A proud heritage

Over 60 years ago, New Holland introduced the first successful automatic hay baler. Farmers rushed to buy it, and that's the way it continues. You can rely on your New Holland baler to be produce consistent bales every time. There are three different 14 x 18 models, plus a high-output 16 x 18 model. Choose the one that meets your needs. All are designed to provide years of reliable service.
Ask those who know. Commercial haying operations and operators who custom-bale for horse farms put their trust in the proven performance of New Holland balers. They know their livelihoods depend on making consistent bales that meet the exacting demands of horse and livestock owners.
New Holland bales are the only choice for hand-feeding. You can quickly separate the flakes of New Holland bales, and with New Holland's consistent bale density, you know exactly how much feed each animal receives.
A super-wide, Super-Sweep pickup uses curved teeth to get the short fine crop other pickups miss. Clear pickup visibility ensures plug-free feeding.

Reliable, high-capacity feeding systems deliver the consistent bale quality you demand. An exclusive rotary feeder is standard on the 570, 575 and 580, while the time-proven Flow-Action® feeder is used on the 565.

Rugged bale chamber is designed for better bale formation. Six hay dogs hold charges in place for firm, quality bales.
Fast plunger speed and long 30-inch plunger stroke maximize baler capacity. Speed is set from 79 to 93 SPM, depending on the model. The strong plunger packs uniform, dense bales in all crop conditions. High-strength steel is used throughout the plunger mechanism, and the plunger rides on sealed ball bearings and white-iron slide blocks for consistent performance and minimum maintenance.

Proven twine knotters or wire twisters go thousands of bales without a miss. Gear drives make them even easier to keep in time. Twisters are available on the 570 and 575 only.

Add the 72 bale thrower to increase your productivity while baling by throwing bales—as they’re made—right into your bale wagon.

Heavy-duty tongue attaches directly to the axle (not the bale chamber) to keep towing stresses from passing through the chamber. Two field positions are available for use with various tractor widths. Optional hydraulic tongue swing allows you to use hydraulic muscle to swing the baler into transport or working position quickly and easily.
The tapered roller bearings and heat-treated, alloy-steel gears of the main-drive gearbox run in oil for smooth, quiet working.

A power-pivot PTO is standard on all models. You can make tight turns with less wear on the universal joints.

Optional bale chutes include a quarter-turn bale chute that drops bales on their sides so twine is kept away from the ground to prevent rotting. Bales are placed in a proper position for retrieval by automatic bale wagon. The optional triple-purpose chute supports bales as they leave the chamber, and can be set to roll bales to the left, away from next windrow.

Auxiliary lights allow for night baling and include a red warning light for transport. Standard on 580, optional on other models.

Model BC5050

The New Holland BC5050 is an economical 14 x 18 baler that delivers proven performance, durability and capacity—perfect for family-sized farms.

The adjustable feeder back lets you control crop flow into the bale chamber. Simply loosen three bolts on each side, set at the desired position, and then retighten the bolts.
Tension springs are the economical way to adjust bale tension. A one-half inch increase in spring tension equals 600 pounds of increased force.

Model BC5080

You make the most of every minute with the rugged, high-output New Holland 580. The 580 is fast, dependable, and makes solid, quality 16 x 18 bales that are easier to handle with automatic bale wagons. Big-scale hay growers and custom operator choose the 580 because it makes short work of big haying jobs, and keeps running strong, year after year.

A replaceable bale chamber bottom increases the life of the entire bale chamber—a big asset in sandy soil and abrasive conditions.
The hydraulic doors work with hydraformatic bale tension to control pressure on all sides of the bale. This helps deliver firm, square-shouldered bales.
The oversized twine box is perfect for handling large balls of twine.

  • Super-Sweep pickup: 75 inches wide; 80 inches (flare)
  • 156 teeth on six bars (78 double fingers)

   You get a big six-ball twine box on the 570. Conveniently located at the rear of the baler, the box has a hinged lid to keep twine clean and dry.

All New Holland balers feature wide, Super-Sweep pickups to get every bit of your valuable crop. The 565 and 570 have a 65-inch pickup without flare, 70 inches with the flare. The pickup for the 575 and 580 measures 75 inches without flare, 80 inches with flare.

Multiple rows of pickup teeth work between narrow flanged guards, saving stems and protein-rich leaves. Pickup teeth are made of durable music wire for extra-long life. Guards also protect tines from damage.

Compare the Super-Sweep pickup tooth (on the left) to the straight tooth used on ordinary pickups. That extra curve makes the difference in gathering more crops.

Floating windguard controls the windrow and forms a smooth mat for positive feeding.

You can manually raise and latch the pickup into transport position. An optional hydraulic pickup lift allows you to raise or lower the pickup as needed to adjust to differing terrain without your leaving the tractor seat.

Pickup gauge wheel guides the pickup smoothly across the changing terrain and protects pickup teeth. It’s adjustable to five positions.

Belt-driven pickup acts as a slip clutch to prevent overloads. The pickup can be backed up without damaging the pickup teeth (“lost motion drive”).

High-capacity New Holland feeding systems deliver the consistent bale quality you demand. The rotary feeder is standard on the 570, 575 and 580, while the time-proven Flow-Action® feeder is used on the 565. Both feeding systems are chain driven for durability, and are easy to service and maintain. You can adjust either system to match a variety of crop conditions—from alfalfa to slippery grasses.

Rotary Feeding System - Models 570, 575, 580

This award-winning design was recognized by the American Society of Agricultural Engineers for "excellence in engineering innovation and design for a feeding system that provides improved bale quality, in a variety of crops, with minimal adjustment and maintenance."

A mechanically simple system, the rotary feeder consists of heavy-duty, paired rotating tines and a feeder fork.

The adjustable double packer fork folds the hay into the bale case. It is easy to adjust to handle various crops for consistent bale formation.

The system is timed to keep material flowing evenly into the bale chamber, by allowing the tines to overlap for smooth, continuous crop movement. The smooth, even flow of material through the baler:

  • reduces leaf loss
  • delivers top capacity
  • produces square, uniform bales that automatic bale wagons can pick up more easily
  • produces bales that can be stacked more efficiently. 

Flow-Action® Feeder - Model 565

The time-proven Flow-Action® feeding system uses six feeder tines mounted on a long feeder bar which runs on sealed roller bearings for quiet, friction-free operation. The tines measure just the right amount of crop and gently move it to the bale chamber. Leaves don’t shatter—and that means a higher-quality bale. Plus, two sets of the tines are adjustable to handle difficult crops.

The New Holland 72 bale thrower can completely fill an 18-foot wagon with bales up to 38 inches long and 65 pounds in weight without restricting baler capacity (higher bale weights are possible). The 72 is compatible with the 565, 570 and 575.

A simple, clean design allows for easy adjustment and servicing.
Strong, durable diamond-tread belts provide reliable performance.

Tractor-mounted distance control toggle switch makes it easy to change the throwing speed of the belts to change the distance bales are thrown. The thrower can also be set to drop bales directly on the ground if needed, without removing it from the baler.
A distance indicator lets you know at a glance the relative distance bales are thrown.

Direction control allows you to change the position of the thrower. When you move the tractor remote control valve, a double-acting hydraulic cylinder pivots the thrower up to 30 degrees left or right, for turning or baling on a contour.

A wagon hitch attaches to the baler axle to keep towing stresses where they belong. It adjusts to narrow road width for easy transport.

Rod spacers allow you to control apron spacing when baling light, springy, or semi-cured material.
