These days roughly one in every 10 big balers sold worldwide is a KRONE BiG Pack 1290 HDP. This machine delivers high-density 120 x 90 cm square bales.

Harvesting a crop that yields 4 tons of straw per hectare and producing 500 kg bales rather than the 400 kg from a conventional big baler cuts the number of bales to be collected by two per hectare. Even though the machine uses higher quality twine – KRONE recommends the KRONE excellent HDP Strong² – twine costs drop by up to 25% courtesy of the higher baling density.
The profitability and cost-effectiveness of straw baling depends to a great extent on the baling, transportation and storage costs. KRONE has the answer with the HDP system. The up to 25% higher density bales cut the production costs per ton, increasing the profit potential of professional straw sales. A BiG Pack HDP is your guarantee of success. It’s the smart way to work.
The HDP concept
Back in 2003, KRONE took an in-depth look at how to optimize the straw haulage chain.
Large-scale bale handling involves the following aspects:
- collection and handling is time consuming
- expensive labor
- expensive logistics
- inadequate use of truck capacity
- large storage capacities needed
The only way to optimize all parameters was to increase bale weights by increasing densities.
And so the concept of the High-Density Press was born.
