ROLLANT 540 RF / RC / RC COMFORT.

The concept design.

What is our idea of leading-edge technology? Probably much the same as yours. Dynamic and exciting – because state-of-the-art technology should make your working day easier. It should be reliable, maintenance-friendly, and intuitive. That’s why we keep working on innovative new solutions.

Intake. A good attacking forward takes every opportunity.

Crop flow.

  • 2.10-m working width
  • Cam controlled pick-up for optimum crop flow
  • Higher performance with forward-mounted roller crop press or double-roller crop press (optional equipment)
  • Better bale shape, thanks to generously dimensioned intake augers

2.10-m working width – for total work performance.

The ROLLANT 540 has a pick-up working width of 2.10 m with 140 rpm for optimum crop flow. This means the pick-up can handle even the widest swaths with no crop soiling problems. The short crop plate guides the crop safely to the rotor, even in small and uneven swaths. The spring steel tines are flexible, which means they can be used even in the toughest conditions. The spring steel tines in the pick-up are closely spaced, ensuring that the field is raked clean. Another feature is the pick-up's location well forward on the baler, giving the driver maximum visibility from the tractor seat. This makes it easier to adapt the speed to the swath size, and thus monitor the crop flow and prevent blockages from occurring.

  • Cam controlled pick-up for optimum crop flow

    The cam controlled pick-up adjusts to any ground contours, even at high working speeds and while negotiating curves. Large castor guide wheels, with tool-free adjustment, keep you safely on track at all times.

  • Single- or double-roller crop press – for higher performance.

    The cam controlled pick-up adjusts to any ground contours, even at high working speeds and while negotiating curves. Large castor guide wheels, with tool-free adjustment, keep you safely on track at all times.

  • Generously dimensioned lateral stub augers, for tightly packed bale edges.

    In preparation for the baling operation, generously dimensioned side augers trim the crop down to the bale chamber width. This results in very firm bale edge zones, for excellent bale stability. The benefits for you: the bales can cope with rough handling, transport and storage, without immediately losing their shape.

ROTO FEED. Getting on with the job means finishing up faster.

  • Optimal crop flow and even filling with ROTO FEED
  • Helical rotor for perfect bale shape and high bale weights
  • High performance plus simplicity, thanks to feed rotor
ROLLANT 540

New arrangement of rotor tines.

If you don't need to chop the crop, and want large bale weights and high performance, the ROTO FEED ensures a smooth crop flow from the pick-up into the baling chamber.

Maximum throughput and even crop flow, with ROTO FEED.

Standard with the ROTO FEED system – the feed rotor tines are arranged in spirals, guaranteeing uniform intake and high-power fast throughput. The system is ideal for sensitive forage types, such as alfalfa. The helical arrangement protects the tines and delivers first-class forage quality, naturally with the optimum bale shape.

ROLLANT 540

ROTO CUT Heavy Duty. But ultimately, it's all about cutting power and performance.

  • High-performance heavy-duty rotor for silage
  • Perfect cut quality (heavy-duty double knife attachment, aggressive knives)
  • 15-knife cutting rotor
  • Quality milk requires a quality forage crop.

    Energy-rich, appetising silage with optimum lactic acid fermentation is the basic requirement for high milk yields in the shed. That means three things: short-chopped forage, high bale pressure and the exclusion of oxygen. For the chopping requirement, the ROLLANT has a solidly built heavy-duty high-performance chopping rotor made from double-hardened boron steel, with helically arranged double tines. The individual knife protection device provides effective protection, ensuring consistent cutting quality and boosting knife service life. Optional tungsten carbide coated knives are available on request.

  • The ROLLANT 540: Cutting-edge design.

    Fast, precise and effective – that best describes the operation of the 15-knife cutting rotor, with four-star 8.00-mm-thick tines, arranged in pairs. The recipe for outstanding forage quality. The crop is accurately cut into short portions, for better compacting and easier unpacking. ROTO CUT allows cut lengths of as low as 70 mm, still with outstanding quality. High rpm speed allows more than 8,400 cuts/min.

  • Intersecting set between quality and reliability.

    The 15-knife cutting rotor is designed for maximum reliability and throughput. In the COMFORT variant, the required number of knives (0, 7, 8, 15) can be set from the driver's seat. The knife teeth of double-hardened steel are highly efficient, and have a long service life. Four-star double tines draw the crop through the knife support, with more than 8,400 cuts/min for top chopping quality. As in the 400 series, the CLAAS scraper system keeps the space between and inside the double tines clear, for maximum operating reliability – in all harvesting conditions.

  • Knives removed in a flash.

    The entire cutterbar can be pivoted hydraulically from the tractor cab, while the bale chamber can be opened for easy fitting and removal of the knives from above.

ROLLANT 540

It's not just sports cars that can be brought closer to the ground.

  • Hydraulic floor-lowering function to adjust to the crop material flow
  • Early warning system signals the floor's movements
  • Blockages can be cleared from the comfort of the cab
ROLLANT 540

Hydraulically lowered floor: The ROLLANT PRO.

Baling is hard work, and speed is of the essence. That means high daily throughput rates, and intelligent systems to help the driver get the job done. These include a floor-lowering function, for active adaptation to the crop flow. Automatic lowering by up to 30 mm allows the continuous intake even of irregular swaths, with no impact on cutting quality.

ROLLANT 540

Early warning system helps avoid blockages.

The movement of the floor is indicated on the control terminal as visual and acoustic signals via a sensor. This means you can register the threat of blockages in time, and react accordingly – from the comfort of the cab. You can use the baler to its full capacity while avoiding downtime due to blockages.

ROLLANT 540

Any blockages that do occur can be easily and quickly cleared using the operator terminal, without having to leave the cab. The drop floor opens up, and the rotor sweeps the blockage material straight into the bale chamber. In machines with a chopping rotor, the knife pressure is shut off with a pushbutton control before the opening movement of the drop floor. When it closes again, the knives swing back in automatically.
