Whether you're a hobby farmer or small scale livestock producer, you'll get the perfect combination of economy and productivity with the new 459E Round Baler – the newest member in the E Series line of value-spec John  Deere equipment. The 459E replaces our popular 459 Standard baler and comes in two models: netwrap and twine. The net wrap model gives you a 75 percent reduction in bale wrapping time and up to 18 percent reduction in spoilage compared to our previous twine-only balers. That means you'll speed up baling and improve bale quality. The six rugged DiamondTough™ belts cover 90 percent of the bale chamber, providing up to 20 percent greater belt coverage than some competitive balers. This reduces leaf loss, captures more crop, and further adds to bale quality. And thanks our short 10.5-inch diameter strippers your crop will have to travel 1.5 in. less distance to the pickup than the competition which means you'll get more hay in every bale you make. You get all this plus the features that come standard on all 9 Series machines including Diamond™ chains, an adjustable hitch, BaleTrak™ Pro monitor, and much more. Save time. Save money. Save room in your machine shed for the 459E Round Baler.

As the hay enters the forming chamber from the pickup, belts turn the hay immediately to form a tight, dense core. 

Incoming hay then feeds between the bale and the lower-gate roll. Hay is tightly compressed into smooth, dense layers as it enters the bale. 
Chaffing is greatly reduced to prevent loss and retain hay quality in the bale.

 

 

Maintains uniform bale density throughout the bale-forming process

 

The 9 Series Round Balers come standard with an adjustable hitch. This feature allows the hitch height to be adjusted to optimize crop-feeding performance. Due to the wide array of tractor tire sizes and drawbar heights, hitch adjustment may be necessary to get the proper feed opening of the baler. The adjustable hitch eliminates the need for the 51-mm (2-in.) thick tractor drawbar kit (AE57344) because it has a wider opening.

 

John Deere 459E Round Baler Adjustable Hitch

 

Benefits of the adjustable hitch:

  • Ability to match baler to numerous tire sizes

  • Allows for drawbar height to fall within 330 mm to 559 mm (13 in. to 22 in.) from top of drawbar to the ground

  • Eliminates narrow feed opening on baler which can cause plugging

  • Allows pickup head to follow terrain without missing crop

 

Mounted in front of the baler wheels and directly below the bale chamber, the pickup hugs the ground for clean crop retrieval. Hay movement is minimized.

 

John Deere 459E Round Baler Wheels

 

V-belt driven

-449, 459E, and 459 Baler pickups are 116.6 cm (45.9 in.) wide

-559 and 569 Baler pickups are 156 cm (61.4 in.) wide

 

Large reel shaft and reel bearing

The small-diameter, low-profile pickup allows for good ground gauging and clean crop retrieval.

Handles large, heavy windrows of hay and high-moisture crops

Feeds hay directly to the forming chamber to reduce crop loss

Low-profile pickup minimizes hay lift to reduce chaffing to retain hay quality

Side flares prevent hay from blowing off the pickup ends and reduce hay loss.

The closely spaced pickup teeth extend to the baler side sheets to help build straight-edged bales.
Standard on regular and MegaTooth™ pickups, compressor rods are contoured to control hay over the pickup radius for positive feeding. The compressor rack can be adjusted upward or downward to match the volume of material in windrow and can be easily removed to match crop conditions.

 

The adjusting crank positions the pickup to the desired operating height to match crop or field conditions.

 

John Deere 459E Round Baler Crank Positions

 

An optional hydraulic pickup lift cylinder is available as an attachment.

  • Makes raising for transport or clearing obstructions easy
  • Crank handle serves as a down stop
  • Adapts to regular, MegaTooth and MegaWide™ Plus pickups
  • Hydraulic pickup lift comes standard on premium machines

 

John Deere's 17.8-cm (7-in.) wide diamond-tread design ensures fast bale starts and grips the bale to prevent slippage and reduce chaffing. The treads are self-cleaning to reduce carryover.

John Deere 459E Round Baler Wide Diamond Tread

 

The belts are staggered to reduce the loss of fine material and are closely spaced to contain the hay for fast, easy starts.

