Hay and Forage

READY TO WORK WHEN YOU ARE

There’s not much margin when it’s time to cut hay. A few days too late and you start to lose quality and protein. The same goes for baling. No matter what your operation, you can count on Butler’s line of rugged, reliable hay equipment.

Whether your forage or grain harvesting needs call for a rotary disc header, a sickle header or a draper header, you’ll find the perfect match with a Challenger self-propelled windrower.

The WR Series utilizes state-of-the-art electro-hydraulic controls operated by a virtual terminal. This revolutionary technology provides a higher degree of precision control over all the primary windrower functions while incorporating features never offered before on a windrower.

Challenger Mower Conditioners

Model Cut Width
PTS16 Sickle 16′
PTD12B Disc 12′
PTD15B Disc 15′

Challenger disc mower conditioners do it all. They cut through the toughest conditions while gently handling valuable crops, uniformly condition plant stems for fast drying and place the crop into your choice of a windrow or swath.

Features include excellent vertical and radial flotation, dual counter-rotating conveyor augers and 110″ conditioner rolls. The PTS16 offers a half-swaybar dual sickle system that cuts through hay at 1,840 strokes-per-minute. With their center-pivot design, the PTD12 and PTD15 allow you to cut back and forth and on either side of the tractor.

Unlike other machines, Challenger mower-conditioners feature a rugged box-beam mainframe that suspends the header in much the same manner as a self-propelled machine for better ground clearance and outstanding vertical and radial flotation.

No matter what your operation, you’ll appreciate the LB Series large rectangular balers. Each model features an in-line design that keeps hay moving in a straight line from the wide, low profile pick-up through to the bale chute that delivers large solid bales that stack tight for transport or storage.

The SB Series small rectangular balers are like no other on the market today. The “straight chuters” move crop material in a straight line from the pickup to the bale chute. There are no right angle turns or cross conveying mechanisms, which means there’s less leaf loss, greater bale density and improved efficiency.

Claas Jaguar

The JAGUAR family is the best selling forage harvester in the world. They feature powerful drive units from Mercedes-Benz and an electronic injection system which provides optimum response times and low fuel consumption. The engine, engine cooling system and position of the engine, along with the resulting drive concept, are key factors in translating engine power into throughput. Strong and precise precompression is also crucial for achieving huge throughputs. The precompression rollers on the JAGUAR can be pushed open by up to 180 mm, creating a massive intake opening. A damper in the form of a hydraulic cylinder was designed to maintain the even distribution of precompression forces on the upper intake rollers, optimizing the efficiency of the overall process.
