QUADRANT assembly

The QUADRANT 1150 to 3400 large square balers are produced on one belt, beginning with the axle and the sturdy main frame, which forms the bale chamber. The baling ram is then installed in the main frame, and the baler is completed with the packer tines and the packer tines channel. The high-performance rotor of the QUADRANT 3400, with a diameter of 86 cm, is mounted in front of the main frame and, together with the cutting floor and the knife group selection unit, forms the ROTO CUT chopping system. At the same time, the pre-assembled needle yoke is integrated.

The next unit to be installed in the baler is the entire drive unit, with main drive, ram and rotor drive, as well as the large flywheel, direct drive mechanism from the main drive to the knotter.

The knotters with controlled twine clamp and central lubrication are then mounted. This includes the TURBO FAN for knot cleaning. Before the basic setting of the tying device is performed, the knotter drives and the eccentric wheels for the accelerator drive of the needles are installed.

After assembly of the power belt rotor drive, the test bench check is performed. All machine sequences are simulated. The CLAAS COMMUNICATOR II assumes the control during the test. Here, the baler is driven not via a CLAAS tractor, but instead via a drive unit with an electric motor. The hydraulic and electric functions are likewise controlled by this unit.