The belts enclose 91 percent of the bale width to reduce the loss of fine material and retain hay quality.

The staggered belt roll design enables any loose hay under or behind the belts to be returned to the pickup and into the baler.

This design helps to prevent buildup at the front of the baler, which could cause hay loss and belt or splice damage.

 

The 449 and 459E Balers use three-ply belts. The belts are constructed of three-ply nylon-polyester combination:

 

John Deere 459E Round Baler Three Ply Belt

 

  • They have the strength to handle heavy-shock loads and help to maintain consistent belt length.
  • Polyester is used for increased strength and reduced belt stretch.
 

The 449 and 459E Balers use extra-service-life, rectangular, wire-belt splices:

 

John Deere 459E Round Baler Wire Belt Splice

 

  • Flat surface reduces wear on the splice as the belt travels around the rolls.
  • Strong hook shape increases the splice life as the belt flexes.

The material thickness and bend radius resist the opening of hook points and reduce metal fatigue.

 

The BaleTrak Pro monitor-controller is included with the automatic electric tie option and the Edge-to-Edge option on the 459E. The monitor sounds an alarm for near-full, full, and oversized bales.

 

John Deere 459E Round Baler BaleTrak Pro Monitor

 

  • Monitor beeps once to notify the operator to even-up the bale prior to reaching the desired size.
  • Monitor beeps twice when the bale reaches the desired size.

    • If the operator continues to feed hay into the baler, the monitor will sound continuously to warn of an oversized bale.

  • Bale shape bars are not available on the 449 or 459E Round Balers. The 449 and 459E Round Balers allow for adjustment of twine settings from the cab by using the BaleTrak Pro Monitor.
  • The number of wraps on the Edge-to-Edge netwrap option on the 459E can be set with the BaleTrak Pro.

The audible level of the monitor can be adjusted.

 

Diamond Chain's Diamond Series is an American-made product that is engineered, manufactured, and assembled in Indianapolis, Indiana since 1890. Diamond Chain’s unrivaled experience, unsurpassed quality, and unparalleled performance are the keys to building an industry-leading roller chain, because when it comes to performance, nothing outlasts a Diamond.

 

What gives Diamond Chain its superior chain performance?

 

Materials

 

John Deere 459E Round Baler Diamond Chain

 

Diamond Chain uses raw materials that meet exacting standards for metal grade, mechanical properties, carbon, and alloy content to ensure the minimization of impurities that impact tensile and fatigue strength.

 

These proprietary standards enable Diamond Chain components to maintain tighter tolerances throughout the fabrication and assembly process for a finished product with unparalleled quality, performance, and longevity.

 

Fabrication

 

While roller chain may appear to be a simple product, the number of components in a 3-m (10-ft) section of 40-pitch chain totals 1200 pieces - each a potential point of failure.

 

Diamond Chain designs each component to exacting dimensional standards and has a rigorous quality control system in place to ensure that only qualified pieces reach the final assembly stage.

  1. Plates: inner and outer plates go through a four-stage pitch-hole process. A multi-stage process is utilized to create a maximum bearing area that is straight, smooth, and burr free.
  2. Pins: precision grinding ensures consistent fit and smooth travel.
  3. Rollers: seamless roller design and dimensional control allows for extrusion with near-perfect roundness.
  4. Bushings: dimensional control enables bushings to be extruded with uniform wall thickness and concentricity for smooth travel. Near-perfect roundness increases the effective bearing area for the pin.

 

Heat treatment

 

The Diamond Chain company heat treats components using dedicated carburizing furnaces set to precise temperatures.

 

Through strict control of both atmosphere and quench, Diamond Chain components receive maximum carbon penetration for a high-carbon surface and low-carbon core. The process ensures consistent depth of case hardening increasing strength, durability, and wear resistance.

 

Shot peening

 

The Diamond Chain company uses proprietary shot-peening machinery developed and custom made to ensure consistent intensity and coverage of components during the shot peen process.

