect cores in any crop condition is New Holland’s proven combination of rolls and belts. The design of Roll-Belt balers utilizes heavy-duty steel rolls in both the front of the baler as well as in the floor of the bale chamber. The rolls are combined with short, tough belts in the back to deliver fast, consistent core formation and tight, uniform bales regardless of the crop you’re baling. This proven combination also forms the densest bales in the industry. By packing more of your valuable crop into each bale, you save time and money in numerous different ways.
  • Why Does Density Matter: From the moment you start baling to the moment the last bale is unloaded at your storage location, there are numerous benefits to making dense bales are many. Making fewer but denser bales in the field: • Reduces ground compaction and plant damage, which promotes faster regrowth and higher tonnages for the next cutting. • Reduces your baling time, and handling, wrapping, and transportation costs. • Improves bale weathering and reduces loss because a dense bale sheds precipitation and resists absorbing moisture from the ground.
  • How The Roll-Belt™ Design Works: 1) To start the process of making a bale, the pickup gathers crop from the ground. The floor roll feeds crop from the pickup into the belts. The floor roll also carries the majority of the bale’s weight, which reduces stress on the belts and lacings for longer life and lower maintenance costs. Constant action between the floor roll and the bale provides superior feeding compared to designs that feed directly from the pickup into the bale. Additionally, when a bale is being formed, its center of gravity is behind the centerline of the floor roll to allow bales to naturally fall out of the chamber when ejected, unlike competitive designs. 2) Next, the starter roll helps turn the crop and start the core. The ribs of the fixed roll aid in keeping the bale rotating. This roll also transmits power to the remaining upper rolls: the pivot roll, the ribbed stripper roll, and the follower roll. The function of the three rolls is to assist in rolling material and forming the bale’s core. The stripper roll is also ribbed to strip material off the apron belts and direct it back into the bale. 3) As the bale grows, the top rolls pivot forward. The belt tension arm (I) also rotates to allow the bale chamber to expand. The belt tension cylinder (J) and belt tension spring (K) deliver reduced belt tension at the start to ensure positive core formation, even when baling short, dry crop. 4) When the bale reaches full size, the tractor is stopped by the operator. The wrapping mechanism starts automatically.
Tying and Wrapping Features
  • Simplified Tying and Wrapping Traditional Twine Tying: For classic baling, redesigned twine wrapping systems are available on all models. You can load six active balls of twine in the front twine carrier on Roll-Belt™ 450 and 460 balers. On Roll-Belt™ 550 and 560 balers, you can use eight active balls by removing the dividers. As an option, four additional twine balls (two per side) can be stored on each side of the baler.
  • Easy Threading: Threading twine has never been easier thanks to a simple threading bar (shown raised). After loading the twine balls, lower the threading bar for easy access to the threading guides. After tying and threading three balls to the left and three to the right, raise the threading bar to the operating position. Twine is routed from the twine box along the right side of the baler to the twine tubes.
  • Smart Enhancements: The twine mechanism now features dual twine tubes that pivot on a single mount to feed twine into the bale chamber. Instead of an actuator, a motor is utilized to lower amperage draw for the system. Additionally, this motor also provides smoother actuation and allows for dynamic twine spacing changes.
  • How Many Mississippis Does It Take: Six seconds That’s the time it takes to net wrap a bale with a Roll-Belt round baler. Net wrap is a proven solution that reduces baling time and produces bales that are easier to handle and more weather-resistant. The EdgeWrap™ system is wider than the bale chamber to provide over-the-edge net wrapping when using standard-width net. Putting net over the edge of a bale not only protects it, but also helps better retain its shape.
  • Reliable, Efficient Net Wrapping: A simple, shorter, more-efficient net travel path makes the industry’s most-reliable system even more dependable because of reduced misfeeding. The net knife and wrapper duckbill assemblies are separate, eliminating multiple linkages and knife-link adjustments. The net knife and wrapper are also controlled by separate motors to reduce amperage draw and eliminate the need for a separate battery harness. Finally, the net knife moves up through the net, pulling it into the knife for a more positive cutting action.
  • Easy Front-Loading System: Loading the active and double non-active rolls of net wrap is easy as a result of the front-loading net wrap system and loading supports found on Roll-Belt 450-through 560 balers. The net tube now pivots down and forward to decrease the loading angle. A support tube has also been added to assist with loading a new, active roll of net. The net brake lock is a reverse locking tab, which eliminates the need for a separate locking pin. A second, non-active roll can also be stored in the back of the baler to provide you with more than enough net for day-long baling.
