Case IH RB565 Premium Round Baler

Five-Bar Pickup
A heavy-duty five-bar pickup combined with the roller windguard gives the RB565 Premium and wide pickup balers added durability and performance. The pickup reel has a total of 160 curved steel tines with a rubber base and is more than 6.5 feet (2 meters) in length from outside to inside tine.​

New Overshot Feeding System
One of the defining features of the new RB565 round baler is an overshot feeding system that provides more aggressive feeding into the bale chamber. A series of 20 tines on the feeder move crop from the outside of the pickup to the center, which results in a more consistent crop mat and less crop hesitation.​

Heavy-Duty Pickup Reel
The newly designed pickup reel is built for tough conditions: a two-piece bar design with five solid tine bars and no joint at reel spider keeps you rolling longer and with fewer repairs. Stronger tines last five times longer in field tests, and full-height pickup dividers keep tines aligned and reduce the possibility of damage, even in corn stalks.​

Pickup Gauge and Gathering Wheels
Another innovation that improves pickup, particularly in dry, light crops, is the pickup-mounted gathering wheels. The tines of these wheels gather the edges of the windrows and ensure the maximum amount of crop is picked up. For pickup flotation, new quick-adjust castering gauge wheels better follow contours and lessen the need for the operator to raise the pickup on sharp turns. ​