 

This highly controlled process ensures that components receive the same level of treatment for a consistent compressive surface stress that helps to increase fatigue resistance.

 

Lubrication

 

Diamond understands the importance of proper lubrication and its impact on a chain's wear life. Diamond Chain uses both proprietary lubrication formula and hot dip application process on all lubricated roller chains. The hot dip process ensures complete coverage of components while the proprietary lubricant maintains maximum continuing surface retention following the treatment. Special additives in the lubricant further enhance corrosion protection and extend wear life.

 

Preloading

 

The final stage of the manufacturing and assembly process for each Diamond roller chain is the preloading stage. Preloading approximates the recommended maximum loading during usage and is done to firmly seat pins and bushings in place and eliminate any initial elongation that may take place.

 

Diamond Chain comes standard on all 9 Series Round Balers.

 

The 449 Round Baler has 60 Diamond chain for its upper drive roll chain and 60H for its lower drive roll chain.

 

The 459E, 459, 459 Silage Special, 559, and 559 Silage Special have 60H Diamond Chains for their upper and lower drive roll chains.

 

The 469, 469 Silage Special, 569, and 569 Silage Special have 80 Diamond Chains for their upper and lower drive roll chains.

 

The 469 Premium and 569 Premium Round Balers have 80H Diamond Chain for their upper and lower drive roll chains.

 

Diamond is a trademark of Diamond Chain Company Inc. Please visit its website for more information.

 

The 9 Series Round Balers have increased their durability by increasing the shafts and bearings on the top and bottom rolls of the baler. The size of the shafts and bearings are listed below:

  • 8 Series - 31.8-mm (1.25-in.) shaft and 90-mm (3.5-in.) outside diameter (OD) bearing (this bearing requires a quill assembly to fit in the roll)
  • 9 Series - 38.1-mm (1.5-in.) shaft and 130-mm (5.1-in.) OD bearing (this bearing does not require a quill assembly to fit in the roll)
  • 9 Series Premium - 44.5-mm (1.75-in.) shaft and 130-mm (5.1-in.) OD bearing

The #9 and #11 rolls receive the most wear and stress since they have the most surface area contact with the belts. The lower gate roll also carries the weight of the bale. By increasing the shaft size, strength is added to the baler. The larger bearings will run cooler, therefore, increasing the life of the bearings.

 

The CoverEdge surface wrap attachment is available on 459, 459 Silage Special, 559, 559 Silage Special, 469, 469 Silage Special, 469 Premium, 569, 569 Silage Special, and 569 Premium Round Balers. This attachment is an exclusive feature of 7 Series, 8 Series, and 9 Series Round Balers.
 
The CoverEdge surface wrap stretches over the edges of the bale to cover 15 percent more surface area on the bale. This added feature allows better weatherability by shedding water off the ends of the bale and increases marketability, due to less crop spoilage and a better-looking bale.

  • Features a simplified loading process design
    • Storage space is provided inside the surface wrap attachment for an extra roll of net wrap
  • Reduces crop loss during transportation
  • Reduces wrap time to only two turns of the bale
  • Ready to eject bale in seconds
    • Complete wrap and ejection time has been frequently observed to be less than 20 seconds for full-sized bales
  • Fewer turns than twine wrapping reduces loss of leaves and fine material

John Deere 459E Round Baler


 
On 459, 459 Silage Special, 559, 559 Silage Special, 469, 469 Silage Special, 569, and 569 Silage Special Round Balers, the BaleTrak™ Pro monitor-controller can automatically adjust twine or surface-wrap application to compensate for a revised bale-diameter setting or a smaller size when finishing up a field.
 
The operator just presses the wrap symbol on the BaleTrak™ Pro monitor-controller to initiate this command.
 
If running less than rated power take-off (PTO) speed, the slip-clutch alert/speed compensation option compensates the number of wraps selected for a bale. Without the slip-clutch alert/speed compensation option, the wrapping program is based on the rated PTO speed.

The operator can select twine or surface wrap with the ISOBUS monitor conveniently from the tractor seat.
