Case IH has redesigned the new LB4 Series large square balers, making them significantly more efficient to help you maximize short baling windows. We encourage you to take a closer look at the new design by watching the LB4 square baler walkaround video from the recent Farm Progress Show.

The new design has increased capacity by as much as 20 percent, so you can get more done in a day without compromising bale density or shape. Inside, the LB4 Series balers feature a high-inertia flywheel that is 19 percent larger than previous models, which results in improved performance in uneven windrows. The new, high-capacity pickup features a roller windguard, a feed-assist roller and faster rpm’s to maximize crop flow into the baler. The gearbox runs at an astonishing 48 strokes per minute to put crop through the machine more quickly and more efficiently. With an industry-leading double knotter assembly, the reliable, heavy-duty direct-drive knitters provide outstanding reliability, minimizing miss ties.
Together, the new design elements create a product that is not only more efficient and reliable but also easier to use and maintain. The baler is two feet narrower, allowing for better visibility around the baler and easier transport. Most major service points can be accessed by opening just one easy-open service door at ground level, reducing complexity and maintenance time.
The LB4 large square balers also come equipped with steering sensors that interface with the intuitive AFS Pro 700 display to more efficiently help producers build the perfect hay bale.
Many other parts of the baler have been reinforced for better wear and longer life, including the all-new, heavy-duty frame on the pickup and reel.
