THE GALLIGNANI 5690 GOLD
Gallignani 5690 square baler is the ideal solution to combine robustness and productivity in all working conditions, being specifically designed for professionals, contractors and big farms. The 5690 model has established itself on the market as a professional baler that is designed to last and to give the best “when baling gets tough,” combining a heavy-duty and reliable structure with high productivity. The 5690 baler is available with twine or steel wire knotter and it’s ideal for collecting the most difficult crops such as corn stalks, sorghum and oats. The wide angle PTO drive shaft supplied as standard helps the movements and transport of the baler, so that all the operations come easy.
The pickup “Extra Large” measures 1.80 meters allowing a higher width of collection, also picking up a greater amount of crop within the compression chamber. Powered by a belt drive which also acts as a slipping clutch in the event of overload, the pickup “Extra Large” is made of 105 tines distributed in 21 rows protected by special steel bands.
The 5690 baler is equipped with two tines on the outer forks and three tines on the inner crank, ensuring a constant flow from the feeding to the compression chamber. The safety devices are present on the cranks, both the outer (shear bolt) and the inner (auto-reset spring system).
The 5690 baler has a standard pickup deflector with automatic opening that extends the width of collection. The standard pickup tyre makes the 5690 a suitable baler for any ground and soil condition, even harsh and un-even.
The 5690 baler is equipped with special hydraulic connections to use optional accessories. With the hydraulic lifting, the operator can raise or lower the pickup to adapt to different ground conditions without leaving the tractor seat. In the same way, the hydraulic offset can switch the drawbar position from working to the transport in a fast and easy way.
The special supporting foot keeps the drawbar raised and makes it perfect for parking the machine at rest. The stand is adjustable to be adapted to all grounds.
Being 60 centimetres in diameter and 123 kilograms in weight, the 5690 flywheel is the heaviest in its class, reducing the tractor requirements and ensuring the inertia of work even with very high flow in the feeding area. The flywheel is protected by a safety shear bolt.
The bale counter helps the work of large contractors, big farms and all the operators who sell the bales on the market. So many bales without ever losing count!
The two cranks, which are driven by a chain drive and can be adjusted manually by the operator, allow the shifting of the crop from the inlet to the compression chamber. In the event of overload, the outer crank is protected by a shear bolt while the inner one has an auto-reset spring system.
MAIN DRIVE CHAIN
The main drive chain with toothed gears ensures smooth and consistent work. The 73 centimetre plunger reaches 92 strokes per minute by benefit of a heavier counterweight, for bales even more heavy and compact. The wide angle PTO drive shaft allows optimum manoeuvrability of the baler even in tight spaces or difficult access.
BOX STOWING UP TO 9 TWINE BALLS
With the box stowing up to 9 twine balls, as well as hosting a tools storage compartment to improve serviceability, it will be possible to tie hundreds of bales without a stop.
The special Gallignani knotter is renowned for its precision and reliability. The centralized lubricating system is available as an option and simplifies the maintenance and proper functioning of the entire binder.
THE COMPRESSION CHAMBER AND CHUTE
The compression chamber and chute are designed to effectively keep the pressure and the shape of the bale while preserving the quality of the crop. The density level is adjustable by means of two manual register springs. Work lights to improve visibility and safety during towing and transport are available on request.
The 5690 baler has a reinforced compression chamber to obtain bales even more dense and heavy, thanks to the presence of 3 internal hammers and 2 side straw pressers. The plunger slides easily on sealed ball bearings and wear resistant iron guides for optimal movement with minimal maintenance.
Gallignani knotter has an adjustable brake which improves its performance. The special ceramic bushings are wear resistant and will not damage or break the twine. The bushings are further reinforced in the case of the iron wire knotter.
How to adjust the bale length? It’s so easy on Gallignani 5690 baler: just set the bale register to set the desired length, with a range from 30 to 130 centimetres.
HYDRAULIC PICKUP LIFTING
The hydraulic pickup lifting (optional) and the right hand wheel measuring 10.0/80-12 contribute to improve the accuracy of the collection.
LEFT HAND SIDE WHEEL
The left hand side wheel measures 10.0/75-15 and is ideal for following rough ground in all conditions.
