Focus III Control Terminal

The Focus III Terminal is a universal control terminal which can be used with other Kubota implements. It gives you full control of all functions from the tractor cab, shown on a high density digital color display. The Focus III terminal monitors and controls all necessary functions with all relevant parameters/information visible at a glance. The control box is also driving the binding automatically without any intervention from the operator.

Twine Tying

Automatic twine tying with the fast acting double tube system means simultaneous binding of both edges of the bale, keeping binding time to a minimum. Over crossing of twines in the center of the bale provides no loose ends at the end of the binding cycle.

Reduced Maintenance

The main bale chamber drive is a heavy duty pitch chain. This allows for a longer lifespan and reduced maintenance. The split drive gearbox ensures that power is distributed evenly, reducing wear and power requirements.

Baling Chamber

Kubota's BV4160 Econo bale chamber offers a combination of 3 rollers and 5 wide laced belts. This mixed chamber ensures a smooth bale start whatever the crop type, offering smooth bale rotation and reduced crop loss even in dry conditions. As the bale grows, the belt tensioning arm is subjected to steadily increasing resistance from two hydraulic cylinders and a spring tensioner – as the bale diameter grows, so does the bale's density. The result is a very firm bale.

Fork Feeder

Kubota's BV4160 Econo model is fitted with an efficient fork feeder intake system. This system provides a direct feed into the bale chamber. The wide opening allows almost unrestricted intake capacity for a fast and efficient baling process. In conjunction with a crop deflector, the fork feeder ensures a consistent crop flow into the bale chamber, which ensures high density bales. These models come with a 67" pick-up.

High Capacity Pick-Up

Kubota's small diameter pick-up offers superb in field performance. With its low profile design and closely spaced tines, Kubota balers can cleanly lift even the shortest crop. The pick-up is designed for high capacity and efficient intake, providing a smooth and even crop flow into the baler. BV4160 Econo produces bales that are 4’ wide by 5’5” tall.
