The baler features a choice of 2.25m or 2.40m pick-up with a camless design offering higher working speed, reduced maintenance and reduced noise levels.
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 round balers 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 knive
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 into the bale chamber, therefore minimizing downtime.
The bale chamber side panels are securely aligned during the production process with two large diameter tubes welded to the frame, providing a hardwearing and rigid connection for extended durability and better bale density control.
Four durable, double-ply, seamless belts have excellent grip on the bale. With two stretch-resistant core layers made of a special synthetic material, the belts can withstand high loads when forming heavy silage bales
A patented bale formation system features a sliding tailgate that moves downwards as the bale forms allowing the growing bale to move backwards. The bale chamber has a small bale start-off section with two additional rollers for better bale core formation.
Constant Pressure System
The Massey Ferguson Constant Pressure System (CPS) retains pressure using two large springs during bale formation, thus maintaining the correct pressure from the core outwards. Once the core is formed, the hydraulic system takes over, which increases the pressure until the complete bale is formed. This keeps the bale surface pressure constant throughout the
The end-result is uniform round bales with a firm and consistent shape, making them easy to handle and store with excellent crop conservation.
Depending on the baler specification, the maximum hydraulic system pressure in the bale tensioning arms can reach 140 or 180Bar.
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.
The E-Link Pro monitor, standard on the MF 4160V Protec integrated ISOBUS technology and features a large bright screen whichoffers great visibility of multiple parameters, giving the operator more information and control of the baler. If a tractor is fitted withISOBUS control it is also possible to use the tractor’s monitor to view all the key information about the tractor and the baler in oneplace. The baler wrapper combination is also fitted with a rear view camera for better control of wrapper.One button push changes the satallite wrapper from working position to transport for fast field changes. All functions including knifebanks, net application programming and Hydroflexcontrol can be controlled from here. Specific field or customer information, such as the number of bales or hours worked, can easily be set and collected with the Wizardmenu and later exported via a USB connection for easy management of records and further performance analysis.
The MF 4160V Protec baler 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.

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 effcient baler which uses less fuel.
Full width side doors provide easy access for maintenance. The smooth surface design prevents dust accumulation beneath the panels while secure locking prevents unintended opening and potential damage.
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 Wrapping & 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 manoeuvrability 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.