  • The Net Wrap Cycle: 1. The net wrap cycle begins when the bale reaches full size. 2. The duckbill pivots into the bale chamber between the fixed roll and pivot roll. 3. After making the desired number of wraps are made, the duckbill returns to the home position. 4. Finally, the net knife cuts in an upward motion to cut the net and complete the wrapping cycle.
Monitors Features
  • Intuitive Bale Command™ Monitors: Whether you’re a part-time farmer in need of the basic controls found on the Auto-Wrap™ II monitor or a professional, full-time farmer requiring the fast hookup and advanced capabilities of the IntelliView™ IV monitor, there’s a monitor that’s right for your application.
  • Auto-Wrap™ II Available For: Roll-Belt™ 450 Utility: A basic, simple monitor that’s well-suited for entry-level baling, the Auto-Wrap™ II system provides you with automatic control of the wrapping cycle. A buzzer lets you know when it’s time to tie off the bale and when the tailgate is latched. Select manual or automatic operation and adjust the preset number of wraps with the flip of a switch. Not ready for net just yet? Upgrade to standard net/twine at a later date for fast, reliable net wrapping with a dealer-installed kit.
  • Bale Command™ II Available For: Roll-Belt 450 Utility, 450, 460, 550 and 560 Dry Hay Balers: Twine-only balers with standard electronics receive Bale Command II with graphics and simple controls standard. The sleek design and soft-touch keypad allow for user-friendly interaction. The select dot-matrix screen is 10% larger than previous models, providing operators with easy-to-read information while baling. This monitor provides three pre-programmed wrap patterns, one custom wrap pattern, twine arms that move in a start-stop motion to apply wraps, and one resettable bale count.
  • Bale Command™ II Plus Available For: Roll-Belt 450, 460, 550, 560 Balers: You can select the Bale Command II Plus monitor for an enhanced baling experience with twine-only, net-only, or net and twine balers with deluxe electronics. Similar in appearance and controls to the Bale Command™ II, Plus models provide operators with enhanced graphics, four pre-programmed wrap patterns, one custom wrap pattern, pulse-width modulated twine arms moving in a continuous motion to apply wraps for better twine-spacing consistency, 20 resettable bale counts, and compatibility with numerous dealer-installed accessories.
  • ISOBUS Baler Without Monitor Compatible With: Tractors with IntelliView™ III or IV Monitors - Available For: Roll-Belt 450, 460, 550, 560 Balers: For New Holland tractors or Big Balers with an IntelliView III or IV monitor, you can choose to equip your baler with ISOBUS capabilities to utilize your existing monitor, creating the ultimate baling experience. This eliminates the need to install wires or an additional monitor inside the cab of your tractor. ISOBUS also provides you with easier navigation between screens and enhanced storage capacity for improved record keeping.
  • ISOBUS Baler with Factory-Supplied IntelliView III Monitor or Parts-Supplied IntelliView IV Monitor: Compatible with: tractors equipped with an ISOBUS connector and a monitor capable of controlling implements via the Virtual Terminal (VT); Available for: ROLL-BELT 450, 460, 550, 560 BALERS; This option is for customers who have tractors equipped with an ISOBUS connector - simply plug the baler into the tractor and use the existing tractor monitor.
  • What Is ISOBUS: ISOBUS, or ISO 11783, is the universal protocol for electronic communication between tractors, implements, and computers. The objective of this procedure is to create common communication between tractors and implements, regardless of brand. This also aids with data transfer for some software that may be used on farms. An additional benefit of ISOBUS is “plug-and-play” capability between implement and tractor, which eliminates the need to have numerous wires and monitors in the cab of your tractor.
Belt Choice Features
  • More Driving Force and More Choices: Enhancements on Roll-Belt™ balers have led to an impressive increase of 20% in belt driving force in comparison to previous BR7000 models. How? In addition to repositioning the backwrap roll to improve driving efficiency and reduce belt slippage, an updated selection of belts is now available.
  • Premium Endless Belts: For ultimate durability and low maintenance, select the award-winning premium endless belts, which have a splice-free design for maximum consistency and low maintenance. These belts are manufactured with constant heat and pressure to eliminate belt flaws. The belt carcass construction enhances side-to-side rigidity, reduces tearing, and has sealed edges to reduce fraying issues. This design allows the belts to remain extremely stable under dynamic conditions, such as when the density system is maxed out or at core startup. All these features translate into superior belt tracking. The surface pattern is also improved for cleanout while maintaining the best overall balance between sure grip and gentle crop handling. Even better, these belts are backed by a three-year, 15,000 bale New Holland warranty. *Excludes Roll-Belt 450 Utility and Roll-Belt 550 Balers
