The new Case IH RB565 Premium HD round balers can be equipped with Isobus Class 3 Tractor and Baler Automation.
Paired with a Puma or Maxxum tractor featuring a CVXDrive continuously variable, PowerDrive powershift or ActiveDrive 8 dual-clutch transmission, this system controls the tractor stop, bale wrap and bale-eject functions without operator input.
Operators can take advantage of Isobus Class 3 controls to automatically stop the tractor when the target bale size is reached. From there, net wrap is automatically applied.

When the wrap cycle is complete, the baler tailgate raises and lowers automatically to eject each wrapped bale. Once the completed bale is ejected, the operator can simply move the tractor shuttle lever to the forward position and go.
“When hay-making windows open, baler automation can help reduce bale cycle time, minimise operator stress and increase productivity, even with a less-experienced operator,” says Brian Spencer, Case IH hay and forage marketing manager.
The RB565 Premium HD round baler is equipped with components to efficiently handle wet hay making in an all-purpose, multicrop baler.
“More and more producers are baling wet hay due to shorter production windows and added feed value,” says Spencer. “To accommodate those customers wanting to produce baleage in a 5×6 bale, we added the proven, robust design of our 4-foot silage baler to our 5-foot baler with some additional features.”
