Massey Ferguson RB 3130F Protec (Protection baler & Professional Technology) combines all the benefits of a fixed chamber baler with the addition of an integrated wrapper device for baling and wrapping on the go. Bales are instantly protected from changeable weather and forage quality is preserved, freeing up the operator to stack or transport bales or begin harvesting in another field.

High Speed Pick-Up
Higher operating speeds are possible with the Massey Ferguson cam-less pick-up design.
With fewer moving parts, the cam-less pick-up is quieter, simpler and more reliable. Low maintenance and less adjustments save time and increase productivity.
The pick-up system has five tine bars with each one being spaced only 64mm apart, providing higher capacity and a smoother even feed at high speed.
On the Massey Ferguson round balers, the pick-up is positioned very closely to the rotor, therefore improving crop flow and reducing the risk of blockage.
Designed for optimum performance, Massey Ferguson Xtracut can be equipped with 13, 17 or 25 knives. Cutter units are fitted with the longest knives on the market, making sure that no material will pass through uncut.
Xtracut 17 and 25 feature two sets of hydraulically operated knife banks with separate control from the cab depending on customer requirements.
The operator can select:
- A single knife bank
- Both knife banks
- Disengagement of all knives
To maximise efficiency in the field and minimise downtime from crop blockages, the MF Round balers are fitted with the unique Hydroflexcontrol protection system which works in two stages:
Stage 1. Automatic mechanical floor cushioning to clear minor blockages
Stage 2. Hydraulically controlled floor lowering to clear major blockages
The first stage of Hydroflexcontrol allows movement of the front part of the feed chamber floor and will automatically prevent up to 80% of potential blockages and will keep you going without unnecessary downtime.
Should a major blockage occur, stage two of hydroflexcontrol is activated by the operator, and is cleared by lowering the rear of the feed table floor hydraulically from the cab, allowing for material to easily pass through, therefore minimizing downtime.
The bale chamber is made up of 18 Powergrip rollers which ensure an effective grasp and quicker bale rotation for higher density and improved bale shape.
Rollers with 10 ribs are made from a seamless solid tube. They are the industry benchmark for durability and performance, known for their proven design and capability to withstand the harshest environments.
The new, improved chamber has a ‘spiral’ form with slightly reduced diameter at the front thus improving feeding and bale rotation, increasing density and net grip when wrapping.
Varionet & Easy Loading System
Perfect wrapping of perfectly formed bales is provided by the Varionet system, saving cycle time, tying materials and preserving bales for safe handling and storage afterwards.
The tried and tested Varionet net wrapping system features a special net tensioning andspreading device that is capable of dealing with various widths and types of net, allowingfor fast wrapping of bales from edge to edge or over the edge.
Fitted as standard, the Easy Loading System (ELS) allows one spare roll to be carriedon the baler. Roll replacement can be made in a matter of minutes, thus extending yourtime in the field and increasing output.
Monitoring and Controls
Massey Ferguson ProTec is offered either with our E-Link Pro console, or with ISOBUS. They both have the same simple menu navigation, developed to ensure professional baling as well as advanced process monitoring by the operator.
E-Link Pro Monitor
The E-Link Pro monitor, standard on the MF RB 3130F Protec and optional for the MF RB 3130F Xtracut, has integrated ISOBUS technology and features a large bright screen which offers great visibility of multiple parameters, giving the operator more information and control of the baler. If a tractor is fitted with ISOBUS control it is also possible to use the tractor’s monitor to view all the key information about the tractor and the baler in one place. The baler wrapper combination is also fitted with a rear view camera for better control of wrapper. Specific field or customer information, such as the number of bales or hours worked, can easily be set and collected with the Wizard menu and later exported via a USB connection for easy management of records and further perfomance analysis.
Both the RB baler and RB Protec baler/wrapper combo versions can be specified with ISOBUS connection for utilising tractor monitors.
Utilising a single in-cab terminal in the tractor for all implements reduces cab clutter and can make forsimpler and more accurate control by drivers who may carry out a wide range of operations with differentmachines.
Massey Ferguson is a world leading brand with extensive experience in hay and forage production on all continents.
The Massey Ferguson round baler range is built to last and designed to exceed your expectations…
The number of unique and patented features make our balers stand out from the crowd.
The Powersplit gearbox equally divides and transfers power to drive the rotor unit on one side and the roller drives on the other, reducing the overall power requirements by simplifying the drivelines. This results in a more efficient baler which uses less fuel.
Bearing Housing Design
The bale chamber can experience extreme loads with forces from all directions. The clever bearing housing design allows some movement of the rollers to eliminate major axial loads occurring during operation.
Automatic chain lubrication with individual adjustment for each chain guarantees sufficient oil supply, reduces maintenance time and extends chain service life. For added durability the highest quality chains are used throughout the baler.
Regular and sufficient lubrication of roller bearings is extremely important, particularly in adverse conditions, for example when baling silage. Centralized grease banks for roller bearing lubrication are located in convenient positions for easier access and reduced service time.
Bale Handling and Transfer
The new combination unit has a lower crop elevation angle, reducing the overall baler height. This feature improves stability, allowing safer and faster hillside operation. It also reduces back pressure in the feeding area, streamlining crop flow and minimising the risk of blockages.
In addition to the transfer arm, the new design features two active guiding plates on both sides of the baler clearly directing the bale to the centre of the wrapper plate allowing for a faster and more secure transfer cycle. For added safety on hillside conditions the unique slope transfer mode allows for the transfer arm to move more slowly while the wrapper ring is lifted higher to receive the bale. This ensures that the bale will be securely delivered to the wrapper even in sloping terrain.
Bale Wrapping and Discharge
Once the bale is transferred to the centre of the wrapper table, a hydraulically driven wrapper ring begins its rotation even before the tailgate is fully closed, completing the cycle well before the next bale is formed. Designed to withstand the heaviest bale loads, the robust frame with its quiet running gear operates at up to 35 rpm smoothly for trouble free wrapping, bale after bale.
To ensure gentle bale unloading, the wrapping table is lowered, thus minimising the bale’s rolling speed, preventing film damage and maintaining the ideal bale shape. An optional bale tipper puts bales on their ends, preventing them from rolling away and making for easier loading on the trailer. The operator can also choose between automatic and manual unloading modes.
Massey Ferguson Protec range is equipped with large low-pressure tires for reducing ground compaction.Besides, they permit greater stability and maneuverability on headlands without damaging turf also during very wet conditions.
The hydraulically driven wrapper table consists of two rollers and three endless belts mounted on a welded frame for extra durability. A sensor underneath the middle belt will allow for wrapping to begin only after the bale is fully positioned on the table, while four large side support rollers keep the bale centred while wrapping.
The wrapping ring is driven by a set of two rubber rollers, ensuring plenty of gripping surface, eliminating slippage and reducing noise levels.
Film Roll Holders
Twelve film roll holders are conveniently located at a comfortable height on both sides of the baler and with two additional rolls installed on the wrapper, increase uptime in the field.
An external control panel on the back of the baler allows control of the tailgate, wrapping ring and table and the film clamps for easy film roll change, maintenance or cleaning.
In transport mode the wrapper ring is folded forwards, reducing the overall machine length to just 5.9m for safer transport and improved manoeuvrability.
