High performance in an efficient package � this describes the KUHN LSB 870 perfectly. The efficient driveline results in a low power requirement.
The LSB 870 is a 80 x 70 cm baler and features a 15-knife OMNICUT system, with integrated cassette system for easy knife access. There is also a non-cutting model available. Both models are equiped with an INTEGRAL ROTOR that provides high-performance bale throughput in diverse crop conditions. KUHN's exclusive POWER DENSITIY pre-chamber system ensures consistently filled wads and rock-hard bales regardless of the condition of the swath.The bales are tied together by the TWIN STEP system, a knotting system that compromises of a single knot and smart system that releases the twine tension during the knotting cycle.
The KUHN LSB 870 is ISOBUS compatible.

Your benefits

Consistent, dense and high-quality bales

The pre-chamber system ensures consistently filled wads and results in heavy, square-edged bales.

POWER DENSITY � The KUHN Solution

Consistently shaped bales provide more than just aesthetic appeal. A dense, consistently filled bale represents quality in every form. Square bales are easy to handle and stack. In addition, they are much more stable during transport than a poorly formed bale. In silage applications, a square-edged bale indicates less air content, resulting in higher quality feed. The KUHN POWER DENSITY system, a single feeder fork design, proves that a well-engineered, active pre-chamber filling system can eliminate complexity. This pre-chamber system ensures consistently filled wads and results in heavy, square-edged bales regardless of the swath condition. The single feeder fork combines two functions into one mechanism, eliminating unneeded components and complexity and resulting in lower maintenance cost.

POWER DENSITY - How does it work?

  1. The INTEGRAL ROTOR actively delivers the crop to the pre-chamber.
  2. The feeder fork (blue) actively fills the pre-chamber.
  3. The single-acting feeder fork continues to form the bale wad until the measuring plate (red) is pushed back with a predetermined force.
  4. Once the measuring plate is pushed back, it activates the second function of the feeder fork system. The fork makes a different movement that empties the pre chamber and pushes the perfectly formed wad into the bale chamber.
Power Density - The KUHN Solution

The bale chamber

With the 3.4m-long bale chamber of the LSB 870, there is plenty of space to form a perfect bale. The combination of aggressive retainers and a specific pressure door shape brings an aggressive compaction and gentle expansion of the bale. 46 plunger strokes per minute result in a high compaction capacity. The plunger is guided via 4 large rollers with a diameter of 125 mm for maximum service life.

TWIN STEP knotting system

The unique TWIN STEP knotting system consists of a single knotter and smart system that releases the twine tension during the knotting cycle. The result is a secure, easy-to-adjust knotting system. While baling, the knotters (blue) are at rest and the twine is guided by the twine tension release lever (red), in the vertical position. Tension is held on the twine to ensure maximum density in the bale.

Step 1: As the bale reaches the desired length, the needles (grey) are activated and move upward towards the knotters to start the knotting cycle.
Step 2: By pivoting backwards, the tension lever (red) releases the twine and consequently reduces tension to the knotter during the knotting cycle. This guarantees a perfect knotting process.

Optimal crop intake to meet your needs

With a pick-up width of 230 cm, the baler is capable of working in all swaths

Optimal crop pick-up

The pick-up of the KUHN LSB is designed to match the full capacity of the machine. With an intake width of 230 cm, the baler is capable of working in all swaths. The reliable cam track system will not let you down, even in the harshest conditions. To adapt the machine to your fields, you have the choice between fixed and pivoting pick-up wheels.� The pivoting pick-up wheels are semi-pneumatic and therefore ideal for rough terrain and stony soils.
  1. To better meet your operation's specific needs, there are two intake options available for the LSB 870. Select from one of our patented INTEGRAL ROTORS � The OPTIFEED non-cutting rotor or the 15-knife OMNICUT cutting rotor.

INTEGRAL ROTOR Technology

All KUHN LSB balers, cutting or non-cutting versions, are equipped with the INTEGRAL ROTOR technology. This simple, maintenance-free intake system ensures even feeding regardless of the various (crop) conditions. The short distance between the rotor and pick-up yields an outstanding crop flow. This force-fed intake makes higher forward speeds possible for outstanding productivity and reduced crop damage.
The rotor tines are made out of Hardox�wear plate and offer excellent durability in abrasive crop conditions.

Non-cutting: OPTIFEED rotor

The 48 cm diameter OPTIFEED rotor design, where rotor tines - made out of Hardox� wear plate - and auger function are combined on one shaft, helps even out the swath by spreading the crop evenly for consistent bales every time. When crop cutting is not required, the OPTIFEED system ensures a controlled and consistent crop flow to the pre-chamber. With the rotor, an additional level of protection is given to the machine.

Cutting: OMNICUT 15 knifes (OC 15)

The OMNICUT 15-knife rotor (OC 15) offers a cutting length of 45 mm. The KUHN patented rotor tine shape ensures a low power requirement and a perfect cutting quality. The knives, individually protected against overload by a spring, can be changed easily with the standard integrated cassette system.

Robust driveline and maximum security

Gearboxes and shafts ensure a perfectly synchronised machine with easy maintenance.

Robust driveline

Synchronised drive of components is achieved through the gearboxes and shafts. This ensures a perfectly synchronised machine with easy maintenance. The driveline layout is simple, clean, and easy to service and maintain while minimising the overall number of moving parts.

Equipment

Productivity at your fingertips<br />User interfaces are the key to achieving the productivity you expect from your KUHN machine. We listened carefully to the users of our machines to develop our new user interfaces and terminals. The objective is to have a clear view of what your machine is doing at any time and to have all important settings at your fingertips. This ensures that you have full control of your machine.
