Superfeed silage baler net wrap, castoring pickup wheels, endless belts



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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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
  • 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. Density always matters.
  • 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
  • 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. An additional =, 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: The net wrap cycle begins when the bale reaches full size. The duckbill pivots into the bale chamber between the fixed roll and pivot roll. After making the desired number of wraps are made, the duckbill returns to the home position. Finally, the net knife cuts in an upward motion to cut the net and complete the wrapping cycle.
  • 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 Without ISOBUS Monitors, Available For: Roll-Belt 450, 460, 550, 560 Balers: For those who desire the latest technology, but have older, non-ISOBUS-equipped tractors, or a mixture of both, this option allows you to choose a baler with ISOBUS capability.
  • 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 Choices
  • 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)
  • Premium Laced Belts**: Like endless belts, premium laced belts are also manufactured with constant heat and pressure and feature an enhanced carcass design. Low-profile Alligator® rivet fasteners with stainless-steel Duralink™ flexible pins add to their durability. (**Excludes Roll-Belt 450 Utility and 450 balers)
  • Standard Clipper-Laced Belts: Suitable for all-day baling are the proven Mini-Rough Top (MRT) clipper-laced belts with three-plies of poly fabric.
  • The Bread and Butter of Haymaking Operations: The Roll-Belt 450 and Roll-Belt 460 are the backbone of countless haymaking operations. From basic baling to crop cutting, there’s a four-foot baler to fit the needs of your operation.
  • SuperFeed™ Rotary Feeding System Option: If you’re looking for a baler with the capacity of a rotary feeder and a drop floor for easy unplugging, but don’t need the ability to cut crop, then the SuperFeed™ option is right for you. You can take in dry hay, silage crops, and straw with ease because of the large, 18-inch-diameter rotor that’ similar to the one found in CropCutter™ balers. Single-point feeder tines are arranged in a “W” pattern on a rotor shaft for uniform feeding from the pickup to the bale chamber.
  • Dry Hay: For basic, no-frills baling look no further than Roll-Belt 450 and 460 Dry Hay models. Two versions are available for each model: with a 1.5M SuperSweep™ pickup or a 1.8M ActiveSweep™ pickup.
  • Top-Performing Silage Special Versions: Silage Special versions are designed to effectively bale crops at high moisture to create quality silage bales. Make no mistake: you can still bale in dry hay conditions, too. Silage Special balers come standard with: Dual-cam pickups for increased durability in heavy crops; Endless belts for lower maintenance and superior performance; In-feed discs to reduce power consumption; Looped tailgate rolls, scrapers, and rubber back wrap roll to eliminate crop buildup.
  • CropCutter® Rotary Cutting System: To maximize your baling output and bale density, choose the CropCutter® rotary cutting system. In contrast to Bale-Slice, this system cuts crop during the entire formation of the bale, as opposed to after the core is formed. The 15 knives can be resharpened and replaced, and can process crop into two-and-a-half-inch lengths from the core to the outer edge of the bale. Cut crop packs into a bale more tightly. A denser silage or high-moisture bale leads to greater fermentation and less spoilage. For bedding materials, this cutting process increases absorbency and makes bales easier to shake apart. For dry hay or bedding that is stored outside, this additional density creates bales that shed water and draw in less moisture from the ground, aiding in greatly reducing spoilage. ? A spring-loaded protection system on each knife helps prevent damage from foreign matter. In the event that debris or a crop plug enters the baler, the standard drop floor provides you with an easy method for fast removal.
  • Pickup Options: A number of different pickups are available to meet your needs. From classic pickups in dry hay to professional-grade pickups to meet the high-capacity demands of the industry-leading CropCutter® baler, none of our pickups leave your important crop behind.
  • CropCutter® Pickup: Roll-Belt 450 and 460 balers equipped with the CropCutter rotary cutter option receive a pickup that’s suitable for a professional, full-time farmer or custom operator who demands the most out of their baler. This 2.07M-wide pickup has five solid-steel tine bars that are segmented for quicker, more cost-effective replacement should service be required. Four, double-plate reel spiders provide excellent support in the heaviest crop feeding, and 160, six millimeter, curved, rubber-mounted tines provide the utmost durability for this professional-grade pickup.
  • SuperFeed™ Pickup: If the SuperFeed option is selected, a heavy-duty 1.8M-wide pickup is featured on the baler. This pickup has five steel tine bars that are pinned in the center for easier servicing. Mounted on the tine bars are 140, six millimeter, curved, rubber-mounted tines. Three, double-plate reel spiders provide support for optimal crop feeding.
  • ActiveSweep™ Pickups: The 1.8M ActiveSweep™ pickups are also available on 450 and 460 dry hay and silage balers, as well as 450 Bale-Slice™ balers. Like the pickups found on 560 models, you can select between heavy-duty or standard-duty pickup reels. Heavy-duty reels feature three double-plate reel spiders that hold five solid steel tine bars with 140 rubber-mounted teeth in total. Standard-duty reels come with three, single-plate spiders affixed to four tine bars with steel coil, curved, double tines, providing 112 tines in total. Regardless of which version you choose, both reels are pinned in the center for easy serviceability.
  • SuperSweep™ Pickup: For customers desiring a proven pickup, select the 1.5M SuperSweep pickup on dry hay and silage models. This four-bar pickup has 96 curved, shot-peened, steel tines that are suitable for picking up fine, short-stemmed crops.
  • Windguard Options: Two windguard styles are featured: tine style and a roller style. For dry hay applications, the economical tine option (shown) performs well. For silage hay, straw, or any crop in high volume, the roller windguard is an excellent choice as it provides better control of springy crops as it feeds into the baler. For even greater crop feeding control on SuperFeed and CropCutter balers, partner a top-assist feedroll with the roller windguard.
  • Double Down for Density [Roll-Belt 460]: When equipped with a SuperFeed or CropCutter rotary feeder system, Roll-Belt 460 balers are available with an optional, dual-cylinder density system. This addition replaces the coil spring arm on the left side of the baler with a second hydraulic cylinder to increase bale density by 5% compared to the single-cylinder system.
  • Cut-Out Clutch for Added Protection: With balers equipped with either a SuperFeed or CropCutter rotary system, you have the choice between a 540 or 1,000 RPM gearbox with a cut-out clutch for overload protection.
